How do you stop contamination entering your factory/greenhouse?
Hygiene has always been important for greenhouse growers. It is especially important to prevent bacteria and virus from spreading. Maintaining greenhouse hygiene and reducing potential threats to plant health should be taken very seriously. Innovations such as the ProfilGate may be beneficial for reducing risk and spread of disease in greenhouse's and packhouse sites.
Mitigating the spread of harmful viruses such as Tomato Brown Rugose Fruit Virus (ToBRFV for short) in our industry is paramount. Possibly this system could also add another layer of protection? It is well worth consideration.
ProfileGate -The idea
No matter if you unload from a dirty delivery truck or take dirt inside your facility via material handling devices – most receiving areas build up dirt, debris and dust from tires and wheels. The next set of transport vehicles takes the dirt further and deeper into your storage and production areas till it causes issues inside your facilities
By strategically placing ProfilGate® throughout your building, you can now capture up to 90 % of dirt – which is otherwise attached to your wheels, casters and tires – before it migrates and enters your production facility.
Where can you use this?
1. Technical cleanliness
In most cases, the improved indoor cleanliness through the use of ProfilGate® is not only visible at the entrance, but deep in production as well. Your employees, customers, suppliers and auditors recognise at first glance that you are actively achieving the highest levels of technical cleanliness in your operation
2. Improved hygiene
The regulations on separation of hygiene zones or areas are constantly tightening up. With ProfilGate® Aqua you integrate active cleaning and disinfection in one single step, meeting highest hygiene requirements.
3. Less customer complaints
ProfilGate® helps prevent contamination of surfaces, which can lead to complaints. In this way, contamination is avoided within both the production and storage areas. The results are a better image for your brand, less breakdowns and less inventory depreciation.
4. Less cleaning cost
ProfilGate® automatically collects the dirt in every entrance or driving zone. As a result, less debris and dust is transported into the facility, extending the cleaning cycles by about 40%. More importantly, your sweepers only clean during usage, whereas ProfilGate® cleans all day!
5. Reduced maintenance cost
Thanks to the installation of ProfilGate®, you will extend the lifetime of your epoxy coating or industrial resin flooring as the surface gets less scratched, as dirt on tyres, wheels and casters acts like sandpaper. Overall you will notice far less damage throughout facilities that use ProfilGate®.
6. Improved health and safety for your employees
Reduced dirt will create a better air quality in the environment while saving filter costs. The cleaner and dryer floors will reduce the risk of accidents, as the slip hazards are minimised. Another major improvement is that forklifts are less likely to spin or slide.
