Seamless Vet Flooring Systems
One key benefit of epoxy flooring and other fluid-applied resinous flooring systems is that the facility floor is virtually free from seams or cracks in the final surface. This helps to limit crevices where dirt, bacteria, and other microbes can gather and grow unchecked. Grout lines in tile floors and seams where panels meet in other types of flooring can provide an environment where potentially dangerous microorganisms can flourish. This can become an area of great concern both in sanitary pet food processing and in a veterinary clinic, where many sick animals pass through on a daily basis, bringing in bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants.
A seamless vet floor like those offered by Tennant Coatings is easy to thoroughly clean, and far safer for the pets being treated at the facility. Coated flooring makes it even easier to hose or scrub the floor, while properly sloping the floor towards the floor drain can expedite cleaning and ensure that disinfectants and animal waste are thoroughly removed.
Animal Flooring that is Built to Last
Depending on the species of the occupants, animal facilities may experience traffic from claws, talons, hooves, paws, and horse shoes. The flooring in use should be a system that is scratch resistant, able to bear heavy loads if larger animals such as horses are housed or treated in the facility. In addition to ensuring the floor will withstand the challenges presented by nonhuman guests, it is also important to consider how the flooring will affect the experience of these visitors. Some degree of slip resistance is needed, to give animals and humans alike a safer walking surface, but care should be taken to ensure that surfaces are still smooth enough to be comfortable for sensitive paw pads.
