Jewers Sliding-Folding Doors replace Roller Shutters Qatari Sewage Treatment Works

The installation of two sets of large Osprey sliding-folding doors completes the upgrade of the pumping station building, an integral part of the sewerage treatment works which services the regions of Doha and Rayyan in Qatar.

Ashgal, the public works authority for Qatar, commissioned Jewers Doors’ local reseller Rumaillah Warehouse Equipment to supply and install the doors, which are a far more robust system than the original roller shutters, which had suffered damage and regularly failed due to the high winds and other climatic factors experienced in Qatar. 

Access to the front and back of the building is via two sets of 5 metre wide by 5 metre high doors, which can accommodate even the tallest of road vehicles without compromising headroom. Each door is configured in 6 leaves sliding and folding to one side and clear of the opening to provide a full clearance for traffic. 

 Each door is electrically operated via a variable speed drive motor controlled by a fully programmable digital control panel incorporating lid mounted push buttons. For safety, each door is fitted with optical safety edges and presence detections systems to protect users during door operation.

Doors are fully sealed against the harsh Qatar environment with weathertight EPDM seals to all edges, and each door panel incorporates a generous 400mm x 1200mm double glazed toughened glass vision panel in a thermally broken aluminium frame to provide visibility and light through the closed door. 

 Door leaves are fully insulated with dense 50mm polyurethane and are finished with a light grey powder coating on the outside and an internal white Plastisol lining, which combine to virtually eliminate the heat from the sun transmitting through the door, whilst providing a long-lasting durable finish.

Jewers’ Regional Sales Manager; Ben Pritchard commented

“Jewers Doors have now been approved for installation by many government agencies in the Middle East. Not only do our doors meet the high standards specified for government installations, but the current exchange rate means we offer even better value. With our office in Dubai and locally based installers in each GCC country, Jewers are ideally placed to provide an excellent service throughout the Middle East.”
