As fire departments think about the components required on a custom fire truck, one anticipated decision involves choosing between hinged or roll-up doors for fire truck compartments.

The choice of either hinged and roll-up doors depends on the type of missions a fire department responds to, and the required compartmentation's functional and operational needs.

Part of this decision often includes a review of the following questions:

  • What are the construction differences?
  • What safety and operational considerations are important?
  • What additional door features should be considered?
  • What is the look or appearance desired?
