Efaflex minimises energy consumption from field to fork

Efaflex has designed an array of high-speed interior and exterior industrial doors that provide a solution for every element along the supply chain journey to tackle the challenges facing today’s food and beverage industry.

With the operational environment being more complex and diverse than ever, Efaflex said its near 50 years of experience can help with temperature control, hygiene, speed of logistics, safety, while minimising the risk of incidents and ensuring timely deliveries.

The combination of safeguarding users, speeding up logistics, and reducing energy costs are the key design factors built into every Efaflex product, which can address costly and unwanted downtimes.

Reliability, versatility, and durability are some of the objectives cited by leading food producers; upgrading and replacing old roller shutters or sectional doors for energy saving, insulated, high speed alternatives, that also offer a multitude of activation choice such as remote control, or laser scanners.

Efaflex UK managing director, Darren Turrell said that facts such as our doors open at speeds of up to four metres per second are easy to say, but there’s nothing quite like seeing an Efaflex door in motion.

“The speed, the quality, and the durability can’t be translated into a picture or even a video. Returning to Foodex gives us the opportunity to demonstrate the product and discuss how our bespoke door options can help each and every customer,” Turrell explained.

At Foodex 24 – 26th April, NEC on stand (B69) visitors will see three of the most popular models used in the food and beverage industry. The TK-100 thermal door is a unique one-door solution for deep-freeze areas as it delivers exceptional insulation properties and perfect for environments ±30°c. A practically hermetic seal that provides constant temperatures to prevent condensation or buildup of frost. The TK-100 is perfect for deep freeze and blast freeze zones.

Alternatively, the fabric, roll-up easy clean curtain (CRC) with its integrated design, encapsulating all but the curtain and control panel. Perfect for applications calling for the highest levels of hygiene for example within food processing.

Move along to the production loading area or warehouse facility, and this is where the turbo spiral door comes into its own. Opening at speeds of up to 3 metres per second and capable of up to 200,000 operating cycles per year, it features 70% crystal clear acrylic glass laths for increased visibility, user safety and transfer of natural light. It also helps with noise insulation too!

Many of the high street supermarkets and their supply chain have come to rely on Efaflex with clients including drink producers, food manufacturers, and the latest trend – meal kit suppliers.
