An automatic barrier that was relied on to allow crew and visitors access to the site – and to prevent unauthorised entry – had to be removed due to rust that had built up over time. Instead, the RNLI had to rely on traffic cones to control access while waiting for a more practical option. Local installer, South West Garage Doors (SWGD), found a solution that would not only provide the level of access control required by the RNLI, but that would withstand the challenging weather conditions in this part of Cornwall. In an exposed coastal location such as Sennen Cove, rust caused by the coastal environment can be a major issue when it comes to equipment longevity. The new solution would have to perform reliably throughout the year and the preference was for an automatic barrier. A robust solution SWGD installed a BFT Automation Maxima Ultra 36 barrier in stainless steel finish, which is suitable for intensive use and provides weather resistance, minimising the damage caused by saltwater spray. The stainless steel casing ensures that the electromechanical barrier mechanism is protected from the elements. BFT’s flagship barrier, the Maxima Ultra 36 can provide a drive-through gap of up to six metres – the perfect size for cars, small vans and lifeboat trailers to pass through. Jon Burtenshaw, Managing Director of South West Garage Doors, said: “We have been working with BFT Automation for many years. When we were specifying this project for the RNLI, we knew we needed a solid, reliable product which would work in this difficult environment. BFT barriers were the obvious choice.” Kevin Spinks, Managing Director of BFT Automation, added: “This is a great example of the robustness and reliability of BFT Automation products. Even in the most challenging of environments, they can be counted on to provide excellent performance and we are pleased that a fantastic organisation like the RNLI has put their trust in one of our products.” Part of the Somfy Group, BFT Automation is a manufacturer and distributor of entrance automation technology that controls access for people and vehicles in commercial, residential and urban environments. BFT automatic barriers provide a reliable solution to security and exit and entry for parking sites, premises and other restricted areas.

Cedar, oak, brushed aluminium, and architectural composites – all very expensive when used to make a garage door! Fort is using a screen-print polymer coating that uses images of these materials to create collections of garage doors that are unique. From a few paces back the doors look like “the real thing”, step up close and the smooth surface of the screen-print polymer coating can be seen. Blind Testing of the Concept Lee Moon, Fort’s Managing Director had this to say - “The doors are quite something. We started with the idea of creating timber doors using photographic images of doors and the results were impressive. We produced some samples and blind tested them with trade. We’d stand them a few metres back from the doors and ask what they thought. Every time it was the same quizzical answer “It’s just a timber garage door?” We’d then invite them to move closer and “Ohhhh, that’s clever, how much are they?” was invariably the response. We knew we were on to a winner and developed the collections”. The Naturals Wood Effect Collection The Naturals collection uses images of six cedar-effect and four oak-effect garage doors bonded to a door “blank”. The door blanks have been specially developed to act as a smooth base for the screen-print polymer coating of the door images. The doors are available as side hinged and single door-size up and over doors. Also online at: www.dijonline.co.uk Domestic Garage Doors The Contemporary Collection The Contemporary collection uses images of architectural surfaces to create a strikingly contemporary collection. The collection comprises of designs that reflect current trends in entrance door designs with effects that mimic aluminium, concrete, woodgrain and other architectural surfaces. Just a selection from the ranges is shown above - the new Fort range guide shows the full range and the colour options for each design. Priced to Attract Attention The collections are priced just above the standard Fort steel door pricing but well below the pricing for timber and composite doors. The collections not only look great but also only require minimal upkeep and come with a twoyear warranty on its finish. For more information on the new doors, full pricing and brochures, contact Fort Doors on 0121 749 3699 or email sales@fortdoors.co.uk “The Naturals collection brings the look of real timber at an affordable price” A new concept in garage doors from Fort 59 THE door industry journal summer 2022 Just another timber door? NO! The screen-print polymer coating looks like the real thing.
