Hygiene & safety boosted
12 December 2012
Union Industries, the manufacturer of industrial rapid roll Hi-Speed Doors, has assisted Crown Food Europe with its ongoing commitment to hygiene and health & safety by installing another fast acting door at its manufac
The Leeds-based roller door specialist, which previously installed two Ramdoors in the loading bays at the facility, has installed its fast acting Bulldoor to support the factory's strict hygiene regulations and to enhance the overall safety of the site for pedestrians.
The rapid action of Union's roller door, which has an opening speed of 1.6m per second with automatic close, helps maintain the integrity of the building by preventing the ingress of dirt, vermin and weather conditions.
The 3.4m wide x 3.6m high Bulldoor, which has been installed in the Can/Coil Store doorway to improve the transport of goods and is utilised by forklift trucks only, has a bespoke designed safe pass system which locks the door in the closed position allowing pedestrians to pass in front of the door without the risk of being hit by a forklift.
In common with the other doors in the range, the Bulldoor also features Union's 'Crash-Out' damage protection facility, which ensures that the door remains operable if the heavy duty steel composite bottom beam is hit by a speeding vehicle.
