Union Industries has demonstrated the collaborative approach it delivers for the specification and installation of its high-speed roller doors with a project for Recticel Insulation. The construction insulation materials manufacturer engaged with Union Industries as part of a lengthy and detailed specification programme to replace three existing roller doors fitted within an extension to its factory in Stoke. These doors were proving costly to run, particularly because of forklift truck damage, which impacted productivity and caused heat loss in the warehouse. This was made worse by the doors being out of operation for long periods when deliveries of replacement parts were delayed.
