Thatchers Cider needed a high quality flooring system to cope with the demands of a busy packaging facilty to withstand organic acid attack and wheeled traffic movements.
Thatchers Cider, a family run business based in North Somerset, has been producing cider since 1904. Continued growth means that they now press over 40,000 tonnes of fruit per year to satisfy demand, so they needed a substantial new packaging facility with a high quality flooring system able to withstand the attack of organic acids, potential impact and abrasion from fork-truck traffic. This needed to be achieved within the hygienic environment required to maintain the excellent reputation and brand strength associated with Thatchers Cider. Thatchers Cider and architects David James and Partners of Bristol selected AltroCrete PU Excel to provide this tough, durable and hygienic finish. AltroCrete PU Excel is FeRFA type 8, 5-9mm textured floor finish for heavy duty areas of potential spillage and a wide temperature range (-40°C to +120°C at 8mm+). This system offers the required high level of resistance to impact or abrasion and to a wide range of chemicals, including organic acids found in foodstuffs. It is available in standard-cure or fast-track options for food and drink production areas and heavy industrial applications. The flooring was installed throughout the filling and storage areas by Polydeck Resins Ltd. of Chippenham, for Devon Contractors who co-ordinated the project.
