Frequently Asked Questions
Why Are There 2 Doors?
Another very important feature of the Multi-Force door is that we have two swinging doors. This feature allows firefighters to force doors that swing to the left as well as doors that swing to the right. As we all know, the gapping techniques as well as the spiking techniques or (baseball swing as some call it), are completely different for left-hand swinging doors as opposed to right-hand swinging doors. Having both left and right-hand swinging doors gives the firefighter tremendous advantage in being able to practice the different ways that the gapping technique and spiking techniques are applied depending on the swing of the door.
Example: If you had a prop with only one door and you wanted to practice the spiking method (also known as the baseball swing method), you would only be able to swing the spike of the halligan bar into the wood jamb simulator from one particular side! That would be great if every inward-opening door with a wooden jamb that we encounter in the real world, at a real fire, opened the same way you practiced. But guess what, 50% of the time the door swings from the opposite side. You need to practice your left-handed swing as well as your right-handed swing. Let’s face it, we all have a weaker swing from one side as opposed to the other. This two-door feature allows you to improve your swing greatly from your weaker side, as well as make your strong side swing even stronger.
Remember also that the gapping method used on an inward-opening metal jamb door is also different for left and right-hand swinging doors.
The importance of having two doors on a forcible-entry prop to simulate these scenarios that you will encounter, cannot be overstated.
