  • E-One Replacement Compartment Door


    Had one of my drivers drive out with a compartment door open, snagged it on the building....

    Bent up 2 garage/bay doors and trashed a 29"x49" compartment door on the engine.

    We are able to repair the building damage with minimal cost but am not sure how to go about replacing the compartment door.

    Any suggestions...

    Call E one with serial number of truck they should have blueprint on file for what size door and order one.

      Stupid me, I did the same thing when our truck was very new. Manufacturer sent a perfect fit, as noted above.

      Wasn't cheap. Took a while to live that one down.

        Hence the reason to buy roll ups. :-]

        I think that at one time everyone with hinged doors has done the same thing.
        Had a nearby dept do that and took out the center masonry pillar between the bays. Dropped both doors on top of the trucks.

        Other wise do what dashman suggested call E-one and your insurance company.

          E-Ones work with SO (shop order) numbers, so you will need that more than the serial number for a replacement door.

          As islandfire03 said, next time spec what doesn't hit buildings, ROM roll-up doors. hehe

            FireMech, didn't this thread remind you of discussion we had recently about this very subject?

              I thought that's what the big red light in the center of the dash overhead was for?

              E-One can supply a replacement door with either the SO number or the VIN number. Both on the label on the drivers door post.

                  Indianapolis, right now. Back to OMA tomorrow night, and right on to Carroll, Ia. Thanks again for a super get-together, short as it was.

                    Why would they go there??? Obviously they don't learn anything there.

                    Got with some "people" today. I won't have any more problems with Central. hehe

                    Even though your visit was short, I hope you enjoyed yourself, as I did.

                      Be ready to "pay through the nose". We had a door on our tanker get hit by MA Dept. couple of years back and it was not a "cheap" fix. E-One does great work but they are awful proud of their product!

                        Sorry, I didn't say it more clearly. You asked where the people who like swing doors were. I answered with where one of them was (me).

                            I just climbed into another of my department's engines to swap thermal imagers for service, and noticed the red lens and light bulb for their compartment open light sitting on the doghouse...

                            At least it has roll-ups...
