Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service in partnership with Torverk Industrial Doors

In partnership with Torverk Industrial Doors, British door specialist HAG Ltd. assisted Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service to replace their industrial doors that had been in place for over 30 years.

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service have 61 fire stations serving their local community of 1.45 million people in the South West of England. Alongside emergency response, their work focuses on prevention, protection and resilience – working for and with their community to ensure that local people are as safe as they can be.


This is a true testimony to the excellent quality products that Torverk offer, as their doors are designed to be opened at least 2.6 million times due to their dedication to building doors designed to last for many years. HAG Ltd. was chosen to work with Torverk to install these products due their market leading reputation amongst the emergency services in the UK and additionally their existing relationship with Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service. HAG Ltd have been maintaining their 61 sites for over 10 years.

HAG Ltd. have worked alongside Torverk for 20 years. They pride themselves on giving the customer a solution that is both economical and practical for the future, an ethos that mirrors that of Torverk. Torverk was established by Sven-Åke Sundberg in 1962, so combined with HAG, we have 95 years of door industry experience between us.

The Project:

Reliable station doors and a thorough maintenance contract is a must to ensure that crews are available to respond to emergency calls 24 hours a day.

HAG were tasked over the summer with fitting Q Doors to 4 of their fire stations, which provide a high level of thermal insulation, long term cost savings, security and cosmetically enhances the look of the building.

This is a flexible bi-folding product, for example, if there were space restrictions, we have the ability to fit them externally thus giving more room in the actual appliance bays.  There are several options to make your Q Door bespoke to your particular needs, for example insulated double glazed windows within the door panels, the colour, and manual or electric operation.

The Q Doors sealing system complies with top European requirements, and still met them at 3 times the required test pressure! (The top European class 3 for air leakage describes air leakage (T Value) as at best 1.5m3/m2/h at 50 Pa pressure. i.e. 1.5m3/m2/h to 150 Pa).

HAG is continuing to provide regular maintenance and keep the door working well and enabling the customer to meet its legal obligations.
