Replacing wheels on your sliding hangar door

You’ll never need to replace a wheel on an AeroDoor system, but the same cannot be guaranteed by others. We’re so sure we offer up to a 25-year warranty on our wheels.

When buying a steel sliding hangar door the wheels components and craftsmanship are often overlooked and that’s a big problem for the door owner. The wheel on a bottom rolling door carries the loads and cheap wheels will quickly find this task difficult and begin to fail.

Before long you’ll have trouble opening and closing the door and eventually you’ll need to replace all the wheels.

AeroDoor will help you identify the wheels that you already have and find a suitable replacement from the AeroDoor wheel range. We’ll deliver the wheels to your hangar and install them.

Wheel Specifications

Hangar door wheels shall be of steel plate or cast steel, having a minimum tread diameter as required for the actual wheel loading. We design our wheel assemblies to permit installation or removal of the wheel without removing the hangar door leaf from its position on the rail.

Treads: Machine wheel treads are concentric with bearing seats. The clear distance between flanges shall not exceed the width of the rail by more than 1/8 inch at the tread nor more than 1/4 inch at the edge of the flange. Machine internal bearing sits accurately for a press fit.

We offer to heat treat wheels to obtain a rim hardness of 320 Brinnel.

Bearings: We offer tapered roller or spherical bearings, either internal or cartridge type, arranged so that both horizontal and vertical loads shall be transferred to the rail only through the bearing. Bearings shall be tightly sealed and equipped with high-pressure grease fittings.

We offer nationwide installation of our wheels.
