July has seen the completion of a major door upgrade at the Morrison’s Distribution Centre in Northwich, Cheshire, UK by Group Company Industrial Door Engineering.
The project involved the installation of 16no. fast acting rapid roll doors at various locations throughout the site, including the Goods Inwards, Produce, and Recycling Departments.
The doors operate on a series of inductive loops that were installed by IDE using ‘no dust’ low noise specialist equipment that was necessary due to the food factory environment.
The doors will not only improve the efficiency of the distribution procedures on the site but will also form part of the physical barriers that prevent vermin and pest access into the buildings.
The building work at Industrial Door Engineering in Northwich, U.K. is starting to advance now.
Following last year’s investment in a new powder-coating plant and upgraded gas supply, this year sees a factory extension of 7,000 sq. ft, an office expansion of 800sq.ft and a major upgrade of the electricity supply that feeds the I.D.E. building.
This latest phase of work commenced in June and is scheduled to be completed during September.
The new Reception Area and Factory Mess Room have already been finished.
UK Group Company, Industrial Door Engineering has completed the next phase of re-development work at the Airbus UK site in Broughton, Chester.
The project, known as Hanger 97, involved the construction of a new warehouse which included the manufacture and installation of 4no. electrically operated insulated roller shutter doors with vision sections and powder-coated finish.
The project, which was carried out in conjunction with Construction Company Hollingsworth & Ellery also included the installation of 3no. high security steel hinged doors.
Group company – Dover Vanguard recently installed the first N35 anodised roller shutters on a refurbished fire truck for the Polish Military
Sales manager Garry Cannon had been in discussions with Lock Systems of Poland and also visited their premises to instruct on fitting the shutters and to discuss further projects.
When Warrington based Company Colas faced a dilemma with a faulty 30 year old folding shutter door that measured over 12 metres in width, they approached AMGroup Company Industrial Door Engineering to come up with a solution.
The answer was to dismantle the existing folding shutter, install supporting steelwork and fit a solid insulated panel wall on one half of the door opening, and supply and fit an electrically operated roller shutter door coupled with a fabric rapid roll door in the other half of the doorway.
This has provided Colas with a system that is efficient both from an operational point of view and also for heat cost savings benefits.
Group company, Dover Vanguard have won a contract to supply Advanced Handling with (56) powder coated RAL 5011 Blue – 1EA roller shutters for the Eurostar Terminal.
Two shutters will be fitted to each of the luggage trolleys used on station platforms and around the Eurostar facility.
Sales manager, Garry Cannon, met with the client’s design team in Peterborough to devise a solution that suited the needs of the customer.
So far, Dover Vanguard have supplied 40 shutters from the contract with the remainder due for despatch within the next month.
F.P.McCann is the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of precast concrete solutions. It is currently redeveloping two of its sites, at Byley, Cheshire and Grantham, Lincolnshire.
Both sites require a number of large roller shutter doors and AMGroup Company Industrial Door Engineering has secured the order for 11no. large electrically operated roller shutters doors at the sites.
The doors range from 6m wide x 6m high up to 8m wide and 6m high.
This is the first project that I.D.E. will be undertaking for the Northern Ireland based firm, but F.P.McCann were not just looking for a reputable manufacturer of industrial doors, but also a company that they could call upon to provide emergency repair and service should the need arise, something that is second nature to I.D.E.
UK based Group Company Industrial Door Engineering has won the contract for the manufacture and installation of 45no. roller shutters for the £4.5m redevelopment of the People’s Market in Wrexham, North Wales.
The project will transform the Wrexham’s Peoples Market into a joint arts and market centre. Wynne Construction are the main contractors and the refurbishment will include two galleries, one of which will be to national standards.
The re-vamped centre will also boast an educational area, food court and market stalls.
