Commercial kitchens are a breeding ground for bacteria and germs that can lead to food-borne illnesses such as food poisoning, so following basic food hygiene results is essential when serving the public. Fly screens are a vital part of food hygiene for commercial businesses as they help to prevent insects from contaminating food by transmitting bacteria and microorganisms.
Understanding the risks
Flies and other insects can cause various risks and hazards in a kitchen environment, contaminating everything they touch. It's not the fly that generates the bacteria but where it has been hanging out. Flies don't just fly around fresh food; they also like rotting animal and plant waste, which carries a range of parasites and pathogens. Flies can then transmit these on their body and feet. They also like to vomit and poo on our food as well.
How fly screens work
Fly screens offer superior protection to fly curtains and chains, as the mesh is held firmly inside the screen, which prevents insects from entering around the edges. We offer a wide range of fly screens at Strip Curtains Direct, including:
Maintaining food safety standards
Some of the critical commercial food safety standards you need to adhere to include the following:
Regarding fly screens, the Food Safety Agency Guidelines (HSP 9.48 Food Safety and Kitchen Hygiene) states, "Windows and doors that can be opened to the outside must be fitted with insect-proof screens, where necessary."
The importance of food safety in commercial kitchens cannot be overstated, and flies are one of the many pests that can infiltrate the area and put all your hard work to waste. Our range of fly screens suits most windows and will keep flying insects out while allowing fresh air to circulate.
