Meat processing facility required DMF doors
The High Speed PVC Roll door is a very popular door for the controlling the atmosphere of food processing areas. DMF were commissioned to provide high speed roll doors, Swingflex doors and Visiflex Strip doors to a new mat processing facility in western Sydney. The high speed roll doors particularly needed to provide temperature control, vermin proof sealing, and have a safe operation due to the high frequency of use.
With fast operation speeds of up to 1.3m/sec, the custom sized DMF high speed roll doors were designed with washdown in mind, and had limited flat surfaces thus reducing dust settlement. The door can operate many times per day, working effectively for combinations of forklift, trolley or pedestrian traffic. The speed of operation allows increased control of atmospheric conditions in the processing areas, and with the auto closing function, this is even further enhanced. All of the high speed roll doors come with a variety of safety mechanisms, which included a flexible bottom rail. This provides a highly safe door feature for pedestrian use, but also prevents damage to the door if impacted by a forklift. This together with a unique RF system of pressure bar, results in a completely safe bottom bar design.
Additionally, the doors are fitted with inline photo electric light beams within the doorway, and some doors had a battery backup UPS system in case of power failure.
DMF manufactured these specialised doors in their Sydney based factory, employing over 20 staff in various roles.
