Hanger door types and Service

Canopy Door

This door provides a weather-tight seal and maintains a quick, yet stable motion. Get maximum access for your facility with minimal side room requirements, all with the benefit of long-lasting dependability. The one piece Tip-Up Canopy door system has multiple wire rope pick-up points attached to the front of the door framing that are run to the counterweight and floor mounted operator assembly. The wire rope provided has a minimum safety factor of 5:1 at each of the pick up points.

Tip Up doors arrive to your facility complete including the side tracks, curved top tracks, the operating hardware, pre-wired electrical controls, wire rope pick-up brackets, the automatic sill locks, side and top roller assemblies.

This door system is shop fabricated in modular assemblies to minimize field installation costs. Canopy doors clear an opening at a quick rate of speed. This door system is available in up to 130’W x 32’H.

Bottom Rolling Door

Bottom Rolling hangar doors are manufactured in sizes up to 500’W x 80’H. True telescoping top roller assemblies can be fabricated to tolerate almost any header deflection requirements. The factory-installed, dual opposing bulb vertical weather seals provide dramatically superior sealing in comparison to single or dual-flap weather seals. Internal wiring to the powered door section is completed and tested at the factory.
Plus, no release of the electric motor shaft brake is required. The electric motor single-lever disengage completely separates the motor drive assembly from the drive wheel for non-powered operation. The draped S/O cord is equipped with looped thimbles factory set to match up with cord hangar brackets.
Top guides and quick set bottom rails are shipped in factory-fabricated sub-assemblies with bottom rail forms included in every project. The bottom rails are grouted out around the rail head. Additionally, to offer quick assembly and straightforward installation, door sections are delivered to jobsite in factory-fabricated, sub-assemblies.
Further, the “Quick Disconnect” Pivot Mounted Operator allows for easy manual operation in a power outage. A stable operating movement is maintained due to the quality of the bottom rails and the top tracks using telescoping top roller assemblies. The Bottom Rolling hangar door system is built to endure massive wind loads and withstand strong weather conditions. The poly foam filled vertical weather seal bulbs offer the tightest, most reliable all-weather protection allowing for long-lasting performance reliability

Bi-Parting Hangar Door Systems

The bi-parting configuration of our bottom rolling hangar doors is the most popular and probably the style of hangar doors that comes to most people’s mind. The doors open from the middle and can have anywhere from one section to five door sections on each side. Each leading door section has an electric motor drive system that is mounted internally. The non-powered door sections are interconnected to the leading door section using a bumper pick-up system. When open, the door sections stack in the two side corners of the hangar. Pocket space is determined by the number of sections.

Smart Rails Hangar Door System

Instead of the door sections opening to each side like the bi-parting system, the unidirectional hangar door system opens in just one direction, either to the left or to the right. The up-to six sections are controlled by an electric motor drive system that is mounted on the leading door section. One advantage this system can have over the bi-parting system is that only one corner is needed for pocket space vs two. The Smart rails system provides the ultimate flexibility in hangar door design with the door sections being able to stack anywhere-all left, all right, bi-part from center or partially open. The benefit to this system is you are able to allow smaller aircraft to enter/exit the hangar without having to move other aircraft. The Smart Rails system also does not require any pocket space because there is no defined stacking point.

Independently Operated Hangar door System

Each door section is independently operate in this our most flexible hanger door system

Aperture Hanger Door

The aperture door system has a solid reputation and exemplifies excellence. A valuable benefit of this system is that it is power operated. The pressure sensing panels automatically adjust to the fuselage’s position. Ease of operation is amazing. The free-floating, counterweighted panels move with the push of a finger. Designed for wind load and energy conservation requirements, this system also demonstrates impressive strength. The Aperture Door system is designed to fit and meet your specific application. Fixed, manual and automatic adjusting panels are available. Flexibility ensures the perfect fit all the time, every time. Rotating aperture door panels allows up to three different aircraft to use the same hangar facility. The rotating aperture door (counterweighted) adjusts up, down and side to side providing the perfect seal at each fuselage profile. The closure door seals off the opening when the aperture door is not required.

Your hangar door is a fundamental part of your building and protects your aircraft from dust, sand and water intrusion, that’s a fact. It’s arguable that the physical condition of your hangar door can determine the success or failure of your building in extreme weather, as many buildings collapse after the hangar door has blown in. Either way it is worth reminding you that a hangar doors condition beyond whether it opens and closes could have an impact on the doors life span, and preventive maintenance needs to be addressed. As years pass, a once durable door that has served as the face of your aircraft hangar will begin to deteriorate due to the life expectancy of the materials and Florida’s demanding climate. This can result in problems for hangar door owners that translate into much more serious and potentially dangerous or expensive scenarios that include the dreaded words “door replacement”. Care for your hangar door can be done through periodic service inspections and preventive maintenance, as well as following some of the simple tips below:

Bi-Fold Door Systems

  • Grease line shaft pillow blocks through a grease ‘zerk’
  • Lubricate center hinge at all locations. Check cotter pins and replace if needed
  • If sprockets have shifted, loosen mounting bolts and realign using a straight edge
  • If chain is loose, adjust by using the tension bolts on the gear reducer. Loose the four bolts on the back of the gear reducer, tighten the tensioning bolts until the chain has from 1/4” to 1/2” of play. Re-tighten all bolts and lubricate chain with oil
  • Lubricate all the lift cables using an old rage and gear oil. As the rag is passed over the cables, watch and feel carefully for frays in the cables. Any cables excessively frayed should be replaced
  • Check adjustment of the locking cables which should be tight enough to close the door gently. Over tightening of these cables will lead to premature cable failure
  • With the door in the fully closed position, check door rollers for excessive wear. Check to see if the door is tracking straight. This can be seen by the marks left by the door rollers on the outside of the jamb
  • Inspect welding of the frame to the building
  • Check that all switches and wiring are in good working order
  • Inspect locking devices and hurricane bolts
  • Check the top and bottom door weather stripping and replace if necessary

Hydraulic Swing Door System

  • Lubricate hinges on the header at all locations
  • Check hydraulic fluid level. Replace hydraulic fluid and filter every 2-years
  • Clean and lubricate cylinder shafts
  • Inspect all hydraulic hoses for cracks and deterioration
  • Inspect all hydraulic lines for leaks
  • Inspect welding of the frame to the building
  • Check that all switches and wiring are in good working order
  • Inspect hurricane bolts
  • Check the top and bottom door weather stripping and replace if necessary

Please make sure your hydraulic door utilizes at least a counterbalance valve which stops the door from crashing down. If you are unsure or know they are fitted and would like them installed they can be retrofitted.
