Regulations covering fly screens are stringent and MITIE’s pest control team can advise on the best type to install and fit.
The Food Safety (General Food Hygiene) Regulations 1995 require food businesses to practice high standards of food safety. The regulations specifically relating to pest control states that:
Chapter 1: “Generally food process must be constructed so that there is no cross contamination by pest”.
Chapter 2: “In rooms where food is prepared, treated or processed, windows, which can be opened to the outside environment, must where necessary be fitted with insect proof screens, which can easily be removed for cleaning”.
Our technicians can supply and fit a range of fly proofing. A fly screen can include the following:
- PVC strip curtains;
- Mesh curtains;
- Sliding fly screen doors/windows;
- Top hinge fly screens;
- Fly screen doors.
By fitting and maintaining screens it ensures that the necessary actions have been taken to minimise insect ingress and provide due diligence in adhering to the hygiene laws for protection of food, food packaging products and food serveries.
