Mark Jewers, Director of Jewers Doors commented:
“LFB have been specifying bi-folding doors to all new and refurbishment projects for over 25 years, and Jewers have been supplying a large proportion of those projects, so Swift doors were first choice for Kier on this 28 year PFI project.”
“The Swift door opens fully in less than 7 seconds, making them ideal for fire stations where appliances need to exit rapidly under ‘blue light’ emergency response conditions. That’s less than half the time it takes for typical vertical lifting doors to open.”
Mark Jewers added:
“The sideways opening action and the large vision panel within each door leaf provides the fire appliance driver full visibility of the door position and the street outside, to exit the bay safety at all times. With vertical lifting doors, it is difficult to judge when there is sufficient height clearance, and in an emergency situation, it’s not unknown for the appliance to hit the bottom of the door before it’s fully open, resulting in downtime, costly repairs to the door and often the fire engine.”
