New Doors for a Historic Fire Station

Constructed in 1916 the D.C. Fire Department Engine No. 3 is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It houses The D.C. Fire and E.M.S. Museum that displays D.C. Fire and E.M.S. history dating back to the 1700s. When looking to replace the old wooden doors on the building it was important that the new doors would have the same look to preserve the building’s historical importance. Electric Power Door was able to create a custom solution that retains the look of the previous wooden doors. The doors have an arched top to fit the opening perfectly. One of the doors is manually operated and the other two are hydraulically operated.
