IN BRIEF - August 2017
Meeting the challenges of waste processing, composting and waste transfer sites

Since the EU Waste Framework Directive came into force almost ten years ago there have been some major changes to the way waste is dealt with in the UK. This has led to some significant challenges for commissioning agents and door companies called upon to supply suitable products for these difficult environments.
With waste transfer sites storing household waste that’s started the decomposition process which creates both heat and water vapour leading to high humidity levels coupled with a mildly corrosive atmosphere the drive and control solutions used on the doors are under an unprecedented level of strain. From experience, we know many door drive units and controls have failed in this environment.

In answer to these challenges, GfA has developed IP65i which is an enhanced IP65 drive unit range. Our drive units in the main are IP65 which offers protection against limited water ingress whereas the IP65i goes one step further, preventing damage caused by the ingress of water vapour, which later condenses out leading to short circuits in the limit switches.
IP65i enhanced protection is available on GfA Safedrive® models from 350 – 1400Nm and GfA Ranger models for roller shutter and sectional overhead doors.
Find out more about the IP65i on our website.

New Safedrive® Compact
Extending our range of Safedrive® products for doors that require an anti-fallback device is the new single phase 170Nm Safedrive® Compact. In common with all drives in the range a patented anti-fall back device is built into the gearbox.
The Safedrive® Compact is ideal for roller shutters and rolling grilles fitted in tight spaces and can be fitted vertically or horizontally.
The existing single phase Safedrive® Mini will now form part of our Compact range.
For more details download the Safedrive® Compact catalogue sheet on our website – website reference SG63F- SIK.
