Custom Hangar Doors

The selection of custom hangar doors offered by Bothe-Hild includes hangar door systems for all manner of environments. Custom hangar doors up to 100m wide and 25m in height can be supplied.The hangar doors are custom built using steel or aluminium frames and dimensioned according to requirements. Customers can choose from a selection of custom hangar doors, including glazing, closed fillings and full-faced cladding with steel sandwich panels (with the option of single-window elements).

Customised hangar doors can be manually or electrically operated.

Hangar door design includes steel sliding designs and telescope sliding doors up to 100m x 25m. Telescope sliding doors include an integrated or fitted facade structure. Customers can select from a choice of filling materials for their hangar door design, including double-skin sheet or threefold glazing – both of which are recommended for advanced heat insulation.

Hangar Door Systems

Rolling hangar door systems are manufactured in widths of up to 25m and heights of up to 18m. The huge rolling doors provided consist of cold-rolled, 1.2mm thick aluminium profiles, which are manufactured in our factory in Luckenbach. The aluminium band is rolled over profiling machines and the finished lamellae are then pushed into one another. The profiles have a height of 100mm and a depth of 22mm, and are linked with one another in a waterproof, hinge-like way.
