Our skilled team efficiently dismantled, lowered, and disposed of the outdated folding shutter, including all its mechanisms, using specialized lifting equipment. This cleared the way for the seamless installation of the new entrance. Despite the challenges posed by the steel work, our experienced fitters successfully maneuvered it into position.

The end result was a remarkable transformation, providing the warehouse with a sleek, efficient, and easily accessible new entrance.
