Union Industries 'preserves the heat' for Stelrad

A trio of installations by Union Industries has helped to support energy efficiency at the production facility of a world-leading radiator manufacturer.

Stelrad has benefited from the installation of six of Union Industries’ Bulldoors at its Mexborough, South Yorkshire, 17-acre site. The facility handles Stelrad’s UK radiators business and the co-ordination of the company’s advanced production and distribution operation.

Union Industries’ market-leading, bespoke high-speed roller doors help to prevent the severe drop of ambient temperature in buildings, especially in the winter months, which eliminates any potential impact on production environments.

The Leeds-based company’s Bulldoors are often regarded as the ‘reliable workhorse’ of rapid roll doors and have been known to perform more than 1.4million cycles per year, making it a popular choice across several industries. The Bulldoors feature specialist Crash-Out’ and ‘Auto-Reset’ damage protection facilities, and offers control outputs for options such as airlocks, traffic control systems and remote monitoring, in addition to temperature control for ambient and chilled environments.

Established in 1936, Stelrad has grown to become Britain’s number one radiator brand, operating from facilities in the UK and Europe. The company distributes more than 2.5m products each year from its Mexborough site on Stelrad’s four manufacturing lines.

"We're delighted with the Bulldoors installation in our Distribution facility here in Mexborough," says Warehouse & Distribution Manager Paul Schofield. "Their installation is part of a planned upgrade of our facilities and will help us to save energy and create a far safer working environment during the colder months of the year. The amount of MHE moving around on site within Production and the National Distribution Centre completing the daily workload is substantial and any help we can have to reduce the heat loss in the buildings will contribute significantly to the overall efficiency of our operation."

Union Industries has established itself as the UK’s leading manufacturer of bespoke warehousing and industrial solutions, working with a range of companies that operate across multiple sectors to help improve their logistics and reduce heat loss in distribution centres, warehouses, factories and storage facilities.

Robert Howe, Technical Sales Engineer at Union Industries, said: “We are proud of our rich heritage and reputation for delivering bespoke solutions to various industrial settings, which includes supporting organisations’ environmental policies. Stelrad is a world-leader in the manufacture of radiators and required a robust and resilient solution to further enhance the working environment for its staff, while preserving as much heat in its largescale building as possible.

“Our Bulldoors have remained a popular choice for a range of production facilities and industrial applications because of their toughness and bespoke features. Our entire range of high-speed roller doors are engineered and designed for long usage and high intensity operations, which are made specifically to meet each individual client’s requirements.

“Heat loss and energy efficiency can prove to be a major problem to companies such as Stelrad, which produce high volumes of quality products. We were delighted to support Stelrad’s working environment at its Mexborough facility with the installation of our Bulldoors.”
