EFAFLEX high – speed doors to reduce the risk of workplace incidents and optimise workflow
4 Minute Read
Facilitating fast and efficient movement of goods. Minimising the risk of incidents. Increasing workflow. Automatic activation. Creating a safe environment and protecting operatives around high- risk machinery. These are just some of the reasons why EFAFLEX have become the partner of choice for customers operating within the processing or logistics sector.
How EFAFLEX can help the processing & logistics industry?
Take an aerial view of a warehouse or logistics facility. You might see loading bays where goods arrive and depart, production lines where produce is assembled or manufactured, and temperature or environmentally controlled areas where goods are stored in specific conditions. Add in machinery, operatives, and produce. This is an environment that is familiar to EFAFLEX
At loading bays and docks where areas are exposed to the elements, fast opening and closing door speeds are essential.
Internally between halls or different zones of production areas temperature control, or air purity may be your key consideration.
Along conveyor lines, or around robotic or hazardous equipment, machine protection may be your concern.
EFAFLEX UK Limited returns to PPMA where three of their most popular high-speed doors used within the packing and processing sector will be in action. Darren Turrell, UK Managing Director helps to explain, ‘Warehouse and logistics clients operate in an environment that continually expects shorter and shorter delivery lead times, while finding ways to improve and streamline processes, enhance operational performance and bottom line. It’s a fact that the transportation and storage industry have more incidents involving workplace vehicles than any other sector.’
EFAFLEX will be showcasing their high-speed spiral featuring it’s EFA-THERM® insulating laths, the EFA-STT® turbo, and the fabric roll up option.
Turrell continues, ‘There is nothing quite like seeing our high-speed doors in action. PPMA gives us this opportunity to meet with customers and discuss their specific requirements. Each order is manufactured bespoke to the customer requirements. Our high-speed doors are a premium brand, but when you factor in the whole life cost savings, such as radically reduced energy costs due to their operating speeds and insulation properties, they are a cost-effective option. 60% of our orders are from customers who have made this calculation and chosen to replace old roller shutters or overhead sectional doors because of the many benefits that an EFAFLEX door will offer.
Consider too that incidents not only can cause injuries to people, but they can result in unwanted costly downtime, which can have an unexpected knock-on effect that ripples throughout the processing facility.
