Automatic doors keep seafood in perfect condition

Fish and seafood should always be kept in perfect condition, and carefully chosen entrance solutions can help secure the right temperature for the products to keep fresh.

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems recently provided Dutch fish retailer Schmidt Zeevis – a company which provides top restaurants and cruise ships with fish and seafood - with a combination of entrance solutions to help them manage the indoor climate in their store and expedition area.

Having been located in the city-center of Rotterdam for nearly a hundred years, Schmidt Zeevis decided to move to a brand new venue. A combination of new automatic entrance solutions was installed at their new location in order to regulate the climate and keep the produce fresh.

Maintaining the right temperature with the right door

Schmidt Zeevis requested an entrance solution that would optimize the flow of pedestrian traffic in and out of the building. This led to the installation of an attractively designed Besam UniTurn revolving door, which is equipped with sliding doors. The revolving door effectively separates the indoor and outdoor climates, keeping the temperature low enough to prevent the ice in the display cases from melting.

Preserve the temperature while loading and unloading goods

In the expedition area Schmidt Zeevis needed an entrance solution that would buffer the indoor temperature of two degrees Celsius against variable outside temperatures. To maintain an optimal internal temperature the choice was made to install Crawford OH370 overhead sectional doors with extra thick panels as well as levelers with a movable telescopic lip which ensures an unchanging temperature while loading and unloading goods. To provide a complete sealing around the trucks and vans while they are docked inflatable dock shelters which inflate around the vehicle have been installed.
