Bespoke Folding Shutter Doors for Wigan-Based Cold-Rolled Steel Supplier

Alliance Door Engineering, a leading manufacturer and trade supplier of industrial doors and shutters, has designed bespoke folding shutter doors to secure a building and enhance the production line of a large cold-rolled steel supplier.

The Wigan-based company were initially approached by Shield Industrial, a West Yorkshire-based company that specialises in door maintenance, repairs, and new door installations. The project was to design two folding doors suitable for a loading area for pre-fabricated steel frames, used for modular buildings, at the manufacturing facility of The Hadley Group, in the West Midlands.

This particular project represented quite a challenge as a wide crane beam and conduit was required to protrude through the openings and out of the building so that materials can be transported down the monorail, then lowered by the crane, directly onto a vehicle.

Following the initial contact from Shield Industrial, Alliance got to work on designing a solution. 

The specific nature of the site required the doors to be bi-parting, with bespoke, hinged leading edges to ensure the required clear opening dimensions were maintained to allow the large material to pass through.

The works have ensured Hadley Group have a reliable and secure access and egress system which enhances their production and loading processes.

Commenting on the installation, Adam Shaw, managing director of Shield Industrial, said: 

“Following consultation with the client, we contacted Alliance’s experienced R&D department to enquire whether a solution could be found to the challenges presenting themselves with this project.

Several sketches, ideas and suggestions were sent back and forth, with the end result being an installation and end product which met with our customer’s requirements perfectly”.

After acquiring Profile Doors in 2007, Alliance Doors commenced manufacturing folding doors in-house, adding to their extensive industrial door and shutter product portfolio which is supplied to trade partners, the length and breadth of the UK and further afield.
