At the best of times, supermarket stockroom doors need to be durable, long-lasting, and low maintenance, to perform in the high-pressure environment of the Supermarket sector. With the daily pressure to fill the shelves, these traffic doors can really cop a beating! Stockroom openings in large retail stores must withstand high levels of rough traffic, so quality door systems are of paramount importance.
In a recent service call to Woolworths Springvale, Remax were called upon to replace a pair of doors that were too damaged to repair.

Initially called out to complete a service call to a pair of stockroom doors, our Service Technicians quickly identified that the doors were too damaged to effectively repair. The existing doors were a large pair of non-Remax swingdoors, - heavy, inflexible, full-steel frames, installed on a cool-room panel opening. With no additional support framework installed on the unstable opening, the doors had quick deteriorated with impact, not only worn out and broken the swingdoors themselves, but cracked and damaged the wall surrounds too.
With the broken doors obstructing traffic and holding up stock refills, Remax was able to assess, measure the opening, and manufacture a new pair of doors in an accelerated time-frame, to minimize further disruptions to the Woolworths team's store operation.
Returning to site, Remax removed the existing pair of doors, and repaired the damaged opening. First installing a new, full-surround self-supporting gantry frame, Remax ensured that the weight of the doors was distributed over the framework, instead of putting pressure on the cool-room panel opening. The 2400 series light-weight, aluminium PVC doors were then mounted to the gantry frame.
With a clear frosty finish to 1200mm high, the doors permitted full visibility, whilst retaining some privacy in the lower half of the doors. Fitted with a fall-proof safety wire assembly, Remax ensured that even in the case of the doors coming off the hinges, the ultra strong cable will prevent the door leaves from falling and hurting someone.
In removing the old, heavy and damaged stockroom doors, installing some support framework and a new pair of Remax 2400 series, Remax was able to provide a safe, clean stockroom entry, and restore efficient traffic flows to the Woolworths Springvale team.
