Esavian Aircraft Hangar Doors

The name Esavian dates back almost a century, with some of the largest aircraft hangar doors in the world bearing the name. As a result of continuous development, Esavian doors now incorporate sophisticated control systems, advanced safety features and are increasingly 'green' in terms of environmental impact. Each door is custom designed to the clients' specific requirements.

Esavian Type 126 Aircraft Hangar Door

The Type 126 is the most popular and cost-effective Esavian aircraft hangar door in the range. These bottom-rolling sliding doors have a steel frame and can accept any glazing or cladding system (or combination thereof).

They can also include in-built personnel and truck doors. Type 126 doors have an unlimited opening width and a maximum height of 40 metres, although this can be increased in certain instances.

Esavian Type 127 Aircraft Hangar Door

The Type 126 incorporates the robust composite panels from the Jewers Doors Phoenix range, providing visually appealing, modular leaves.

The Esavian Type 127 aircraft hangar door has an unlimited width and a maximum height of 12 metres, making it the perfect choice for large vehicle openings and smaller aircraft hangars.

Esavian Type 1200 Aircraft Hangar Door

The Type 1200 bottom rolling, folding aircraft hangar door is widely recognised for its longevity and durability. Type 1200 doors installed more than 50 years ago are still in use today.

It has been specifically designed for use in tall openings, up to 18 metres in height, and because the leaves can fold clear of the opening the Type 1200 is ideal when stacking space is at a premium.

Esavian Flatfold Aircraft Hangar Door

The insulated, bottom rolling, steel Flatfold aircraft hangar door is suited to openings around 30 metres wide and eight metres high. No load-bearing portal frame is required because the door weight is taken on the floor.

Designed for medium-size aircraft and large helicopter hangars, the doors fold into small bunches, leaving the opening clear so as not to compromise on hangar space.
