Time is money in your business – more specifically, down time means money lost. Efficiency in maintenance and repairs has to be part of your calculus in selecting a hangar door company.
“If anything should happen to go wrong, whether covered by our warranty or not, AeroDoor technicians travel nationwide. We’re available to resolve any hangar door issues, install replacement hardware, and minimize any potential down time for your operation. Guaranteed.”
Because we’re directly involved in every phase of your hangar door design, manufacturing, and installation, we are uniquely qualified to quickly identify problems, acquire necessary parts, and get you up and running soonest.
After installation of your hangar door is completed, and your teams are trained in daily operations, it’s all about minimizing carrying costs and down time. That means developing a proper maintenance and inspection schedule.
Steel sliding hangar doors rarely need a top guide roller or hangar door wheel replaced, but not all hangar door manufacturers build to AeroDoors standards.
A top guide roller connects the top track to the door leaf and in most cases each door panel has two rollers. When replacing a top guide roller, the door panel is removed from the top track and at this point the door leaf could crash to the floor if the technicians aren’t experienced and following the correct lift plan.
Roller replacement is one of many on site services offered by AeroDoor.
Preventative maintenance refers to the bi-annual or annual routine inspection to help keep your hangar door in prime condition, and to prevent unplanned downtime from unanticipated failures. Preventative maintenance for aircraft hangar doors is for the most part fast and painless.
The inspection fee is low in comparison to costs for a neglected hangar door.
We will provide a report upon completion of the inspection which highlights any points of concern, adjustments, and any parts we understand may need to be repaired or replaced.
This is a preventative maintenance inspection only and does not cover the cost of any replacement components or labor. If we find any issues on the hangar door we will highlight them in the inspection report and you will be quoted accordingly for replacement parts and labor.
Inspection of the structural integrity of the door would require a professional engineer which is available separately but not included in the inspection.
AeroDoor’s bottom rolling door leaves are made of steel and move via heavy-duty steel wheels on ASCE rail. The structural load of the door goes down into the wheels.
The door leaves should have track cleaners that clear debris from the rail head and wheel flange grooves as the door moves. These keep the track and channels clear and prolong the life of the rail and each wheel. Keep an eye on the track cleaners and replace them when necessary.
The concrete foundation may or may not have drainage weep holes on each side of the ASCE bottom rail. These weep holes drain rain water out of the channels and prevent the ASCE rail from corroding. These weep holes should be cleaned regularly with a pressure vac.
AeroDoor performs renovations of hangar doors nationwide. Services include consultation, design engineering, furnish and installation.
Usage requirements and business plans change. Perhaps a new aircraft is on the way. While new construction can be very expensive, renovating existing hangar doors for future use can be a viable option.
Cost-saving examples include replacing wheels, top guide hardware, bottom rail systems, hangar door hardware, weather seals. Replacing or repairing motors, gear boxes, drives, chains, mounting plates, electrical panels also serve to improve efficiency and prolong the life of your hangar doors.
