Who is handling your hangar door installation?

Installation of a complete hangar door system includes bottom rails, top track guides, door leaves, electrical components and any number of extras. This is not a process to be taken for granted.

Even the best design, with high-grade manufacturing can fail due to poor installation. 3rd party installers may not have intimate knowledge of your design requirements and could cause delays, added costs, and other inefficiencies. Inexperienced installers can cause huge time delays and negative financial impact – often without recourse for ownership.

It makes financial sense and carries less risk to have the same company design, manufacture, ship and install your new hangar doors for you.

Common Hangar Door Installation Questions

  • Do I get a longer warranty if AeroDoor installs the door?

    The standard warranty is 5-years on structural defects and workmanship. But a door installed by AeroDoor employees is often less expensive and offers long term peace of mind for everyone.

  • What rental equipment is needed?

    Cranes, forklifts, boom lifts and scissor lifts. Choices will depend on size and weight of the door.

  • What Insurances do AeroDoor door installers carry?

    AeroDoor carries coverage for Professional liability, General liability, Auto, Umbrella and Workers Comp. Employees carry safety, lift and ragging certifications.

  • What stage of the construction project does the hangar door get installed?

    The anchor bolts, levelling angles and bottom rails are installed during the foundation stage. Do not hang the top guide rails and door leaves until the work of other trades in preparing the opening has been completed and the hangar roof is under full dead load.

  • What paint is applied to the door?

    Under standard specification all structural steel is cleaned to SSPC-SP3 and primed with a heavy duty inhibitive primer. We do offer abrasive blast cleaning and specialist coatings on request.

  • What tests are done on the door after installation?

    After the door installation is complete, AeroDoor will perform a complete operating test in the presence of the Contracting Officer. Any defects or concerns disclosed by the test will be adjusted until the entire installation is fully operational and acceptable to the Contracting Officer.

  • What is AeroDoor’s close out policy?

    AeroDoor provides a hard file for the contracting officer and the owner. This file contains the door submittals, raw component data sheets, operation and troubleshooting guide and warranty registration.
