No more night door nightmare

Telford, Shropshire, UK:  Seymour Manufacturing has been trialling a new door for the past two and a half years and says the product will “revolutionise cold rooms.”

A Green Door installed in the cold store of a food retailer in September 2009 has impressed users and remains in good condition to this day, says Brian Seymour, chairman, Seymour Manufacturing, that developed the Green Door.

“The Green Door is the most energy saving cold room door with the longest life and minimum servicing requirement available on the market,” he says.

“But it is not this which is set to revolutionise the marketplace – it’s the fact that this green door is installed without a night door,”

“The benefits of this are many fold: there is no night door to keep constantly closed; no high capital cost associated with a night door; no night door maintenance expenditure; and no alarms being disabled by staff with intriguing deployment of chewing gum or the like.  In short, there is simply no night door,” he says.

“Our driving objective is to design products that not only save our customers significant amounts of money and reduce their carbon production, but which are also appealing to the end user. Simply, a non-user-friendly product will be ignored or misused – it needs to be easy to use and attractive.

“Our research has shown that the night door, so often considered essential, is one of the most hated pieces of equipment in current use.  We were quietly confident that the Green Door would revolutionise the cold room sector, but so fundamental are the potential implications that come with it, we were cautious about officially launching it to the market too soon.

“Simply, however, the experience of those already using it verifies the Green Door’s credentials – it really can be installed without a night door and that in itself could be one of the biggest developments in the sector for a long time,” Seymour says.

Seymour Manufacturing created Tempro,one of the thinnest and most thermally efficient materials of its kind, used for logistics services, temporary building liners and specialist applications in aerospace. The material is lightweight, thermal-image proof and superior to anything similar in the world.
