Reader Inquiry # 3547 Flowcrete Uncorks Winery Flooring in New Guide To help wine producers choose a foor that hits the right notes, Flowcrete Americas has produced a guide for wineries that looks at how specialist polymer fooring systems can enhance the site's visual impact while maintain- ing a safe, clean, and contaminant-free environment. Many wineries still opt for uncoated concrete foors; in fact, just 7 percent of small wineries and 8 percent of medium-sized wineries have installed cementitious urethane foors. However, concrete foors can become porous and cracked, quickly becoming sites of hazardous bacteria buildup. Inadequate drainage or hard-to-clean surfaces in a winery can also lead to hygiene concerns and slip risks while simultaneously ruining a site's aesthet- ics into the bargain. Te new guide details how Flowcrete's Flowfresh range of cementitious urethane systems is ideal for the back-of-house areas. Tese spaces will have to cope with constant trafc, impacts from barrels, stock movement, and the handling of heav y equipment, as well as humid, acid-rich conditions.
