Union Industries, the UK manufacturer of bespoke industrial doors, has assisted Deep Sea Electronics with improving access and traffic flow through the installation of its High Speed Matadoor.

The robust high-speed door has been installed in-between the company’s warehouse and production area in Hunmanby, North Yorkshire, and completes a significant on-site investment program. The Matadoor replaces an existing sectional door, which slowed access between the warehouse & production areas due to the amount of time it took to open and close. Additionally, the Union Industries Matadoor helps to complete the smart new finish of the warehouse refurbishment.

Deep Sea Electronics is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of generator controllers, auto transfer switch controllers, battery chargers and vehicle and off-highway controllers. It employs more than 150 people across four continents and sells products to 150 countries, direct from its UK head office and through its comprehensive distributor network.

The Matadoor, which can be used via remote control or swipe-card, joins two Bulldoors already installed by Union Industries almost eight years ago. 

It is engineered from heavy duty materials and components, hence why it is generally used for high use internal doorways, and where extreme reliability is required.

Matadoor, introduced to the UK by Union Industries in 1992, was the first ever high-speed door on the market with a 'Crash-Out & Auto-Reset' feature, which not only allows the bottom beam to swing out of the way if hit by a speeding forklift truck, but automatically resets itself back into the side guides so the door can continue to operate even if damaged.

Adam Sheader, Industrial Engineer at Deep Sea Electronics, said: “We approached Union Industries having experienced the reliability and robustness of its two high-speed Bulldoors in 2016, which are supported by excellent customer service.”

“We were seeking a solution to operational challenges of an older, sectional door which was left over following a refurbishment and was proving problematic due to the length of time it took to operate.”

“We are not only pleased to have found a solution in Union Industries’ Matadoor, but also thrilled to support British manufacturing.”

Steve Moultrie, Technical Sales Engineer at Union Industries, said: “Once again, Union Industries is the go-to for reliable and efficient high-speed doors, which are known for their longevity.” 

“Deep Sea Electronics recognised that they needed a much faster solution and came back to us having experienced the quality and robustness of our doors.”

“We were also able to link into the customer’s existing fob access system to maintain controlled access for this opening, which meant minimal disruption during installation.”
