Compact Sectional Doors at Confectionery Manufacturer - Claremont, Tasmania

PROJECT NAME: Confectionery Manufacturer, Tasmania
CLIENT OVERVIEW: Confectionery Manufacturer in Claremont, Tasmania, makes a variety of chocolates. In fact, each year, 22,00 tonnes of crumb (evaporated mixture of cocoa mass, condensed milk and sugar) is produced at Claremont, to be made into chocolate.



The client asked Remax to supply and install a Remax Compact Sectional Door to their very busy wash bay area situated in the chocolate processing area. The Processing area is kept at a warm, if not ‘tropical’ temperature to ensure that the consistency of the mixing chocolate stays at a constant temperature while being mastered and mixed into Chocolate products.

The Wash bay plays an important part as it is used to wash down processing implements after each batch / flavour of chocolate is complete, before starting the next batch.

The Compact Sectional Door is a unique sectional door where theer are no balancing speings, reduced moving parts and no overhead beams to disrupt overhead equipment / lighting / ducting. Traditional Overhead doors can require a large overhead space for beams for the door roll onto when in the open position, whereas the Compact Sectional door folds up in a concertina manner - into a small opening above the doorway. The door leaves can also be recessed into the ceiling - see below in a Car Showroom project where the design flow is of optimum importance. Read more about this car showroom project here.
