Why An Expert Commercial Kitchen Flooring Contractor Matters
Updated: Jul 2
There are countless considerations surrounding the investment of installing a commercial kitchen floor. The biggest factors we have seen are cost, time, and quality of workmanship.
Restaurants, commercial kitchens, and catering halls all have repeat customers and contract clients that are some of the costliest relationships to gain. We work tirelessly to create loyalty among our regulars and having an unannounced kitchen shut down can foil the closest of relationships.
An Expert Epoxy Flooring Contractor Can Provide A Project Within Your Budget
The last thing that any business wants is the burden of having an installation failure and having to schedule a return visit with that contractor.
At High Performance Systems, we have been determined since day one to provide our customers with the best value, through a methodical approach of checking every box and walking our client through the entire process.
What We Provide To Our Customers
Radial cove base, which eliminates corners at wall to floor joints to ensure water doesn’t collect in the corners
Pitch to drains when possible to create a flow of water to drains and eliminate low spots
High-temperature tolerant products, which allow heat exchange on cook lines
Flooring which is chemical resistant to oils and lactic acids, which ensures the system topcoat doesn’t breakdown from chemical attacks
Slip resistant and cleanable flooring, which ensures employee safety and quick wash downs
Beyond the above mentioned products, we have also worked with the leading manufactures of seamless flooring products to provide our clients with the best finish products.
Polyaspartics and Urethane Cement
Polyaspartics and urethane cement can both withstand elevated temperatures and even thermal cycling, which is the dramatic temperature changes of hot and cold.
Additionally, Polyaspartics are ready for use in as little as one hour from finishing the last brush stroke of an application. This means little to no waiting for your floor to be ready for full service or use.
Epoxy Should Not Be Used In A Commercial Kitchen
On a final note, we have found an alarming amount of epoxy being used in the commercial kitchen market. It is important to note that epoxies have there place in the seamless flooring industry, but not in a kitchen atmosphere.
This is because epoxy cannot withstand the hot oil and lactic acids introduced on a daily basis within any kitchen. Over the course of 12-18 months we have seen countless epoxy topcoats degrade and show signs of chemical attack.
In these instances, a full floor system typically isn’t necessary to get things back to normal, but it will require the installation of a higher caliber topcoat.
We recommend taking your time in making the decision to have a seamless commercial kitchen flooring contractor install your seamless floor. Review the products proposed and the exact timeline of installation prior to making any decisions.
