Union Industries, the UK market leading manufacturer of industrial rapid roll High Speed Doors, has replaced a problematic high speed door with a bespoke Bulldoor.

The Leeds-based roller door specialist has completed a second installation of a Union door for a customer who already has a door that has completed over a million cycles. This bespoke installation of a Bulldoor and a pedestrian door at Schneider Electric’s site in Bagillt, Flintshire, allows the fleet traffic and pedestrians to enter and exit the facility with no risk to safety.

Schneider Electric is a global specialist in energy management with operations in more than 100 countries. The company offers integrated solutions across multiple markets, including building automation, industrial processes and energy and infrastructure. Schneider Electric’s focus is about making energy safe, reliable and efficient and its solutions can achieve up to 30% of energy savings.

The Bulldoor was installed to replace a defective high speed door that required a large investment to rectify its faults. The Bulldoor installation involved the reduction of the original opening from 5.6m x 5m to 4m x 4m and the separate installation of a pedestrian door to one side. The 1.6m per second operating speed at which the Bulldoor opens, with automatic closure, helps prevent heat loss to ensure temperature fluctuation is kept to an absolute minimum and energy is saved.

In common with the other doors in the range, the Bulldoor also feature 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 vehicle.

Kevin Lambert, Health, Safety, Environment & FM Co-ordinator from Schneider Electric said: “We are impressed with the quality and efficiency of the Bulldoor. Several individuals have commented on the excellent standard of finish, both aesthetically and mechanically. We were also very pleased with the professional approach and work ethic of the installation team.”

Alan Hirst, Sales Director, Union Industries, said “Our industrial fast acting doors have gained an outstanding reputation in a range of multi-purpose manufacturing and distribution environments. This second installation of a Union door is a testament to the quality of service by Unions Industries.”
