One of the most important pieces of equipment in any commercial kitchen or food service environment, the cold room must be able to withstand tough daily usage, temperature fluctuations and high traffic – and that goes for the walk-in freezer flooring as well.
From ice crystals and condensation to accidental spillages and tracked-in water, cold rooms pose plenty of potential hazards. By covering the floor in a heavy-duty, slip-resistant matting like Vynagrip, you help to reduce the risk of slip, trip and fall accidents, plus prevent precious goods from getting damp or contaminated.
Vynagrip’s heavy-duty diamond tread pattern provides a slip-resistant surface for employees and visitors who have to go in and out of the cold room to get supplies. This superior traction not only helps to reduce the risk of slipping, it also helps to prevent equipment and vehicles (like carts, trolleys and forklift trucks) from skidding. The two-layer construction also makes it an ideal anti-fatigue mat.
Walk-in fridges and walk-in freezers can often get compromised by ice build-up associated with moisture and lack of air movement. When this happens, the floor can quickly become hazardous underfoot, and any goods stored on the floor potentially contaminated. Vynagrip’s open-grid design means that air can circulate freely beneath and around cartons, helping to protect boxes and other items stored at floor level.
Cold rooms are also often prone to mould growth because of the high humidity. Vynagrip’s non-porous construction resists bacteria growth and mildew, providing the highest level of hygiene.
Made from non-porous PVC with a two-layer grid construction, Vynagrip is impermeable to fluids and can withstand temperatures as low as -23º C (-9.4º F) without cracking or curling. The open grid also ensures excellent drainage, making it the ideal choice for any environment where spillages are likely or greases and fats are present, such as around beverage dispensers, soft drinks dispensers and drinks fridges, and inside beer fridges, walk-in fridges, walk-in freezers and cold storage warehouses.
Easy to install and a breeze to maintain, Vynagrip is designed to be loose laid over existing commercial kitchen flooring or cold room flooring and is simple to clean with a high pressure hose. It can also be custom made to match existing store designs.
