New sliding gates for Newsprinters! -


Knowsley | July 2015

The Knowsley site of Newsprinters was born out of, and on, the existing News UK Newspapers site at Prescot on the outskirts of Liverpool. Operating since summer 2007, the plant houses five Manroland Colorman XXL printing presses and is capable of producing a massive 430,000 newspaper copies an hour!

Against the industry trend, they have grown their print volumes and customer base to the point where they have 40 individual products including over 2.5 million high quality magazines. Every day their staff delivers world class products to the tightest of deadlines, and so it’s important that their security is up to scratch at all hours of the day.

As with many companies, Newsprinters find it essential to be able to ‘lock down’ the site at certain operating times. Although they were kitted out with a sliding gate system, Expert were brought on board to provide a more up to date, and slick operating system for their security needs.

Expert did a thorough site inspection, following which it was decided that the best solution to their security needs would be the installation of a Cantilever Sliding Gate.
