Aircraft hangar door design, construction and installation virtually began with Wilson Industrial Doors, and now with thousands of new installations every year, the original Wilson bi-fold door design continues to dominate the general aviation market from coast to coast. Since its inception in 1956, Wilson has set the standard worldwide for aircraft hangar doors; proving its superior quality again and again by withstanding harsh elements such as hurricanes and extreme desert conditions.
Aircraft hangar construction varies, which is why there is no one-type-fits-all door that suits everyone's needs. The building structure, environment and type of covering being used all need to be considered when determining the best aircraft hangar door design for you. Bi-fold and single-panel hydraulic doors offer different benefits for different aviation applications. Consult one of our application specialists for more information on which design is best suited to your needs as well as for assistance in specifying Wilson Industrial Doors.
The gold standard of hangar doors
Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Wilson Premier bi-folding door features light-weight construction that reduces the need for any extra structural support. Yet they are stronger than steel and will stand up to the elements in virtually any environment without corroding. And their low-profile construction saves valuable interior space.
With their clean, crisp aluminum frame, unparalleled fabrication and attention to detail, unmatched standard options and proven lowest lifetime ownership costs, it's no wonder Wilson's Premier aluminum bi-folding doors have been a favorite of the aviation industry since the company's founding in the 1950's. And they have garnered a loyal and growing customer base ever since.
Low cost, high value
Some jobs just beg for the lowest possible cost - period. Well, now you can fill that hole in the wall without burning a hole in your pocket - and still get the trouble-free operation and value-added benefits you would expect from a Wilson door. This steel bi-folding door features pushbutton operation, solid Wilson-designed-and-built operators, cable tensioners and over-travel limit switches that simply outshine the competition. All at prices you wouldn't think possible.
When you purchase a Wilson hangar door for your facility, you get the kind of upfront sales guidance and design and manufacturing diligence that simply makes projects go smoother and faster. We call it "The Tailwind Effect" and it's a phenomenon you can expect to experience throughout the life of your door.
In addition to upfront sales and design diligence, you can also expect great follow-through on delivery and installation of your Wilson door. You can choose to have your door installed by Wilson or to have a Wilson Field Supervisor work alongside your crew, ensuring the door is assembled and rigged correctly and the limits are adjusted properly. Count on your Wilson Sales Engineer to coordinate with you, the project designer, contractor, or building manufacturer, as appropriate, to handle the details to ensure your door is delivered and installed on time, as promised.
With Wilson's Premier door, you actually get single-source responsibility throughout the entire process, including delivery via one of Wilson's company-owned vehicles, as well as supervised assembly and installation by a trained Wilson operator.
Should you ever experience a problem with any Wilson door, you need only contact us and you'll receive prompt support from knowledgeable customer support engineers. And, if need be, our nationwide service crew can assist you. Because, you see, Wilson's tailwinds never diminish.
