DEFLECTA® manufactures specialised products that seal and protect concrete floors, including their Signature product DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL®, which kills pathogens on the surface and within the matrix of the concrete.
After discussions between DEFLECTA®, ALDI and their designers in 2005, a pro-type area was created to assist ALDI in protecting their high traffic floor areas. Upon assessments and trials, ALDI approved the system and in 2006 DEFLECTA® commenced their first job in the back of house, loading dock and switch room areas at ‘The Pines – Victoria’. From there, DEFLECTA® then expanded throughout the ALDI stores in NSW, QLD, SA and WA. Over time this lead to the same application being carried out in ALDI’s freezer and chiller rooms.
Products for the solution
DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® acts as a preventative measure to kill bacteria to concrete surface and matrix areas. The application process is finished with DEFLECTA SURFACE BINDER®, to seal the concrete floors.
For bacteria control, a curing agent and moisture suppressant – DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® is applied at the time of concrete pour, followed by an application of DEFLECTA SURFACE BINDER® to prevent surface dusting as well as increasing strength and abrasive surface resistance and elimination of efflorescence.
DEFLECTA ANTIMICROBIAL® and DEFLECTA SURFACE BINDER® are approved by HACCP Australia/International, that endorses these floor surfacing products and applications as being suitable in food processing and food handling/storage environments in facilities that operate in accordance with the HACCP-based food safety programme, specialising in food safety methodology and its applications.
For a hydrophobic and densifying surface sealer DEFLECTA TOPEL® has been applied to ALDI car parks to densify and dust proof the concrete, increasing wear and slip resistance and is less permeable to liquids. More recently, ALDI applications of DEFLECTA STABILIZER® have been carried out to ALDI front of house/retail floor areas – for moisture control to prevent vinyl floor coverings lifting, due to excessive moisture within the concrete matrix.
With a working relationship of over 12 years, investing on research and development and sampling trials, DEFLECTA® advises ALDI on flooring works for both new and upcoming stores as well as existing and regular on and off-site meetings are held with ALDI, their architects/specifiers, designers and base builders. DEFLECTA® will continue to propose and develop innovative, specific products and/or applications to ALDI and their partners for flooring solutions to their facilities for finishes they require.
DEFLECTA® facilitates with architects, designers, specification writers, builders and end uses to deliver specific concrete protection solutions to provide sealed and sanitises concrete slabs to many different industry sectors.
