EXPO 2020 Opens New Doors for Jewers

Jewers Doors have just completed the installation of sixteen sets of Phoenix Swift bi-folding doors for the newly constructed Fire and Ambulance stations at the $15.5 billion EXPO 2020 Project in Dubai.

EXPO 2020 is the first Exposition or World Fair to be held in the Middle East region. The 438 hectare site will open in October 2020 and run until April 2021 featuring exhibits from almost 200 countries following the theme of "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future". Three themed parks dedicated to Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability will be organised around the Central Plaza. 

To service the EXPO 2020 site, permanent Fire, Police and Ambulance stations were constructed. Jewers were commissioned to supply and install bi-folding doors for the eight vehicle access bays in each of the fire and ambulance service stations. All doors were manufactured at Jewers’ Bedfordshire factory, shipped to site and installed by their Dubai-based teams.

Each door is 4.3m wide x 4.3m high and is configured in four leaves with two leaves folding neatly to each side of the opening. 600mm x 1200mm double glazed toughened glass windows set in thermally broken aluminium frames are fitted in each door to improve driver vision and interior illumination. Swift doors are electrically operated using a pair of hydraulic drive units which open them fully in just 7 seconds for rapid vehicle exit in emergency conditions, and are fitted with full safety devices to protect users and vehicles during operation.

Horizontally bi-folding doors were specified for speed, safety, reliability, superior sealing properties and low maintenance requirements. Furthermore, as Swift doors open, the vehicle drivers have full line of sight of the door position and external surroundings at all times, which statistically results in significantly less incidents of damage to vehicles or doors when compared to vertically operating doors.

Jewers’ Regional Sales Manager; Ben Pritchard commented: 
“Jewers Doors have been approved for installation by many government agencies in the Middle East, and it was an honour to be specified by GHD Consultants, and selected by Al Naboodah Construction Group LLC to complete this hugely prestigious project for the Expo 2020.
“Recent installations include four new fire stations for Dubai Civil Defence and refurbishment to the existing Fire Station at Dubai DryDocks. The Middle East is a very buoyant market at the moment and we look forward to completing further projects in the future.”
