Essex Pharmaceutical - Premium High Speed Door Case Study

Location: Romford, Essex
Sector: Pharmaceutical
Products Used: SRT- Premium

Problem Solved:

Fast action

Who is the client?

This new customer to EFAFLEX specialise within the pharmaceutical industry, with a niche focus on the Central Nervous System, where they add value through the supply chain via medicines in hospital and emergency situations.

As with all pharma and cleanroom customers, hygiene, cleanliness, and reliability are vital.

This client is recognised as a key supplier to the NHS and private hospital sector with their manufacturing facility based in Essex, and customer reach rapidly expanding in Europe and China.

What fast action industrial doors did they choose?

After completing a detailed site survey to understand the niche needs of the client, the SRT-Premium high-speed doors were recommended due to the combination of their speed, reliability, and durability.

This roll up door option offers exceptional price performance ratio but is way more durable than roller shutter alternatives. It is a great all rounder that delivers on price, performance, and aesthetics.

In addition, the activation method (means of opening and closing the door), was tailored to suit the site’s specific requirements.

What benefits will this fast action door deliver?

The SRT Premium are ideal for use where reliability, and performance are key. Used an as interior door, they are capable of up to 150,000 operating cycles per year and open at a speed of up to 2.0 m / s.

As the product needed to be fit for heavy usage, durability was vital in order to minimise any costly down times or interruptions to manufacturing.

What are the key benefits of this specific door?

Offering a full support package was high on the list of essentials here. Not only designing, and installing the doors, but also the ongoing service and maintenance to ensure its long life.

You’ll notice ‘see through’ vision panels that not only allow light, but also deliver a clear line of sight for the high number of users to minimise the risk of incidents.

Were there any specific requirements from this project?

This was a project that is typical within EFAFLEX; a client requiring a product where reliability and performance deliver. The doors were supplied in a blue fabric with colour options available for clients should they wish to co-ordinate with brand aesthetics.
