Commercial kitchens can be found in hotels, restaurants, educational facilities, hospitals, cafeterias… Everywhere in fact. They are professional, busy workplaces, catering for the clean and efficient production of food. A commercial kitchen layout features many designated sections, including; the receiving area, sorting area, cold storage, dry storage, pre-preparation area, production area, and waste collection. They are designed to be as user-friendly as possible. When it comes to your choice of commercial kitchen flooring, there are options to choose between on the market. Each business will have different requirements, budgets and constraints, but the most commonly purchased commercial kitchen flooring is ceramic tiling. Ceramic tiling has been the top choice for kitchen flooring for some time, and this is mainly down to how easy it is to clean and the fact that it’s available in many different colors and designs.

Vinyl flooring is an alternative choice for commercial kitchen flooring. Vinyl floors are easy to clean, feature higher grip properties than tiling, and are considerably cheaper to purchase and instal. However, whilst it may be cheaper to purchase initially, once the surface has worn the whole floor must then be completely replaced. In a commercial kitchen, wear and tear is inevitable, and even small grains of sand or dirt can contribute to the breakdown of the material. Vinyl floors must also be cleaned with specific cleaning products, so as to avoid tarnishing and discolouration.

Another form of commercial kitchen flooring, is Resin flooring. Resin floors can be made from PU, Epoxy and PMMA. PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate) flooring is most widely used for commercial kitchen flooring as it has superior properties when compared with PU or Epoxy. PMMA is very durable and provides good grip. It is a strong material that can withstand extreme temperatures, and is not easy to wear down. It’s also easy to clean and maintain, featuring a non-permeable layer that prevents dust, dirt and microbial growth, whilst being resistant to many chemicals. Lastly, PMMA flooring can be remoulded whilst still in situ.

After considering the above three options for your commercial kitchen flooring, then it’s time to now look at Eco Grip flooring. Eco Grip is a high quality, durable and cost-effective product made with PET fibres and polyvinyl. This truly unique product features many of the benefits listed above, it has good grip properties, prevents microbial growth, is chemical resistant, is waterproof and puncture-proof, and is easy to clean and maintain.
