In order to maintain a clean and hygienic environment, it is essential that drainage elements are designed and manufactured to ensure bacteria traps are minimised.
The Australian Food Standards Code, Section 3.2.3, Food Premises and Equipment, calls for the design of fittings to facilitate cleaning operations. This is to minimise the likelihood of contamination. Additionally, for these applications, ponding of water on floors is not acceptable.
For over 20 years, ACO has been the leading manufacturer of drainage products for the building and construction industry in Australasia. With an extensive amount of experienced manufacturing and supplying stainless steel drainage systems, ACO is now welcoming a brand new range of stainless steel gullies to their commercial plumbing product line.
ACO’s new stainless steel gullies are designed to comply with Australian, New Zealand and International standards for optimum hygiene performance. The entire range is WaterMark approved. This is granted to products that comply to AS 5200.000 or AS 3495 and certified in accordance with ISO/IEC Guide 67.2004, System 18
In addition to this, the range is designed according to guidelines described in standards, EN 1672, EN ISO 14159 and those from the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG).
EN 1672 and EN ISO 14159 are standards that set out hygiene requirements for use in food processing and commercial kitchens. EHEDG is a consortium of food industries, public health authorities, research institutes and equipment manufacturers. Their purpose is to promote hygiene through improved engineering and design in all aspects of food manufacture. EHEDG principles are recognised by food industry designers worldwide, including Australia.
