Yorkshire Water Security Shutters

Yorkshire Water Security Shutters

Hart Door Systems Ltd

Hart Door Systems has worked with a number of UK water companies to improve site security and efficiency. In particular the need to secure remote and often unstaffed but vitally important sites. Water sites have particular needs which require reliable and secure doors and the engineering expertise that Hart offer.The challenge This Yorkshire Water had 3 existing un-secure horizontal doors. These manual operation doors had fallen into disrepair and presented a security risk. Automatic doors were required to provide efficiency and security. The solution The Hart solution was to install its roller shutters, fitted in a customised way to suit the environment and to ensure security, ease of installation and minimum disruption. One of the things Hart has significant experience in is fitting doors that add security features but without the need for additional structural works. Disruption was further minimised by working in collaboration with the main construction contractor, scheduling the work to fit in with not only the day to day operations, but other work happening concurrently.Because of Hart’s experience on sites such, existing vital operations were worked around – which continued during the removal of the old doors and installation of the new. The success Several more SR rated doors are planned at the same site, so that the company can replicate the success and the improved security that has been provided.Hart has gained invaluable experience working with various water companies installing high specification SR rated security shutters. These doors meet an established set of standards to prevent unauthorised access and have been tested and shown to minimise the threat of certain intruder attacks.For those sites that need constant access by people and / or traffic, the Speedor brand of doors can provide additional high speed operation. Speedor and SR doors can be used in combination to give complete flexibility and the best of both worlds.

Cocktail Hour Continues Amid Lockdown, with a SeceuroShield 150 Aluminium Roller Shutter

SWS UK

The closure of pubs, bars and restaurants throughout both regional and national lockdowns in 2020 has resulted in the Great British public becoming increasingly creative with the space in their gardens and homes. From gyms in the garage, to offices under the stairs or bars in the garden there are lots of ways homeowners have been turning their homes into multi-functional spaces. In this case-study our distributor Freelance Entry Solutions Ltd were able to assist their customer in completing a stylish, bespoke bar in the garden of their Salisbury home. The Customer: Despite the national closure of pubs and bars, this homeowner was still enjoying their favourite tipple with family and (when restrictions allowed) friends, thanks to the constructions of this sophisticated bar, named Plumm’s Place in their own back garden! The only thing missing was a method of closing off the bar at night time or when not in use. The Requirements With the bar already built, the customer was looking for a solution that would shield the inside from the varied British weather as well as keeping out curious animals from neighbouring properties. Whilst not a primary concern, the bar housed a commercial-sized drinks chiller and fully stocked optics, so security was also a consideration when choosing a product. The Solution Considering all the customer’s requirements, Freelance Entry Solutions advised their customer that our SeceuroShield 150/T aluminium roller shutter, with its lightweight profile and extensive choice of finishes would be an ideal solution. The customer opted for effortless, electric operation on both shutters with Freelance installing separate switches, enabling independent control of each unit. The chosen anthracite finish perfectly matched existing fixtures within the bar and garden, and provided the stylish, unobtrusive look the homeowner was keen to achieve. The Outcome Following the straightforward installation by Freelance Entry Solutions, the homeowner expressed their delight with the finished result and are pleased to be the proud owners of a garden bar that will remain dry and secure no matter the season. The SeceuroShield 150/T SeceuroShield 150/T is a lightweight aluminium shutter with a CFC-free foam-filled slat, available in a choice of 20 attractive colour finishes. Boasting effective heat and sound insulation, SeceuroShield 150/T is also ideal for providing flexible shading, light-control and blackout.
