Epoxy Commercial Kitchen Flooring Benefits

In any commercial kitchen, making sure that flooring is as hygienic and low-maintenance as possible is essential. The last thing you need after a long shift is the possibility of a long clean-up process.

Epoxy flooring allows you to benefit from durable, long-lasting flooring that is easy to clean, resistant to wear and tear stains and smells.  At the same time, it is sanitary and hygienic, ensuring that you adhere to state and local health regulations.

LOW-MAINTENANCE KITCHEN FLOORING

Epoxy flooring is easy to clean, making it the perfect choice for high-volume commercial kitchens. Because we install it tight to drain and up to the walls, there is no space for unsanitary food particles to hide and create build-up.

Furthermore, this flooring system is antimicrobial. This allows it to be resistant to stains, fungus, mold, odors, bacteria, yeast, viruses, and other microbes. This means that cleaning up in your commercial kitchen is not only comfortable but is also far more sanitary than many other flooring options available to you.

The antimicrobial nature of epoxy flooring means that you also benefit from reduced bacterial degradation, which means reduced odor. In addition, without any space for the build-up of dirt and germs, you ensure that easy maintenance and smells are also reduced.

DURABLE COMMERCIAL KITCHEN FLOORING

By investing in epoxy flooring, you will be investing in flooring that is safe and durable. In addition, it is slip-resistant and non-abrasive. This is a necessary property in commercial kitchens due to grease and oil spills. Epoxy flooring reduces slips even in the most slippery and greasy areas.

Epoxy floor coating is long-lasting and durable and effectively holds up against even the most aggressive wear and tear from foot traffic. With your staff continually moving around the commercial kitchen, having flooring that doesn’t need constant repair and general maintenance is essential. Your flooring will not tear, peel, or crack apart the way many other flooring systems will. Furthermore, it will also stand up effectively against chemicals, oil, many acids, alkali, sugar, salt, and harsh detergents and de-greasers, making it both a safe and durable choice for a commercial kitchen or restaurant.

Commercial kitchen flooring often has significant temperature variations where one part of the space is cool or cold, and another can be warm or very hot. This means that your flooring should be able to safely and durably stand up to temperature variations, which epoxy flooring ensures.

COMMERCIAL KITCHEN SAFETY GUIDELINES

In a commercial food or other food industry space, ensuring that the facility is up to USDA, FDA, federal, state, and local sanitation and health regulations and guidelines. This often means the use of industrial-grade disinfectants and cleaning products.

Ensuring that your flooring stands up to these products is essential to ensure your space can pass inspections with flying colors. However, the durability of epoxy flooring means that you never need to worry about that.

COMMERCIAL KITCHENS FAQs

How much is epoxy flooring for commercial kitchens?

Epoxy flooring varies in cost depending on the size, color, and complexity of the project. Prices typically range from $3 per square foot to $10 per square foot for larger jobs.

Installing epoxy floors requires some expertise and costs more than most other options.

To calculate how much it will cost your company to install an entire commercial kitchen using this type of flooring, you would need to know its dimensions (in feet) and how many pounds of sealant is required per 100 square feet of surface area, labor, equipment rental, material costs (sealants, latex paints), materials removal, and any esthetic finishes (sanding or acid etching).

Is epoxy flooring good for commercial kitchens?

Increasingly, commercial kitchens are being made with impervious materials such as epoxy. The main purpose of this is to make it easier to contain different kinds of spills and other contaminants.

Building codes around water containment dictate that food processing plants should be using epoxy flooring rather than porous materials like wood or carpet. Spaces intended for cooking need to stand up well against hot oil or grease, which can cause both odors and stains.

Epoxy flooring is also more durable and lasts longer than natural stone floors, requiring less maintenance over time while remaining resistant to chipping scuffs or staining.

Epoxy flooring is a good choice for heavy traffic areas. It’s more resistant to damage than ceramic or porcelain tile, and can be better for preventing slips, falls, and other accidents.

Epoxy flooring is especially good for commercial kitchens since it’s easy to clean and maintain making it employee-friendly.

What are the disadvantages of epoxy floor coating for commercial kitchen floors?

Epoxy floor coatings for commercial kitchen floors can create contact noise during walking. The floor can also feel cold without underfloor heating, and the floor is sensitive to UV radiation without a finish. In addition, epoxy floors can be slippery, so it is important to have a slip-resistant flooring system in place.

Is epoxy floor coatings better than tiles for commercial kitchens?

Epoxy floor coatings are an excellent choice for that bustling commercial kitchen, as they’re slip-resistant and very durable.

In contrast to tiles, epoxies don’t have grout lines, reducing mess and providing a more seamless surface.

Epoxy isn’t damaged the way porcelain is by heavy foot traffic or dishwasher detergents. Scuffs can easily be buffed out without damaging the color of the finish.

Stress cracks caused by thermal shock are an issue for kitchen tiles, but epoxy floor coatings are heat resistant to damage caused by dramatic changes in temperature.

Epoxy coating scratches less than porcelain, making them a great choice for commercial kitchens. They’re also chemical-resistant, so it’s suitable for commercial kitchen floors like a processing plant.

Non-porous surfaces such as epoxy do not allow bacteria to form as tiles do. Therefore, the health risks of grout and bacteria on porous flooring surfaces make tiles less than the best choice for busy commercial establishments like cafes and restaurants.

Epoxy floor coatings are also easier on the feet than tiles and provide better traction than unsealed tile floors.
