1969: Fire Protecting Rolling Door T120

Effertz in the Guinness Book of Records

In the 1981 German issue of the Guinness Book of Records Effertz was mentioned with the largest fire rolling doors in Europe, possibly in the world, with a width of 20 metres and a hight of 14 metres. They were hauled up with two heavy-duty mobile cranes into their final position in the Schaubühne (theatre) in Berlin before the roof was closed.
