In this article we discuss powering the hangar door’s electric motors & controls – vital information for any electrical contractor working with AeroDoor on steel sliding hangar doors.

Here’s what we cover:


Junction Box Location

The junction box should be installed in the top corner, next to where the hangar door top track system ends. (see diagram A1)

AeroDoor employees will field locate with the general contractor or customer.

One Junction Box or Multiple Boxes?

In most configurations, if a hangar door is purchased with a trolley buss system we only need a junction box on one side of the opening. If the hangar door is purchased with SO cable, we need a junction box each side of the opening.

Please contact AeroDoor and we will review your order and determine which side or sides that you need to provide a junction box.

Have any questions about this topic?
We’re ready to listen.
