This week was a very special week for our DAN-matic department, because we had 3 orders going out to 3 different continents in the world. We are very humble and proud, regarding the fact that our kit-sets are being used all over the world for door installations and manufacturing. We always try to give our customers a large variety of solutions, regarding all of our products, so that our customers can customize their own perfect solution.
For more than 20 years our kit-sets has been installed all over the world, and we can now proudly say that we are represented all our the world through our DAN-matic kit-sets. One of the key things to supplying the kit-sets to different parts of the world, is the ability to customize the solution to the client. The technical specifications do not always match the local demands, but we always manage to find a solution, whether it is through a customized automatic system, or another special feature.
We are also more than happy to send out one of our supervisors to help with the installation with the DAN-matic kit-sets, if our customers are in need of technical support. Our customers also have the opportunity to send their fitters, and supervisors to DAN-doors for a technical course with one of our own supervisors. This has proven to be a big success, and all the participants will receive a certificate certifying them as certified DAN-matic fitters.
If you want to know more about our DAN-matic kit-sets please feel free to contact our project coordinator Kasper Boeriis on KBO@DAN-doors.dk or on +45 87 93 87 25.

New, highly insulated high speed sectional door from DAN-doors specially designed for freezer rooms. Saves on energy costs, ensures logistics flow and cuts maintenance costs
Few of us leave the front door open for long in the winter. The house gets cold quickly and it takes time and energy to warm it up again.
The same applies to refrigerated and freezer warehouses - only the other way round. Every effort is made to keep the cold inside to avoid expending resources on keeping the temperature down. Forklift trucks have to be able to get in and out of the warehouse, which requires access through the doors. That's why door quality is critical when it comes to reducing energy consumption.
Cutting cold loss and energy costs despite frequent door use just got easier. DAN-doors have developed a new, highly-insulated high speed sectional door purpose-built for refrigerated and freezer warehouses.
“We completed development of the new door in late 2014, and have just installed one at Hørkrams freezer distribution warehouse in Hørning, just outside Aarhus. An extra 8,000 square metres of warehouse space had been built with our high speed doors between the warehouse and goods inwards/outwards area. That meant a temperature difference of over 35 degrees C, as the warehouse temperature is minus 25 against plus 10 on the other side of the doors. The materials used for the doors between the two zones is critical, and this is where our new door really scores in terms of insulation levels and open/close speeds,” says DAN-doors Sales Manager, Mads Borne.
Borne goes on to explain that the high speed doors consist of a flexible 80 millimetre thick door sheet that contains high-insulation material. U-value is below 0.5 W/m2xK.
“The door opens at a speed of up to 2 metres per second, and closes in 3 seconds. That means a door that cuts down the time it is open compared to traditional sliding sectional doors. Drafts and energy loss are reduced, whilst allowing easy, rapid logistics flow and access for the forklift trucks running in and out. The forklifts avoid having to wait for a slow door taking 5-6 seconds to open. The new door opens automatically when it detects a forklift approaching and then closes again. There are major savings to be made on energy costs and massive savings on time waiting for the door. What you get is quite simply improved logistics flow,” says Borne.
“That's also what Hørkram finds,” explains Borne. This catering wholesaler supplies food products to canteens and catering businesses all over the country. The distribution centre has achieved vastly improved conditions that reduce its annual energy costs significantly.
“We've run tests with the door in the fish industry with a company in Northern Jutland and in Germany. A sliding sectional door in the same
environment and traffic flow as the one we tested is open 900 hours a year on average. That figure is reduced to 450 hours with the new high speed door,” explains Borne.
Hørkram were one of the first to invest in the door. Amatech, Hørkram’s prime building contractor for the new warehouse, convinced Hørkram of the advantages of the DAN-doors high speed sectional door.
Hørkram quickly realised the potential, which led to an order for four doors. The feedback received indicates that the entire setup works extremely well.
“Before we ordered the doors, we calculated the savings and looked at options for streamlining logistics with high speed sectional doors. We could see that Hørkram would save 60,000 kilowatts each year for each door. Those are figures that make an impression, and given that the doors also improve logistics, the whole situation looked highly favourable,” comments Borne.
The savings themselves give a payback period for the doors of max. three years. Maintenance costs are also the absolute minimum.
“The best thing about the door is that it is so flexible. It runs in a frame that consists of stainless steel profiles. If a forklift truck drives into it, the door sheet simply pops out of the frame and can be quickly put back into place without damage to the sheet or frame. Hørkram are delighted, and tell us that it's a massive improvement. Previously, there was always a risk of the doors being damaged by collision; they were expensive to repair and there was always the risk of being unable to use it until it had been repaired. We avoid all that, as the truck driver can put the door back into place himself,” says Borne. He goes on to say that there is massive interest in the product and that DAN-doors have high expectations for sales.
“We've delivered them to freezer distribution centres in Sweden and Germany. Hørkram have already told us that we are part of their plans for expansion when they build new warehouses in Denmark. There's no doubt that the product can definitely be a best seller for us. We already have plenty of orders for it,” says Borne.
