National grocery retailer installs 74 high speed freezer doors
25 February 2019
BID Group has successfully completed the major contract for the installation of 74 Klimate K2 high speed freezer doors at the retailer’s new dedicated national frozen food distribution facility at Prologis Park Pineham, Northampton.
The Klimate K2 high speed freezer door is a heavy duty, robust door designed and manufactured by BID Group in the UK to meet the rigorous demands of working in a freezer environment.
The Klimate K2 high speed freezer door is versatile as it can be installed on either the chilled, ambient or freezer side of the opening. It has an air defrost system which ensures the door remains ice and condensation free and has a programmable diagnostic control panel with LED screen which shows the current status of the door.
Mike Calderbank, production director at BID Group said: “Our customer is committed to reducing their carbon footprint and this goal can be aided considerably by using the Klimate K2 high speed freezer door on freezer and chilled areas. These doors also help to improve traffic flow and minimise variation in temperatures which in turn reduce costly energy loss and thereby improve the efficiency of freezer environments. In addition to this, the K2 Freezer door is itself energy efficient as it only requires a 20 Amp supply with adjustable power setting. The pay back on electricity consumption compared to competitor’s doors is less than three years and the design of the K2 door with it’s off the shelf components makes it reliable and simple to maintain. As with all High Speed Doors from Klimate, a full technical support team is at hand to offer advice and guidance should the need arise.”
