Flowcrete uses the power of silver at McVities

A prestigious new production facility at McVities in Glasgow has started out on a firm footing with the installation of a range of hygienic floor finishes from Flowcrete, including Flowfresh, which utilises the natural power of silver to deliver the level best in advanced protection.

Lines 14 and 19 at the Tollcross-based McVitie plant have been developed to include the latest in food production technology. In-keeping with the high tech nature of the refurbishment, a range of Flowcrete products were specified across a total floor area of almost 3,000 square metres. The project included the application by XL Industrial Resins of Flowfresh RT, which was chosen for the main thoroughfares of Line 14, in an ochre and cream colour scheme – providing McVities with the balance of both a textured finish for slip resistance and a surface capable of easy maintenance and cleanability. The smoother finished Flowcrete Flowfresh MF was also applied in the areas immediately below Line 14, to allow ease of maintenance. Flowfresh offers a state-of-the art system for food and drink production areas, based on the natural power of silver to protect surfaces from germs. For Line 19, Hydraseal and Flowcrete HF were applied by Veitchi Industrial Flooring (Scotland) Ltd across 1,200 square metres. Installed in four weeks under two phases, the textured Flowcrete HF was applied in a ‘live’ working environment and involved the sheeting up of the area to ensure the smooth running of the site.
