A well-designed hangar door system will remain functional under conditions that prevent other structures from moving. Strong winds, heavy snow and power outages that interfere with other structures are easily overcome by a high-quality rolling door.
A high quality bottom rolling hangar door is the strongest and most reliable door systems ever.
- Flexible and easy to customize for virtually limitless design options.
- Unlimited size, maximum insulation, truck doors, pilot access doors, inner tubes or filter benches, hatches, fairings, glazing, rear panels, unlimited options.
- Manual doors are operated unlike electric motors to reduce complexity and cost.
- Electric motor operators can be integrated into your system to meet your specific needs.
- The lowest life cycle cost for any design.
- Flexible operation of the panels. The panels do not require any force to move them.
- Long life components requiring very little maintenance.
Bottom Rolling Door Types
All Moving Panels
One configuration of bottom rolling hangar doors is referred to as All Moving due to the fact that the panels are not restricted which direction they slide and are individually operated. This configuration of the hangar doors is generally chosen for applications requiring maximum flexibility in larger hangars, allowing multiple aircraft without the use of stacking pockets. Just move all the panels to the side of the shed that does not need to be open. In northern countries, all mobile configurations may require heated rails.
All hangar doors can be equipped with a variety of options to suit your needs. The doors can be operated manually or with an electric motor. Manual operation is popular in this configuration due to the fact that the operator does not have to push all panels at once and can push one at a time which is almost effortless. If the panel is chosen to be electrically motor operated, the price tends to be a bit more expensive than the other configurations. Each panel is fitted with a motor and control panel and power is fed to each panel through trolley duct feed system along each rail. Other options are recommended with that option such as safety edges along both edges and limit switches to prevent collisions at each panel.
Single Stacking Panels
Simply stackable, bottom sliding hangar doors that can be installed on virtually any type of building to save money and space. Single-stack door system have been specified for aircraft hangars, T- hangars, industrial and agricultural buildings and even for floating barges! When operated manually, these doors slide in the same manner as all moving doors, except that they close in one direction and open in the opposite direction. They “stack” at one end, which is recommended to be a wing wall or section built outside the building to store the doors while the full width of the shed is used for opening. In cases where space is not available on both sides of the opening, a wall is needed to stack the doors with the door open.
