Door solutions and services company Maxiflex recently supplied a specialised door solution for a leading citrus fruit handling company situated in the Eastern Cape. The customer required an overhead panel sectional door for its new 11 000m2 warehouse. A superior quality door solution was essential as product handling in and out of the warehouse must be swift to maintain the facility’s interior temperature in order to reduce the risk of costly produce spoilage and losses.

Viaplan Consulting Engineers and Randcivils, who were responsible for the project employed Maxiflex to provide an optimum door solution. The two companies have employed Maxiflex on a number of similar installations in the area.

Maxiflex identified the 1042P overhead panel sectional door from ASSA ABLOY Entrance Solutions as the ideal solution for the customer’s needs, one that met requirements as well as offering a pleasing aesthetic appearance that perfectly complements the warehouse’s façade.

Ideally suited for warehouses, logistics centres and factories, the robust, flexible, efficient and safe door system presents excellent sealing properties. Each part of the overhead panel sectional door is built to the highest standards to ensure reliable operation even under extremely high workloads and arduous conditions.

Made up of 42mm panels, the door forms a 4-way seal when closed, ensuring outstanding insulation from all weather conditions, protecting the fruit inside the warehouse. The door’s design has earned a class 3-certification for water tightness, wind load and air permeability. Furthermore, by helping to regulate the warehouse’s internal temperature, energy costs are kept to a minimum with subsequent costs savings for the customer. The panels are filled with flame retardant polyurethane so the door won't accelerate a fire and a control panel fitted to the door will indicate any faults.

Maxiflex’s turnkey industrial entrance solutions meet a multitude of applications across a number of industries, including automotive manufacturing and mining to food and beverage, refrigeration, hospitality and pharmaceutical. The company’s product offering includes a range of industrial sectional doors; vertical-lifting fabric doors for large openings and heavy-industry environments; loading dock equipment; protection screens, and impact doors. The company also manufactures and supplies PVC strip curtains.

In addition to its sole distribution rights for ASSA ABLOY Entrance Solutions in sub-Saharan Africa, Maxiflex recently acquired exclusive rights to distribute Stackdoor, a security grille manufactured in The Netherlands, in Southern Africa. The company has also obtained the rights from American Mine Door to manufacture and install underground ventilation mine doors in South Africa.
