Union Industries

The Best of British


I would like to take this opportunity to put in writing our findings with Union Industries RAM Door product.

As you know Casepak is a Recycling and Waste Management company in Leicester.  Due to our line of work, we have a high number of loads in and out every single day.  This means that we rely heavily on industrial fast acting doors on various large external openings to help satisfy envionmental conditions in and around the site.

Last year, we unfortunately needed to replace a high-speed door that had only been installed a few years ago when the site was built, this was due to, amongst other things, irreparable wind damage.  Although the current doors we had were a cheaper solution initially, we experienced tremendous issues with them including doors closing on or in between wagons, and high winds nearly destroying the doors.  We asked Union Industries to visit site to present their fast roller doors and we discussed with their Technical Engineer the benefits of their door versus the lower cost alternatives that are on the market, the quality, service and support available to us.  Initially we were put off by the high price of a Union Industries door, but after a whole life cycle cost analysis it became apparent that although the initial capital cost was greater, the whole life cost was not so disproportionate, taking this into consideration and the fact that we should experience less breakdowns, which would mean less of Casepaks technical resources being required, we decided to test their Ramdoor, replacing the fast fold-up type door we had on that bay.

Having used the 6m x 6m Ramdoor now since September 2017, we are immensely impressed.  The performance has been fantastic and it has easily withstood the high volume of traffic and the strong winds we've experienced over the past few months.  We knew in advance of our purchase that Union's Ramdoor is Certified to class 5 for wind resistance and the first door has certainly stood up to the test!  We have been so pleased we are now beginning a program to replace the remaining seven fast acting doors on site, one of which is an even larger door at 7m x 7m, and for this Union Industries have specified the Ramdoor 'Super', which we are confident will easily stand up to the task.

I would recommend these doors for anyone, and look forward to working with Union Industries on future products.
