Fancy new doors address temperature control at Smiffy’s

The undisputed market-leading manufacturer of industrial high speed roller doors, Union Industries, has addressed temperature control at fancy dress experts Smiffy’s.


The Leeds-based company, which designs, manufactures, installs and maintains its own range of fast acting doors, has installed two of its innovative Bulldoors at Smiffy’s in Gainsborough to prevent heat escaping from its stock room.

Established in 1894, Smiffy’s has developed into a global organisation and is recognised as the leading fancy dress, Halloween and Carnival equipment and costume manufacturing company in the UK. It distributes nearly 5,000 products to over 5,000 stockists around the world.

The new rapid roll doors will improve the temperature for staff working in the stock room whereas the previous doors had to been left open for deliveries to come and go, which often resulted in cold conditions for staff packing orders.

The Bulldoor is Union’s bestselling fast-acting door for both internal and external use. It can be used on openings up to 4.5m wide x 4.5m high, and with an opening speed of 1.6m/s, it is ideally suited for high volume traffic openings. Smiffy’s Bulldoors, which stand at 2.5m wide x 3.9m high, have been introduced to ensure a safe entry and exit whilst at the same time maintaining a comfortable temperature for staff by retaining heat.

Paul Chable, Technical Sales Engineer at Union Industries, said: “Our fast roller doors have gained an outstanding reputation across numerous different industries. The Bulldoor is a great product and has been very successful in all industry sectors due to its ability to deal with high levels of traffic.”

Mike Waplington, Project Manager at Smiffy’s, said: “We are delighted to have installed the two Bulldoors created by Union. They are exactly what we were looking for and meet all the requirements we had in mind. Not only are the doors great but also the time it took for them to be installed was minimal, meaning as little disruption to regular service as possible.”
