At Union Jack, we are committed to providing the best and highest quality product options for all levels of FDA / Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) compliance and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) implementation. Ultra Safe Technology (UST) is Vikan’s latest initiative to create the most secure, safe and hygienic cleaning tools for the food and beverage industry. The UST product range is based on state of the art technology and the only fully food contact compliant solution that offers complete documentation in accordance with the FDA and EU regulations. This line of brooms and brushes help improve food safety and quality, minimize food waste and increase cleaning efficiency. UST provides an unparalleled level of hygienic design.
It's all in the bristle
The key factor is that the bristles (Filament Security Units) are directly molded into the brush block, eliminating any gaps or seams, while offering unprecedented bristle retention strength. This improved bristle retention is critical to compliance, especially in high-risk areas. The products in the UST line each have a unique bristle pattern to optimize function, while spacing between the bristle units makes each tool easier to clean, dry, and inspect. This makes UST an outstanding and more compliant alternative to resin set brush products.
