One of the recent jobs that Cooks Industrial Doors completed was replacing a non-compliant door with a modern roller shutter in Wymondham, a market town in Norfolk. The existing door at this business did not meet the requirements of BS EN 12604, which is a European standard that specifies the mechanical aspects of industrial, commercial and garage doors and gates. This standard covers the safety, performance, durability and testing of these products, as well as the protection against hazards such as crushing, shearing, impact and falling.
The non-compliant door posed a risk to the safety of the staff and customers of the business, as well as the security of the premises. It was also likely to incur higher maintenance costs and lower efficiency. That is why we recommended replacing it with a new compliant door that meets all the relevant standards and regulations.
Titan Industrial Door
The new door that Cooks Industrial Doors installed is a heavy duty Titan industrial hand chain operated non-insulated roller shutter door. It is made of galvanised steel laths with end locks and a bottom rail with neoprene seal. It also has nylon draught brush seal to reduce air leakage and noise. The door is manually operated by a hand chain gear assembly with an anti-fall back device to comply with BS EN 12604. The device prevents the door from falling in case of a failure in the suspension system. The door also has a padlockable hand chain for security.

These kinds of jobs are Cooks Industrial Doors' everyday work and we take great pleasure in ensuring that businesses have doors that will operate safely and reliably for years to come. We also help our customers save money and energy over the duration of the door's use by only installing high quality products.
