Fitting Fire Vehicle Roller Shutters – Amdac – Carmichael UK

When Amdac-Carmichael manufactured their latest Fire tenders for export to Africa, they needed a bespoke Fire Vehicle Roller Shutters System that would cope with the extreme temperatures and conditions they would have to face on a daily basis. 

As one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of Aluminium Vehicle Roller Shutters in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Dover Vanguard holds a reputation for thinking outside the box and was the instant answer to the problems that Amdac-Carmichael faced.

Senior Sales Executive Garry Cannon, looked at the issues of expansion due to high temperatures that the Fire tenders would face on a daily basis and the extreme stresses the roller shutter systems would be placed under. By modifying the build and fitting he was able to supply the same quality, that is standard with the N35 and has come to be known as one of the best shutters in the industry, but in a way that would enable a bespoke solution to the issues it may face.

Due to the modified build and fitting, Dover Vanguard travelled to the Amdac-Carmichael  factory in Worcester, UK to demonstrate and fit the new Vehicle Roller Shutters to the Fire Tender and give the staff an overview of how the system would work. The new emergency vehicles have now been exported and will be commissioned for use later this month.

Garry Cannon said “With every job, we analysis and manufacture the best solution to our customers needs and requirements. Whether it is unusual builds or adapting to environmental factors we continue to innovate and lead the way in emergency vehicle roller shutter systems.”

Dover Installs New 2EB Door

A customer traveled all the way from the state of Iowa to Upper Sandusky, Ohio (over 600 miles) to have a new aluminum roller shutter door installed in his vehicle.

Dover Roller Shutters removed the existing door and installed a new 2EB roller shutter to the rear of a service truck.  The removal and install took about three hours and the customer was on his way back to Iowa.

The 2EB is designed to span the larger openings and the use of the Double Handle Lock provided a secure easy access to the rear compartment.

Once the customer returned home he wrote, “I just wanted to take a minute and send a note thanking you and your company for the help you gave me. You guys went above and beyond!  Please pass along my thanks to your boss.  Rob.”

Another happy customer.

Dover Roller Shutters USA Installs Rolling Steel

Dover Roller Shutters USA personnel installed a 22 foot wide by 14 foot high rolling steel door on a barn in central Ohio.  This is the first rolling steel Dover has installed in the last five years and is indicative in one of the many directions Dover is heading in the future.

A solution was needed by the customer to close off the north side of the barn from the weather elements.  Barn swing doors were previously used but had been blown off several times leaving the animals inside exposed to the weather (especially in the Winter time).  The door was designed to take heavier wind loads with wind locks provided on every slat.

The install went well and another customer is happy.
