Hangar door seal benefits

Energy saving weatherstripping prevents heat loss

The "before" photo at left shows a hangar door system 100 feet wide. The average gap along that length is 2 inches. This is like having a 4-foot-by-4-foot window open in the facility every day of the year — not even including the gaps in the vertical weather seals on each door.

Can you imagine how much heating and cooling was escaping from this hangar?

Typically, the people who own, run, or work in these hangars are not even aware of this problem. These top door seals are 28 feet off the ground. They are very hard to see from that distance.

Protect aircraft hangars from birds, dirt, and weather

Birds, wind, rain, sand, and dirt can all penetrate old hangar door seals and cause damage to your valuable airplane.

Bird excrement, unabated, can be corrosive and harm the aircraft surfaces and the hangar itself. It also poses health hazards like lung disease through prolonged exposure. Excluding birds from the hangar is the best long-term solution. Properly sealed aircraft hangar doors keep wind from driving moisture and grit into your hangar, preventing damage to your valuable airplane and improving the appearance of your facility.
