Food Distributor Controls Temperatures with High Speed Doors

A food distributor was losing fruit in a storage facility due to spoilage.


The customer was very unhappy with the bi-folding, upward-acting sectional doors in their banana room storage facility. The bi-folding doors were very difficult to service and it was tough to get replacement parts. Each banana room held $100,000 worth of product and the customer couldn’t risk using doors that didn’t hold the room’s temperature to keep food from spoiling or cause further breakdowns.


DH Pace recommended low-maintenance, high-speed doors that move at 20 inches per second, versus the 5 inches per second of their existing bi-fold doors. The newer technology required less maintenance and kept the temperature more constant.


New technology offers solutions that can have significant impact to your products or services.
