398: G - PRIVATE HANGARS

1

Hello, I run the FBO at Duluth International, but I am considering building a hangar off airport for personal use. My current design calls for a 60' x 60' hangar, most likely steel frame, with a 45' x 14' bi-fold hangar door (clear opening dimensions). Do you manufacturer doors to support this size or is it preferable (cost wise) to go with a more standard size door, or does it matter? Thanks, Mike btw, we installed a strap door on one of our hangars and it has worked well. We are now considering converting our other cable doors to strap systems.

I have a customer that is looking to build a private hangar in Woodruff, WI and it looking at two different bifold strap door sizes. 80 x 22 and 80 x 16.

Building/door height still TBD, but has to be high enough for a Seneca and a Stearman to fit, so at least 14' high.

I am in the planning process for building a hangar on my property in southern Georgia. I was hoping you could give me a rough quote for a 40’ wide by 10’ tall, bifold Liftstrap powder coated hangar door. I may side it with either wood (log siding) or metal. I hope to do metal so it matches my garage. The location I will need it shipped to is Townsend, GA 31331. We are about 6 months away from the actual build, but I am working up the project costs in order to secure the financing. How much lead time will you require once I place my order. What other add-ons do you offer such as remote openers, windows, horns, lights, walk doors, etc.

Schweiss Designer Doors, We have (2) beautiful bi-fold private hangar doors from Schweiss on our property in San Jose, CA. The private hangar doors are flush with the fascia of the building. The architect has designed and we have installed an 8" tall waterproofing band at the top of each door. This works very well unless there is heavy wind - then the bands bang loudly against the face of the building. We are wondering whether Schweiss has a standard waterproofing detail that would work for these private hangar doors. Thank you

HI there, I'm a metal fabricator here in Maine. A contractor that I work with has a private hangar he wants to put a set of Bifold doors on. We have talked about building the doors our selves but after looking at your website I'm sure that your bifold door and  strap lift mechanism is beyond what we want to attempt. Can you give me a price on a set of private hangar bifold doors with lift mechanism. We can take care of fitting and installing the doors to the building and needed structural work. A licensed electrician will do the wiring. The door opening is 16' tall x 42' wide. Let me know if you need more info. Thanks

I have a customer looking to build a new private hanger or purchase an existing one and will be needing a new bifold hangar door in either case. The hanger he is looking at buying has a 46'x14'8" Opening and has a bifold door with only a little over 12' clearance. He needs a solution to get the full 14'8" Clearance for his plane I think actual is right at 14'. The other option is build a completely new hanger and in that case he wants to have 50'x16' Clearance in case he later decides to upgrade his plane. I'd like to get quotes on both doors to help him make a decision. For the new building please quote both bifold and One piece hangar door. That building would be a metal building if he goes that way.
