Location: Shropshire
Sector: Manufacturing
Products Used: STT High – speed turbo doors

Problem Solved:


Who is the client?

This client is based near to our Telford facility in Shropshire. They are a new customer to EFAFLEX UK, but already familiar with the principles of high-speed doors to reduce and conserve energy costs.

The client specialise in manufacturing rainwater goods and celebrate over 40 years in business.

What fast action industrial doors did they choose?

Having completed a detailed site survey of their new 200,000sq ft site in January 2024 to fully appreciate the existing problems the client had encountered, our Business Development Manager for the region recommended EFA-STT® high-speed turbo doors.

Reliability and long service life were key criteria for this customer. They had experienced repeated problems with their roller shutter doors, and needed a manufacturer that could supply quality products with a reliable service.

What benefits will this fast action door deliver?

The EFAFLEX spiral door was originally designed over 30 years ago when it set the benchmark for high-speed doors. Decades later and the EFAFLEX speed and quality remain unrivalled, with the EFA-STT® capable of opening speeds of up to 3 m/s and closing at 1 m/s.

Easily capable of 200,000 operating cycles per year, it is a true work horse that delivers on speed and performance.

What are the key benefits of this specific door?

Reliability! The STT is super-fast, super strong, and super-efficient. The door blades are robust and yet virtually transparent to allow daylight to flood the work environment as well as enabling a clear line of sight for increased user safety.

Were there any specific requirements from this project?

The client was frustrated with previous roller shutter doors. Specifically, they needed alternatives that would deliver on speed, and performance, which the EFAFLEX team were easily able to achieve.
