Pumadur HF, a hygienic, hard wearing flooring systems developed by flooring specialists Resdev have been installed at one of Bella Fresh Foods’ main production sites. A former dry storage warehouse has been repurposed to create a safe, clean and practical food processing facility. This food grade flooring exceeds industry standards in line with the organisation’s commitment to performance and cleanliness.
Leading manufacturer of pre-cut fruits and vegetables
Bella Fresh Foods is one of the USA’s leading manufacturers and distributors of pre-cut fresh fruits and vegetables, operating from three state-of-the-art facilities, producing a wide variety of pre-cut fruits, vegetables and salad mixes for the food service and retail industries. The new area will be used to clean, process and package fresh and frozen vegetables.
Food safe resin flooring capable of withstanding impact and abrasion damage
In a competitive tender process, specialist contractor Spectrum Industrial Flooring specified Pumadur HF, one of Resdev’s hygienic products, as part of their bid, based on the functionality and workability of these high performance polyurethane resin products. With multiple sections to the floor, covering an area of 15,000ft2, the installers needed reliable materials capable of withstanding impact and abrasion damage as well as providing resistance to aggressive cleaning procedures.
Drains for wash down procedures
With the existing concrete flooring in a good condition, the Spectrum team prepared the surface by shot blasting the area and diamond grinding the perimeter edges before installing multiple trench drains to allow for proposed wash down procedures. Pumadur HF was then laid across the entire area. This heavy duty, water-dispersed polyurethane floor screed features a lightly textured surface for added safety and provides a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.
Pumadur CG used for coving
Pumadur CG was then applied to coat cove bases and curbs. This coving system was developed for use with Pumadur polyurethane flooring systems to give the totally seamless finish preferred for areas where hygiene is a particular consideration. In addition, this combination of products is capable of withstanding aggressive cleaning regimes calling for 160oF/71oC hot water under high pressure with ambient temperatures at 40oF/4oC.
The project was finished within the specified two-week time frame to the client’s total satisfaction.
