Company Profile

  • Three specialist door solutions for Airports

    Hart focuses on three specialist areas for Airports. The first is Baggage Handling where Hart’s high-speed automatic shutters protect and complement handling and conveyor systems from smoke and fire threats in a frequent operations environment.

    The second area is Security/Fire where Hart has a range of security and fire spread prevention shutters with up to one hour rating. The third area is Storage/Access, from roller shutters to high-speed doors up to 6m wide x 8m high.

    This product range covers the vast majority of requirements but we remain flexible enough to work with clients to develop systems for one-off installations. To maintain standards we have introduced a formal system of quality practices, contained in a series of documented procedures which meet the standards specified in BS EN ISO 9001-2008.

    Further there is comprehensive service and maintenance back-up through the company’s own services teams which continue to grow to cater for large-scale service contracts.

    Be it for automatic high-speed doors, industrial doors and shutters, fire prevention and protection and security, Hart demonstrates above all customer empathy in the delivery of advanced door systems that are often innovative and engineered solutions for specific problems. It is this ‘can do’ approach with sets Hart aside with other companies within the industrial door sector.

  • Quality and innovation for Airport door systems

    “It’s all about ‘can do’” says Julian Britnell, national sales manager at Hart Door Systems, the Newcastle upon Tyne-based specialist industrial door designer and manufacturer.

    The ‘can do’ is a reflection on the needs of customers which, by and large, can be accommodated by Hart’s broad product range but at times the requirement to solve a particular problem needs an engineered solution that works time and time again under testing conditions.

    “Upper-most in my mind is the ability of Hart to deliver high quality solutions across a very wide range of industries not just in the UK but abroad,” says Mr. Britnell. “Airport customers, for example, come to Hart for solutions and high-quality ones at that which comply with UK, EU and international standards confirming the end-product achieves a standard which complies with the expectations of our customers and any applicable contractual and legislative requirements.”

    Hart and ‘airports’ is a long-term partnership with Hart being acknowledged as a door solutions expert, “a company that can be relied on to deliver the results and one that understands how airport projects are managed”. Hart has the proven track record of British engineering and service excellence on nearly 40 international airports.

    These include Heathrow, where Hart installed forty eight number check-in desks with a unique design, developed for Vanderlande conveyors, combining  features from other Hart products namely fire, security and high speed automatic operation.

    Other airports Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, Newcastle, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Banjul Airport, Gambia, Baghdad, King Abdulaziz, KSA, Dubai International, Malta, Vladivostok, Bergen, Seychelles, Jersey, Falklands and Casablanca.

  • From Speedors to fire and security shutters

    In the UK Hart delivered a range of products, from Speedor high-speed doors to a range of fire and security shutters on contracts at Heathrow, for the Lakesmere, Building Envelope Specialists, where four Speedor ‘Supers’, ranging in size from 2.807m to 3.75m wide to 2.6m high are required, and at Gatwick for Morgan Sindall PLC on the South Terminal Airside Bag Drop Development.

    As can be seen Hart is active across the globe on airport projects of widely differing sizes. Not only does this success pay testimony to Hart’s product range but to the company’s reputation for delivering British engineered excellence.

    There are door solutions for conveyor systems, doors that provide security, frequent action, high speed options and that prevent smoke and fire spreading all helping airports with their green foot-print by saving energy.

    This unique level of product specialism for airports comes from Hart’s policy to drive door systems development, subsequent, exhaustive, product testing that ensures the systems produced by Hart work and are practical.

    Other examples of airport contracts, Hart, working with Gatwick Airport and the Beumer Group, which provides fully integrated automated high-speed airport baggage handling systems for small, medium, and large airports world-wide, created a unique solution to sealing a fire shutter around the conveyor without a break in the belt system.

    Usually conveyor systems would have a break in the conveyor to allow a fire shutter to drop through the gap and seal the opening. This can cause an issue with luggage which can become snagged in the gap.

    By developing a fully certified fire shutter with an underside enclosed seal, Hart provided the perfect solution with the additional benefit that Hart is the only company in UK to offer either BS or UL compliance.

    The Hart designed fire shutter allows for a continuous belt and conveyor system which meets very stringent rules required on fire shutters for conveyor systems and it is the first time that this type of fire shutter has been fitted in the UK.

  • Door systems for international airports

    Working at King Abdulaziz International Airport, Jeddah, Hart Door Systems completed an order for 177 fire and security shutters for the baggage conveyor handling system. Hart was responsible for providing a two-hour fire seal on openings in the firewalls within the terminal.

    As the conveyors pass through the openings it was necessary to seal them above, from underneath and the sides, to prevent fire penetration. These implications required Hart to complete a further fire test of a completed assembly to UL standards, a world first.

    Hart also worked with Antemina International on a door project at Baghdad International Airport. This project was an interesting logistical challenge in that Hart had to ship 16 fire shutters, some 8m wide x 3.8m high in five containers to the port at Basra and then by road to Baghdad, a large order, from a weight point of view, of about 30 tonnes.

    Hart also supplied fire and security systems for baggage handling at Aqaba Airport for Gate Technologies, as well as 12 Speedor ‘Supers’ for Dubai International Airport.

    A further airport contract is at Casablanca International where Hart has just completed a fire and security shutter installation.
