Door Industry Journal - Spring 2022

Also online at: 85 THE door industry journal spring 2022 Industrial Doors & Shutters EXPO 2020 Opens New Doors for Jewers Jewers Doors completed the installation of sixteen sets of Phoenix Swift bi-folding doors for the newly constructed Fire and Ambulance stations at the $6.9 billion Expo 2020 Project in Dubai. Expo 2020, which runs for 182 days, opened its doors on the 1st of October 2021, almost a full year late due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and runs until the end of March 2022. This is the first time the World Expo has been held in the Middle East. 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 four vehicle access bays in each of the fire and ambulance service stations. All doors were manufactured at Jewers’ Bedfordshire factory, shipped to the 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 minimal maintenance requirements. Furthermore, as Swift doors open, the vehicle drivers always have a full line of sight of the door position and external surroundings, which statistically results in significantly fewer incidents of damage to vehicles or doors when compared to vertically operating doors. Jewers have also been awarded the Service contract for this site; their Dubai based team will maintain the doors on a 6-monthly basis. Interested in appearing in the Summer Edition?
