Ripening Rooms


Ripening Rooms are a key element to ensure your fruit meets the supermarkets demanding specification. Built alongside cold stores, distribution facilities or stand-alone, these pressurised rooms are designed to allow efficient and even ripening of the stored product using unique spring loaded flipper seals to direct  warmer circulated air only through the loaded pallets.


The rooms are equipped with the latest measurement and control systems designed and made specifically for each individual ripening requirement while ensuring excellent energy efficiency.


We use Polyinsurate (PIR) panels in a variety of thickness to obtain the correct holding temperature for walls and ceilings expertly installed with foodsafe aluminium flashings and ceiling suspension (if required). These tongue & groove fitting panels from Kingspan © are designed to retain the sensitive environment of the controlled atmosphere within.


Our ripening room doors are specially designed for the storage and access of the product inside. We offer vertical lift insulated doors to maximise space efficiency and speed of access.         

Control Systems:

Our specialist control systems monitors the condition and controls gas flow with heater to assist ripening of the produce. The systems work in conjunction with the air flow fans specially placed for maximum air flow.


          Our refrigeration division can advise and design the best system for your application and will always endeavour to provide the more cost           effective and energy efficient equipment for your stores. Click here for more information.


For either existing floors or providing a new powerfloat finish floors, we seal the store area to ensure the atmosphere within is maintained to maximise ripening and storage life.

Electrics & Lighting:

For maximum storage, we can install ripening racking which can enable double decker storing which is designed to be placed in the correct location for the required airflow around the product.

We can also install cat ladders for ceiling plant access, goal post & armco protection.
