Melbourne Fresh Distribution Centre

Client: Vaughan Constructions

Location: VIC

Industry: Distribution

A multi-million dollar, 5 Star Green Star rated project facility was constructed in Truganina, for the large-scale storage and delivery of fresh produce and chilled products to hundreds of Victorian supermarkets. At 27,000 square meters, the distribution centre facility is one and a half times the size of the MCG field, and will bring customers produce from more than 500 suppliers.
Remax’s Movidor High Speed Rapid Roller Doors were honoured to have the opportunity to have a part in this phenomenal project, alongside the impressive work of the builder, Vaughan Constructions. Remax were engaged to manufacture and install a total of 29 Movidor Rapid Roller Doors throughout this facility, of various sizes and specifications.

In a food processing facility of this scale with modern sustainability efforts, it is imperative to have functional, efficient traffic flows, and temperature controlled doorway solutions providing fast, seamless access to all areas of the warehouse. Downtime in openings, waiting for doors to open and close, and temperature loss in openings can mean lower output, increased production costs, and greater energy inefficiency. The Movidor rapid roller door solution was the perfect answer to maximize traffic through the openings, and minimize air loss.

Nine Movidor Thermic Insulated Rapid Roller Doors were installed in internal rooms throughout the facility, for temperature controlled access to coolrooms and freezers. Movidor Thermic Insulated roller doors utilize a unique 3.0mm thick, 1450gsm foam backed curtain designed to reduce condensation in cold to ambient temperature openings. With high Thermal Conductivity, these doors are designed to reduce energy loss through the doorways, whilst still maintaining high operating speeds and traffic efficiency.

The benefits of Movidor High Speed Rapid Doors are clear:

  • Reducing both delivery lead times and carbon footprint
  • Integrating the warehouse and transport management system
  • Significantly helping to reduce freight movements therefore saving time

Twenty standard Movidor Rapid Roller Doors were installed in event and produce rooms, to promote fast and efficient access throughout the facility, whilst maintaining a constant barrier against airflow and air-born pests. With the unique, Movidor crash-out and self-repair feature, these rapid roller doors were the ideal solution to increase traffic flow efficiency, lower maintenance costs, and promote energy efficiency throughout the massive facility.

All doors were fitted with full-surround brush seals, to reduce airflow through the tracks of the door, and further increase temperature and dust control throughout the facility. The Movidor rapid roller doors were also fitted with Falcon radar detectors, designed to detect oncoming traffic within set parameters of the door opening, and open and close behind the forklift and pedestrian traffic.
