August 8, 2014
The best fire department garage doors in North Carolina are manufactured by ArmRLite. Fire departments are one of the most important buildings in a community and are often one of the most stunning and memorable. As a home or lodge for heroes, a fire department must be designed and built for maximum efficiency, strength, and longevity.
North Carolina Fire Department Garage Doors: Empie Park
In April of 2011 construction started on the new Empie Fire Department in Wilmington, North Carolina. The original fire station had to be demolished due to mold and a new 9,000 square-foot facility was slated to replace it. The fire department garage doors at Empie Park were manufactured by ArmRLite and chosen for their unmatched strength and durability.
The welded construction of an ArmRLite door ensures firefighters and first responders are able to perform their jobs for decades without the issue of sagging, poorly constructed, and high maintenance doors. Crawford Door of Wilmington installed the ArmRLite glass garage doors at Empie Park and helped the $2 million dollar project to finish on time and within budget. The fire department garage doors fabricated for Empie Park were clear anodized with a 20 year warranty finish and welded frame construction, contained 7/16” insulated gray tinted low E tempered glass, and were wind load tested at 48psf.
