An extensive refurbishment to this family home included this beautiful open plan kitchen. The contrasts of the sterling grey, the graphite of the island and the stainless steel of the Gaggenau fridge, freezer and wine climate cabinet compliment each other very well in the light airy room.

LIVING CONCRETE LTD

The Living Concrete team are highly experienced at working with leading designers to create bespoke furniture for beautiful spaces. That’s why Charlotte Crosland came to us to discuss the design, manufacture and installation of this stunning outdoor kitchen and entertainment space, housed in a purpose built oak building at her client’s Great Missenden home.We cast a number of items including work surfaces, kitchen cupboards with shelving and drawers, fridge enclosure, BBQ, cast in sink with copper fittings and seatWe used a unique eco concrete mix with a hydrophobic agent to limit moisture absorption and the smooth Silk Mist finish was treated and sealed with Satin Stain protection to make it damage proof. Our high-performance concrete doesn’t corrode or degrade, making it a long-lasting, practical choice that will keep its good looks. It’s fireproof too – a major advantage inside the home, but equally so in an outdoor oak-built structure such as this.
Air Curtains Seal Natures Way Foods’ Chill Store

Air Curtains Seal Natures Way Foods’ Chill Store

JS Air Curtains recently sealed the doorway of a salad store at Natures Way Foods in Chichester with a chill store air curtain. The units help maintain the required 2°C temperature inside the cold store by creating a curtain of ambient air over the opening, keeping the chilled air inside, whilst providing unhindered access and visibility for the forklifts.The company previously used fast acting electric doors with plastic slat curtains but with the doors open the temperature near the doorway was rising to 8°C. In addition, the plastic curtains quickly became dirty and scratched and obstructed the vision of the forklift drivers.Sean Burns, Services Manager at Natures Way Foods commented, “We were using electric doors but wanted to have better access and visibility for the forklifts. We also had heat spots near the door and were getting about 8°C with the door open. However, without the door and with the air curtains installed we are now maintaining 2°C, even right next to the doorway in the summer.“Since seeing how effective the air curtains are at sealing the entrance, I’ve ordered two more for a chill store at our Passion Food Café facility in Portsmouth.”By installing air curtains on chill store doorways energy efficiency is also improved. Fridges and freezers waste a great deal of energy every time the doors open. Warm air flows in and refrigerated air flows out. By having a curtain of ambient air blasted down across the doorway the cold air is not allowed to escape ensuring temperature and humidity remain consistent.Natures Way Foods prepares over 12 billion salad leaves per year and supplies salads and prepared vegetables to clients that include Tescos, MacDonalds, Pizza Express and Morrisons.

A chill store air curtain installed outside a cold store at Zwetloots Ltd, “The Flower People” in Bedfordshire, has proved virtually 100% effective at sealing the chilled air inside, with the door left open. Zwetsloots needed to keep its blooms at a temperature of 4-5°C to maintain freshness and provide easy access in and out of the cold store, whilst not chilling the adjoining area.Tests showed that with the air curtain turned on above the open door, the floor temperature directly outside the cold store remained above 12°C – exactly the same as the ambient temperature outside the store!The 2,200m² cold store is linked to a staff-occupied packing area by a fast-acting shutter door. The problem had been the movement of warm air, at a high level, into the chill store when the shutter door was open, which effectively pushed the heavy cold air out into the staff area. For the staff, this provided an uncomfortable and draughty working environment and Zwetsloots was faced with increasing costs in order to maintain the chill store’s cool temperature.David Zwetsloot, Technical Director at Zwetsloots, commented, “We trialed the air curtain for two weeks as we were concerned that the down-draught would damage the flowers and that it wouldn't create a seal across the door. However, the down-draught had no effect on the flowers and it sealed up the fridge and ambient working area very well – a lot better than I expected it to.“Tests showed that there weren’t any cold spots near the entrance when compared to the ambient temperature for the rest of the building. Staff that work near to the chill store used to complain that it was cold. However, since the air curtain was installed we’ve not received a single complaint.”Mr Zwetsloot continued, “It’s difficult to quantify a financial benefit from any energy savings at this time. However, based on maintenance for the existing fast acting roller door alone, the payback period will be between 8 and 17 months.”The air curtain is specially designed to create a continual wall of ambient air over the doorway. It is installed outside the room, directly above the door, and switches on when the roller door opens. For flexibility, it can be fitted to variable heights up to 5m. Since it is so efficient at controlling the flow of air through a cold store entrance, it quickly pays for itself when installed on any cold store that is open for an hour or more per day.Zwetsloots is the UK’s leading supplier of cut flowers to the multiples, wholesalers and retail florists. In peak times, the company produces up to 1.6 million bouquets a week and obtains flowers from countries around the world, including Holland, Spain, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Ecuador, USA and, of course, the UK.
