Located near Cholet in France, MCD has been manufacturing aluminium roller shutter for dedicated firefighting and commercial vehicles since 1989.
Associating both the qualities of craftsmanship and precision of industrial production, MCD export throughout the world. Today, MCD’s market fulfils 95% of the national requirements and is the most important shutter supplier for fire protection vehicles in Europe, Middle East and Asia in about 45 countries with 17,000 shutters produced a year.
The ALU40 roll-up door is made to measure with double walled installable slats of extruded aluminium of 40mm height. The product can be delivered in different RAL colour by powder coating treatment or anodised finish.
The most important aspect of this shutter is the perfect balancing of the door which allows the user to open it with only one finger. Furthermore, MCD deliver it in standard installation in separated parts or as a pre-assembled shutter called ‘IZY system’ in order to save installation time for body builder and to be sure the product will be installed following MCD installation guidelines; only 20 minutes of installation is needed per door!
The product can be personalised using the name and the design of the customer to feature on the handle thanks to a specific mould for customers.
With 27 years of experience in this field, MCD work in collaboration with its customers and offer a complete range of options to match every request. A full range has been developed and improved year after year. This includes the following:
- LED light system integrated to the shutter for compartment lighting
- Different sensors systems available for automatic activation of the compartment light when opening
- Electric locking system to close all the doors of a vehicle at the same time and provide quick opening for firefighter
Different closing systems are also available following tender specifications. Research and innovation is the principal motive of the company. MCD develops and improves the actual product to deliver better and new solutions to the body builder throughout the year. The last improvement which was implemented by the end of 2015 was a lighting drip channel to supply vehicles outside area lighting.
