Remax Doors Case Study: Potato Packing Factory Solution

A prominent potato packing factory in South Australia was grappling with a significant problem: birds. Their presence onsite was creating huge problems due to contaminating stock. The current roller doors onsite needed to be upgraded to a more robust solution to combat not only the bird problem but also dust, dirt and temperature control.

The Challenge

Avian invaders were wreaking havoc within the facility, contaminating potatoes, defecating throughout the operational area, and creating biological and physical safety concern. Their presence not only led to product spoilage but increased the workload for the staff who had to continuously attempt to usher them out.

This was highly disruptive to daily operations and in addition, the factory faced issues with dust, dirt, and temperature inconsistencies due to an often-open steel door that was slow to operate.

Before & After 


The Solution

Understanding the gravity of the factory’s problems, REMAX recommended and installed a custom-made Rapid Door.

The HS50 door, painted in the factory's chosen colour of blue, spanned a substantial 5.2 meters in height and 4.6 meters in width. 

To address the specific bird problem, the door was equipped with a cutting-edge sensor, the Falcon Radar Motion Detector. This sensor was uniquely designed to detect and open for larger objects such as forklifts and trucks, but not smaller entities like birds or people. For human access, a personnel door was conveniently installed adjacent to the Rapid Door.

The Results

With the installation of the Rapid Door, the factory underwent a transformation. Birds, once a perennial issue, were no longer able to access the facility.

The door's efficient operation meant it remained predominantly closed, preventing contamination from dust and dirt.

Additionally, the factory's temperature became more stable, contributing to enhanced operational efficiency and product preservation. The previous steel door, which often remained open due to its slow mechanism, was now a thing of the past.
