Case Studies

  • Research carried out by Crofton Engineering, over many years, into the requirements for the training of fire fighters has produced products designed to conform to current guidance on safety in Drill Towers, Training Buildings and Simulators whilst also maintaining the basic need to provide a practical training facility.

  • Our wide range of Towers, Buildings and Structures (designed to suit every budget) are employed in over 450 Fire Stations and Emergency Services Training Centres throughout the British Isles and abroad, and with constant use over many years, have proved robust and durable. The demands of diverse site conditions are catered for in the design, making our Fire Training Buildings the primary choice in many areas.

  • The full product range includes Fire Drill Towers, Cold Smoke and USAR Buildings and recently introduced Fire Behaviour Training Simulators.

  • Our Towers can also provide: mounting facilities for telecommunication aerials; accommodate abseiling or rope rescue practice or be customised to a particular working at height training need.
  • We have extensive experience of working closely with Architects and Design Engineers to solve unusual problems and have developed a comprehensive and skilled site installation service.  Crofton’s own erection crew install our Towers, on a ready prepared base, in just one day; causing minimum disruption to either construction sites or busy operational Fire Stations. The tough steel construction, with a choice of special anti-corrosion treatment can minimise any need for servicing and gives a virtually indefinite life. This is particularly important where exposure to hostile weather is encountered in some of the farthest reaches of the British Isles.
