Worlds fastest vertically opening door


Existing doors onsite were passed their use-by date, prone to mechanical failure…”

O-I is a world leading glass container manufacturer with more than a century of experience crafting pure, sustainable, brand-building glass packaging for many of the world’s best-known food and beverage brands. O-I provide high quality glass packaging for beer, wine, spirits, food, non-alcoholic beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Premier Door Systems recently partnered with O-I to supply replacement High Speed Doors for their facility in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria – Australia.

Existing doors onsite were passed their use-by date, prone to mechanical failure and aesthetically not in-keeping with the façade of an international market leader. Deterioration of the clear vision sections of the existing doors, meant that site safety was compromised and the risk of collision to equipment and personnel increased.

Premier Door Systems installed EFAFLEX STR High Speed Doors to the existing openings. EFAFLEX is the global leader in High Speed Door Manufacturing, specializing exclusively in High Speed Doors since 1974, the EFAFLEX range of High Speed Doors are of the highest quality and safety.
