Restaurants can be high-risk areas for bacteria growth and usually require stainless steel drains and grates to comply with regulations for drainage systems. The systems and technical support provided by ACO can ensure that these regulations are met on each project. Trench drains provide an ideal solution inside and outside restaurant areas where simple and smooth two directional slopes provide minimal trip hazards.
Common places to find ACO products:
- Industrial kitchens
- Coffee shops
- Fast food
- Outdoor restaurants
- Ice cream shops
- Food courts
Maximum Hygiene – Hygiene is a top priority in a commercial kitchen. Make sure that all components of the drainage system have a round bevel. Residues can easily get stuck in corners. Prevent your drainage system from becoming a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. ACO has developed HygieneFirst® products for this area.
Safety – Surfaces in an industrial kitchen should be slip-resistant. This also applies to the drainage boxes, channels or drains. The drainage system should be able to drain off large amounts of water quickly to avoid puddles.
Permanent Tightness – The connection area between the floor pan or floor drain and the floor covering should be permanently tight and level. This not only ensures that the system is more durable and stable, it also reduces the risk of various occupational accidents.
Several ACO product recommendations include:
