Why choose Hart Doors?

Manufacturers of reliable, long-lasting and high quality industrial doors and shutters

Roller shutters and high speed doors may be a small part of a building, but they can cause the biggest problems and incur considerable costs if they are not designed with the considerations of each individual site in mind. If an industrial door is low quality or the wrong specification, its operation will undoubtedly be unreliable.

Unreliability can cause a number of problems and will end up costing you time and money.

At Hart we believe in honesty. We may not be the cheapest door quote that you receive initially, but we know through experience that our doors are the most cost-effective solution as they will simply last longer.

You don’t need to be frustrated by long lead times on spare or replacement parts which can cause down time and affect the productivity of your facility.

Hart doors are not imported and are not straight off the shelf. Each door is individually manufactured to suit your door opening in Hart’s fully owned Newcastle factory.

Standard spare parts are available off the shelf which can be delivered next day if required, or we can manufacture bespoke parts as and when required.

Hart do not use subcontractors

We don’t attend site to diagnose a problem, we come to fix it.

We don’t give false promises, so we won’t send someone to site within 24hrs only to look at the door and say it needs an engineer. We will react to your call as quickly as possible and always send a qualified engineer. This means less down time and disruption to your business as we have a high first – time fix rate.

All of our engineering vans are tracked so we know their exact location, which means they can be directed to suit a specific requirement.

All staff are fully employed by Hart which means that we have full accountability for everything that we do.

Hart offers a 12-month warranty as standard on all doors and shutters, with options to extend

The fabric used in our Speedor high speed doors lasts longer and is less likely to split and tear.

Wind class 5 doors - like our Speedor Storm - carry the highest wind class rating when measured against European standards BS/EN 12424. In order to be certified as wind class 5, doors must resist pressure differences across the door blade in excess of 1250 N/m2. This equates to a hurricane-force wind of around 100mph.

We use thicker curtain material made of a multilayer PVC on our Speedors, 20 gauge laths on our roller shutters and our external doors are wind class 5.

Our doors are simply better engineered.

Our standard 12-month warranty can be tailored and extended to 2, 3, 5 years (or longer) on all our doors, based on agreed service plans.

Why do we do this? Because we trust our doors.
