    Default Most metal Iíve personally seen in a vault wall

    A few pics I took of a door and frame I tackled out of a basement in Barkley Sq London a few years ago. Most metal Iíve personally seen in the walls. Luckily a demolition company was taking down the walls. I also had to take out 2 big Tannís from inside the vault and a couple of bookroom doors.
    This is also my first post, as Iíve just joined. So unsure how the pics are going to look as I just had to compress them 50% online to put on here.

    Welcome Dorien that's a lot of steel in there, don't envy you taking that lump out either! The door looks quite an unusual one.

    Yeah I donít know what make it was. It all had to come up this old lift shaft too. Had to take the doors off the Tannís to make them under 3 ton. Was quite a big job.

    Had no idea Tann's carried on the Anchor Reliance as late as that, I always think of the old stuff with brass fittings and makers plates. I can see the hinges look like tann's, but what's that welded box overlapping the door edge? Looks like it came off a shipping container!

    Tann right enough - late Billericay - known as a Tann No.1 and later the 600ABP.
    The attached without the clenching mechanism fairing and opposite hand.

    Cheers safeman, I mostly saw a few Chubb and Chatwood Milner 3.5 and 5 inch branch bank doors so not that familiar with Tann's. Not as pretty clenching mechanism as Chubb and CM's threaded hand-wheels but obviously equally effective.
