Innovation at Zhendre
Our company possesses strong technological capabilities that we use to support innovation and to create tailor-made solutions in response to customer requests.
Our design office is composed of engineers and technicians specialised in sheet metal work, welding & fabrication, insulation, electricity, mechanics and, of course, refrigeration and air conditioning, our original profession.
About 4% of turnover is devoted to R&D and innovation, and our continuous monitoring of new technologies enables us to better orient our innovations in order to meet our customers’ expectations.
As our products are very often used in extreme climatic conditions and are also subject to high mechanical stress, we conduct numerous tests during development.
We have our own climatic test room, which, with the help of 21 sensors connected to data acquisition software, allows us to measure the performance of refrigerated containers and tent air conditioners and thus ensure that the expected performance is perfectly matched to that of the final product.
All our approaches to Development and Innovation are in line with our unwavering concern to better understand our customers’ demands in order to satisfy them and earn their loyalty.
IMPROVED AND TESTED PRODUCTS
While the development of new products expected by the market remains one of our priorities, the improvement of existing products (energy efficiency, ergonomics, design, maintenance) is also a permanent concern, and we pay particular attention to feedback on the operation and performance of our equipment in the field.
Thus, on our refrigerated containers designed for the French Army in collaboration with the Commissariat of Armed Forces (SCA), we integrated predictive maintenance and remote supervision systems to transmit temperature and refrigerating pressure alarms in order to prevent failures.
For the “Mistral” tent air conditioners tested in Djibouti by the French Army, we filed 2 patents: one on simplified access to maintenance and troubleshooting, the other on the orientation of the air intake duct.
THESE INNOVATIONS HAVE
BEEN TWICE REWARDED:
· 2015: the Aquitaine Industrial Design Trophy (TADI)
· 2017: the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Eco-Design Trophy.
In yet another instance regarding tent air conditioners, we designed and developed a very competitive model, the CTZ HR 4, in order to respond to the needs of NGOs and Peacekeeping Operations, whose tight budgets required air conditioners to be made available to them which, without derogating from their ability to operate in extreme conditions, were offered at much more attractive prices.
PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONER CMDZ5
This packaged unit, mounted on rails or fixed on a platform outside a shelter; is particularly effective at providing fresh air. It offers two ventilation speeds with a treated air flow rate of 750m3/h at high speed. This product has been designed to withstand extreme conditions. It is able to […]See the product
AIRPORT WALKWAY AIR CONDITIONER BORDEAUX-MÉRIGNAC
BACKGROUND Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport has seen an increase in the number of passengers carried since the beginning of 2018 and aims to offer its passengers ever more comfort. We therefore proposed to air-condition the boarding bridges to the aircraft, in which the temperature could reach up to +37°C.See the realization
PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONER CTZ MISTRAL
We are proud to introduce our new patented Portable Air Conditioner: the CTZ MISTRAL. This mobile air conditioner is specially designed to cool your tents, shelters and other industrial applications.See the product
AIR CONDITIONERS ON TRAILERS
The issue of mobility remains of primary importance to us. Being able to move our equipment in hostile, disaster-stricken areas on all types of ground and slopes is essential. That’s why our range of air conditioners is also available on trailers. From the small CTZ6 model to the most powerful […]See the product
CMVZ5 SHELTER AIR CONDITIONERFOR THE SYRACUSE III STATION
BACKGROUND When developing the SYRACUSE 3 Earth station, the DGA wanted to regulate the temperature in the communication shelter. In partnership with the systems integrator, we have designed and developed a specific shelter air conditioner to operate at extreme temperatures up to +55°C.See the realization
Over the years, our sales team has acquired extensive knowledge of international trade requirements:
financing of international import and export trade operations (in particular managing letters of credit),
foreign exchange risk management (invoicing in multiple currencies)
You can rely on us to ensure that your import arrives under the best conditions.
Based in France (Villenave d’Ornon) with a strong international presence, our equipment is used in nearly 70 countries.
