Your restaurant provides meals for hundreds, if not thousands, of people every week. There is always something happening in the front of the house and in the kitchen. Over time, all that action starts to show on the building, both inside and out. No place is this more evident than on the corners of walls in the kitchen and serving areas. This is where all the work gets done, so, it makes sense that it shows the most wear. But, the truth is, you don't have to live with it. In fact, here are three reasons to install stainless steel corner guards in your restaurant kitchen.
Take a look around your kitchen and pay close attention to the
corners at the entrances and around work areas. It's clear that the
cooks bump into them with pots and pants, carts and equipment quite
often. You can also see that the servers and those that bus the tables
clip them on the way past with trays and bus tubs. Chances are they are
nicked, scratched and damaged which allows moisture to get beneath the
paint, causing serious problems. With stainless steel corner guards
installed, no matter how many times they are bumped or banged, the
corners stay in good condition.
Food Safe Surface
Corner guards made with 304-grade stainless steel cannot be damaged
by food acids, dyes or fats. In fact, this grade of stainless steel is
used in many kitchen appliances, pots and pans, utensils and equipment.
In other words, it is completely safe to use in and around food
preparation areas. What's more, the stainless steel does not emit any
dangerous chemicals or odors, making it a very safe choice. In addition,
this grade of stainless steel is immune to the effects of sterilization
solutions and other cleaners which means it will last longer than other
types of materials.
Ease Of Cleaning
Cleanliness isn't just a good idea in a restaurant, it's an absolute
requirement. Bacteria and nasty germs can accumulate on kitchen surfaces
and cause a myriad of diseases and illnesses. Stainless steel corner
guards are impervious to most everything, but that doesn't mean they do
not need a good cleaning. In fact, they should be cleaned at a minimum
of once per day as well as any time they are soiled. The benefit of
using stainless steel is that a quick wipe down with an antibacterial or stainless-specific
cleaner and a soft cloth is all it takes to get them clean.
