Hangar & Large Scale Doors

Due to their large size, hangar doors require regular professional maintenance to keep the doors in proper working order.

Protect Your Most Valuable Assets

The most common use for hangar doors is to protect aircraft and equipment within the hangar. A faulty or inoperable hangar door could result in decreased security for your aircraft and other items kept inside the hangar.

Since hangar doors are often very large, it’s important that all of the seals are maintained and in good condition to avoid dust and debris from coming into the hangar to ensure a clean environment for the aircraft and equipment.

Hangar & Large Scale Door Types:

Keeping People Safe

In order to keep you, your employees and customers safe, it is imperative to ensure your hangar doors are regularly maintained and repaired. A faulty hangar door could result in damage to the aircraft and security issues.

Improper installation or maintenance of your hangar doors can result in damage to the doors themselves, or damage to the property within or around the hangar.

Hangar Door Inspection

LADWP Hangar

Regular inspections are necessary to provide peace of mind and confidence that you are creating a safe working environment. Semi-annual or annual inspections allow technicians to clean and lubricate mechanical components, protect against rust, and extend the life of critical operational mechanisms.

Our technicians examine every element of the door system, such as the panels, rollers, cables, straps, safety devices, motor operators, and weather seals. In the event of an emergency, our technicians are on call to diagnose and repair problems to get your hangar door working safely again so you can operate your business.

Maintenance includes inspecting all aspects of the hangar doors. This means ensuring that all weather-stripping and seals are in good condition to make sure that dust, dirt and debris do not enter your hangar.

Preventative maintenance helps in catching repairs early, so you can make certain your assets and property remain protected. We help ensure your doors are safe, secure, and that all parts are tested and calibrated for easy operation to keep you flying with confidence!
