Flowfresh SR is a system proven in several hundred implementations in fish plants around the world. This state-of-the-art flooring is made with polyurethane resins and carefully selected aggregates and cements. It contains Polygiene® - an antibacterial additive based on silver ions that reduces the amount of bacteria on its surface by up to 99%, and the addition of quartz sand gives it anti-slip properties to prevent slips and falls of people walking on it.
We were persuaded to use Flowfresh flooring in our new production hall by a reference list of facilities in our industry and the prestigious certification from the HACCP International organization. We wanted a system that would be durable and resistant to the intense operating conditions typical of fish processing, yet easy to keep clean. The seamless resin floor made in our processing plant, integrated with a point drainage system and tightly connected to the plinths at the interface with the layered walls, performs its function well, " said Pawel Wręga, vice president of Seamor International Ltd.
