One of my favourite projects over recent years has been the complete restoration of a Liverpool built 50′ wheeled fire escape.
The escape arrived at the workshop in a very sorry state, the wheels had collapsed and one was missing its axle box, the ladder was rotten and collapsing in places and all the metal work was rusting heavily, shedding its paint.
As a result we had to near enough start from scratch.
New naves for the escape.
