A Customer Success Story from Northern Dock Systems

Project Overview

Being a pharmaceutical manufacturer, Patheon Thermo Fisher, wanted to prevent contamination from one room to the next as the powders they work with have the potential to become airborne.

To prevent cross-contamination from happening at their facility, they contacted Northern Dock Systems for a solution. We provided them with a preventative cross-contamination door system and touchless activators to keep the different areas isolated.

Seven Iso-Roll high-speed fabric roll-up doors were installed to section off each area. These doors are GMP, FDA and EMEA compliant as the low profile track with a soft seal (no metal) bottom edge stops air infiltration from the ground up. The full break away curtain has an auto-reset feature. No tools are required to reset the door and it prevents downtime and/or costly repairs.

In addition to the high-speed fabric doors, we installed a touchless wave sensor-actuator on either side of the door. Employees never have to worry about cross-contamination from pushing a button to open a door. They can simply open a door with a wave of a hand.

These sensors can be easily installed or retrofitted to any type of door. The faceplates come in a variety of designs including white, black, cream, illuminated, single or double gang boxes.
