Bottom Rolling Hangar Doors

Door Engineering's range of bottom rolling hangar door systems offer versatility, advanced design, superior performance and are some of the industry's most popular. The doors benefit from an extremely flexible design, able to be installed as bi-parting, uni-directional, individually operated, anchored group and 3-way travelling group solutions. Bottom rolling doors are available to a maximum size of 500' x 80'. The versatility of each system makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, including airline, charter, FBO and corporate hangars.

Quick bottom rails and top guides are transported in factory-fabricated sub-assemblies, which include the bottom rail forms on every project. Door sections arrive to the jobsite in pre-assembled sub-sections from the factory to ensure the proper building interface.

This  type of hangar door system is designed to withstand high wind loads in the toughest of weather conditions. The door's weather seal bulbs are filled with a special poly foam, providing highly reliable, tight comprehensive weather protection for brilliant performance and a high R-Value.

Tip-Up Hangar Doors

Tip Up Hangar Doors

Door Engineering's Tip-Up Hangar Doors are one of the company's most compact aviation systems, but still offer great protection against high wind loads. The doors offer a weather-tight seal, as well as maintaining fast, automated smooth opening / closing motion. This solution is ideal if your facility lacks large amounts of side room.

The Tip-Up Door is supplied as a one piece product, featuring multiple lifting points around the frame for maximum support and efficient operation. Customers receive a complete system that includes all tracks, wire ropes and fixtures, as well as the operating hardware. Modular in design, installation costs are minimized, as the unit is easier to put together in the field.This  type of door system boasts the fastest opening rate of their class, taking only 55 seconds to open a large door of 120' x 30'. The exceptional speed of the doors curbs cooling and heating losses - actively reduces waiting times, increasing efficiency, productivity and profitability.

Aperture Hangar Doors

Aperture Hangar Doors

Door Engineering’s unique aperture door systems are designed to enhance existing aircraft hangars, making the system ideal for retro-fit projects. Aperture systems are likely to consist of a three-part platform, where an aircraft's fuselage and tail protrude from the hanger. A selection of custom manufactured aperture designs are available  to meet specific requirements.

A variety of automatic adjusting, manual and fixed panels are available, delivering maximum flexibility for this highly specialized application. Door Engineering's design allows for up to three aircraft to use the same hangar, using rotating aperture door panels. The aperture door is power operated and adjusts up and down using counterweights, enabling it to form a perfect seal along the fuselage. The pressure sensitive panels automatically adjust to the fuselage's size and position. When the aperture is not in use, the port is closed off by the closure door.

The aperture door system sports an exceptional reputation for design precision and excellence.  Designed for energy conservation and high wind load tolerance, this system demonstrates stand out strength for this type of application.less
