Jewers Doors engineers and manufactures the Phoenix range of high-quality industrial folding doors for railway facilities.

Doors are created from highly engineered components and comply with stringent European safety standards. The company has carried out projects worldwide, including in the UK, Qatar, the UAE, Australia, Malaysia and New Zealand.

Folding railway depot doors

Swift-SEW bi-folding doors have been created for depots incorporating taller openings, overhead electrification wires and tracks that run through the door. They are suitable for daily operational demands and high safety standards for modern railway maintenance depots.

Purpose-designed drive systems for bi-folding industrial doors

The design of the Swift-SEW is based on the original Swift door, which is a traditional four-fold door. It incorporates heavy-duty hardware and a powerful central drive unit that operates alongside a programmable smart relay control board (PLC) with built-in inverter. This creates a smooth, safe and future-proof door system for any railway maintenance depot building.

Swift-SEW doors can be integrated with building management systems (BMS), depot protection systems (DPS), heating, ventilation or air-conditioning (HVAC), and train wash plant to create ultimate control. A visual display on the door control panel provides real-time status or error reporting to the user, and with an IOT interface to enable Jewers’ HQ to connect directly to the door for complete visibility.

Versatile multi-leaf sliding folding doors

The Swift-SEW door will accommodate openings up to 5m wide. For wider openings, the Osprey is the ideal solution. Powered operation is available for doors up to 20m width while there is no limit to the width for manually operated Osprey doors, which would typically be used for across railway traversers or wider depot openings.

Jewers Doors’ solutions deliver robustness and durability, with the Phoenix range offering aesthetic appeal with advanced technical features. Products offer railway facilities a comprehensive solution that provides reliability while complementing its surroundings.
