Northern Monk Brewery – Resin Flooring
First we saw-cut the existing floor screed using a three-phase electric floor saw
which is self-propelled with hydrostatic transmission. We broke out the floor screed
to custom dimensions, ready for the Stainless Steel drainage channels and CIP
Gully’s using a remote controlled Brokk machine.

Once the floor had been excavated and removed to skips, our team installed the
custom made Stainless Steel drainage channels and CIP Gully’s. These were backfilled using resin bulk due to the quickness of cure time, this enabled us to apply the
9mm Polyurethane Screed within 24 hours and handover to the client.
Our team operated with
precision at each stage to
ensure all channels were

Onto the next section, where a canning machine would be installed meaning the floor
had to withstand constant fluids and chemicals. To combat this we first installed a
peremiter of concrete kerbs 60mm x 20mm around the area. A CIP Gully was installed
as shown below, with falls in the floor from 60mm down to 10mm formed with resin
bulk, this would encourage the flow of any fluids toward the CIP Gully. Once the area
was primed we applied a three-pack water dispersed, heavy-duty polyurethane
screed at a thickness of 9mm which is chemical resistant and industry specified.
CIP Gully’s were made
and fitted to suit the flow
rate, like the channels
these can take the weight

The canning area was
prepared by the use of an
vacuum assisted diamond
grinding machine &
mechanical hand tools.
The area was primed
using a two-pack epoxy
tack coat primer and then
a three-pack, water
dispersed, heavy duty
polyurethane floor screed.
Our team finished this project on time, encountering no problems along the way. This has
led to a great working relationship being formed, which is lead to similar projects in the
future. Special thanks to Component Developments for a speedy delivery and high quality

“We chose to work with OFS to expand our brewhouse drainage and to build a raised bunded flooring area for a new incoming canning machine, following a number of productive meetings to discuss the project they impressed us with their creative approach to problem solving, offering sensible solutions which no other firm had, aswell as their efforts to be flexible to our timeline and requirements. They offered everything at a high quality specification which others could not meet. The work was completed on schedule and follow-up support provided to ensure the final floor was in optimum condition.”
