A new mat to help clean the wheels of forklift trucks was installed at Granta Processors’ Whittlesford premises. 

To maintain hygienic conditions following the resurfacing of a concrete floor with an epoxy resin concrete screed at its Whittlesford premises, Granta Processors — which handles imported seeds and pulses — installed a new mat to help clean the wheels of its forklift trucks.

The CleanTrax system from Unisan was installed on the main warehouse entrance where forklifts were constantly entering from the outside. It has proved successful in helping to keep the warehouse floor clean. In fact, in the first seven days of operation 4.46kg of dirt were removed and contained within collection trays equivalent to 232kg a year.

The company is now considering installing a similar system for pedestrian traffic and at the entrance to its maintenance workshop.

“We have noticed that the floor stays a lot cleaner and is far easier to clean,”​ says Granta Processors’ director Geoffrey Marsh. “This will undoubtedly provide an excellent return on investment over the coming year.”
