Ulti Group in Kerikeri have just completed the install of an Ulti-Fold Door for the truck entrance of the Carter Holt Harvey LVL plant at Marsden Point.
Carter Holt Harvey is one of the leading forest products companies in Australasia. They are a trade-focussed building supplies and hardware distributor for both residential and commercial markets across New Zealand.
Carter Holt Harvey approached Ulti Group to provide a high cycle door for the Marsden Point plants’ truck entrance that is used for dispatch. The truck entrance door had been remaining open all day due to frequent traffic which was not ideal as the site experiences extreme wind. A door that could handle the 120km/h+ winds which sometimes come upon this opening and provide quick access to the dispatch entrance was needed to fulfill the brief.
Ulti Group selected the Ulti-Fold Door which is ideal for dust control in warehouses and manufacturing facilities. This rapid acting folding door is ideal for situations where both speed and strength are required and is an economic solution for all types of warehouses.
For this application, the door was made with extra strength wind bars with a wind rating of 150km/h at 5000mm wide and 4800mm high. Due to trucks using the opening, tower beam light grill safety sensors were added at 2.3m high to prevent the door closing between a truck and its trailer (a common problem with automatic doors).
We thank Carter Holt Harvey for making the right decision, and look forward to working with them in future!
