Two more Speedors for British Salt

Published:  19 October, 2021

Hart Doors has completed the installation of two Speedor Storms at the Middlewich, Cheshire, plant of British Salt adding to the range of Hart doors already on site.

The Speedor Storm is an external high-speed fabric door designed for frequent use in high traffic situations and where exceptional wind resistance is required up to class 5 as defined by DIN EN 12424, on larger openings up to 6m x 8m.

Brian Woodcock, Hart’s area sales manager, says a wide range of Hart’s doors have been installed at the plant over the years including two types of Speedors and several roller shutters and pedestrian doors.

“The latest Speedor Storms have stainless steel canopies and conduits to extend resistance to corrosion,” says Mr Woodcock. “The air is corrosive so the use of stainless steel gives the doors additional robustness.”

Established in 1969, British Salt has been manufacturing, storing and supplying salt for over five decades, from its state of the art plant in Middlewich, Cheshire. Now the premier supplier of salt within the UK, British Salt has been part of the Tata Chemicals Europe family since 2011.
