The Challenge

Due to the size and weight of the insulated roller shutter at 10.5m wide and 6.3m high, this was a difficult installation in an area where the headroom was very tight. A crane was required to lift the shutter into position after opening two holes in the building’s roof so lifting chains could be dropped through to facilitate moving the shutter into position.

Project/Doors Required

5 External Speedor
1 Internal Speedor Mini
12 Fire Shutter
21 Pedestrian doors
1 Electric roller shutter
1 Insulated Roller Shutter


Project Challenges



Large Vehicle access
Large bespoke doors required for access


Advanced Specification
A range of specialist doors were required to give varying benefits


In this busy manufacturing facility, reliable products with minimal maintenance are essential


The Solution

Hart was contracted by Sir Robert McAlpine to supply and install a range of industrial doors at the Taylors of Harrogate site. This included the installation of the three-tonne insulated roller shutter completing a work package of over 40 doors.


The Success

The installation of the shutter concluded a project which Hart was involved with through Sir Robert McAlpine and which saw almost every Hart door product installed – from Speedor high speed doors to fire shutters, security shutters and steel personnel doors.
