The Summer Issue of Door Industry Journal is available online now!

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Summer 2022 issue of Door Industry Journal, the Voice of the UK Door and Gate Industry.

Summer’s here and I’m sure you’re looking forward to some well-deserved downtime. I certainly am, especially after the near 40C temperatures that accompanied our final preparations for this issue!

It’s certainly been a challenging year so far, but despite the war in Ukraine and the soaring price of petrol, gas and electricity, our industry is holding its own.

However, for one big player in the garage door sector, JD UK, the war has led to a change of sectional door suppliers - from Alutech, a Belarusian company, to Polish firm Wisniowski (pronounced vish – noff – ski).

This was necessary due to punitive sanctions and 35% tariffs being placed on goods from Russia and Belarus. Amazingly, the change of suppliers was achieved in just under 4 months including modifying some of the products to be UK compatible – no mean feat!

You can read all about this in our lead story on page six and other articles later in the magazine.

A few more highlights in this issue:

IN2 Access - is expanding the reseller network for its popular ExpertSystem safety edge kits (page 10)

Hormann UK - is improving both its service to clients and its social and environmental initiatives (page 28) and (page 34)

A new range - of ‘timber’ garage doors from Fort aren’t all that they seem (page 58)

Garador - uses Durabelt technology in new scratch-resistant GaraRoll range (page 74)

SWS UK - reports a strong performance for its range of industrial and commercial shutters (page 78)

Comlink - introduces future-proof next generation hardware (page 97)

There’s plenty more inside - so, whether it’s a sun lounger by the pool or a deckchair in the garden that’s calling you, I hope you enjoy this latest edition of your DIJ.

I’ll be back with you in a few months’ time for our winter issue.
