Gritton hygienic flooring and the meat industry.

Gritton Hygienic Flooring and the Meat Industry

With 1992 looming large on the horizon, abattoirs, poultry and meat processing plants are becoming increasingly aware of the tougher hygiene regulations that will be imposed from Brussels.

For the last fifteen years Gritton have been installing flooring products of their own manufacture, using their own labour. To meet the needs of even higher standards of hygiene, they have developed a range of modified and proven non taint products for use during refurbishment or at greenfield sites.


Their Copag + flooring has been used extensively in the meat and poultry industries as an infill, prior to overlaying, to create the desired falls. This product can also be used as an overlay in its own right. It can be laid on damp surfaces and used to from coving and plinths on vertical surfaces. A Copag + surface as laid is dustless, slip resistant and steam cleanable. The floor can be put back into service within 48 hours of being laid and it can be further enhanced by the application of one of the company's epoxy coatings.


They also provide a treatment for walls and ceilings. Their Hydrowall coatings transform cement render, concrete block, brick, tiled and old or new walls. The seamless surface can be steam cleaned or pressure washed and prevents the growth of fungi or mould.

The company now offers a total package of floor, wall and ceiling treatments, providing a survey, specification of materials and falls as required. In consultation with BM Stainless, this package can include the installation of fabricated stainless steel drainage requirements.

Having four strategically placed regional contracting centres, Gritton can offer an effective local service. All national selling and contracting is co-ordinated by their Redhill manufacturing and administrative centre.
