We recently installed insulated Compact Sectional Doors and Movidor Rapid Doors at a Dairy Product Processing Facility in their processing plant in Victoria. The site required the thermal Compact Sectional Insulated Doors as dock delivery doors, to maintain indoor temperatures from a temperature controlled warehouse, from/to loading vehicles collecting and delivering goods.
The facility is a busy site, producing and distributing a range of food products which need to be kept at specific temperatures at all times, not only while in storage but also during transport. The site required thermal dock doors for efficient loading/unloading requirements as well as Movidor Rapid Doors to create an air lock zone between fluctuating outside temperatures and controlled indoor temperatures. Air lock zones can also be very helpful when it comes to creating an extra barrier against dust / wind / pests / leaves from blowing into the site.
With dock delivery doors, some of the key requirements are for thermal protection, security, reliability and durability, with solid barrier construction that can stand up to a demanding environment.
Durability and Reliability
The loading dock doors onsite are raised and lowered frequently, sometimes around the clock and with a high-traffic environment with forklifts and other equipment passing through all day long. By minimising the amount of time that each door takes to open and close, energy loss can be further reduced whilst efficiency is increased.
What makes the Compact Sectional Door different to standard Sectional Doors?
- Compact Sectional Doors are a unique product with insulated door leaves boasting an insulation / R-Value of EN12428; Panel U=0.76 W/m2K
- The compact nature of the doors ensures that overhead space is not impacted by the door itself, and can be utilised for lighting or other equipment.
- No balance springs - which means less maintenance requirements
- Design options - the insulated panels come in a variety of 10 RAL colour options and various window options including double glazing.
- Wicket Door - an additional option includes adding a wicket door for pedestrian staff to exit / enter without having to open up the entire door.
- External and internal installation options.
- High speed motor - opening speed adjustable to a maximum of 60cm/sec. and a maximum closing speed of 30cm/sec.
SCOPE OF WORKS
1. Design Consultancy and Planning
2. Made to measure Movidor High Speed Doors and Compact Sectional Thermal Door
3. Delivery and Installation
New thermal Compact Sectional Doors and Movidor High Speed Rapid Doors provide effective segregation from the outdoor elements and creating better efficiency throughout the site. Compact Sectional Doors also require very minimal headspace which means that overhead lighting and/or equipment is not compromised.
Neat fixing design allows effective seal to floor, especially for insulated lloading dock delivery doors and rapid installation ensures minimal impact on operations. See below - Movidor high speed doors installed along with the Thermal Compact Sectional Doors.
Thermal Compact Sectional Doors installed for loading dock access for deliveries and receivables by refrigerated haulage vehicles, personnel and other refrigerated warehouse transport and logistics equipment. The insulated, clear windows provide safety and effective clear vision for those both within and outside of the site.

The production team were looking for high speed interior doors for access for staff pulling manual pallet jacks.
For the initial stage of the project, Remax designed and installed approx.1500 sqm of Flexwall, demountable partitioning system, to segregate the air conditioned existing section of the facility, from the new extension. The system is suspended from existing steelwork; tensioned to the floor.
Compact Sectional Doors have also been installed at Geoffrey (Jeftomson) Thompson Fruit Packing in the loading docks at the new Orrvale facility. Compact Sectional Doors are manufactured bespoke to the facility requirements and aesthetics.
