Range of Solutions to Counter Cold Weather From Apex

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

Wim Dessing, managing director of Apex Strip Curtains & Doors says that during the winter months and inclement weather it becomes extremely difficult to maintain a constant temperature which often translates into unpleasant working conditions.

The company, that pioneered the use of flexible PVC strips in a number of industrial applications, offers a range of solutions including impact traffic doors and high speed doors.

“Comfortable working conditions have significant bearing on a company’s productivity and customers are continuously looking for ways to improve both working conditions and worker comfort,” Dessing says. “Our wide range of doors and enclosures are specifically designed for applications where the maintenance of consistent temperatures on the work floor is required.”

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

Each individual PVC strip features the patented Balledge® design that ensures 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 to allow easy access for both equipment and personnel.

The company’s range of high speed doors offer a viable solution for quick and easy access, and 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.

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.
