BARRIER GLIDER HIGH-SPEED DOOR DESIGNED FOR COLD STORAGE

Rite-Hite unveiled its Barrier Glider Cold Storage Door, featuring a high-speed, bi-parting door that is ideal for refrigerated warehouses, food manufacturing/processing plants, grocery distribution centers and other facilities that require strict environmental control. The Barrier Glider Door features Rite-Hite’s Thermal-Flex Sealing System, providing a heated perimeter sealing design. In addition, safety is enhanced by its fast-operating systems and panels that automatically reverse when they encounter an obstruction. The door also comes with Rite-Hite’s Graphic User Interface door control panel, allowing workers to troubleshoot settings without personal protective equipment by eliminating arc flash.

ORBIS CORPORATION INTRODUCES NEW BULK CONTAINER FOR THE SEED INDUSTRY

ORBIS has created a new seed bin for the market called the GEN250. The bulk container provides a more efficient and easy-to-use packaging solution for the agriculture industry’s seed needs. Manufactured from high-density polyethylene, the container is built for a long service life and environmentally-friendly seed handling. The containers collapse and stack securely together, minimizing storage needs and increasing transportation efficiency. “The agriculture industry needed a seed container that simplified seed handling through wellthought-out details and features,” says Bob Klimko, market development director for ORBIS Corporation. “A partnership with Seedbox Solution to bring this container to market seemed natural due to its industry-specific reusable packaging expertise and ORBIS’ manufacturing capabilities.”
