Project Details
Located in Stoke-on-Trent, Valentine Clay’s has been supplying clay bodies and raw materials since 1979. They are now a world leading clay body manufacturer and raw materials supplier, producing over 100 varieties to suit all needs. Their close relationship with the pottery and ceramic community allows them to fine tune their clay’s to the specific requirements of their customers. As part of a large expansion plan, they moved into a new site in May 2017, allowing them to continue their product development. The new site included head offices, warehouse & distribution centre, workshops and gallery space.

As this project required both internal fire doors and external fire exit doors, we supplied INNA-DOR’s and OUTA-DOR’s – fitted by Doors For Industry Ltd. Offering up to 60 minutes fire protection, the INNA-DOR’s were essential to ensure the personnel and property was protected from the spread of flames and smoke. These were finished in a Polyester Powder Coating for an aesthetically pleasing design – combining both functionality and stylish looks.

We installed OUTA-DOR fire exit doors fitted with Exidor push bar panic hardware. This allows for warehouse workers to exit the building quickly with minimal effort in the event of a fire. These were also finished with a Polyester Powder Coating, ensuring they matched the INNA-DOR’s.

Customer Testimonial
“Very pleased with our Robust UK doors! We required tough, durable doors that would operate in a busy, high traffic environment such as our warehouse, that also gave peace of mind that we were protected in the event of a fire. Robust UK supplied all this and more – with an extra paint touch up kit in our fitting kit! Thank you, Robust UK!”
