Hygiene & Food industry

In food industry demands on hygienic conditions are high. Special attention must be paid to material properties, joints between structures, detail solutions as well as cleaning and maintenance. The tightness of panel structures and sealants creates a basis for hygienic walls and ceilings. PAROC panel surfaces are smooth and panel joints are water and airtight. The smooth surfaces as well as water and air tight hygienic joints of PAROC panels without din traps make the wall and ceiling structures easy to keep clean. For washable walls it is recommended to use sealants both in the tongue and groove joint of panels and on the surface of the joints.

PAROC PANELS IN HYGIENE SOLUTIONS

The panel surface coatings can be chosen according to requirements as follows

  • Polyester is used in dry conditions, it does not release any particles
  • FoodSafe is used when surfaces need to be washed often but have a limited wet time; under normal conditions it neither releases any poisonous substances nor does it function as a substratum for micro-organisms
  • Stainless steel is used as facings in most demanding circumstances.

VTT test - Safe use in the food industry

PAROC_Logos_lrg_VTT
Tests made by the independent research institute VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland) regarding the microbiological growth in PAROC panel core, show that PAROC panels are safe to be used in food industry applications and there is no risk for contamination of PAROC panel structures:
  • The bacteria cells such as Salmonella or Listeria do not grow or spread in panel core and disappear very soon
  • Spores such as mould (Aspergillus) do not grow or spread and disappear slower than bacteria cells
  • Panel core in hard conditions does not support the survival of microbes
