Want to Learn About Winery Flooring Solutions? Head to the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium 2017

The wine industry will meet next month at the 2017 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium (UW&GS), which is at the Sacramento Convention Center from January 24 – 26.

Flowcrete Americas’ expert team will be at booth 1237 to discuss the latest flooring trends and technologies for winery operators, educating them on how to ensure that the floor maintains a hygienic, effective and regulatory compliant finish in the face of the many challenges inherent to the sector.

Specialist polymer surfaces are a popular flooring choice among wineries thanks to their resistant and customizable nature that allows for finishes tailored to the different demands found across a winery complex. For example, fermentation areas will require a thick, hardwearing cementitious urethane coating that won’t deteriorate when exposed to chemicals, heat and heavy equipment. The barrel room will likewise require a strong surface to cope with the movement of bulky barrels and forklift trucks as well as point loading from well-stocked storage shelves.

The Flowfresh line of antimicrobial, cementitious urethane systems meet all of the above criteria thanks to its chemical, thermal and slip resistance properties. The Flowfresh range has been engineered to meet the harsh production conditions of the U.S. food and beverage industry, and it has even been HACCP International certified thanks to its food safety properties.

The seamless and impervious nature of polymer floors is a distinct hygiene advantage. It means that the on-site cleaning regime can quickly and easily wash unwanted contaminants out of the area.

In contrast to the production areas, tasting lounges require flooring that creates an engaging and pleasant environment in which to sample the produce and relax. This was the case at the Painted Rock Estate Winery in Okanagan Valley, which created a stunning all-white floor for its new tasting room using 2,000 sq. ft. of the fast-cure, methyl methacrylate quartz flooring system, Flowfast Quartz and 1,500 sq. ft. of a complementary, white Peran STB epoxy quartz.
