I am a project manager for a government contractor working at the USAFA. I am inquiring about the cost to retrofit SCHWEISS bi-fold hangar doors to replace the double OH doors that have been in place for 30 years at the Cadet Airfield at the USAFA. These doors will need to be 40 feet wide and 12 feet high.We have 28 of this size door (56 OH doors currently in place). We would like them insulated and need 100 MPH wind load design due to high winds coming off the mountain foothills here. The existing openings cannot be compromised as the cadet planes fit through the doors with just 6" to spare, 3" each side. This is not a request for an official proposal, just an approximate cost for me to work with in my estimate. We have a base contractor that would possibly be in contact with you once this project moves ahead. This project will be done this year. I have enclosed a picture of a standard door in place so you can see what we are dealing with. Please call me or email back. I have a meeting this Wednesday to discuss options. Any comments you can give me would be helpful. Just trying to get a feel for what we are dealing with. Do you have a local rep? How long would it take to manufacture this quantity of doors for delivery.Thanks.

What experience do you have with successfully locking out heat when large military hangar doors are open? Would tying hangar door controls into enabling/disabling heating systems be particularly cost-effective?

We are located at the former Pease Air Force base. We are looking at converting a former B-52 nose dock into comercial aircraft storage. The hanger now has track mounted rolloing sectional doors. The opening is 300 feet across 30 feet high. We are considering the best way to install hydraulic or bifold doors that do not roll on tracks because of the ice problems. We would consider partitioning openning into 3 sections. One section 120 feet wide by 30 feet hight. The remaining 2 sections could be 80 feet wide 20 feet high. What would you have that may fit this need of hangar doors. Chief Master Sgt. David H.
