Whitworth Bros Wind Resistant Rapid Roll Door
When leading flour miller, Whitworth Bros. Ltd, required new fast action doors as part of a refurbishment and expansion of their Whitley Bridge complex they knew where to turn. Alliance Door’s ‘Cheetah’ rapid roll door is Class 5 wind resistant, making it the ideal choice for external applications.
Two new doors were recently installed on the site, with actuation and safety devices configured to suit the openings. With each door being subject to a high level of vehicular activity, radar movement sensors are utilised to detect approaching fork lift trucks, with the doors closing on an automatic timed return command.
The door features a PVC curtain, which in this instance was supplied in yellow to match Whitworth Bros.’ corporate image.
Manufactured inhouse, and supplied with a fast lead time, the Cheetah rapid roll door is a robust and energy saving product specifically designed for applications where speed, frequency of use and durability are key requirements. A range of contactless actuation device options are also available.
Business Development Manager Tim Stuart commented: “The Cheetah door design is tried and tested in the market place, with the door being supplied to the trade for over a decade. It’s proven to not only provide a robust solution but also simple and safe means of operation for the user. However, we know that occasionally, due to vehicular damage etc. accidents can happen, and because we manufacture the door in our factory here in Wigan, we have replacement parts readily available to ensure door downtime is kept to a minimum”.
