Fire Facilities Inc Now Offers Forcible Door Accessories to Enhance Training Experiences

SUN PRAIRIE, WI – Fire Facilities Inc. (FFI), has introduced new forcible door accessories for fire training towers. The dependable entry doors are offered to enhance training experiences for fire departments, public safety training facilities and military use.

            Manufactured by Breaching Technologies Inc. (BTI), the field-proven breach products are now available from Fire Facilities to provide more realistic and flexible training options in their training towers for forcible entry exercises. Fire Facilities now offers the Explosive, Pry and Ram-Pry breaching door products.

            “Forcible entry doors truly make training experiences more realistic,” says Aaron Adams, president of Fire Facilities Inc. “These doors are engineered and built to withstand the rigors of lifelike, real world training. The good news is the doors can be added to our existing training facilities or requested when placing a new order.”

Lifelike Training

            The Explosive Breaching Door is offered to fit especially with tactical towers. The inward swinging door can simulate up to a four-lock set using the locking system built into the door along with the expendable preaching pins. The explosive breaching pins are designed to simulate resistance to a maximum 400-grain breaching charge. The door itself is skinned with high-density polyethylene to reduce the risk of fragmentation and corrosion from explosive exposure.

            The Pry Breaching Door is mainly for the use fire training towers. It opens outward and can simulate up to a three-lock set using the built-in locking system and patented BTI breaching pins. The pins are made to simulate breaching wood, metal and reinforced frames. In addition to breaching pins, the pry door uses a low-cost wood insert to accept the use of a Halligan tool or similar type of prying tool.

            Finally, the Ram-Pry Breaching Door works well for towers that require both tactical and fire training within the same structure. The versatile inward and outward opening door includes expendable breaching pins along with wood inserts. It offers realistic ram and pry breach training and uses a low-cost wood insert to accept the use of a Halligan tool or other similar prying tools.

            This specific Ram-Pry Breaching Door was recently installed on a custom Fire Chief training model from Fire Facilities requested by the Nebraska Army National Guard for their training site in Hastings, Nebraska. It’s expected the Ram-Pry Door will be incorporated into the unit’s live-fire training, search and rescue, rappelling and helicopter rescue scenarios.

From mobile units to burn rooms to high-rise towers, FFI training models are available in a multitude of configurations.
