CA and ULO areas are extremely suitable for the delayed ripening of vegetables and fruit, also known as fruit ripening. Storing fruit and vegetables in a CA room or a ULO room has the advantage that these can be stored for up to a year longer. This is done by putting the products to sleep through the reduction of oxygen and carbon dioxide. This will stop the fruit ripening and keep the products fresh for longer.
With the delayed fruit ripening, it is important that no gases can escape from the ripening room, so the oxygen and carbon dioxide values remain as constant as possible. The more constant these values remain, the better the quality of the products is preserved. In addition, the more gas escapes from the ripening room, the more energy it takes to maintain these values again.
To prevent this, you can opt for a robust, reliable door that ensures your CA or ULO ripening room is completely gastight. The Metaflex CA door is fitted with high-quality hinges and locks, so the door closes firmly and remains closed.
