Descriptions of aircraft hangar door types and photographs from some of our hangar door projects.

Bi-Parting Sliding Hangar Door

The bi-parting configuration of the bottom rolling hangar doors is such that the door opens from the middle and can have anywhere from one section to numerous door sections on each side. Each leading door section has an electric motor drive system. The non-powered door sections are interconnected to the leading door section. When open, the door sections stack in the two side corners of the hangar.

Uni-Directional Hangar Door

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 leading door section is motor operated.

Independently Operated Hangar Door

Each door section is independently motor operated.

Tip Up Door

A single leaf door that can be 120' long and 32' tall. The door tips up to a horizontal position. It operates via a counterweight which is of the equal weight of the door leaf and is attached by the appropriate size wire rope. The door leaf is guided by the jamb track and the appropriate number of horizontal top tracks which are perpendicular to the door. A floor mounted motor/operator assists in moving the counterweight and door up and down.
