Security Doors

Security Doors

BRIEF

Through factory firecircumstances this client was forced to close manufacturing in Australia over 5 years ago, and has now started establishing unique and high quality doors manufactured again right here in Wetherill Park.

Today, Colonial Security Doors produces the best and strongest doors and has state of the art processes and packaging solutions for their doors.

Colonial Security Doors approached Upac on start-up and needed a secure and time effective package that saved from scratching, knocks and transit damage. Having only a few ideas from the opponent’s package ideas, Upac was given the task of finding a solution.

THE SOLUTION:

Upac’s solutions specialist Gavin Wilson, was allocated to this project and given the scope of designing a solution, demonstrating its attributes and the required equipment. After many manual mock ups and material trials, a system was recommended and presented. Offsite visits to view similar equipment were carried out and finalisation of proposals established and presented. Due to the unique nature of the package, many hours were spent setting up and refining an inline semiautomatic shrink encapsulating machine. Gavin was known to be hands on, and innovative in his approach to technical and practical suggestions on how to best make the solution work effectively. Today, Colonial have a sound packaging system, incorporating damage resistant foam edge components, and a full enclosed film encapsulation, this solution has proved to be cost effective, fast and make handling of the doors swift and safe from damage. Upac have developed a system that is fully operational from design to operation, has reduced damage, improved customer quality perception and also ensured recyclability of all materials.
