Over the June 9th weekend, AMDOR attended the Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC Fire Expo in Victoria, BC. It was exciting for us to see our products featured in the booths of so many bodybuilders. Our team is always on the hunt for interesting trucks and new technologies, and the show did not disappoint!
AMDOR attended the 2018 Pacific Northwest Fire Expo in Portland, Oregon recently, and several trucks caught a great deal of attention. One of them is the fire truck pictured below from the Royal Slope Fire Department located in Grant County Washington, just North East of Yakima.
We attended the largest fire and emergency trade show in Canada a couple of weeks ago, and it was a pleasure to see innovation at work in the ever-evolving emergency vehicle landscape. While the types of vehicles and equipment on display varied, there was one concept in particular that caught our eye: the Halrai vehicle. Developed in partnership with the MTC and Halrai, this innovative and cost-effective concept is designed as a flexible platform that can be adapted for multiple transportation uses. In this case, it's a carrier for all of the equipment and tools required for a fire and rescue mission, organized in neat, compartmentalized drawers. It also happens to be completely fitted with our LED lighting solution, the Luma Bar.
When it comes to building door solutions for the Canadian transportation industry, WHITING® Canada is setting standards. As North America’s original roll-up door manufacturer, they recognized early on that truck roll-up doors operate in some of the harshest conditions. Prone to extreme wear and tear on rollers, hinges, springs, and tracks, roll-up doors are opened and closed with every delivery they make. Not to mention the constant banging and clanging of whatever objects pass their way. That’s why WHITING® Doors are designed to be durable and long-lasting. If you want to reduce the amount of downtime required for the maintenance and repair of your roll-up door, then keep reading! In this article, we share a few ways to keep you and your truck on the road, not in the shop.

It is widely known that Whiting Door Manufacturing launched the first practical roll-up door for trucks and trailers in 1953. It is not as well known that Whiting’s Met L Wood laminates division is one of the largest suppliers of swing doors in the truck and trailer industry. These two operations along with Whiting’s global network of licensees makes Whiting the largest manufacturer of truck and trailer doors in the world. This blog will quickly cover the differences between swing doors and roll-up doors.
Whiting Door introduced the first practical overhead style roll-up door to the North American truck and trailer market in the early 1950s. Aluminum shutter style roll-up doors first appeared in the European emergency vehicle market decades ago and quickly achieved widespread market adoption. Shutter style doors did not appear in North America until the 1980s and saw very slow adoption rates. Traditional markets such as the fire service can be very slow to adopt new technologies. Early detractors felt that shutter style doors were prone to several issues including leakage, jamming and simply occupied too much space. Over the years, market competition has led to significant improvements addressing these objections. In general, the advantages of shutter doors can be wrapped up into 4 categories: Safety, efficiency, reduced propensity for damage and weight savings.
