Lion Nathan Brewery, East Tamaki, New Zealand
Commonly referred to as 'Project Century' - in reference to the facility's projected life-span of 100 years - the new manufacturing plant and warehousing facility has been developed iwth a focust on quality, long-term performance and reduced environmental impact.
This focust on quality, longevity and environmental performance has been applied to all aspects of the new facility - including the floors. The challenge was to find a floor that could meet these performance expectations.
When it cam to selecting an appropriate flooring solution for the facility's beer processing, packaging and warehousing areas, project engineers Beca chose Ucrete DP from BASF Construction Chemicals.
Specifically developed for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, UCRETE® DP combines outstanding strength and non-slip performance characteristics with a finish which non-tainting, non-dusting, microbiologically inert and extremely easy to clean. It also offers exceptional resistance to aggressive chemicals, heavy impact and temperatures from -40ºC to 120ºC.
Ucrete DP meets the requirements of both the U.S. and European standards for slip resistant pedestrian surfaces, as well as those of AS/NZS 4586: 1999 Slip Resistance Classification of New Pedestrian Surface Materials in relation to "high slip risk" areas.
