STEEL SUBSTATION DOORS / BIN STORE DOORS
HM Group’s range of Steel Substation Doors and Steel Bin Store Doors are specifically designed for remote sites where ventilation is required and vandalism is anticipated.
Applications include the replacement of wooden doors on electricity substations, bin stores and other remote storage facilities.

BENEFITS WHEN CHOOSING STEEL SUBSTATION / BIN STORE DOORS
Both the frame and door leaves are constructed without welding to maintain anti-corrosive properties. With the frame and door made from zintec steel with stainless steel hinges and hard-wearing polyester powder paint finish, the door is less prone to rusting, providing an all-around durable solution. Howard Mitchell recommends outward opening doors for greater security, as these are more difficult for potential attackers to ‘kick in’.
Steel, Louvred Substation and Bin Store doors are more cost-effective and more durable alternatives to wooden doors, which are commonly used on plants and substations. The added strength and durability will increase the lifespan of your doors and save on replacement costs over time.
The door leaf is manufactured with an integral anti-jemmy strip and high-security, solid steel dog bolts. These provide additional protection for the locking system, deterring unauthorised access. Locking bars are optional for added protection to external locking systems.
The lightweight construction and lift-off hinges provide for easier installation, whilst being manufactured to comply with lifting regulations.
EASY ACCESS FOR LARGE MACHINERY
The option of a removable top transom panel provides greater access for plant machinery. Class 1 doors are available in extra wide, bi-folding and tri-folding configurations as well as the standard single, leaf & half and double doors.
REINFORCED FRAME PROFILE
Our Substation and Bin Store door frames are secured to the wall structure through pre-punched fixing holes, which are concealed from view.
ADVANTAGES OF VENTILATED (LOUVRED) DOOR LEAVES
Ventilation can be provided by punched louvres on the outer skin of the door leaf and slots on the inner skin (60mm wide which protrude 5mm). Leaves can be half or fully louvred depending on specifications required.
Small louvred slots on the front and slots on the back of the door prevent the entry of small animals into your substation or bin store area.
ADVANTAGES OF STEEL SUBSTATION / BIN STORE DOORS
A HMG Steel Substation / Bin Store Door will provide many advantages over traditional constructed doors in timber, aluminum, composite or pvc. A hollow metal door will be much stronger and more secure. Steel Security Doors are also a visual deterrent as anyone considering breaking and entering is more likely to attack a weaker timber, aluminum or composite door.
