Reducing heat loss for Dunns of Long Sutton

Having previously supplied Dunns with 2 large Turboroll model 08 doors, they came back to Eastern Doors once more when they had a further requirement to reduce heat loss in 2 more buildings and also to help them achieve their BRC status for supplying of food products. 5 doors were installed in what can only be described as a windy location even on a nice day. The 5.5m wide x 5m high doors were installed in 1 week meaning little disruption was caused to their production schedule.

Supplying Artex (Saint Gobain) with new Turboroll high speed doors

Having been a valued customer of ours for a few years now we were delighted when we were given the opportunity to supply Artex with 4 new Turboroll high speed doors. The scope of the project was to reduce heat loss in the main picking area which meant installing secondary steel work behind 2 existing doors to create airlocks and also installing steelwork to a tunnel area to create an airlock from the warehouse to the picking area. Usually this would be a straightforward project but the need to sync the doors to an existing traffic light system that we installed for Artex in the past made it a lot more complicated as there is integration with doors, pedestrians and forklifts. The final part of the jigsaw was to provide a door that would allow an escape route if someone was trapped in the tunnel, this was achieved by installing a Turboroll 25 with counterbalance and powered brake. This would allow anyone within the tunnel to get out in the event of a power failure.
