First Bus – Ram-Fold Sliding Power Door
Profile doors, acquired by Alliance Door Engineering Ltd in 2007, have been installing their in house made range of Folding Shutter Doors for over 25 years, specialising in the larger applications which require cost effective and high security solutions.
Alliance were the preferred contractor for the Bury Depot, having recently completed a full refurbishment of the folding shutter doors on the Oldham depot, in conjunction with a redevelopment of the existing site. Having successfully completed the works at Oldham, Alliance was invited to tender for the full replacement of the existing access and egress doors at Bury. Using our wealth of mechanical and electrical experience, we put together a package that suited the requirements of First Bus and bettered our competitors.
Following the initial contact from First Bus, the project was managed by our very own Managing Director John Hare, who not only quoted the work, but surveyed, specified electrical requirements and liaised with the site and the Senior Building Surveyor. The specific nature of the site required the doors to be bi-parting, driven by motors on both sides which were linked together to operate simultaneously, induction loops to detect traffic and 2.5M light curtains fitted in front and behind the doors to detect any possible entrapment.
The works have now ensured First Bus have a reliable and secure access and egress system, fully compliant with the latest health and safety legislation enabling them to meet the public demands for a punctual transport system.
