Context

When the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was planned, the project included a 7-bay fire/ambulance station. Unlike previous appliance bay designs, a garden-style theme was used to enable the buildings to harmonise with the green surrounding and the nearby theme park.

Work undertaken

14 electric folding doors were required, and Bolton Gate was consulted to assist with the design, which included 64 Lexan vision panels and 8 faux louvres to each door; a special Forest Green powder coating was applied to the metalwork.

In addition, the doors had to be designed to resist typhoon loadings of up to 3Kpa which required solenoid shootbolts to engage at the base to maintain the door leaves in the bottom track.

The doors were manufactured in Bolton and shipped to Hong Kong where they were installed by local agent Deacon, with whom Bolton Gate had worked since the 1960s.
