What makes a brewery successful? Well, of course, it’s the love of beer. But passion for your product is only one ingredient of success. A well-run operation is critical if your aim is to become one of the leading breweries in the country. Creating and maintaining a much-needed balanced environment is the reason why having well-painted surfaces and equipment in your facility is so important.
Industrial painting services are designed to maintain your equipment and keep your employees safe, and no one performs these services quite like Alpine Painting. With over 45 years of experience in commercial/industrial painting and sandblasting, throughout New Jersey and New York, we've seen and handled just about any industrial maintenance situation. Our staff has decades of expertise meeting safety and industry regulations.
From walls to ceiling, your brew site must be properly painted and maintained. This goes for your equipment as well. Brewery painting is meant to keep all your equipment well protected from various types of damage including rust, chemical deterioration and corrosion, and physical/impact damage. And when it comes to flooring, Alpine knows that servicing must go beyond improving appearances, as brewery floors undergo an ongoing stream of stress and wear. Heavy machinery, foot traffic, liquid spills, temperature fluctuations, and impacts are all a part of daily operations at brewing facilities.
Industrial Flooring Options
Like most other food or beverage production environments, your flooring needs to be tough, reliable, and sanitary. Those inevitable spills and leaks can lead to trapped bacteria which is why antimicrobial flooring is always a great option. Read on to learn more about the flooring options we have available for breweries.
Brewery Flooring Options
Epoxy Floor Systems — Epoxy floors have all the features that a brewery needs: impact-resistant, sanitary, and durable. Alpine’s flooring services will ensure the longevity of your flooring by using the proper preparation and application techniques.
Stained Concrete — Concrete staining is an ideal way to seal, protect, and preserve your floor, while also making them low maintenance. Other benefits of stained concrete include fire resistance, durability and energy efficiency. And it can make your floors look great too!
Concrete Polishing — Here you can create a durable and sanitary flooring option by decreasing moisture retention and decreasing the opportunity for growth of mold, bacteria, and mildew.
Antimicrobial - Antimicrobial floors have a seamless and nonporous surface, and contain additives that prevent the growth of any contaminants. Antimicrobial makes for a very powerful flooring system!
Our industrial flooring services for breweries include: concrete prep, concrete polishing, moisture mitigation, seamless epoxy systems, ESD floors, painting, antimicrobial flooring, and floor demolition.
Antimicrobial Flooring is Ideal for Breweries
Antimicrobial floor systems have a unique coating with additives that prevent the growth of harmful microbes. These additives work deep within the floor and stop the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria right at the source, penetrating in a way that even the most thorough surface cleaning supplies can’t. For breweries, antimicrobial floors add a level of sanitation often required by the FDA and USDA.
Not every antimicrobial coating is the same, however, or of equal equality. The most effective coatings include a pre-treatment step that reaches deep into the concrete substrate. This level of treatment will help you achieve a higher level of protection.
What About Your Tanks?
If you’re painting your brewery, don’t forget about your tanks! While all breweries experience some spillage as materials get transferred, leakage of any sort needs immediate attention. Any tank leaks can become serious workplace hazards, causing people to slip on messy floors, for example.
Tanks containing certain chemicals and liquids are susceptible to corrosion, which you will want to avoid as they can become a major health violation by contaminating the liquid inside them. In addition, this corrosion is often what leads to cracking and leaking problems. Painting or coating your tanks with high-quality products will help prevent such leakage from occurring. The coating will seal off any existing cracks and prevent new ones from forming. The paint provides a thick barrier between the liquid and the tank itself, and will not seep into or contaminate the product. It will also prolong the lifespan of the tank considerably.
