Energy-efficent hangar door in a cold weather environment

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport was Continental Airlines' third largest hub before its merger with United Airlines. Aircraft maintenance at the airport is performed in a complex of three hangars. One of these hangars was dedicated to line maintenance and overnight phase checks on Continental's fleet of 737-300/500 aircraft. When Continental originally leased the hangar, it was able to fit its older 737s through the door. However, its newly acquired 737-NextGen aircraft would not fit because the opening was serviced by a bottom rolling door, stored in a 22' (6.7 m) pocket on the front of the hangar. The hangar-operations team realized that, if they eliminated the need for the door pocket, they could open the entire width of this fully confined hangar, and thus have plenty of room to accommodate their new aircraft. That is when they called Megadoor.

A primary regional general and business aviation airport, Oxford Airport is one of the U.K.'s busiest airfields, offering many different services.

Megadoor - chosen by Bangor Waste Station transfer

Michael Whitley Architects, acting as Project Managers for North Down Borough Council, approached Crawford UK, to ask them for the most appropriate door solution for the Bangor project. Not only was keeping dust and odour in the plant a key criterion, but they also asked for a number of other requirements to be considered. They had looked at roller shutter doors but felt these did not look aesthetically pleasing and had a perception of being noisy. As the development is close to a residential area, noise would be an issue.
