Keeping foodies comfortable

May 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Products

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems’ door entry and exit solutions ticked all the boxes for one of South Africa’s leading food emporiums, Food Lover’s Market.

Food Lover’s Market evolved from Fruit & Veg City, a family business established in 1993 by brothers Brian and Mike Coppin. The over 100 stores throughout southern Africa, and even as far as Australia, supply a wide range of quality farm fresh produce at affordable prices. The brothers’ vision for a modern eatery where food aficionados can indulge in a range of gourmet foods gave rise to Food Lover’s Market. This stylish food emporium is a theatre of food designed specifically with connoisseurs in mind and caters for discerning customers, the professional ‘foodies’ as well as regular customers who are used to the exceptional quality and variety on offer at Fruit & Veg City.

Food Lover’s Market in Secunda needed a high quality, value for money door solution that would provide a safe, convenient exit point for customers. To ensure a clean, cool and comfortable shopping experience, the door system has to keep insects, wind and heat out of the store and stop the air-conditioning from escaping.

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems specified the Besam Bi-Parting SL500 Sliding Doors which are capable of meeting the stringent demands of an extremely high pedestrian traffic flow at a very high degree of customer safety. Food Lover’s Market therefore did not hesitate in ordering the Besam door system for their Secunda store.

Impressed with the Besam doors’ seamless operation at the Secunda store for over 18 months, Food Lover’s Market placed a second order for five Besam Bi-Parting SL500 Unislide Sliding Doors to meet both their entrance and exit requirements at their Kyalami store in March 2015. ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems, in conjunction with ALUMNISPEC CC Glass and Aluminium, completed the installation in the same month.

The Besam bi-parting door systems are extremely versatile and feature sensors that can be switched to an option of the user’s choice. For example, the doors can be set to automatic for normal door operation to allow two-way traffic while the one-way setting allows passage from the inside only. In addition, the doors can be set to remain permanently open or closed while the auto-partial setting allows for partial opening during two-way traffic. The reset option will return the doors to the closed position after which the doors will function as normal. All sliding door operators are linked to the fire alarm systems for safety and easy evacuation.

The Besam Bi-Parting SL500 doors carry a 12 month warranty which commences from the day of delivery. Regular service inspections are conducted by highly trained qualified technicians to ensure optimum operation. Furthermore, Besam’s flexible one year maintenance contract can be extended every year.

These two successful projects for Food Lover’s Market bear testament to ASSA ABLOY Entrance System’s ability to provide high quality, value for money door solutions that meet the exact job requirements, ultimately ensuring customer satisfaction and peace of mind.
