BEST FLOORS FOR WINERY PRODUCTION AREAS
What Flooring is Best for Winery Production Areas?
Winery production areas face heavy wear from forklift traffic, organic acids, and caustic chemicals. In addition, thermal shock and thermal cycling from hot water washdowns can significantly diminish the life of a floor in this environment.
Poured-in-place, high-impact resistant, urethane mortar floors are ideal in winery production areas because they exhibit excellent abrasion and chemical-resistant characteristics. In particular, they are the superior choice for withstanding thermal shock in comparison to standard epoxy systems or other flooring types. Since urethane mortar floors are seamless, they are easy to clean and maintain and eliminate the collection of dirt and bacteria in joints or crevices where they would otherwise harbor and potentially grow.
