Initially dairy farmers, the Vizzarri family began growing asparagus in the late 1980s after acquiring more farmland. Steady growth and expansion over the years has resulted in the Vizzarri operation becoming one of the most dynamic horticultural enterprises in the area. Today, the family oversees a total of 26 properties totaling 1900 acres and producing asparagus for seven months of the year. Along with asparagus supplied by several other growers, the Vizzarri Packhouse expects to process about 4000 tonnes of asparagus per year.
To maintain their steady growth and improve their facility, some recent upgrades were made to their Packhouse, and Remax were asked to provide two internal door solutions.

Two Movidor high speed doors were used within the factory to both segregate and provide access between different areas of the packhouse.
With no surrounding steelwork to mount the doors to, Remax were asked to provide custom steelwork fabrication, in order to establish a solid mounting surface. Two doors were required in different areas of the Packhouse; applications that called for an access door that segregated different areas, and could open repetitively to allow for passing forklift traffic. These two doors were set to an opening speed of 2 meters per second, to promote maximum efficiency when travelling between different areas of the factory.
Fitted out with a pair of falcon radar assemblies as well as a standard push-button, this integrated activation accessory permits the doors to detect motion once traffic entered a certain zone surrounding the doors. With a four-piece integrated traffic light system, the door maintained its speed and traffic flow efficiency, without compromising on safety. The LED lightstrips run Blue while the door is closed, but turn Red when the door is opening and closing. When the door is at its open state, the lights turn green. These lights were recessed into the door guides, and are visible from both sides of the opening.
