horman1When D & F McCarthy set about creating a state-of-the-art warehouse for their fruit and vegetable wholesale business industrial door specialists Cooks of Norwich were called in  to provide the best solutions for the new build. Using their knowledge and expertise Cooks recommended Hörmann loading bays, dock levellers and doors to meet the exacting requirements of this new chilled facility. Loading bays, sectional doors, rolling shutters,fast action internal doors, fireshutters and steel hinged doors were all installed by Cooks.

Due to the varied fleet of vehicles operated, Cooks installed dock levellers on two of the seven loading bays with draw bridges selected for the others.  Insulated sectional doors help to maintain the ambient indoor temperature with four fast action doors providing the necessary access and thermal insulation to maintain the correct temperatures throughout the building.

For the customer collection point Hörmann APU sectional doors were chosen, one fully glazed with Hörmann, thermally efficient,  scratch resistant Duratec. This area is treated as an “air lock” with the external and internal doors not opening at the same time to help maintain the correct ambient temperature.

Kevin Notley Director of Cooks is a firm believer in the quality of  Hörmann products, that give his customers the longevity and reliability they need, as he explains. “As specialists in this area our reputation is based on the job we do and the service we provide. We ensure that we give the best service there is and know that by using Hörmann we are giving the customer the best value for money and trouble free operation. The precision engineering across their huge range ensures seamless integration and helps us to complete our work on time and to the highest standards that we set for ourselves.”
