Union Industries Recovers First Class Solution for
nion Industries is celebrating
a new contract with Casepak
and has installed a Ramdoor
at its Materials Recycling Facility
based in Leicester.
The recycling and waste management
company needed a robust, High-Speed
Roller Door to replace the company’s
current installation, which wasn’t up to
the high volume of traffic and constant
battering from high winds.
After visiting a local site to see Ramdoors in operation, the company was
impressed with its strong qualities and
placed an order with Union Industries.
Casepak selected a 6m x 6m Ramdoor,
specially designed to achieve a Class 5
wind resistance capacity, which was
fitted with three internal and two external heavy-duty travelling Windbars to
allow the door to work even under the
most extreme windy conditions.
The Ramdoor also comes with standard
features including a 'Crash-Out' facility,
counterweight assisted opening, heavy
duty Ramhide door blade and free-entry
into the company’s Lifetime Warranty
scheme. Casepak’s door was also
specified with multiple safety features,
comprising an electronic safety edge
along the bottom beam, light grid curtains in the side guides, and also photoelectric safety cells to ensure the door
cannot close if traffic is parked within
the opening.
Casepak Materials Recycling Facility
(MRF) handles all of your household
recycling materials including paper,
card, plastics, TetraPaks, foil, glass,
steel, drink cans and more, for clients
across the UK. The Casepak MRF
works in partnership with the local authorities and commercial organisations
worldwide, and recovers at least 95% of
materials processed, which outputs are
then resupplied to a range of reprocessors.
Lee Bradbury, Operations and Maintenance Manager at Casepak said, “We
first saw an example of one of Union’s
doors in an airport, which clearly has
extreme wind conditions, and it prompted us to make an enquiry. Although the
quote for the Ramdoor was far more
than we had invested in our doors previously, the benefits of Union’s Lifetime
Warranty scheme outweighed the costs
of repairing and maintaining our previous door.”
Alan Hirst, Sales Director at Union Industries added, “It’s always exciting to
win new business, especially when it
comes with the potential of another loyal
customer. Windy conditions can often
cause major problems for large doors
on factories and warehouses, so they
need durable, sturdy solutions in place.
Our doors, particularly the Ramdoor
from our range, certainly have those
characteristics and that, combined with
Union Industries being one of only a few
suppliers of doors with a Class 5 windspeed rating in the country, reinforces
our position at the forefront of the Rapid
Roll Door market.”
