Hygienic Wall Protection Solutions in a Food Safe Environment

15 January 2016

GLOBAL - 25 years ago sandwich panel construction became the most popular way to construct food safe rooms.

Fast installation and good isolation values were some important assets to this success. Nevertheless sandwich panels are vulnerable and quickly damaged and therefore should be well protected by impact resistant, easy to clean, smooth, chemical resistant and water proof PolySto curbs.

In the beginning curbs were constructed with on-site-made concrete and later covered by the floor finishing. But this system is labour intensive, not very hygienic and expensive, slowing down the construction process.

Concrete covered by resins is never a monolithic system, and after a while the bonding between concrete and floor material will break because of infiltration of humidity and acids through hair cracks caused by impacts.

PolySto prefabricated curbs are made of a very strong mixture of polyester resins and quartz granulates.

This creates a monolithic, very strong, water resistant, easy to clean, chemical resistant and repairable curb. Thanks to the unique PolySto pre-fab system with accessories, installation is very fast.

Different types, sizes and thicknesses are available for any type of protection level. PolySto curbs are bonded together with the sandwich panel with a flexible; water resistant PolySto Hard Fix glue and/or chemical anchorage.

The joints can be seamless finished with a 2-component Hygiseal cleanseam or food safe flexible sealant. To avoid any leakage behind the PolySto curb, a second water barrier is created by the PolySto Hard Fix glue.
