Door & Lock Options

We offer a range of door types from simple hinged doors, standard sliding doors and sliding doors without overhead rails for unrestricted access.

Doors can be supplied with a simple magnetic catch, a cylinder lock, a push bar emergency exit or one of our Safe Lock range. Please contact us for details.


Panel Fixings

We offer 2 types of fixing to secure the panels to posts, both conforming to the latest machinery directives. You may choose either type, or a mixture of both.

Our standard and most cost effective is the 'SF fixing'. These clamp to the post allowing the floor gap to be adjusted between 0-150mm. Fixings are retained within the panels to comply with Machinery Directives.

The second option is the 'RF fixing'. Use this type of fixing where fast and easy access is required. Panels can be removed quickly for maintenance, etc (using a tool). Once the work is complete, simply 'click' the panel back in place. Brackets can be mounted to give a floor gap of between 0-150mm.
