Retail

The retail sector refers to all operators of different sizes engaged in the self-service sale of consumer goods from premises equipped with parking facilities. The large number of shops enables the different brands to communicate on a large scale and to negotiate low prices through buying centres.

The challenge

Doors in supermarkets can have multiple functions. The external doors of the shop must be burglar-resistant to prevent unwanted intrusion and panic-resistant to enable staff and the public to evacuate the building in case of fire. Interior doors must have high impact resistance and guarantee durability without excessive maintenance, as they are subjected to intensive use. In addition, they must offer fire protection.

The Heinen solution

Major retail chains such as Aldi, Carrefour, Colruyt, Delhaize et Lidl, Ikea, Cactus, Decathlon, MediaMarkt … (among others) continue to rely on Heinen for the supply of their steel doors. This way they put their trust in the combinable performance of Heinen doors to secure the vulnerable parts of their facilities.
