Fast acting doors for food industry

Hall 5 stand E6, we are glad to show you part of our range of high performance doors dedicated to food processes - all of them enhanced with the Intelligent Curtain®.
On each access, the Intelligent Curtain® opens at the last moment without posing a risk if touched, then closes again at the same speed - twice as fast as traditional doors - without endangering users or packages. It therefore reduces accidents and production stoppages, but by shortening the time it is open, it also reduces energy consumption and the risks of airborne contamination.
And if you haven't found time to vist us at CFIA, you'll still have another chance in April to see Nergeco doors in action at our partner's stand at Birmingham during the FOODEX (18-20 April).

Nergeco Scandinavia at Euro Expo fair in Skellefteå

The 16th and 17th of April, our Scandinavian subsidiary attended the Euro Expo fair in Skellefteå up north in Sweden. As we have landed quite a lot of projects in this part of the country during the last two years, we felt it was time for us to show our products to more Skellefteå companies.
It turned out to be a success at the fair and we got a lot of interesting new leads coming from this dynamic area.
We will soon show up again to Skellefteå to install 11 big Trekking Enduro high speed doors at the new recycling-plant Degermyra.

The first NZ Multi-Composite High Speed Doors Re-Visited

Our partner in New-Zealand for fast acting doors, Acedoors, installed his first multi-composite speed doors in 2007 at the new Bidvest Fresh facility in Avondale, Auckland. Since then Acedoors have installed many more Multi-composite doors. Acedoors asked Bidvest what they think of the doors a few years later.

The doors, made for 3.6m high x 2.4m wide clear openings, were supplied with the DR60 sealing kits option to meet the design requirements of the consultant. Acedoors were able to supply independent lab test data showing the leakage rates at various positive and negative pressures. The service logs show that the doors perform approximately 100-115 cycles per day, and have no reliability issues, despite being hit on occasion.

Chris Simpson, Bidvest's Operations Manager writes: "Our new distribution centre was designed to operate at a temperature of +5°C and need a reliable fast acting door that could maintain the temperature and not impede the traffic flow."
"We found that new Nergeco Star 5 Labo 5 high speed doors have more than met our needs, easily maintaining the required temperature and traffic flow.
It also has the added advantage over other doors in that it constructed out of a Mulitcomposite material as opposed to steel, giving it a better seal between the legs and the curtain, can be washed down and is corrosion proof.
I am extremely happy with the Nergeco Star 5 Labo and the excellent after sales service we receive from Acedoor Systems Ltd."

­NERGECO equips the Intermarché Grand Sud platform (Le Moniteur 3/04/2015)

The second phase in the implementation of the Intermarché Grand Sud logistics platform at Montbartier in France has been completed with refinements being made to the initial technical choices.
The basic plan by ITM of Montbartier now forms a huge "H" made up of the first phase which inaugurated the urban development zone, intended for grocery products and general merchandise and to which a fresh and frozen products base has been recently added. The first phase, delivered in 2011 covered 50,000 m2, the second brings this total to 90,000 m2. GSE has directed the design and construction with the aim of processing 50 million fresh, fruit and vegetable and frozen packages per year, and supplying all sales outlets of the "Mousquetaires" in the Midi-Pyrénées region, while complying with the High Environmental Quality standards. A technical challenge to reconcile the overall cost of investment and operation with environmental stakes while at the same time carrying out intense logistical flows between controlled temperatures of -25°C and 7°C and the outside.
The design principle chosen was that of the double wall: in the centre two freezer units of 2,900 m2 each along with the fresh and chilled product areas are insulated from the external skin by air locks, gas loading areas and movement areas opening onto the packaging section of 12,000 m2 incorporating a mechanised sorter. Initially, the insulation between these various units operating at separate temperatures and relative humidities was to be handled by a combination of high-speed flexible doors with composite frames, air curtains and automatic isothermal sliding doors. After a start-up entrusted to the
STEF Group, the specific nature of the intensive logistics between different cold areas and positive ambient temperatures drove those involved to look to a single supplier of high-speed flexible doors offering a range able to cover the multiple configurations on the site. It was thus that Nergeco, selected from the start for the mechanical performance and corrosion resistance of its composite-framed flexible doors, was chosen both for this application and also for the replacement of other solutions in order to sustain the ambitious targets of the Intermarché platform.

A door for each configuration
"Four of our ranges are installed in this ITM base" explain David Bernal, Nergeco's UK sales area manager. "Our large Star folding Productivity Doors protect the building from the outside. Doors from the multi-composite framed Agro range in the positive ambient temperature environment for fruit and vegetable have been chosen for their corrosion resistance. At the heart of the cold chain a number of Frigo doors itted with flexible curtains with one, two or three walls depending on the refrigerated areas they need to separate have been installed. Lastly, two of the new Enduro 5 have been installed to divide the building between dry and fresh products". This amounts in total to 27 Nergeco flexible doors which provide tailor-made insulation and enable traffic to move safely and quickly.

The art of keeping a material flexible at low negative temperatures
The technology used on these flexible refrigeration doors is especially stressed between negative and positive temperatures. In this situation, the risk of condensation followed by icing up each time they are opened or closed prohibits the use of roller doors which would just stick to themselves. The Nergeco doors used between positive and negative ambient temperatures are therefore of the double- or triple- flexible PVC-walled folding type sealing in a rot-proof insulator which accommodates one to two air blankets. The assembly process and the way the flexible characteristics of the materials are maintained in freezing temperatures is a trade secret of the French brand which has become over 35 years the worldwide technological leader for high-speed flexible doors under strategic conditions.
"The cold chain perfectly illustrates our know-how," Denis Roche, Nergeco's export manager told us. "We are always keen on resolving our customers' most difficult problems whether in refrigeration, large industry, clean rooms, agri-foodstuffs, areas accessible to the public, etc. We could have contented ourselves with just producing standard products and trying to sell them to everyone, but without our desire to provide the insulation/access solution best suited to every business, every process, every building, even our most demanding customers could not have driven us to be present, as we are now, in ninety-four countries…".

Between -25°C and 1°C, the Star 5 Frigo 3 with triple skin and multi-composite frame reduces air exchanges with the air lock at each access by combining high-speed opening and closing operations with a double detection system which only opens to the height required by the handling equipment.
