Your hangar door is a fundamental part of your building and protects your aircraft from dust, sand and water intrusion, that’s a fact. It’s arguable that the physical condition of your hangar door can determine the success or failure of your building in extreme weather, as many buildings collapse after the hangar door has blown in. Either way it is worth reminding you that a hangar doors condition beyond whether it opens and closes could have an impact on the doors life span, and preventive maintenance needs to be addressed. As years pass, a once durable door that has served as the face of your aircraft hangar will begin to deteriorate due to the life expectancy of the materials and Florida’s demanding climate. This can result in problems for hangar door owners that translate into much more serious and potentially dangerous or expensive scenarios that include the dreaded words “door replacement”. Care for your hangar door can be done through periodic service inspections and preventive maintenance, as well as following some of the simple tips below:

Bi-Fold Door Systems

  • Grease line shaft pillow blocks through a grease ‘zerk’.
  • Lubricate center hinge at all locations. Check cotter pins and replace if needed.
  • Check sprockets and chain at operator:
  • If sprockets have shifted, loosen mounting bolts and realign using a straight edge.
  • If chain is loose, adjust by using the tension bolts on the gear reducer. Loose the four bolts on the back of the gear reducer, tighten the tensioning bolts until the chain has from 1/4” to 1/2” of play. Re-tighten all bolts and lubricate chain with oil.
  • Lubricate all the lift cables using an old rage and gear oil. As the rag is passed over the cables, watch and feel carefully for frays in the cables. Any cables excessively frayed should be replaced.
  • Check adjustment of the locking cables which should be tight enough to close the door gently. Over tightening of these cables will lead to premature cable failure.
  • With the door in the fully closed position, check door rollers for excessive wear. Check to see if the door is tracking straight. This can be seen by the marks left by the door rollers on the outside of the jamb.
  • Inspect welding of the frame to the building.
  • Check that all switches and wiring are in good working order.
  • Inspect locking devices and hurricane bolts.
  • Check the top and bottom door weather stripping and replace if necessary.

Hydraulic Swing Door System

  • Lubricate hinges on the header at all locations.
  • Check hydraulic fluid level. Replace hydraulic fluid and filter every 2-years.
  • Clean and lubricate cylinder shafts.
  • Inspect all hydraulic hoses for cracks and deterioration.
  • Inspect all hydraulic lines for leaks.
  • Inspect welding of the frame to the building.
  • Check that all switches and wiring are in good working order.
  • Inspect hurricane bolts.
  • Check the top and bottom door weather stripping and replace if necessary.

Please make sure your hydraulic door utilizes at least a counterbalance valve  which stops the door from crashing down. If you are unsure or know they are fitted and would like them installed they can be retrofitted.
