Why Epoxy Flooring Is The Best Option For Commercial Kitchens

by | Nov 13, 2023 | Epoxy

Every element of a commercial kitchen needs to be carefully considered, and your flooring is no exception. A good commercial kitchen flooring system should be:

  • Seamless
  • Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) approved
  • Easy to clean
  • Slip-resistant
  • Resistant to cold, heat, chemicals, and impact
  • Moisture resistant
  • Antimicrobial

Our CFIA-approved seamless epoxy flooring is the perfect fit. We can customize our epoxy system to meet the specific needs of your commercial kitchen. 

Key Advantages of Epoxy Flooring

There are several advantages to using epoxy for commercial kitchen floors:

Epoxy floors are safer

Our epoxy floors are slip-resistant, making your kitchen floor a safer place for your team members to work. They can also be reflective, which brightens your kitchen, making it easier for your team to see what’s happening around them at all times.

Epoxy floors are durable

Epoxy floor coatings are extremely durable, making them an excellent choice for commercial kitchens with heavy foot traffic and frequent spills. This the right product selection, your floor could be:

  • Hold up well to impacts
  • Resist thermal shock
  • Resist chemicals, solvents, and acids

Our floors will stand up to acids, alkalis, fats, grease, blood, abrasive materials like salt and sugar, chemicals like detergents and degreasers, and more.

Epoxy floors are food safe

Our epoxy floors are seamless, leaving no place for bacteria to hide. We use CFIA approved floor coatings to ensure your commercial kitchen dramatically reduces the risk of foodborne illness. Epoxy floors are also incredibly easy to maintain—blood and other contaminants can be wiped off the floor in no time. 

Epoxy floors are cost effective

Epoxy flooring is among the most cost-effective flooring options, both because of its relatively low cost of installation and its other features. The extra illumination offered by epoxy flooring means you’ll be able to reduce your lighting costs, and the ease of cleaning means you’ll be able to reduce your maintenance costs. Finally, epoxy floors are long-lasting—even in a commercial kitchen with heavy traffic—so you won’t have to repair or replace your floor as often. 

Canadian Food Inspection Agency Standards

To ensure that your flooring meets Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) standards, you must use CFIA-approved epoxy materials. You must also use a seamless material, with a particular focus on having a seamless integral cove base. This creates an environment where there are no places for food particles, insects, or bacteria to hide.
