Wholesale seafood and fish processor Three Hooks Seafood required a floor finish that was robust, hygienic and safe for its facility in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville.

Flowcrete Australia supplied 300 m2 of Flowfresh SR (9 mm), which was applied across the facility’s processing and packaging areas as well as in the cold room.

The highly durable polyurethane system is robust enough to withstand the demands of intensive food and beverage environments, including foot and trolley traffic, low temperatures, impacts, thermal fluctuations, cleaning, water exposure and point loading.

Flowfresh Sealer completed the project, giving the floor a glossy aesthetic. Different colours were chosen to differentiate parts of the facility, with a bespoke black applied in the loading and cold room areas and a light blue used in the processing zone.

The Flowfresh range is HACCP International certified. Its seamless and impervious properties make the flooring easy to clean and coving was added to avoid contaminants getting stuck between the floor and wall. The flooring incorporates the antimicrobial agent Polygiene, which eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria in contact with the floor.

As Three Hooks Seafood knew that water and ice would inevitably end up on the floor, the antislip nature of Flowfresh SR was important to create a safe working space for its employees.
