Megadoor vertical lifting fabric doors were originally designed for industrial environments requiring very large door openings and frequent operation, with requirements on reliable operation at high wind loads, temperature extremes and harsh environments. Megadoor has served successfully in these conditions for over 30 years, and has proved itself again and again in the aviation industry.

All Megadoor systems come with a patented lifting belt system, which needs no lubrication and very little maintenance.

For convenience and peace of mind, our service staff and partners around the world provide professional preventive maintenance that guarantees trouble-free door operation.

Many paint hangar environments are controlled with Megadoor vertical lifting fabric doors. Megadoor provides the lowest level of air infiltration compared to any large door in the industry. The unique design utilizes a single, PVC-coated polyester fabric sheet that is attached to the exterior and interior of the door system. This eliminates any air infiltration through the door or at the door head. The Megadoor fabric envelops the side-guides, creating a unique double seal that does not require maintenance or replacement. The only maintainable seal on the entire door system is the heavy duty EPDM rubber bottom loop that seals the door to the floor. Together, these Megadoor features ensure that air infiltration is low enough to make Megadoor an ideal fit for use by NASA in its satellite clean rooms.

A Megadoor solution is not only the best choice for new hangar door installations. It is also the best way to bring older hangars into the modern age, ensuring that door closures fulfill the stringent requirements of FAA and EASA regulations. In many cases, by adding an extension to the front of the hangar, it is possible to accommodate larger aircraft, thus generating additional income and a higher return on investment. All over the world Megadoor have helped customers in virtually every type of industry create better opening solutions and grow their business.
