The product is manufactured in the UK by roller shutter door producer JR Industries, and imported by Serco in kit form for local assembly.
Serco technical director Denri Gottemaker says that the door can be easily closed and sealed for improved security without having to move the vehicle away from the loading dock once loaded. This reduces the shunting required.
“During the loading process, the double rear doors sometimes stay open overnight, which opens the way for pilfering. Also, double rear doors open outwards, which makes them prone to damage, especially as they are often not properly latched,” he explains.
The advantages of the new insulated roll- over door impressed fresh produce distributor Freshmark to the extent that an order for 41 new trailers for retail chain Shoprite Checkers will have the new insulated rollover door fitted.
Retail store chain Spar has also ordered three of the new doors for testing and there are more orders from other companies in the pipeline.
Gottemaker says customers like Freshmark have decided on the rollover doors for their new vehicles after studying the product and assessing its quality and durability.
rollover doors used were not very durable, making them problematic and high maintenance.
