Friction Force Door Prop
ETS Forcible Entry Training Program


The Friction Force Forcible Entry Training Door was designed by firefighters with the knowledge of the punishment that they put on their equipment. Fire Fighters train like they work. Most other training props cannot withstand the constant full force that is required.


Friction Force Forcible Entry Training Door with its unique patented friction device can be set to simulate a variety of door types with 3000 psi available. The pressure ratings were determined by extensive field testing on actual doors in a variety of settings.


Friction Force Forcible Entry Training Door is designed to allow for all aspects of forcible entry. Even the baseball swing can be performed using this product.


Adjustments can be made on this product with a simple turn of the handle. No tools required.
