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!

Business Infrastructure Manager - Casepak

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.

Also, the aftersales service we get is second to none with the lifetime warranty which enables you to plan your maintenance/breakdown with one yearly payment and a very rapid response time thrown in for good measure.

Thanks Union.

We have had issues with some contractors on site in the past but if they all turned up to site with the same work ethic as your engineers did I would be very happy.
Also I would just like to say that your after care team is also a pleasure to work with.

Manufacturing

Union Industries were ultimately selected as the installation vendor for several high speed doors, all works being completed to the highest standard, and with little follow up works necessary, NSK’s operations were able to continue uninterrupted.

We are happy to recommend Union Industries as a company capable of meeting our exacting standards for both installation works and servicing particularly with their Life Time Warranty.

The quality of the doors has been proven over the last 2 ½ years as they have given us no problems at all, in fact the only callouts we have had with U.I. was as a result of some damage caused by a careless forklift driver and a problem with a remote control, on both occasions the service has been very quick and the problem has been sorted without any fuss.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the doors and U.I. as a company as all my experience with them has been positive.

We had our first door installed on site on 20th May 1994 and over the years there have been nine doors installed in total both Ram and Bull doors.

The reliability and build quality of the doors are very good, as is the service levels from Union Industries.

Facilities Manager - Cambridge University Press

While there were many other doors available what sold it for us was that they were local, made their own doors, and the reference sites (large supermarkets) had had no problem with the doors.

From that first order of 5 Matadoors, 1 Bulldoor and a Picadoor, we now have an estate of 17 UI doors.

Purchasing Director - Fragrance Oils (International) Limited

We have had no problems with UI doors and more importantly the maintenance guys turn up when they say they will, and do a great job.

When asked by customers or visitors, we always suggest that they take a look at UI doors.

We have worked with Union Industries for at least the last 20 years and have been supplied with over six high-speed doors of various designs.
The doors we have are used in high volume traffic areas and externally in a coastal area with severe wind and weather conditions. Some are interlocked to automation and heating systems.

During their lifetime, they have undertaken millions of cycles with very few issues, are still going strong and with regular cleaning of the blades can look as good as when they were first installed.

Union Industries doors are our preferred option, they are not the cheapest on the market, however we have learned that choosing cheaper doors in the past has led to significant repair costs and parts replacement, which has far exceeded the cost difference in the initial purchase prices.
Looking at this as a case study, we would not have chosen the cheaper option but stayed with what we knew and was proven to be the best.

Health & Safety, Maintenance Manager - Robert McBride Ltd

For us in a high demand industry reliability is essential and we cannot afford for doors to be unreliable, broken or switched off in the open position awaiting repair.
One of the biggest bonuses for us is that the response of their engineering and service department is the best; furthermore, the standard of Health & Safety of their engineers when working on site meets the high standards that we require.

Briefly, buy cheap buy twice. Value is based on quality and the ability of the equipment to be reliable and stand the test of time.

Whenever we have needed support or advice Union Industries have been extremely helpful and their engineers have an excellent knowledge which gives great confidence when they service our doors.

Overall even though these are not the cheapest doors on the market the value for money is, in my opinion, exceptional.

Maintenance Team Leader - Recticel Midlands Ltd

As I said earlier my reason for choosing Union Industries was the quality of the product it looked exceptional in all the videos I had seen and looking at the product in our factory I can see I have made the correct choice, the build quality of these doors is by any engineers standards very impressive.

This weekend saw the fifth union door installed on site, all the installations have been carried out safely and professionally, the three teams that have attended site have been a credit to Union Industries.

Several other things also helped - the main one being the parts made on site, meaning I will not wait for spares as they will be accessible for immediate delivery, also the helpline that Union offers to engineers in resolving problems not needing an engineer to be called out.

Logistics & Warehousing

open speech marks

As a result of these doors being fitted we have found that the warehouse is now a more workable temperature to be in, which in turn is a more comfortable environment and conditions for all staff working in the warehouse. There are also cost efficiencies to gain from as we have experienced for quite some time now.

There are a number of clear benefits we have experienced since installing the first 3 doors at our Wrexham site almost 10 years ago. I have bullet pointed them below.
• Diminution of snow and ice surrounding the door entrances.

Group Engineer - Norish Cold Storage

• Significantly lowered damage repair costs vis-a-vis standard insulated blade doors.
• Lower general maintenance costs.

Group Engineer - Norish Cold Storage

• I am certain there will be an energy payback although we haven’t measured this. However the diminution of the snow and ice at the door entrances indicates this to be a benefit.

Group Engineer - Norish Cold Storage

• No mist / cold air fog on loading bays & reduction of energy consumption due to the air conditioning units on the loading bay not running for so long a duration.
