Halligan and Sledge hammers are used in multiple service areas for breaching doors in life threatening situations.  The proper method of opening a door using these tools must be learned through training aides, with none better than the APB Door.  Whether using actual door locks or wooden dowels, there is no more realistic training than this.

Fire departments utilize sledge hammers to gain access to structures during entry. Training with sledge hammers prior to structure fires can be difficult when not using the APB Door.
