Quick Access for Slick Stitch Staff
Improving both security and accessibility, TORMAX was recently contracted to remove two manual doors at the Slick Stitch head offices and replace them with new, single sliding automatic entrance systems.
Contained in a compact casing that measures just 100mm high, the doors are powered by two in-house designed, iMotion 2202 operators, delivering whisper-quiet, reliable performance. Ensuring a high level of protection, the doors incorporate a secure electro-mechanical locking mechanism, which TORMAX interfaced with Slick Stitch’s existing access control system.
Slick Stitch is one of world’s largest apparel personalisation fulfilment businesses, servicing major brands and retailers. Based in Wolverhampton, the Company operates across the globe with a full suite of technology-led solutions from warehousing, garment embellishment to end-consumer logistics.
The existing manual doors to the staff entrance and main reception both needed upgrading, particularly as the security locks had become worn over time. Providing a more aesthetically attractive solution, the TORMAX entrances bring light into the lobby areas whilst the black powder-coated profile perfectly off-sets the new signage.
“We have been really very pleased with the new entrances,” comments Pete Gwilt, Production Manager for Slick Stitch. “The upgraded reception is considerably smarter and is certainly more befitting of our position as the no.1 apparel personalisation fulfilment business in the UK.”
TORMAX offers a complete range of bespoke entrance solutions to suit almost any location. All their iMotion operators offer unsurpassed reliability thanks to a unique design feature which negates the need for parts that often wear out, such as gears and brushes, considerably reducing maintenance requirements and unscheduled down-time.
Maximising system performance at all times, AC motor technology combines with state-of-the-art microprocessor controls to ensure permanent monitoring of the movements of door leaves, making automatic adjustments.
