Keep the winter chill out at your manufacturing facility

With the temperatures dropping Apex Strip Curtains & Doors presents its well-known Apex General Purpose Strip Curtains, high speed doors and impact traffic doors which are specially designed for applications where the maintenance of consistent temperature on the work floor is required.

Large doorways left open to facilitate easy access at manufacturing and storage facilities present challenges in terms of maintaining a pleasant and comfortable working environment.

Winter is here

Wim Dessing, sales executive at Apex Strip Curtains & Doors, says that during winter it becomes extremely difficult to maintain a constant temperature with these large openings. “This translates into unpleasant working conditions, negatively affecting productivity, and as the cold weather approaches we are inundated with requests from customers looking at ways to improve both working conditions and employee comfort,” he says.

Locally manufactured from specially formulated PVC material, Apex General Purpose Strip Curtains are ideal to cordon off areas within manufacturing facilities, workshops, storage areas or warehouses. This highly effective product is generally fitted on hanging hardware across a door or entrance way on specially made framework.

Each individual PVC strip features the patented Balledge design ensuring an efficient thermal seal preventing the ingress of cold air into the workplace. The transparent strips allow unimpaired vision into enclosed areas, and part readily under pressure allowing easy access for both equipment and personnel.

Quick and easy access

Apex Strip Curtains & Doors’ range of high speed doors offers a viable solution for quick and easy access. When installed these contribute significantly to improved productivity. These doors are suitable for a wide variety of applications, including warehousing areas as they do not hinder personnel, forklift or vehicular traffic and, depending on the actual operation, can be either automatically or manually controlled.

The Sector high speed roll-up door, manufactured locally by Apex Strip Curtains & Doors, delivers both functionality and performance. It is robust enough to cope with the intensive demands of heavy and continuous traffic.

The Traffic high speed fold-up doors offers a sturdy, dependable and modular solution for medium and large entrances such as shipment and warehouse areas, and are particularly suited to conditions where wind is a factor.

Installation of both is quick and easy because the support structure contains all the electrical drive gear and a special mechanical counterbalancing system. The doors are controlled by an electronic unit which complies with all IEC regulations and can be activated by any type of remote control equipment including photocells, pressure sensitive mats, movement detectors or induction loops. To facilitate safety, the door is fitted with a release lever that opens it from either side in the event of a power failure or malfunction.

Health and safety

Also locally manufactured is the Apex SR 9000 high impact traffic door which complies with all relevant safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ) standards. The door is made from a 3 mm ABS skin which is impervious to moisture, acids, petroleum products, animal fats, rodents, insects and salt solutions.

Standard vision panels constructed from 3 mm clear polycarbonate sheeting are available in a number of custom sizes. However, the Apex SR 9000 is also available without the vision panel which allows greater flexibility of use.

Apex Strip Curtains & Doors provides a technical information service assisting customers in selecting the most appropriate door for a particular application.
