We, at Stanair, believe that having the right door for your premises’ needs is essential to help your business’ processes run at peak efficiency. This was certainly the case for one of our customers, BI Engineering in Wellingborough.
For over 38 years, BI Engineering have designed, developed, manufactured and refurbished a diverse range of systems and components for such high-profile clients as the Ministry of Defence, international defence vehicle and equipment manufacturers and the UK coach, truck and bus industry.
Paul, Purchasing Manager, at BI Engineering, reached out to our expert surveyors after identifying certain challenges caused by the existing roller shutter door on their warehouse loading area. Due to the high volume of traffic using the warehouse door, it was often left open for long periods of time. This inevitably led to heat loss as well as increased security risks.
Stanair’s surveyors recommended a Rapid Action Door. This door is fitted with sensors which automatically activate when a vehicle, such as a forklift, approaches, to open the door and closes again once it is safely through thus addressing the issues raised. The speed and automation therefore help to reduce heat loss as well as improving security. “Stanair’s Surveyors were great at offering their expert advice and gave us a door to fit our exact needs here at the warehouse,” said Paul, “we’re really pleased with the end product and the warehouse staff are particularly pleased that the door no longer has to stay open, especially through these colder months!”
