Awesome Forcible Entry Simulator Options

When it comes to firefighters who put their life in harms way and respond fast and furious to other's in need, proper training is a necessity. In fact, before you can become an active duty firefighter you need to spend about 600 hours in training.

We are proud to offer 2 models of the Forcible Entry Simulator which helps amp up your training so those real-life scenarios can't and won't trip you up.

Fire Departments rave about it. "Unfortunately, forcible entry training is hard to do without destroying someones door. We purchased this prop so that we can train our firefighters on all aspects of forcible entry. If you don't know what you are doing, a door can make you look like a fool very easily. Now with this prop, our firefighters are able to train on forcing doors, windows and window bars without any additional cost. The units is resettable and does not require dowels or wood. I highly recommend this unit and would promote it to anyone interested in purchasing it." - Bing, Boyertown PA

The first model , shown above, is designed to train firefighters in a realistic scenario. It can reset in seconds and you can practice again and again and train many firefighters fast and efficiently. The door is fully mobile and weighs a hefty 600-700lbs. The door can be set to be outward or inward swinging making sure your firefighters are efficient in all door situations. This great training product can be used again and again and is made with hardened steel for long lasting impact resistance and longevity.

Check out this video which shows you exactly how it works.

Another model we have available is this one.

Entirely based upon your needs you can choose the simulator that best suits your department. Learn all about how this TheFireStore Exclusive Forcible Entry Simulator works by watching this video.

Up your training game with these Forcible Entry Simulators. Remember, products come in 4-8 weeks direct from the manufacturer so keep that in mind when ordering for your special training days.
