The doors which we had fitted in 2014, were free of any issues or faults, despite minimal upkeep from the client.
Reichhold Manufacturing Site
Reichhold is one of the world’s largest suppliers of unsaturated polyester resins, for a wide variety of markets, operating from a manufacturing site in Mitcham, South London.
In 2014, the facility was one of the very first in the UK to receive our Alufire doors, following a comprehensive fire risk assessment (FRA).
A more recent, routine FRA identified that the doors we had fitted in 2014 were free of any issues or faults, despite minimal upkeep from the client – assuring them that the product is fit-for-purpose, without much maintenance.
However, the same FRA recognised the requirement for the replacement doors within another area of the factory. This time, the control room.
Due to the robust and effective nature of Reichhold’s first set of Alufire doors, they chose to approach Checkmate Fire to install the product within the control room, in order to bring the building up to high fire safety standards.
After an assessment of the area, we suggested our aluminium-framed, fully-glazed fire-resistant Alufire doors, which fulfil all local fire authority standards, while offering a modern design and excellent acoustic values.
The manufacturing hub is a very busy facility, with employees working in and around the control room area. The challenge we faced was to install the doors while causing minimum disruption to the day-to-day operations of Reichhold workers.
We erected adequate health and safety signage and barriers while the work was being completed, assuring that factory staff were protected, allowing us to carry out the installation quickly and safely.
The result is a set of fully-compliant, bespoke doors which satisfy all parties and heightening the safety of all staff and visitors at the Reichhold plant. The operations team were very happy with the quality of Checkmate’s work and are set to use our services again in the future.
