Maxiflex Overhead Sectional Doors Product Of Choice For Fire Emergency Services

Overhead sectional doors from Maxiflex

Sectional overhead doors supplied to Ivory Park Fire Station by Maxiflex are built to highest standards for optimal performance over a long life cycle.

It is crucial that fire station doors operate ultra-reliably and efficiently at all times to ensure that in an emergency, fire trucks are able to leave the station without delay.

The rugged and attractive OH1042F overhead sectional doors from Maxiflex are defined by all-round efficiency, reliability, convenience and safety making them the products of choice for three Johannesburg fire stations.

Built to the highest standards, these doors deliver optimal performance over a long life cycle with subsequent lowest possible operational costs. The doors feature wind-resistant reinforced panels for optimum functioning even in the most adverse of weather conditions. The joint design ensures better load distribution and butyl sealing with unbroken corners provide maximum tightness for excellent insulation.

During the upgrade of the Randburg Fire Station in Johannesburg four years ago, strict specifications called for highly reliable and efficient doors with a modern, attractive and unique appearance. Maxiflex’s overhead sectional doors met all the specifications and the fire station did not hesitate in placing an order for a total of ten doors.

The stipulation for reliability and efficiency also extended to the supplier and here too Maxiflex delivered. “The Randburg Fire Station was impressed with our product and service,” says Managing Director of Maxiflex, Bram Janssen. “We were subsequently approached by Ivory Park and Alexandra Fire Stations for assistance with their door solutions. Once again the high specifications of our overhead sectional doors made them the products of choice for these two fire emergency services.”

Maxiflex supplied six doors each to Ivory Park and Alexandra Fire Stations in Q3 and Q4 2017 respectively. Janssen explains that space constraints at the Ivory Park fire station necessitated modification to the track system on the big doors to enable them to pass under one another in the open position.

Station commander at the Ivory Park facility, Andries Makua, confirms his extreme satisfaction with the doors as well as with the service from Maxiflex. “They quickly and effectively resolved a few teething problems presented by the bypass system during installation and I am happy to report that the doors are now operating perfectly.”

To ensure correct operation of the doors, which is fundamental to optimal functioning and extended product life cycle, Maxiflex provided all necessary product training. “We received reports from both fire stations that they were impressed with the look and efficiency that the doors provide,” concludes Janssen.

Available in different sizes, window configurations and colours as well as offering a choice of locks and handles, these aesthetic doors will enhance the appearance of any building. The overhead sectional doors are part of ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems’ product portfolio.

Maxiflex’s turnkey industrial entrance solutions meet a multitude of applications across diverse industries – from mining and automotive manufacturing to food and beverage, hospitality and pharmaceutical. The product offering includes: A range of industrial sectional doors; vertical-lifting fabric doors for large openings and heavy-industry environments; loading dock equipment; PVC strip curtains; protection screens and impact doors.
