Union Industries, the UK market leading manufacturer of industrial rapid roll Hi-Speed Doors, has supported the environmental and hygiene standards at Freshcut Foods Ltd in the East Midlands.

The Leeds-based roller door specialist has installed one of its signature Matadoors in Freshcut Foods’ Blanching Corridor to support their environmental commitments by assisting with temperature control and also to help maintain high levels of hygiene at the premises in Beeston, Nottingham.

Freshcut Foods provides bespoke food component solutions in roasted, chargrilled and blanched vegetables and carbohydrates, to the major UK chilled food manufacturers producing a wide range of retail and foodservice products.

The steelwork of the 1440mm wide x 2100mm high door is finished in a high grade stainless steel, which is required due to the regular hygiene wash-down in this area. The Matadoor is operated by radar motion sensors on both sides, which is used to detect pedestrian traffic with pallet trucks.

The fast acting speed of the Matadoor helps with temperature control. The door is open for the minimum amount of time possible before closing automatically, meaning temperature fluctuation is kept to an absolute minimum – and energy is saved!

In common with the other doors in the range, the Matadoor also feature Union’s highly-regarded ‘Crash-Out’ damage protection facility, which ensures that the door remains operable if the heavy duty steel composite bottom beam is hit by a vehicle.

Nick Houghton, General Manager at Freshcut Foods, said: “As a company, we pride ourselves in delivering quality customer service, production excellence and ensuring our customers’ requirements are exceeded.

“Our British Retail Consortium accredited factory in Nottingham provides a daily national delivery service and our experienced and committed management team are totally customer focused.”

“The door was installed out of normal working hours so as to cause the minimum disruption to the customer”, reports Paul Chable, Technical Sales Engineer for Union.

“Our industrial High Speed roller doors have gained outstanding reputation in a range of multi-purpose manufacturing environments. This recent installation shows yet another exceptional example of service by Union Industries, which has helped to meet the hygiene and temperature control requirements of a nationally accredited organisation.”
