Hangar door retrofit, Improve efficency

KLM UK Engineering makes an old hangar bigger and better

Specialising in MRO, KLM UK Engineering serves major airline operators including TNT Airways, Britair, CityJet, KLM and Air France. Based at Norwich International Airport, the company needed more hangar space to accommodate its rapid growth. It chose to re-furbish and expand an existing hangar instead of building from scratch.


  • Access across most of the hangar width, for full utilisation of hangar capacity.
  • Fast, reliable performance.
  • Long lifetime. Low operating cost.
  • Excellent air tightness and wind resistance.
  • Minimal maintenance need. Easy to repair.
  • No floor tracks. Practically no door footprint.
  • Extendable 10-year warranty on all components.
