Stanair are proud to have assisted B Stone, an expert supplier of Granite, Marble and Ceramic slabs to trade customers throughout mainland UK and Scotland. Although their parent company (BMB) is based in Belgium, we helped their warehouse in Northampton with their broken roller shutter door.
This warehouse houses natural stone materials and needs a large roller shutter to allow the unloading and loading of their raw materials. Therefore, when their barrel snapped in the middle, due to the age and weight of the door, they called on us to help. Unfortunately, it was deemed inoperable for safety reasons and the company asked us to install a brand new electrically operated roller shutter.
Whilst waiting to have the door replaced, they realised just how essential a fully functioning roller shutter is to not just their security but their productivity. The company resorted to having to unload the very heavy stone slabs through another entrance which meant they could not use their internal crane – clearly not ideal!
Steve, site manager, said, ‘It was a difficult time and definitely a relief when Stanair was able to install our new door. We never realised just how much we rely on it every day.’
Our engineers installed the custom-made door on site as soon as we were able. Despite the size and width of the door, 6.3m wide and 6.3m high, we managed to complete the job on the agreed date. We are very proud of the work achieved by the engineers, Harry and Bradley, and also that we were able to have such a positive effect on a local business.
