Jewers Specialist Doors
Phoenix doors open to the world - literally. From
train depots to ambulance and fire stations to
helicopter, light aircraft and army tank hangars
to retail loading bays, power stations and heavy
industrial projects - the Phoenix range of Swift,
Osprey and Kingfisher doors have been installed
on such projects across the globe.
Phoenix doors are your 24/7 choice for strength,
reliability and efficiency.

When the speed of opening is
critical, the Phoenix range of doors
work fast every time.
Swift bi-folding doors open fully in less than
seven seconds and, because all Phoenix
range doors open horizontally, the driver of
the vehicle can see exactly when it is safe to
exit or enter. Expensive and time consuming
damage to doors or vehicles - a common
characteristic of other door types - is a thing
of the past.
Emergency service doors must also be
reliable - 100% reliable. Phoenix doors open
time after time. For new build or
refurbishment, Phoenix doors come in three
models; Swift, Osprey and Kingfisher, which
are available in a wide range of sizes,
configurations and architectural
appearances to suit any building.

garage doors and gates, and are CE marked.
Safety features to manually operated doors include easy-grip handles,
anti-slip threshold plates, full height finger trap seals, toe protection,
and non-breakable windows. In electric and automatic operation,
Phoenix doors offer increased opening and closing safety. Electro
sensitive and pressure sensitive protective equipment around the
opening, instant low level manual override devices and the slowing
down of door leaves during final closure can be selected to give
complete peace of mind.
Designed for today’s world
Phoenix doors now have a much reduced carbon footprint. All models
use CFC-free foam insulation and leaner manufacturing techniques create
Doors are constructed using 52mm insulated steel panels, and fitted with
multi-wall rubber seals to all edges, reducing water, air and dust ingress.
Installed doors offer U-values as low as 0.9W/m2/°C. This optimum
thermal efficiency combined with fast operating speeds reduces heat loss
and can dramatically reduce the building’s energy usage.
Looking to the future, life expectancy of Phoenix doors is in excess of
20 years, with older examples still in service. At the end of their life more
than 80% of the door can be recycled.
