Heidelberg Cement, Schelklingen (DE)
Reliable even under extreme wind load
The cement plant Schelklingen of Heidelberg Cement AG requires a big-sized door in order to load and unload trucks laterally. Since the logistics hall is located in a non-wind-protected area there have been enormous problems with the previous steel roller shutter. The wind influenced the door operation in a way which made reliable door function and dispatch of goods impossible. Butzbach as the expert for big door dimensions managed the removal of the existing door and installed a stacking door HT150 with dimensions of appr. 12 x 5 m. The massive structure and the fibreglass material with its outstanding rigidity allow problem-free door operation even under high wind pressure. The formation of dust which appears along with cement handling does not create a negative impact on the door function as well. The Butzbach stacking door provides even more advantages – the roof construction is not charged with the door loads and the translucent fibreglass creates a brightly illuminated loading area – a fact which is highly appreciated by the forklift operators.
