Union Industries, the UK market leading 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 plant in Wisbech.
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.
Crown Holdings, Inc. is a leading supplier of metal packaging products to consumer goods companies around the world. CROWN Food Europe, with an annual turnover of $2 billion, is the largest business in the European Division of the company. The factory at Wisbech is a manufacturing and distribution facility.
The rapid action of Union’s roller door, which has an opening speed of 1.6 metres 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 highly-regarded ‘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. This proven system, which has been a central attribute of Union’s doors for over 20 years, drastically reduces repair costs and guarantees minimal down-time if the door is impacted by traffic such as forklift trucks.
Tim Cannon, Technical Services Manager from CROWN Food Europe said: “We have been extremely impressed by the quality, efficiency and reliability of Union’s Ramdoors fitted in 2011, hence the recent addition of the Bulldoor to our site. We are really pleased with the newest installation and its contribution to our strict hygiene and safety standards.”
Paul Chable, Sales Engineer at Union Industries said: “Our clients have all kinds of requirements and issues, which our fast acting doors can address. This recent installation shows yet another exceptional example of service by Union Industries, which has helped to meet the hygiene and health and safety requirements of a globally accredited organisation.”
