Ireland’s largest fish canner, Irish Fish Canners, engaged Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) to ensure a rapid and successful installation of a new floor system at their production facility in Dongloe.
Based in Dongloe, Co Donegal, Irish Fish Canners is the largest fish canning facility in Ireland and is located along the “Wild Atlantic Way” – Ireland’s premier deep-sea fishing area. Ireland’s leading fish canning provider required a flooring contractor to help upgrade their Dongloe facility by installing a new chemical resistant flooring with anti-slip properties.
Irish Fish Canners set a further key requirement – for the project to be completed with minimum production down time. With year’s of experience in supplying and fitting flooring systems for the food and fishing manufacturing industry, Irish Fish Canners engaged AFS to install a high quality slip-resistant floor system around their unique production periods. AFS began the project by vacuum diamond grinding the existing concrete floor and applied a primer scratch oil resistant primer as an initial coating.
Following preparation, AFS supplied and fitted a MPM 9mm screed to the floor and coving areas. Broadcast quartz were added to the floor to help ensure it carried a R11 anti-slip rating, along with its chemical resistant properties.
The installed flooring system not only meet the requirements set by the client, but also those required in today’s demanding fishing industry.
