    Have you tried a metal fabrication shop? They should be able to make a door that fits your needs.

    Sorry to report that Grumman went out of business many years ago (sometime around 1990 -91 I think). KME bought all the design patents to the old Grumman Stuff (Fire Cat) and currently builds aerial's here in Roanoke, VA. They used to be in the old Grumman facility, but if I remember correctly KME has since built their own place & moved out of the old Grumman plant.

    Several of the old Grumman employees started their own company M&W Fire Apparatus in Vinton VA - you might want to contact them.

    Otherwise any local sheet metal shop or fabricator should be able to fix you up.

    You may contact your local KME rep if the above options fail.


    Best of luck.

    N2DFire is correct MW fire is your best bet anyone can make but them. MW uses the same style as Grumman did on thier hinged doors.

    No problem - glad M&W could get you fixed up. From what dealings I have had with them - they are a first rate group of folks.
