A significant development was recently completed in Perth.
The Print Hall project is a multi-storey commercial food, wine and function precinct, incorporating a food court with numerous high quality international cuisines.
The site is the heritage listed 1930s Newspaper House building, formerly the home of the West Australian newspaper.
Within the build there was a series of small, medium and large commercial kitchens designed to cater for all the food related activities within the precinct. Demand on commercial kitchens such as these is immense and accordingly the floors take the brunt of the load. They have to be resistant to long term impact from dropping and cleaning utensils, abrasion from constant traffic, resistant to food acids, cooking oils and thermal shock. Failure of floors in facilities such as these that are used almost continuously is disaster for the operators.
Leeda Developments, the company constructing and project managing the entire internal fit out selected to install Sikafloor 22N PurCem product system because of its proven capability.
It is a polyurethane/cement based floor that has proven over many years to be the ultimate answer for Commercial and Industrial food facilities.
Not only does it cope with the rigors of the environments mentioned above, it is seamless, fast to install and VOC compliant for food grade requirements.
Antiskid Industries has enormous experience in installing this type of system and its exacting and demanding requirements that this project required.
The result is a series of floors within the building that can be relied upon to provide long term performance in a demanding environment.
