Force plates are an essential piece of firefighting equipment for effective training on forcible entry. Force plates are made to be attached to doors of owned training buildings/facilities so that you can get many forces on the same door by breaking only wood slats and the locks themselves. All methods of forcible entry–using the fork, adze, or baseball swing–will work with force plates. This complete kit comes with everything you need to install the force plates and all of the equipment can be stored in the tool box for the next training session.
Force Plates have been tested across the USA by certified forcible entry instructors. These plates were designed by firefighter Robert James and are patent-pending.
