Here at Alliance Doors, we can deliver bespoke hangar doors that are built secure whatever you need. From remote operated powered doors which allow you taxi straight in without leaving your aircraft, to chain-based manual shutters. Depending on your budget, we have a solution for you.
We can combine this with our installation and maintenance services for all of our clients, so with our hangar doors installed all over the world, you can take comfort in the quality, capability and security of our doors. We are committed to providing hangar doors which are highly-resilient and simple to operate daily. Over the years, the team at Alliance Doors has manufactured and installed hangar doors in some fairly bizarre properties all over the world.
Recently, our team were called upon to manufacture and install a bespoke hangar door for an RAF base. This hard-wearing roller shutter was one of the largest we’ve ever produced and installed and is designed to offer a lifetime of service. Creating a roller shutter for an aircraft hangar was a unique challenge, but we’re extremely proud of the way it turned out. All of our hangar doors and shutters are also designed to provide a high level of clearance without requiring any additional space. This enables the professionals at the RAF to take full advantage of their available space.
DO I NEED ROLLER SHUTTERS OR FOLDING SLIDING DOORS?
Roller Shutters are ideal for small aircraft hangars and warehouses, where lateral space is minimal, however Folding Sliding doors can provide additional security, but can also be hidden completely from view when open without losing too much of the width of the hangar. Many larger hangars operated every day will need a powered operated Folding Sliding door solution. Roller Shutters can also take a great deal of time to open and close, which can be problematic in harsh weather conditions. Folding Sliding Doors work better for larger hangar openings, and their shape and vertical support, can protect your aircraft inside from high wind speeds, where wider roller shutters may sustain damage.
Fortunately though Alliance Doors folding sliding shutters are able to withstand wind speeds of up to 150mph. They are all designed from industry-leading materials to ensure that they will deliver an unbeatable service for many years to come. In addition to the natural versatility and durability of Folding Sliding Doors, they can be equipped with a range of unique features to improve their suitability for their environment.
UNIQUE ADD-ONS FOR HANGAR FOLDING SLIDING DOORS AND SHUTTERS
An important part of any hangar door installation is the addition of other features which can improve the practicality of the door. By choosing to equip your hangar door with some of these features, you’ll be able to make it much more practical and easy to operate on a daily basis. Some of the additions that you can make include:
- Industrial Top and Bottom Tracks – One of the most common problems with sliding doors, particularly hangar doors, is that they rely on their tracks. These pieces of metal can suffer damage over many years. In some cases, they can even become buckled or warped. This can prevent the doors from opening at all.
Here at Alliance Doors, the tracks for all our doors are made from hard-wearing materials. They can provide a life-time of service without requiring any kind of maintenance. The weight of the roller will be evenly spread out along the tracks and, when they are fit flush with the floor, they are protected against damage from vehicles and foot traffic.
- Brush Strips – Brush strips can be used to eliminate all kinds of debris beneath the sliding doors. This can help to remove even minor debris which can lead to blockages or damage to the tracks. They can also help to prevent the metals from scraping together. This can also help to reduce the noise caused by the operating of the large hangar doors.
- Wicket Doors are a very important part of large Roller Shutters to allow personnel access without having to raise the entire door. We can factor in Wicket Doors to any roller shutters we manufacture to ensure you maintain the most efficient solution in terms of insulation and speed of access.
- Safety and Security Features – There is a range of security and safety features which can be installed as part of your shutters system. For example, hard-wearing locks and key-operation boxes to prevent unauthorised access. Safety options can include manual overriding switches and sensors to prevent the door from closing on a person or vehicle.
