Manufacturing Plant bay door, Ellesmere
It took us several hours to remove the existing shutter on this factory entrance door. We used a scissor lift to get to the 5m high roller and motor; and a tele-handler to get the door down in the end. But it was the unusual heavy amount of welding holding the door on which held us back. The shutter had been installed by the factory users themselves many years before; and they had used an excessive amount of MIG welding to attach it.
The installation of the new shutter took only four hours from start to finish; it offered a far higher opening than the previous one, so that the manufactured products made at the factory could be removed with use of large articulated lorries.
