Heler foods Packing Sanitising Room at Porthmadog Wales

We work with Heler Food who have sites across the Northwest and North Wales. We were asked to design and install a custom-built sanitising room at the Heler Food packing site.

Case Study

The site is a busy food packing warehouse where hygiene is the priority. We were asked to build them a room to meet their specific needs and requirements, taking into consideration the space available, the intended use of the room and the busy environment surrounding it.

We built the sanitising room using PIR Insulated food-grade white panels. These panels are common in most rooms we build due to their durability, easy clean properties, and insulation values. Inside the area, we built a raised step-over point for their changing room constructed from stainless steel for durability.

We added resin flooring as it is the most hygienic floor in the market due to its laminated coating making it stain resistant and easy to wipe down. It also has an anti-slip layer which offers support and friction when walking on it – ideal for the function of this room.

We used a stainless-steel kerb around the bottom of the wall to protect it from any potential damage from machinery such as forklifts and moving pallets. Stainless steel is a great choice for food processing equipment due to its durability in low temperatures, it is resistant to stains and easy to clean. This will extend the life of the room and mean less maintenance is required.

The customer also requested the room have custom-built hatches with vision panels built into the wall. These were designed to only open one way to help limit the number of people needing to enter the sanitising room reducing cross-contamination. All the fixtures are stainless steel, therefore, easy to keep clean and extremely durable.

Since the installation has been completed, we have continued to attend the site for repairs and maintenance of their existing cold rooms. Doing this vital work ensures all their equipment is working efficiently and is compliant with legal requirements, enabling the business to run smoothly and allowing full use of their facility.

If you have any cold room/sanitising room requirements or other white wall structures you would like a quote for us to design or install, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Testimonials The Flower Bowl

Here at the flower bowl, we have a state of the art co2 refrigeration system. This system is integral to our business, when there’s a fault with it many of the services we provide are unable to continue. Since the system was installed it has had various technical issues. After lots of back and forth, we decided to go out and see if another company would be able to help us diagnose and rectify these issues. Along came DD Cooling who came highly recommended. Over time they have been able to get the system operating fully and make it reliable, this hasn’t been an easy task. It has been time-consuming and I’m sure head-scratching at times. Now the system has been made reliable they continue to service and maintain the equipment to an excellent standard.
