Hi, I am trying to quote a steel building for a client who is considering a 30x12 bifold aviation airport strap door, uninsulated for a small aircraft hanger. I can't quote a price until he has decided on a door so I wondered if you could recommend a door that I can base my quote on. I will pass that on to the customer and leave him to decide I don't need pricing at the moment.

I am looking at getting construction quotes for a 40' deep x 55' wide hangar I plan on building. Before I reach out to contractors, I want to have an idea of the structural details for the bifold aviation airport hangar door opening which will be ~ 50'. I know there are special considerations with an opening this wide and want to ensure I am have all the necessary details before requesting a quote. The hangar will be a conventional stick built structure resting on a full foundation. Walls will be framed in 2x6 lumber. My current thinking is to span the hangar door opening with a glulam wooden beam resting atop the side walls ~ 2.5 in long. Embedded in the side walls will be vertical glulam columns which will take the load of the beam and door. I haven't settled on hangar ceiling height yet but it would be between 12' & 14'. The bottom of the door beam would be at ceiling height. I am planning on using your bi-fold liftstrap and automatic latching door mounted in a recessed fashion in a bottom drive configuration. I am taking this approach as I believe this will be a stronger structure overall. I am also hoping it will greatly simplify the roof truss design (end truss will simply lie atop the door beam). Additionally, I am hoping this approach will simplify the bracing details as well. But, I want to reach out to you for your expert opinion and advice. A few question I have at the moment are: - Will this type of structural approach work? - If so, assuming the door beam is 6" think, what sort of depth am I looking at? (I can go fairly large with this dimension as the hangar will be in Zone 3 and I plan to have the field roof trusses built with a heal so I can insulate thoroughly. Beam depth would then partially drive heal dimension.) - If I mount the door near the top of the beam to maximize the open height, would this then limit me to a face mount style? - How big would the side columns need to be? (assuming 6" wide to match 2x6 framing) - Since I am using a full foundation, the side columns would be resting atop the foundation and not embedded in the ground. Any special considerations to ensure the columns are firmly attached to the foundations? - Would it be possible to purchase framing drawings for the hangar door opening without purchasing a door? Thanks Andy Kavie
