Nissan Car Plant

Speedor Cleanroom for car plant project

Nissan Sunderland is one of the largest, most efficient car plants in Europe. On average, the plant has built a Nissan car every two minutes since production started.

The challenge

Following the manufacture of a new paint plant where Hart have a number of doors including several ATEX, Nissan identified a requirement for new repair lines to enable them to carry out both light and heavy repairs and not have to completely repaint the vehicles. This is fast moving environment with the need for a reliable and dust reducing solution.

Project / doors required

Project challenges

case studies Dusty conditions


Dust reduction and ATEX zone. Threat of odour abatement order

case studies specification

Advanced specification

Unique technical capabilities. Mechanical damage from dust

case studies quality procedures

Reliable construction

High quality design to minimise repair needs

The solution

Using a tried and tested solution, Hart installed these “hybrid” Speedor Cleanrooms with ATEX operators within the repair zone. We worked closely with site engineers to give them the solution they require, rather than a door to fit an opening. The Speedor Cleanroom maintains strict air leakage requirements over specified pressure differentials and a non-touch safety light curtain which ensures maximum protection to personnel.

The success

Hart is a trusted supplier to Nissan and its subcontractors. Having worked on the site since its inception, Nissan approached Hart to supply the doors. Following this Hart were approached by an OEM who provided a full spray booth, after Nissan insisted Hart Doors were specified due to the success of the earlier installations.

The review

“Speedor is a tried and tested product that is why we keep using them.”
