Another returning customer to EFAFLEX who have been a client since the early 2000’s. They are the UK’s largest conveyor manufacturer, operating from a seven-acre site in Worcestershire with five decades of experience in their field.

Their metal fabrication facility is extremely busy with the flow of materials and machinery making many passes per day through the warehouse door.

This is a typical logistics scenario that we would service, where high volumes of machinery such as forklift trucks, artics and loading wagons need to operate safely and smoothly alongside the factory personnel. The risk of accident or incident needs to be mitigated, which is why EFAFLEX have become the product of choice for many logistics and warehouse facilities; combining speed, safety, and energy saving.

Here the high-speed door was externally mounted due to the constraints of the building.

As a high-volume area, the STR (high- speed roll-up door) was chosen for its price performance ratio, opening at speeds up to 2 metres per second and capable of up to 150,000 operating cycles per year. This door was designed to incorporate a viewing window for additional safety and provide the forklift truck drivers with line of sight. The door is activated via remote controls and features an aluminium skeleton for added strength and designed to withstand extreme wind and weather conditions.

The STR is ideal for this application and general material handling environments, where EFAFLEX products offer years of continued service, with minimal wear and extended periods between our maintenance visits.
