Hörmann has completed many recent projects for the food and drink sector. Asda, Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury’s and the Co-operative Group have all relied on Hörmann to deliver cost effective loading bay solutions that help ensure they operate to the highest standards of safety while improving their operational efficiency.
The recent introduction of the DOBO system that allows a vehicle to dock onto a loading bay while its rear doors are still closed was a direct development from Hörmann engineers looking to create an improved loading system for controlled environments such as chilled warehousing.
For the level access doors at Asda’s Didcot warehouse Hörmann developed the solution of a single high speed, insulated spiral door to replace the traditional two door solution of a high speed curtain door for daytime use, with a sectional outer door for night-time security. Asda’s consultants calculated the energy savings would pay for these doors within 2 years.
These examples are a direct result of Hörmann’s project engineers listening to, and working with, the end user to ensure their specific requirements are met. Designs are created that meet both current and future needs particularly as fleets change.
