Automated traffic flooring for Arla Foods
John Lord recently installed resin floors in a new build project for the major international food manufacturer, Arla Foods. During the installation, various products from our standard range were utilised to meet the criteria of varying in house conditions and processing environments.
The facility is one of the largest of its type in Europe and is comprised of a number of different manufacturing areas. In one area, automated guided vehicles were being used to distribute products. These vehicles followed a designated route which raised questions about the longevity of the floor finishes within a defined area which is subject to constant heavy trafficking.
John Lord provided the ultimate solution to these concerns by specifying our Uragard HTIF. The system itself uses the same resin technology as our standard polyurethane range of products however its performance is enhanced by the use of iron filings encapsulated within the resin-bound aggregate. This increases wear and abrasion characteristics but still maintains the same aesthetic appearance as our Uragard HT range.
Our client was impressed with the installation and proceeded to request the same specification for other suitable environments within the facility.
“Very impressed! I will be using John Lord for the flooring specified in the other environments of the facility.”
