Hart sees 2023 as a year of opportunity
Published: 18 January, 2023
Hart Door Systems, the original British manufacturer of the high-speed door concept, is confident that there are considerable prospects for another successful year for the Speedor brand.
“Our management team led by Nick Hart as managing director and David Mason as sales director has just delivered a very good year when there has been many uncertainties in the UK economy and wider afield.
“In that challenging business environment we have had many successes at home and abroad not just through the Speedor range of high-speed doors but through our range of high quality shutters. Both these leading brands have had additional variants introduced such as Speedor ECO and our Typhoon shutters,” says Doug Hart, chairman, Hart Door Systems.
“The breadth of offer created by the choice of solutions for industry and commerce has cemented our presence in the UK market and globally. The fundamentals delivered by Hart are quality throughout manufacture to installation as well as service back-up to comply with changing national and international safety standards.
“We are also cognisant of Climate Change issues and the need to keep both Hart’s and our clients’ carbon footprints to a minimum by using the latest manufacturing technology to streamline the manufacturing process. Where possible we would use recyclable materials.”
Looking more closely at Speedor ECO, this high-speed door complements Hart’s very successful Speedor Storm, Speedor Mini and sub brands such as Speedor Conveyor and Speedor Cleanroom, further strengthening Hart’s overall high-speed door offer.
Speedor ECO is a new mid-range variant suitable for external use up to Class 3 and available up to 5m x 5m size whereas the Speedor Mini is for internal use only to a maximum 4m x 4m size. The focus with these two Speedor options is on lower price and high-speed doors that can be tailored to meet clients’ budgets.
Mr Hart says: “With the new Speedor ECO being a mid-priced high-speed door variant with state of the art direct drives and controls which are BSEN safety compliant, the ECO offers single or variable speed motor, heavy fabric and hand chain operation if necessary.
This adds to ECO’s many other features such as safe operation, reliability and ruggedness. “We have always had quality as our prime driver and our success with new variants, not just in high-speed doors but shutters such as our new Typhoon range, the fundamentals are quality throughout manufacture to installation and service to comply with changing national and international safety standards,” says Mr Hart.
“Without doubt there is demand for a mid-priced high-speed door variant such as ECO and given our considerable experience, we are the ones to deliver it,” he adds. “ECO will appeal to companies requiring a high-speed door solution but within a tight budget. It is for frequent use, high traffic situations where low maintenance is a priority.
“In all cases across our range of brands, we comply with the new code of practice announced by the DHF Door Hardware Federation and we are ever mindful of post installation maintenance costs. So while Mini and ECO cater for less demanding environments, Speedor Storm’s increasing success is based on its improved, rugged, design predominately for external use up to 8m x 6m/6m x 8m) often in robust operating conditions with high wind loads.
“We have always had quality as our prime driver and our success with new variants, not just in high-speed doors but shutters such as our new Typhoon range, the fundamentals are quality throughout manufacture to installation and service to comply with changing national and international safety standards.”
