Pro Kinetic Shutters at the Winter Show

Pro Kinetic Shutters at the Winter Show

By In News On December 10, 2016


The Winter Show is one of the highlights in the agricultural exhibition calendar here in Northern Ireland and this year proved to be as busy as ever, with the day supported by both exhibitors and farmers alike.

The show takes place annually at the EIKON Centre within the maze showgrounds complex and is organised by the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS). We had fully operational small scale models on display and the farmers had the opportunity to test them for themselves as well as appreciate the quality.

During the day, we were asked about the installation of large doors and we able to showcase our certification for wind load testing. This is a test conducted on our doors in England which confirms that they are capable of withstanding gale force winds.

We spent a considerable amount of time developing our stands for this year’s event and which allowed us to showcase some of the new technologies coming onto the market for various sectors of the door industry. One of the innovative items was the blackout curtain for poultry sheds. This curtain allows the main doors to be opened on the day of transfer, but still maintains darkness.

On the stand this year, we had the pleasure of utilising the staff from Ellard UK – this is the motor company with whom we partner to supply the electrical components of our products. With the high quality provided by Ellard, we are able to offer an unrivalled warrantee cover for our products as well as being able to offer unique solutions to individual client needs.
