Established in 1983, Jewers Doors is at the forefront of hangar door technology. The UK-based company now has unrivalled expertise in designing and manufacturing its class-leading Esavian doors for installation in the very largest hangars around the world.
Esavian doors are installed on more A380 and B747 hangars worldwide than any other door system. The most recent of a number of door installations for A380 aircraft hangars is the massive maintenance hangar at New Doha International Airport, Qatar.
Developed continuously over many years, Esavian doors have sophisticated control systems to reduce temperature changes when doors are opened and a multitude of safety features. A wide choice of cladding materials is available and Esavian doors are suitable for the harshest environments. In addition to doors for very large hangars, Jewers Doors designs and manufactures doors for hangars of all sizes including those for light aircraft and helicopters.
Aircraft hangar doors
While Esavian doors are often specified for new-build projects, they are equally suitable for refurbished hangars and will give long, low maintenance service.
There are no standard sizes or generic specifications for Esavian hangar doors. Instead, each door is designed and manufactured to meet project-specific requirements, such as the size of opening, climatic conditions, wind pressure loadings, architectural features and so on.
Jewers Doors has clients on every continent which include commercial airlines, MRO companies, the military, businesses and private individuals.
Straight-sliding doors for aircraft hangars
The flagship of the Esavian range, the TYPE 126 straight sliding door has been installed on the largest hangars in the world. With an unlimited span and heights from 6m to 40m, it is also the most popular and cost-effective form of hangar door available.
For these robust, steel-framed construction bottom-rolling, sliding doors there is an unlimited choice of cladding, glazing, colours and configurations. They incorporate full weather-sealing.
Insulated steel hangar door
The Flatfold door is a mid-range folding door from the Esavian line up. This bottom-rolling, insulated, steel door is suitable for openings up to 30m wide by 8m high. It is ideal for large helicopter or medium-sized aircraft hangars.
When open, the door leaves fold clear of the opening into small bunching areas, a 30m wide bi-parting door will bunch into under 2m beyond each jamb. This means there is a full opening width and height without compromising hangar space. The single bottom track is set flush into the floor.
Flatfold doors are power operated as standard (hand-wind versions are available) and no load-bearing portal frame is required as the door weight taken by the floor.
Inverter control provides smooth acceleration and deceleration during start-up and stopping and because the controls are positioned on the front edge of the door, an operative walks with the door as it is opened and closed. Door frames, mullions and sliding posts are galvanised prior to final finish, which are available in any colour.
