Opening the door to better SHEQ standards

Home Infrastructure Environmental – Green Industries Opening the door to better SHEQ standards

 

THE locally manufactured Apex SR 9000 insulated impact traffic door complies with all relevant safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ) standards.

That’s according to Wim Dessing, Sales Executive at Apex Strip Curtains and Doors, who said this was important for end-users and allows them to gain the maximum advantage in terms of SHEQ compliance.

“Each Apex SR 9000 door is manufactured to meet specific opening requirements and combines functionality with longevity in areas where the movement of pedestrians and goods is particularly high,” he said.

The door is manufactured from a 3 mm ABS skin that retains its physical properties down to temperatures of minus 5°C, making it ideal for use in walk-in cold rooms and similar refrigerated applications. The low maintenance skin is impervious to moisture, acids, petroleum products, animal fats, rodents, insects and salt solutions.

The door’s insulation characteristics are enhanced further by the internal design elements. These include the injection of a high density, non-CFC urethane foam into the hollow shell of the door.

Standard vision panels constructed from 3mm clear polycarbonate sheeting are available in a number of custom sizes. However, the Apex SR 9000 is also available without the vision panel which allows greater flexibility of use.

Additional features include scratch resistance and UBC compatibility for enhanced visibility, and it is available in a choice of six colours.

The company has a network of agents throughout South Africa who offer technical and installation support.
