An Open-Shut Case.

An Open-Shut Case

DIGIDOOR – A Hydro Doors Brand, has been one of SA’s leading garage door manufacturers since 1973.

Requirement

One of Hydro Doors’ products is a roll-up garage door with a hardware kit, for which bulk fasteners had to be pre-packed into each kit. This process was time-consuming and prone to errors, leading to delays resulting from a QC point of view.

Our Solution

We offered to import several items in predetermined small bag/pre-packed kit and created a fully-fledged prepacking division. We also maintain a month’s floating pre-packed stock for immediate delivery or to respond to increases in sales.

Results

A faster, more reliable, zero-defect system. The Digidoor pre-pack staff members were redeployed and better utilised elsewhere within their core business.

Requirement

Digidoor also required fastener variants based on American-specified imperial measurements.

Our Solution

As imperial-specification fasteners are always HT-grade (unnecessary in this application), we proposed a more suitable fastener in line with metric parameters.

Results

A lower purchase price, which we have been able to hold constant for four years.

Requirement

Existing coach screws were not performing adequately when tasked with attaching garage door frames to concrete.

Our Solution

We assisted with R&D on coach screws to create a washer-faced lag screw for fastening door frames into concrete.

Results

The development of a fully threaded, washer-faced screw with knurling below the head, and better grip into green wall plugs.
