Hygienic design solutions for food preparation and production areas
Every day standards for hygiene and durability have become paramount to design in food process and production areas. There are three principle areas of contamination than can be reduced by utilizing hygienic wall protection, flooring and drainage.
Drains, floors and curbing are often overlooked when designing a food related area, but they are three of the top five place where bacteria can grow. This bacterial growth leads to foodborne illness and disaster for the offending company. This white paper will discuss the latest in products and design details that help reduce overall risk and provide long term protection and value to the end user.
As food and beverage companies in the United States are pushing to improve plant hygiene, sanitary design standards have begun to take shape. While there are many building products on the market that satisfy a specific need, there has yet to be a study investigating the performance and compatibility of multiple products being used together in the same space, with the same exposures. The Hygienic Design Committee was formed to examine, compile, and share its findings, using research and test results from three world-leading manufacturers in their respective fields of expertise: Stonhard, manufacturer and installer of resinous floors; Blücher, manufacturer of HygienicPro drains; and PolySto, manufacturer of hygienic curbs. This research methodically evaluates the effectiveness of each product as well as seeks to validate their connections to and compatibility with one another in contributing to the overall improvement in plant hygiene.
