Fully secure

21 February 2019

When a shoemaker took over a new factory it presented plenty of new opportunities for the business, but it was important to ensure that security was high.

The premises had an old style roller shutter in place, but there were some issues with keeping the building warm. After enlisting the help of its Surveyors, a new roller shutter was recommended with additional insulation.

Stanair explains: “Made of a strong galvanised steel curtain, our roller shutters provide optimal safety for a premises, along with ease of use for those in the building during opening hours. The insulation design to the roller shutter also means that heat is kept in and the cold is kept out, making for a warmer and happier workforce.”

Stanair’s engineers removed the previous door and installed a fully secure new roller shutter in time for the factory’s grand opening.

“Opening up our new factory has been very exciting for us, and also presented lots of challenges,” said Matthew Allen of Foster & Son. “To have Stanair provide the door solution for us so efficiently has helped us overcome one of those challenges – they’ve been great to work with.”
