Turbo Fold Door roll-out at major UK distribution centre

UK Rapid Doors are delighted to have completed a recent project for one of the biggest supermarket chains in the UK.

Our team installed nine of our new design Turbo Fold Doors at WM Morrison’s distribution centre at Latimer Park in Kettering, Northamptonshire – all for our trade partner Andrew Peters.

A challenging external installation where all the all the doors were projected off vertical steels which were set 250mm from the cladding line, our team managed to complete the works within 5 days.

Morrisons requested back to back fixing arrangement to provide maximum width for their fleet of HGV vehicles, a feature that could only be accommodated with our new inboard motor design.

All doors were produced in the UK at our production facility in Birmingham, our innovative Turbo Fold Doors have been upgraded to offer the following features:

  • Guide projection depth has been reduced to prevent unwanted noise in windy conditions
  • Framework is designed in galvanised steel as standard
  • Powder coating to any RAL colour is available
  • Hood is now a continuous arrangement (no unsightly step out box for motor)
  • Safety upgraded from basic wireless safety edge and 1 single photo cell to a light curtain with 16 safety photo cells
  • Headroom has been reduced from 1000mm to 825mm
  • Feig Inverter system comes as standard
  • Turbo Fold door design has impacted the Installation time which has been reduced by 30% compared to the old-style design
  • Turbo Fold door design has streamlined production throughput and improved delivery period by a massive 25% compared to the old-style design
  • Guide sections have been increased from 150mm to 250mm to enhance the already impressive level 5 wind load certification
  • The product cost remains unchanged!
