"IT'S MORE THAN JUST A DOOR"
With eleven (11) of the most common yet rarely mastered realistic forcible entry functions, four (4) of which are patented.
It is the only door that is completely mobile without any dis-assembly. It allows you to use real "K" and "R" tools with our patented lock simulators that can be re-used upwards of 60-80 times before replacement is necessary; with a through-the-lock simulator and real commercial store front dead bolts to go with it.
Used for cutting up to ¾" #6 rebar
at three different heights and angles. This feature simulates cutting security bars on doors and windows so that access can be gained. Also provides great opportunity for K-12 saw training time and to teach proper body ergonomics when using the K-12 in different positions to lessen fatigue and risk of injury.
Used to cut and pull commercial hinges, pull hinge pins, and cut
flat plate up to 5" x 3/8" thick. Using flat plate is just as realistic and is a much cheaper alternative to hinges.
Used to show how to cut, strike and break the many different types of keyed and combination locks sometimes encountered on doors, gates and hatches.
Use your "K" tool as designed and pull our commercial rim style lock simulators. These simulators can and have been pulled as many as 60-80 times (depending on how overly aggressive the user is) before replacement is necessary.
Use your "R" tool as designed and pull our commercial/residential dead bolt style lock simulators. These simulators can and have been pulled as many as 60-80 times (depending on how overly aggressive the user is) before replacement is necessary.
This simulator allows the student/FF to actually manipulate real commercial store front and residential dead bolt latch mechanisms after the lock simulators have been pulled to complete the through the lock forcible entry task.
This feature demonstrates plunge cutting steel commercial doors with a K-12 saw that utilize panic bar hardware. Use a framing square through the cut groove and hook and release the panic bar thus opening the door. You can achieve up to 25 cuts in each plate before replacement is necessary. This feature may also be used with glass or plexiglass for meeting other NFPA 1001 JPR's for window forcible entry.
Real operating panic bar used in conjunction with the plunge cutting simulator described above.
Designed for all Hydraulic Rabbet tools both manual and battery operated. (THE DOOR IS NOT DESIGNED FOR BATTERING RAM USE)
This feature uses an automatic realistic spring loaded 3/4" latch bolt and a wooden 2x2 for realistic resistance breaching. This feature may be used with or without the wooden 2"x2"
This feature uses an automatic realistic spring loaded 3/4" latch bolt and a wooden 2x2 for realistic resistance breaching. This feature may be used with or without the wooden 2"x2" as well.
Allows for safe, smooth and quick movement of the simulator over the roughest terrain and are flat spot resistant when left on its wheels for storage.
Our newest optional feature for the Challenger Forcible Entry Door is "The Carriage Bolt head grinding/cutting fixture" for use with your K-12 saw is used to practice grinding off carriage head bolts that are encountered on doors with drop bar brackets that use these types of bolts to secure the brackets to the doors. The fixture slides and secures into the existing plunge cut window channel in the door. The fixture can hold up to 42 bolts at one time, once the front plate is cut up it can be unbolted, turned over and the back side used. With an average of 6-8 cuts per hole before the front "consumable" plate needs to be replaced. That is an average of 504 cuts before replacement of the plate is needed (42 square holes x 2 sides = 84 x 6 cuts per hole = 504 cuts/bolts). The fixture comes with 2 plates for a total of 1008 cuts for only $349.00. Replacement plates can be ordered at $80.00 each plus shipping.
This 3rd wheel mobility system allows for quick, safe and easier movement of the door with out any dis-assembly.
The door is also designed so that it can pass through standard exterior steel doors with widths measuring 34" or wider and heights of 82" or taller.
The door uses very minimal and inexpensive consumables considering all of its functions. In fact it currently only cost an average of a little over $3.80 per student/FF to complete 10 of the features/functions on the simulator (not including store bought locks for the lock cutting/breaking simulator, the many different styles, sizes and strengths affect the cost)
Why buy multiple, expensive, and separate props when you can have eleven (11) of the most challenging and realistic forcible entry techniques all on one quality built system.
Most importantly it is completely mobile without any dis-assembly required. It is even shipped assembled with a 1 year craftsmanship warranty and an initial starter set of consumables, a $390.00 retail value.
