Leek Tulips B.V. is a young and flourishing company located in Berkhout. They specialise in the forcing and cultivation of tulips. Salco was asked to supply and install overhead and sliding doors for this beautiful flower bulb company. Behind these doors, the flower bulbs and flowers are well stored.

"We are very satisfied with the Salco doors, they work perfectly"

Arjan Leek of Leek Tulips says. "We have known Salco for a long time. When the specifications for the new shed were drawn up, Salco was mentioned. It was actually very logical to approach Salco for the doors.


For the building of Leek Tulips, overhead doors and sliding doors have been chosen. Behind these doors, the bulbs are stored in the summer. In the winter, the flowers are stored behind the doors. Some doors contain a wicket door for easy access to the premises. In addition to storing the bulbs and flowers, it is easy to drive through them. A number of doors are electrically operated and have a remote control. This allows pallets and large containers to be driven in easily.

The overhead doors are cold bridge free and ensure that the heat is kept out. As a result, the flowers and flower bulbs remain beautiful for a long time and can be stored properly. "We have little maintenance on the doors and if there is any problem, Salco is close by and they will be with us in no time," says Arjan. Leek Tulips is very satisfied with Salco's service and the quality of the doors.


Several PKD-100 sliding doors have been installed. These doors have a good seal, thanks to the all-round sealing by means of double rubber profiles. In addition, these sliding doors are optimally accessible. At Leek Tulips, several doors have been placed next to each other and can slide in front of each other. This creates one large sliding wall, allowing efficient loading and unloading.

Besides the sliding doors, a number of overhead doors have also been installed. The T-280K overhead door is cold bridge free. This overhead door has a high insulation value and is therefore suitable for cold stores. The T-280K overhead door can be used almost everywhere, thanks to the very large variety of rail systems. Overhead doors have also been installed at the docking station. Trucks can easily connect to this station and load their cargo here.

"We are very satisfied with our doors, they work perfectly and require little maintenance," concludes Arjan Leek.
