Hart Doors on track
Hart Doors has completed another contract at the Wimbledon Traincare depot, the traction maintenance depot servicing South Western Railway.
Peter Cairns, Hart’s Area Sales Manager, says there are several Hart doors on site already. “This depot is one of the busiest in the country, with an average of 250 carriages maintained there each night. We have several Speedors on site some of which were nearly 30 years old,” says Mr Cairns.
The latest contract was to replace the ageing Speedors in this very busy depot with Hart’s highly energy efficient, Insulated Roller Shutters. “The installation was challenging requiring specific bracketing and in-fills for the new doors,” says Mr Cairns.
“Gaps were created with the removal of the Speedor Supers as the typical footprint of the Speedor was larger than the new Insulated Roller Shutter which were 4.5 metres wide and five metres high. Overall the contract took four weeks.” Hart has also provided Insulated shutters in recent years on a new building on the Wimbledon site working with the contractor, George Osborne and is also active on the Acton Train Care, Gillingham Repair Depot and the Ilford Train Depot.
