Doors for Heliport - Airports - Airplane Hangars - Sky Logistics

Due to their usually massive wingspan, planes and helicopters set special requirements for a door. 

But opening and closing large apertures fast as well as reliable is exactly what creates a big challenge. At the same time, the doors are also expected to hold the latest standards in isolation and energy efficiency to keep operating costs at an absolute minimum. Additionally, stability and durability are also expected to withstand the always harsher weather conditions that are experienced around the globe.


Putting it all together, the doors for any aviation project have to be top-notch and engineered to its finest to meet today's requirements. 

And this is what we provide you with.

If you are constructing a hangar, make sure you consider these points:

  1. Necessary height and width, particularly in regards to the wingspan of the planes or helicopters

  2. Characteristics and needed performance (e.g. energy efficiency, resistance against wind load)

  3. User behaviour and requirements on site (especially the takeoff and landing areas for helicopters can create strong wind load and thus should be located in the distance)

  4. The required way of operation: fast automatic opening, manual, or e-drive opening

  5. Design options such as glass elements for better incidence of light, colors and surfaces

  6. Lifecycle operating costs (Folding Doors are recommended since they have the least spare parts)

Our experts recommend: Sliding Folding Door AL603SF Thermo

  • Option of a triple glazing with a U-value of 0.6 W/m²K

  • Option of using long-lasting glass instead of plexiglass

  • Excellent in energy efficiency, thermal insulation and reduces condensation inside the building through thermally separated profiles

  • The ideal way of opening the door (Sliding Folding Doors are usually recommended as the pilot has a better view on them)

  • Various surfaces: anodized, powder-coated, metallic or even wooden decor

  • Opening fully automated and electric, which is recommended for large doors in particular

  • Various floor connections and options for running rails, including heated and concealed rails

  • Long lasting life span thanks to solid construction: design depth 60mm and frame width 87mm
