Galebreaker Agridoor for Pet Food Factory

Posted on 3rd October 2019 Skinners Pet Foods Suffolk

Skinner’s Pet Foods have been making premium dog food products from their mill in Stradbroke, Suffolk for seven generations. Based at the site since 1688, the popular local company is going through a period of expansion and required our services as they upgrade their facilities to deal with increased production. 

We installed a premium electrically operated Galebreaker “Agridoor” rolling door screen for a large structural opening, measuring 5 metres wide and 6 metres tall. The blue PVC coated polyester mesh is incredibly strong, weather resistant, flame retardant and provides ventilation – making it an ideal choice for storing grains and food products. The remote controlled door has simple operation controls, and built in safety features to keep staff safe at all times.
