Aircraft Hangar door is a special area of door business. As improvement of this doors started with steel sliding door system, many weakness and trouble of sliding hangar doors like bottom guide heavy door, extreme maintenance requirements also some operational problem client used it only for a obligations. After discover of fabric doors for large dimensions old sliding doors is changed rapidly.
Aircraft hangar door with mullion system doesn’t has any weakness like traditional sliding door system come with many advantage.
The Flexible giant has excessive durability although it is not expected cause of big body our hangar doors can be operated 7/24 specially choose high resistance fabric and gearbox system supply continuously operation at required.
Instead of conventional hangar doors our aircraft hangar doors no need any bottom rails,extra free area in hangar, very heavy maintenance , extra structural loading to building and low operations cycle and time. You can save your money time also environment.
Only our doors have side sealing pocket instead of all other fold up doors. This heavy duty PVC coated fabric supplies excellent sealing when doors is closed even high windy conditions. This design also supplies noiseless operations.
Flexible Giant hangar doors have no need any special maintenance all parts is carefully chosen for no maintenance requirements. There are no springs, ball-bearing, or couplings that can be damaged if anything crashed or collides with the door.
Shipyard hangar doors don’t have any limit for dimensions for aircraft hangar applications with mullion parts it can be manufactured according to clients specific requirements.
Doors are made of two fabrics folding in opposite directions. Fabric sections are fastened to horizontal beams (extruded aluminum T 6063-T6 series). Minimum door thickness is 380 mm that is our special properties. Intermediate beams are retractable by means of an electric motor. The beams have tires for easy operations in windy conditions. The intermediate beams when retracted don’t impede the clear opening dimensions
Bottom beam is designed according to wind resistance, dimension of the doors and, load of the intermediate steel beams during door operations. Bottom beam also supply full closing and sealing in heavy wind conditions.
Shipyarddoor Flexible Giant® The vertical guides shall be an integral part of the door, made of extruded aluminum with a suitable depth and width dependent on the size of the intermediate beams. The guides shall be designed to provide weather-sealing on the inside and the outside faces. The guides shall be designed to provide sufficient strength to transfer the wind load and safety arrestor forces from the door beams, at maximum wind load, to the jamb steel support system. The guides shall be easily replaceable in case of damage. The installer shall furnish jamb structural steel fasteners of size and type required for attachment of the guide rails as shown on the approved shop drawings.
Shipyarddoors are operated with steel cable, maximum of two cable each door that running inside of the door guides. Similarly, the quantity of sheaves used to guide the belts/cables shall be minimized to reduce maintenances’ requirements and spare parts inventories. Belts/cables shall be installed free of any kinks and the system design and sheave diameter shall be such to prevent the occurrence of any kinks or abnormal stress in the operating belts/cables. Where belts/cables pass through openings in the building structure the openings shall be constructed so as to prevent abrasion, wear, or damage to the belts/cables. Sheave units shall be installed in accessible locations which allow inspection and preventive maintenance. Sheaves shall not be located in enclosed locations which are not readily accessible for visual inspection.
Specially chosen fabric is suitable for long life. It has very high resistance against to UV damage. We choose especially extreme strong fabric. We also have Arctic Fabric for extreme climatic conditions-secure and sound resistance fabric is available as a options.

They include materials such as wood treated with a fire retardant and rigid foam plastics. A fire must extinguish itself when the source of the fire is removed.
The bottom beam is furnished with cellular rubber seal(U-Shaped). The side guides on frame structures or mullions have either cellular rubber seals or integral brush seals depending on door type. Specially chosen rubber has high resistance against to outdoor conditions extreme cold and hot weather.
Standard Shipyarddoor Flexible Giant Fold-Up Hangar Doors have excellent insulations because of its extreme width and sealing properties. Thermal insulations’ value U<0.9 W/m².K Isolated fabric are also available Sound attenuation 12 dB A.
Shipyarddoor ® Hangar Doors are designed as a unitary system to withstand wind load specified. Fiber stresses due to combined dead load and wind load will not exceed factors for the material being used and type of loading sustained, operationally 140 km/h also at closed positions can be stand up to 180 km/h. Special conditions can be manufactured up to 230 km/h hurricane standard.
Shipyarddoor® Hangar Doors are designed withstand dead load, seismic forces and design loads due to pressure and suction of wind calculated in accordance to environmental and building ambient.
Driving Unit and limit switches
The lifting motors are normally located above the door opening. All Shipyarddoor hangar door systems are equipped double motor to supply balanced rising also even 1 motor damaged other can be operated the system. The limit switches are also located above the door opening. Shipyarddoor switch system no way to miss or damage all switch have both of side with safety switch. The door stops on the limit switch when the door is completely opened or completely closed. Should the doors by-pass these limit switches there are also safety limit switches for both directions. In direction upwards the limit switches are located above the door at each end of the door and the topmost moving horizontal door beam will activate them. In direction downwards the limit switches are located above the door opening on the slack strap/rope switches.
Hangar Doors is operated as a standard 20 cm /s opening and closing speed also it is can be increased up to 40 cm/s.
All doors is manufactured CE Standard Applicable Directives 89/106/EC-99/93/E Applicable Standards:- EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011-EN 12978:2008 and Load Arrestors, wind lock, thermic resistance, buzzer and warning light is served as a standard .
Bottom safety edge and pneumatic safety edge system is available.
Load Arrestors + Wind Locks
Shipyarddoor Flexible Giant® Aircraft Hangar Doors are equipped with load arrestors attached to bottom part of door.(Patent Protections) Load arrestors will prevent the door from falling down in case of motor or lifting strap or rope failure. Wind locks will prevent the door rising up from its close position even in very windy conditions. Load arrestors safety device is sense a slack cable condition and cut power to appropriate(it is combined with switch system. drive unit to prevent an unsafe condition.
