The ProblemA manufacturing customer in the GTA required a custom solution for access to their equipment to easily provide maintenance on it. Each time they performed maintenance on the equipment (annually), they would have to remove a wall out and then re-secure it after. In addition the issues surrounding the wall was clearance space; the only spot where a door could be in installed was under a stairwell. Overall, this cost them a lot of money and huge amounts of downtime every time they maintained the equipment. They had reached out to several other vendors, but none were able to come up with a solution to their problem.
Our Senior Technical Manager Tony Wong went to site to see if a custom solution would suit their needs. Tony recommended a custom door with special mounting requirements to accommodate to the existing wall construction. Wilcox supplied and installed a new door with custom mounting angles and reduced the height of the opening with a false header; if you see the images below, there are sectional door panels being used as a false header to close the opening.
