All glasshouses are temperature-controlled environments. Different produce thrives at different temperatures, and it is often difficult to regulate and maintain a set temperature in a building specific to a certain vegetable, as well as enabling functionality and retaining practicality of the building itself.
Perfection Glasshouse required multiple openings throughout their facility to have an application that could open repetitively without compromising the temperature in the building. Fast and easy access was paramount; forklifts, pedestrians and picking equipment needed constant access to all parts of the glasshouses.
As the name suggests, our Movidor High Speed Doors were the obvious application. With the capacity to open and close at speeds as fast as 2.5m/s, these doors permitted traffic in and out of glasshouse sections whilst maintaining an even temperature. With floor-loop activation, the doors are able to detect traffic from a distance, open, and close quickly behind the vehicle, without interfering or slowing traffic through the opening.
With over 14 of these High Speed Doors installed throughout their site, the Perfection Glasshouse team continues to reap the benefits of fast and seamless access whilst maintaining a controlled temperature.
