Swift doors for Edinburgh Trams depot

Biggleswade-based Jewers Doors has designed and manufactured ten sets of Swift side-hung, automated bi-folding doors at the new Edinburgh Tram maintenance depot in Gogar.

The company worked closely with Gilgen Door Systems UK Ltd who managed the contract with Barr Construction and installed the doors - each door measured 4.0m wide by 7.2m high.

Swift doors are the ideal solution for tram and light rail depots where overhead line equipment (OLE) is used to transmit electricity. At the entrances to maintenance depots, the OLE is a permanent intrusion. Vertically opening doors are unsuitable, making bi-folding doors the only viable solution. Suitably sized and shaped cut-outs are made for the OLE in the leading edges of pairs of doors to open and close around the cables. Another advantage for rail depots is that Swift doors do not require a bottom track - so the threshold is left clear.

Swift doors are part of the Phoenix range of sliding folding industrial doors made by Jewers Doors and installed throughout the UK and worldwide.

Swift doors are available in several leaf configurations, are fully compliant with European safety standards and require minimal maintenance. The image shows Swift bi-folding doors fitted at Old Oak Common maintenance depot, London.
