Hangar Door Installation

JaCor offers a complete line of installation services including bottom rolling hangar doors.  This 105'wide x 22' high, 6-leaf, bi-parting door system was insatlled for Signature Flight Support in Milwaukee, WI.  This bottom rolling door system was retro-fitted onto and existing aircraft hangar.  Refurbishment to the hangar included demoing the existing endwall, adding a new PEMB endwall, new concrete and bottom track system along with the new hangar door and upper track system.  Many hangars are in need of a new door system, but the existing hangar is still in good shape.

Rider Jet Center, located in Hagerstown, MD, is a premier FBO on the East Coast.  With a growing need for hangar space Rider Jet Center added to the growing list of hangars with a new 30,000 sqft hangar.  JaCor was contracted to supply the 140ft wide x 28ft high, 6-leaf, bi-parting door system.  

Features included:

  • Internal Battery Back-up

  • Windows and Personnel Door

  • Installation supervision and comissioning

Hangar Door Refurbishment

Skywest Airlines along with the Port of Portland completed a renovation to one of their existing hangars at the Portland International Airport.  One phase of the project was renovating the existing 6-leaf, bi-parting hangar door system.  JaCor was contracted to design, supply and install a new weather seal system along with retro-fitting the JaCor Titan Drive System.  

  • The hangar door now features the JaCor Titan Drive System for reliable opening/closing of the 6-leaf hangar door.

  • Internal battery back-up, handheld pendants, and soft-start / soft-stop operation are just some of the standard features of the JaCor Titan Drive System.

  • New weather seals and galvanized retainers were added to each door panel - bottoms, verticals, and center

  • Galvanized weather seal rub plates were added between the door leaves to ensure a proper weather tight seal

  • Interior heavy-duty nylon brush seals add an additional layer of protection from the weather


Byrne Tilt-Up Door

The Army National Guard in Indianapolis completed a complete renovation of historic Hangar 9.  This hangar included two (2) sets of Byrne hangar doors, each 134' wide x 28' high.  Each door system received a complete weather seal replacement, new galvanized trims and retainers along with adjustments to the full-open and full-close limit switches.  This is a heated hangar that gets utilized throughout the year by the national guard so keeping the weather out and heat/cooling in was important.

  • Bottom seal with galvanized angle extension

  • Vertical bulb seals with galvanized angle flashings

  • Header seal with galvanized header extension

  • Full-open and close limit switch adjustment 



Energy Efficiency Upgrades

Energy Systems Group was contracted by NASA to complete and energy savings evaluation of their entire facility.  One of these items was to replace the weather seals on two (2) 250'wide x 37'high, 12-leaf hangar door systems.  Due to the number of leaves and deterioration of the existing seals there would be a significant yearly energy savings with new weather seals and brush seals.   

  • Exterior and Interior bottom weather seals

  • Bulb-Bulb bypass weather seals

  • Top brush seals with aluminum holders

  • Lead jamb bulb seals


Enclosed Trolley Duct System

The US Air Force has several large hangars at Dover AFB that service the C130.  The hangar doors are +65ft tall and each individually powered by an Overhead Trolley Duct System.  For this project one run of overhead trolley duct was damaged and needed to be replaced.  JaCor was contracted to supply and install a new trolley duct system.  The new system features 14ft removable sections that can be easily replaced if damaged in the future.  Contact JaCor if you need a trolley duct system replaced.



Weather Seals - Energy Savings

One of the largest MRO facilities in America is the American Airlines hangar in Tulsa, OK.  This single hangar consisted of two (2) 300ft wide x 80ft high, 5-leaf hangar door systems and one (1) 520'wide x 80' high, 8-leaf hangar door system.  Temperature control and air infiltration is important to American Airlines when performing the maintenance on these large aircraft, so JaCor was contracted to supply and install new weather seals and galvanized retainers to replace the deteriorated bypass bulb seals.


Weather Seals and Maintenance

Intense summer sun and cold snowy winters took their toll on the existing weather seals at the Hagadone Jetport.  JaCor was contracted to supply and install new weather seals around the perimeter of each door panel.  JaCor's pre-construction inspection revealed that the mechanical door pick-ups were installed incorrectly and not allowing the door to seal properly for the past 20 years.  The problem was corrected and the (2) hangar door systems are sealing better than they ever have.

  • Corrected the mechanical pick-ups

  • Install new weather seals - tops, verticals, bottoms

  • Complete inspection of door panels - mechanical, electrical, and structural
