Union Industries install refreshingly efficient doors at Swizzels

Union Industries has proved to be too tempting for Swizzels, the makers of Refreshers, Love Hearts and Parma Violets, which has had two of Union’s high-speed Bulldoors fitted at its Derbyshire warehouse.

The confectionery manufacturer, which was established in 1928, required the doors to help maintain its exacting hygiene standards by acting as a pest control measure when the doors are in operation.

Standing at 2.8m wide x 3.7m high and 2.8m wide x 3.0m high, the Bulldoors, which feature a Swizzels logo on the blades, are activated by radio control systems that are mounted onto the company’s forklift trucks.

Union’s Bulldoor, which opens at approximately 1.6m per second, is ideal for high use external openings and will also help reduce any environmental ingress caused by the elements.

The Bulldoor comes with free entry into Union’s Lifetime Warranty Scheme which was introduced several years ago. This cover, which is included as standard, not only provides an extensive guarantee but also includes service visits from Union’s highly trained technicians as required.

In common with the other doors in the range, the Bulldoor also features Union’s highly-regarded ‘Crash-Out’ and ‘Auto-Reset’ damage protection facility which ensures the door remains operable if the heavy duty steel composite bottom beam is hit by a vehicle.

Neil Irwin, Technical Sales Engineer at Union Industries, said: “The Bulldoor has been designed specifically for external openings that are subject to high levels of traffic, making it the perfect addition to Swizzels’ warehouse. It’s a durable door, which has earned itself an excellent reputation due to its reliability.”

Tony Bartley, Building Services Managerat Swizzels, said: “Maintaining excellent hygiene standards is of the upmost importance in the confectionary industry and Union’s high speed doors will help us achieve our targets during peaks times, when forklift trucks are coming in and out of the warehouse.”
