CDW Systems, the Gloucester-based trade and commercial fabricator, has joined forces with automatic door specialists Prosale to offer installer customers training around automated doors.

The new training sessions extend a long and successful partnership between the two firms whereby CDW manufactures and supplies aluminium doors, ready for Prosale to apply their automated gearing. The training takes place at Prosale’s state-of-the-art facilities in Gloucester and is designed to give installers a complete overview of specifying and installing sliding, swinging and revolving automatic doors.

“We are absolutely delighted to partner with Prosale to support their installer training initiative,” comments Mike Davis, Managing Director of CDW Systems. “Whilst automatic doors may be a popular feature in a wide variety of commercial projects, they can still be complex. If specified or installed incorrectly, they could quite easily cause projects to be delayed or lead to costly call-backs to site.

“This training brings together the leader in automatic door technology and one of the industry’s most respected aluminium fabricators to give installers complete product and installation training on a wide range of door systems. This not only ensures projects are completed correctly, but reputations are safeguarded, and relationships are protected. It’s a fantastic initiative from Prosale and we’re delighted to be involved.”

Mike Coggins, Director at Prosale Automatic Doors adds: “We’re really thrilled to have the support of CDW Systems for our new training initiative. It’s fantastic to have a company with the experience and expertise of CDW Systems right on our doorstep. Our shared passion for delivering unrivalled quality and a complete service makes them a perfect partner for our business and this initiative.

“We want to thank Mike and the CDW team for their help with this training project and their valuable supply partnership. The training rigs supplied by CDW are not only used for our training, but also by the ADIA (Automatic Door Installation Association). The ADIA frequently use our rigs and training facilities for their courses and the response has been incredibly positive which is great to see. It’s all part of our commitment to give installers across the UK the support and confidence to install both of our companies’ products in all kinds of residential and commercial projects.”
