What is wall kerbing?

Wall kerbing, commonly used in food and drink factories, is essential to making a food manufacturing environment hygienic and food safe.

Made from 304 or 316 grade stainless steel, the kerbing is designed to sit between the floor and the wall, preventing liquid ingress and dirt build-up. This results in hygienic and easy-to-clean surfaces.

what type of kerbing do i need?

Wall kerbing can be formed in various sizes and styles to suit the specific requirements of each environment.

The exact kerbing required will be determined by the space in which it is being installed and the type of walls and flooring present.

All wall kerbing should be produced to a standard that allows it to withstand the rigorous cleaning processes required in manufacturing facilities.

How is wall kerbing installed?

Wall kerbing can either be clipped on or sealed to the floor and wall surfaces.

A silicone-based, food-safe sealant should be applied when sealing a wall kerb. This prevents the accumulation of bacteria while also being resistant to the high temperatures and moisture levels present in food manufacturing environments.

Installation should always be carried out by trained and qualified professionals.

Wall kerbing works well with resin flooring, creating a smooth transition from wall to floor, and is durable and easy to clean.
