Commercial kitchen rubber flooring

Today’s industrial kitchens are marked by their sleek, utilitarian appearance. Above all they must maintain highly professional standards and when it comes to industrial kitchen flooring, easy to clean surfaces, high performance and safety are all essential requirements. 

With high temperatures, excessive water and heavy cooking equipment and utensils, commercial kitchen flooring must perform consistently, day after day. So, if you are considering a new commercial kitchen flooring solution here are some criteria to keep in mind:

  • Slip-resistance — A safe floor is essential in a working kitchen environment and a reduction in workplace incidents helps to significantly increase team morale and employee safety.
  • Hygiene factor— Poor hygiene standards can lead to contamination, which must be avoided at all costs in the food industry. Flooring should be easy to clean and not harbor bacteria, dirt and grime.
  • Microbial defense— You need a modern flooring solution that implements advanced chemistry to provide the best protection against microbial growth. Flooring should be able to withstand harsh chemicals and animal fats, while also preventing odors.
  • Anti-fatigue — Flooring should allow kitchen staff to stand comfortably for hours at a time.

So which flooring solution meets all these criteria? Commercial kitchens are often fitted with rubber flooring due to its many features and benefits. Commercial kitchen rubber flooring is supplied with a range of options, is highly durable and is easy to maintain.
