UK Group Company Industrial Door Engineering Limited has successfully tested a face fixed fire shutter for 4 hour integrity.
The test was held at the Warrington Fire Test Laboratories and the tested product incorporates a number of new designs and features which will make the product a cost effective option for customers.
Once the Reports and Assessments are completed in the next few weeks, the new product will be put into full manufacture.
The shutter will be the basis for the fire shutter range that will be marketed by all three UK Group Companies, IDE, Nassau Industrial Doors and Dover Roller Shutters.
UK Group Companies Nassau Industrial Doors and Industrial Door Engineering have formed a formidable partnership in delivering major works within the new £50m JCB Factory Development in Staffordshire, England.
Nassau were awarded an order for 18no. fast acting insulated roller shutter doors and 2no. Dynaco rapid roll doors from main contractor McLaren Construction.
The roller shutters, which were manufactured and installed by Industrial Door Engineering were approved by the project architects and deemed to be the most appropriate product for the type of operation JCB are planning for this new JCB Cab assembly production facility.
Nassau specialist electrical engineers are now wiring and commissioning the roller shutter doors and the rapid roll doors which are programmed to work via. Induction loop systems and incorporate all necessary safety features to prevent operational accidents.
UK Group Company Dover Roller Shutters are world renowned for their range of aluminium shutters for vehicles, ranging from high specification shutters for fire fighting vehicles, across to more basic shutters for box van body applications.
However, the market leading N35 aluminium shutter has a number of other situations where it becomes the ‘go to’ product.
Capital Kiosk provide a wide range of kiosks throughout the UK and one such application is for vending stalls at holiday seaside resorts.
As can be seen from the photographs, the Dover N35 shutters on the kiosk at Ilfracombe Pier have been enhanced with a number of impressive decals.
Another example of the wide range of uses for the Dover Roller Shutters products.
After many years of struggling with very old folding shutter doors on its main garage in Wrexham, Pats Coaches decided it was time for a facelift.
UK Group Company IDE, visited site and designed a complete new front façade with three roller shutters, one of which was over 10 metres wide, a steel hinged personal door with cladding overpanel, and internal steelwork modifications.
The project was completed over three days and the customer is highly delighted with the impressive result.
UK Group Company Dover Roller Shutters has achieved ISO 9001:2015 status for its Quality Management System.
The process commenced in late 2018 and with the hard work of the Dover Roller Shutters Management in conjunction with Chris Hughes from sister Company Industrial Door Engineering, the final part of the process was completed in February 2019.
Although many of the existing systems within the business were more than adequate, various new disciplines have been put in place and a number of efficiencies particularly in relation to production methods and traceability have already proved invaluable.
It is hoped that by achieving this award, it will allow the Company to forge new relationships with major truck building and van body building Companies both in the UK and overseas.
UK Group Company Industrial Door Engineering has recently completed a major improvement programme at Morrison’s Supermarkets Wakefield Distribution Centre.
The work involved the removal of badly damaged dock shelters and cladding from 12 loading bays.
This was followed by the repositioning of the existing dock levellers together with the installation of steel frameworks and dock bumpers. This work ensures that the delivery vehicles cannot damage the cladding in the future.
The final part of the contract involved fitting new cladding and dock shelters, and the re-positioning of the traffic light units.
The work had been scheduled for a six week block, but due to co-operation from the client and the allocation of additional manpower, the works were completed in three weeks, thus keeping site disruption to a minimum.
Morrison’s site surveyors are delighted with the work and will be considering similar works at their other warehouses at Wakefield.
William Morrison’s Supermarket, one of the leading Supermarket chains in the UK required a major overhaul to the loading bay at their Stockport Store which involved the removal of some large heavy duty industrial gates and fencing and the fitting of a new electrically operated roller shutter door.
UK Group Company Industrial Door Engineering (IDE) are one of Morrison’s key supply chain contractors and were tasked with carrying out the necessary works.
Co-ordination with site was crucial as the operation of the store could not afford to be disrupted.
IDE technical representative Bernie Mikolawjewski co-ordinated all the works which involved the utilisation of a mobile crane to dismantle the old gates and steelwork, and the IDE site engineers who had to cut up the old gates to enable them to be removed from site, as well as the installation of the new electrically operated powder-coated roller shutter. The whole contract was completed over a 48 hour period and was performed to the satisfaction of Morrison’s senior surveyor Peter Monaghan who has praised the works that were carried out without disruption to the customer.
UK Group Company Industrial Door Engineering has recently completed the latest fire station upgrade for Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service.
This time, the site was an unmanned fire station in the village of Bollington.
The old folding shutters were causing operational difficulties and have now been replaced with two automatic overhead sectional doors that are fitted with safety beams and safety edges and they also incorporate a traffic light warning system.
The installation also included the supply and fitting of side and overhead cladding so that the complete elevation matches the doors.
Although the project was carried out over three days, IDE ensured that the site was secure at all times.
