This patented door system provides the ability to force left or right-handed, opening in or opening out doors, metal or wood jambs.  All on the same door system.  You can even use angle iron on the door to simulate high security apartment doors.

This door allows you to use the gapping method and conventional forcible entry methods on opening-in metal jams (like on apartment doors).  Hydra-Rams & Rabbit Tools can also be used.

Opening-out forcible entry on metal jambs can also be used (like on commercial buildings or bulkhead doors).  Also, you can use the spiking method on the wood jamb simulator (like on private dwelling doors). 

In addition, the door is used every year to train over 300 firefighters at Fire Engineering's FDIC HOT (Hands-On Training) Forcible Entry Class in Indiana.

“Watch the video and you’ll see what we mean.”   Thank you.

When you don't have the room to strike the back of the halligan with a flatheaded axe, use the technique displayed in this training tip. This type of obstacle is typically found on inward opening doors found at the bottom of interior basement stairs.

Article From The East Brandywine Fire Company's Website

On Sunday five East Brandywine volunteers traveled to New York to pick up The Multi-Force Forcible Entry Door System.

Chief's Aide Kevin Shaffer said "the decision to purchase the prop was made after recently training on Lionville Fire Company's prop". Shaffer said "Everyone who trained on the prop that evening commented on the quality of the product".

According to Training Officer Chris Keen, "It would have been easy to have the door prop shipped, however we wanted to take advantage of the invaluable training provided by the creator of the prop and owner of the Company Mike Perrone".

Captain Vince D'Amico said "Mike was great! We learned more about forcible entry in 3 hours then we could have in a week at a formal forcible entry class"

Mike is a 32 year veteran of FDNY and has been assigned to Ladder 175 for more then 25 years.

FF Savastana who was part of the team that went to New York added, "Mike and his wife Doreen made us feel very welcomed, following training Doreen bought pizza and we had an opportunity learn more about Mike's career and the Company".

Prior to leaving PSO Dane Edwards asked Mike to sign East Brandywine's prop. PSO Edwards "said the idea was important for two reasons: the quality of the product speaks for itself, but more importantly Mike was a phenomenal resource who quickly became a friend".

The Officers and Members of East Brandywine Fire Company would like to thank the following:

Firehouse Innovations Corp. (Mike and Doreen Perrone) for not only providing a great product but also being so accommodating.

Lionville Fire Company who allowed us to train on their prop previously

The team of 5 volunteers who took their Sunday to go to New York.

And lastly the East Brandywine Township Supervisors whose donation made this purchase possible.

Watch a News story by WNYT Channel 3 Albany about east coast firefighters giving training in New York. Mike and the Multi-Force Door is displayed. Watch Mike's interview when 25 seconds is left on the video.

Thanks to everyone who came by our booth at the Long Island Mega Fire/EMS show at the Nassau Coliseum. We hope you got a chance to see the door up close and try it out.
