BID Group’s replacement of appliance and ancillary bay vehicle doors at Tweedale Fire Station in Telford has been completed successfully without disrupting the operation of a busy Fire Station. The new doors will increase response time and improve the overall aesthetic of the site.

Working alongside the Fire Service and PSG Shropshire Council, the project was to replace six front and rear appliance bay doors with new Sectional overhead doors. An additional two doors were fitted on the Fire Station Garage.

Antony Haynes – Technical Sales Manager at BID Group said; “Fire station bay doors serve a number of functions: allowing quick and safe egress of fire apparatus; sealing in heat and keeping out cold and inclement weather; and lending a visual appeal to the aesthetics of the building. Bid Group have a range of sectional overhead doors perfect for a variety of applications with a choice of lift types, colour finish and vision panels. This high quality, strong and robust insulated door is suitable for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications.

The security, robust and weather protective nature of the doors are ideal for fire and ambulance stations, loading bays, storage units and distribution centres” Richard Thornton, Station Commander at Shropshire Fire Service gave thanks to PSG and BID Group for their services.

BID Group sectional doors are available in all sizes with manual or electric operation and a range of optional extras including different plastisol colours, vision panels and personnel doors.
