Union Industries

The Best of British


The refrigeration plants aren’t the greatest fan of summer at the best of times... but this heat makes them work hard for their living.

There are a number of clear benefits we have experienced since installing the first 3 doors at our Wrexham site almost 10 years ago.  I have bullet pointed them below.

• Diminution of snow and ice surrounding the door entrances.
• Significantly lowered damage repair costs vis-à-vis standard  
   insulated blade doors.
• Lower general maintenance costs.
• Energy payback.
• No mist / cold air fog on loading bays & reduction of energy 
  consumption due to the air conditioning units on the loading bay
  not running for so long a duration.

I am sure there are more if I put my mind to it but I think this gives you a number of significant reasons for us to continue in our use of your doors.

I would like to say a few words about Union Industries.

18 months ago we contacted Union Industries with regards purchasing a new high speed door.  Although we did find cheaper alternatives we went with Union Industries because from the word go they gave you confidence, not only in their products but with the way they conducted themselves.
From the initial phone call all the way through the planning, quoting and installation procedure every step was smooth and faultless, every person you speak to seems to care about the service and your requirements.

We were unfortunate enough to have a problem with the door (human error) Union Industries were able to react and rectify the issues in a very quick time, they even serviced the door while they were here.

All in all, our experience with Union Industries has been nothing other than a pleasure, we would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking about purchasing a high-speed door, people, products and after care all top notch.

Thank you for contacting me recently to see if we have any further requirements.

In 2004 we pondered for some time over the purchase of a Bulldoor from Union Industries because they were probably one of the highest priced doors on the market.  It was clear though that they were well designed and built and the electronic control system was so robust that we eventually signed up and had our first door installed.
After 6 years of faultless operation we installed our second door.

Both doors are still working perfectly today, some 14 years on and this is after we had one of the doors moved to another site in 2016.

We are a busy manufacturing site that could not operate with unreliable entry/exit points so I am pleased to say that we have never suffered operational delays due to Bulldoor failure.
This is a real credit to your product and a relief for me.

So, do I need anything else currently?  I'm afraid not, I am quite happy with my existing Bulldoors and have no new enquiries for you.  I will of course be in touch if our needs change.

I would like to take this opportunity to put in writing our findings with Union Industries RAM Door product.

As you know Casepak is a Recycling and Waste Management company in Leicester.  Due to our line of work, we have a high number of loads in and out every single day.  This means that we rely heavily on industrial fast acting doors on various large external openings to help satisfy envionmental conditions in and around the site.

Last year, we unfortunately needed to replace a high-speed door that had only been installed a few years ago when the site was built, this was due to, amongst other things, irreparable wind damage.  Although the current doors we had were a cheaper solution initially, we experienced tremendous issues with them including doors closing on or in between wagons, and high winds nearly destroying the doors.  We asked Union Industries to visit site to present their fast roller doors and we discussed with their Technical Engineer the benefits of their door versus the lower cost alternatives that are on the market, the quality, service and support available to us.  Initially we were put off by the high price of a Union Industries door, but after a whole life cycle cost analysis it became apparent that although the initial capital cost was greater, the whole life cost was not so disproportionate, taking this into consideration and the fact that we should experience less breakdowns, which would mean less of Casepaks technical resources being required, we decided to test their Ramdoor, replacing the fast fold-up type door we had on that bay.

Having used the 6m x 6m Ramdoor now since September 2017, we are immensely impressed.  The performance has been fantastic and it has easily withstood the high volume of traffic and the strong winds we've experienced over the past few months.  We knew in advance of our purchase that Union's Ramdoor is Certified to class 5 for wind resistance and the first door has certainly stood up to the test!  We have been so pleased we are now beginning a program to replace the remaining seven fast acting doors on site, one of which is an even larger door at 7m x 7m, and for this Union Industries have specified the Ramdoor 'Super', which we are confident will easily stand up to the task.

I would recommend these doors for anyone, and look forward to working with Union Industries on future products.
