The correct climate zones separation pays off

Every industry is different

Everyone has the same expectations: save costs, optimize workflow, increase security. But every industry, every company has individual requirements.

We plan separation of your climate zones precisely and individually, so that it fits perfectly into your work processes. And brings maximum energy savings.

The good thing is: we already measure the savings during the planning phase, so that you know the payback period for your investment.

Why climate zones separation?

There are many reasons for effective climate zones separation. A key factor is the price development on the energy market, which for a long time is going in only one direction: upwards. Resource conservation is also an important factor in the context of sustainability concepts.

In the area of technical facility management, however, many potential opportunities for energy saving are still unused. This also includes climate zones separation. The more effective it works, the higher are the savings, which can make 60% and more!

However, aspects such as accelerated work processes and better employee health must also be considered for an optimal solution.

Goals of climate zones separation

1. Reduce energy costs

The major part of the energy losses comes from door and gate openings between work areas with different temperatures. Effective thermal barriers prevent warm air from flowing into cooled areas and cold air from flowing into heated areas. This reduces the use of energy for cooling / heating the air-conditioned zone.

In addition, a highly efficient climate zone separation in the deep-freeze area prevents condensation and, thus, formation of fog, snow or ice at doorways and evaporators. The latter work more effectively and freeze significantly less, which has a positive impact on energy consumption.

2. Accelerate work processes

Thermal separation itself is easy to implement: an isolated wall or door is sufficient. However, in case of a barrier-free passage, technically more complex solutions are required

We rely on high-speed doors and / or air curtain systems that do not hinder the rapid shop-floor transportation and still ensure optimal climate zones separation. High-speed doors open and close up to seven times faster than conventional sectional doors. Air curtain systems allow an unobstructed view through the work areas and do not require shop-floor transport to brake. This frees up valuable working time that can be used more efficiently.

3. Improve employee health

Especially in sales and logistics centers, the picking and loading areas are often exposed to strong temperature fluctuations. With a functional climate zones separation, the climate is kept constant and cold and drafts are avoided. The result: the sick leave cases in these work areas considerably decrease, employee satisfaction increases – and the issue of staff shortages is no longer an issue for you.

This is how quick climate zones separation from VEOtec pays off.

The payoff period for the investment depends, of course, on the local conditions. Good planning helps to take into account all factors, determine the optimal solution and, thus, provide a reliable calculation basis.

In addition to the total costs, we also calculate the energy savings for each project. The payback period is almost always shorter than our customers think.

An example:

Customer: international grocery wholesaler
Project: Installation of insulated high-speed doors for deep-freeze bearings
Environment: about 300 door cycles per day
Electricity cost reduction: 1.600 EUR per month
Personal cost reduction: 800 EUR pro month
Amortisation period: about 10 months

These industries benefit

We offer precisely planned solutions for:

– Deep freeze environments (deep-freeze logistics, food manufacturers)
– Logistikunternehmen (Vertriebszentren, Lagerwirtschaft, Kommissionierung)
– Logistics companies (distribution centers, warehouse management, picking)
– Retail (from the boutique to the consumer market)
– Service companies (finance, etc.)
– Public buildings (administrations, museums, etc.).
