Union Industries delivers for global packaging leader Greif Flexibles

03 October 2019

A global leader in industrial packaging products and services has benefited from the installation of three of Union Industries’ bespoke high-speed roller doors.

Greif Flexibles’ manufacturing site in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, required a bespoke solution to reduce energy consumption by preventing heat loss and to provide segregation of the warehouse and production areas to ensure employee safety.

Additionally, their internal openings within the facility were subjected to high wind forces from the external doorway which required a robust high-speed door, specially designed for wind resistance.

Union Industries, the UK’s market-leading manufacturer of bespoke warehousing and industrial solutions, installed two of its Bulldoors and a Ramdoor at the facility, which is based at Dalton Airfield.

The high-speed doors prevent the severe drop of ambient temperature in the building, especially in the winter months, which eliminates any potential impact on the production environment.

Union Industries’ Bulldoor is often regarded as the ‘reliable workhorse’ of rapid roll doors and has 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.

The Ramdoor, an equally robust solution, is constructed using heavy duty materials and components that makes it suitable for most applications and is specially designed to achieve a Class 5 wind resistance capacity.

It also features Union Industries’ ‘Crash-Out' facility, as well as a high quality Windbar systems, counterweight assisted opening, and a heavy duty ‘Ramhide’ door blade.

Greif Flexibles produces a wide range of speciality packaging products, including steel, plastic and fibre drums, intermediate bulk containers, reconditioned containers, flexible products, containerboard, uncoated recycled paperboard and coated recycled paperboard, tubes and cores.

It also manufactures packaging accessories and provides filling, packaging and other services for multiple industries.

Nigel Booth, Business Operations Director, Greif Flexibles, said: “Following extensive research of the industrial door market, Union Industries stood out as the best supplier of the product, which would meet our requirements.

"Union’s doors are very effective in supporting our drive for high levels of productivity and operational efficiencies.”

Robert Howe, Technical Sales Engineer at Union Industries, said: “Our high-speed roller doors are growing in popularity and are renowned for their ‘workhorse’ nature within many production facilities, as they have been specifically engineered and designed for long usage and high intensity operations.

"We are delighted to have provided the team at Greif Flexibles with a durable and robust solution, which will also support its environmental policy.

“The installation of the Bulldoors and Ramdoor was conducted in a timely and efficient manner, with minimal disruption to Greif Flexibles’ operations, and we look forward to working with the global leader again in the future.”
