St Albans based The Bread Roll Company is a leading manufacturer of bread and rolls for many of the UK’s supermarket groups. At its Lyon Way production plant the company bakes over one million 800 gram loaves and bread rolls every week.
The company has just invested nearly three quarters of a million pounds on a brand new 4,500 sq ft extension and new bakery production equipment. The new building also included a stores area where a roller shutter door was required for the external face of the premises, so the company called upon the services of the UK’s leading roller shutter door and dock leveller supplier, Ro-Dor.
The company’s PVCu roller shutter doors are widely used throughout every part of the UK food industry in preparation areas, processing departments and chill rooms. Ro-Dor also supply dock levellers to assist the efficient loading or unloading of the various height vehicles that visit site.
Nigel Morton, Food Industry Specialist at Ro-Dor, surveyed the site and recommended a three phase powered external fit white door with a canopy finished in white. An existing externally operated photo-cell automatic opener and closer was re-used while an additional photo-cell safety barrier was also fitted. The three phase motor has a 0.5m per second opening and closing speed with automatic timed closure.
Each Ro-Dor is manufactured to exact specifications using double-skinned PVCu lathes which provide good thermal insulation and help to retain ambient temperatures while also being sturdy enough to take some of the knocks and bangs of busy production plants without damage. There are no exposed or greasy moving parts, which is an added hygiene benefit.
