The Steel Doors Making a Real Difference to Communities

Unitas is a repairs and maintenance company based in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire. With over 500 employees, it’s passionate about making a positive difference to the community within which it operates. We’re proud to have worked with the team at Unitas for over 10 years, providing external gates for individual sites that they manage across the city of Stoke on Trent and the wider area.

Moving away from timber and traditional gates

Timber and traditional style gates have always been the standard external solution for Housing Association developments.   These can include garages, lock ups and housing estate gates.  However, rises in anti-social behaviour creates challenges for these traditional style gates and specifically the timber gate can’t withstand sustained and aggressive treatment over a long period of time.  They’ll need replacing often, making them an ineffective cost solution and keeping costs low while providing residents with secure and safe surroundings is always of paramount importance.  

What makes a Robust UK door so durable?

With more than forty years’ experience in manufacturing custom-made steel door solutions, Robust UK steel doors are strong, durable and designed to suit their surroundings.  

We designed custom made external gates for Unitas, so residents in each development can feel safe and secure and the maintenance team don’t have to worry about ongoing repairs from anti-social behaviour incidents.

The residents of Longton Bungalows in Stoke on Trent, featured in the images here now have security of access around their homes giving them peace of mind. 

The gates are aesthetically pleasing too, fitting perfectly into their surroundings and making them welcoming to residents and their visitors.  

“Unitas is delighted to be supplied by Robust UK.

The gates supplied by Robust are without question the most effective solution for us. They offer longevity, sustainability, and a warranty we can rely upon. Our customers need hard-wearing and long-lasting equipment and Robust were able to give us that.

Furthermore, working alongside Robust UK who are also Stoke-on-Trent based, allows us to reduce transport costs, cut our carbon footprint and benefit the local economy, all of which fall within our company standards.”
