New hangar door

A tight sealing door, for a very hot and dusty environment.

Megadoor was tasked with providing a tight sealing door, which is suitable for an air-conditioned hangar in a very hot and dusty environment.

The door had to be designed to accommodate a wide range of aircraft, up to and including the Airbus A-340


Benefits:

  • Fast opening and closing times
  • Very tight sealing
  • Low maintenance requirements


Result

The completed hangar door is an ascetically good design, with no side pockets, which has been well received by the customer and is fulfilling all of the requirements, which were specified in the original design criteria.
