Aircraft Hangar Doors
The doors that house some of the largest aircrafts in the world obviously need to have a reliable, heavy duty method of opening and shutting every day. In the past, hangar doors were predominantly run by festoon systems that would commonly break and require regular maintenance from everyday wear and tear. Today, two of the U-S Safety Trolley products provide joint-free mobile electrification systems that have been proven to effectively operate the hangar doors of the world’s largest airlines.
The Tri-Bar/Four-Bar mobile electrification system contains solid copper conductors that come in 100 and 125 amps. The system is jointless, meaning drastically less maintenance is required compared to a jointed system, and is capable of extending for hundreds of feet; making it the perfect solution for large hangar doors.
Somewhat similar to Tri-Bar/Four-Bar, PowerGlide is a conductor bar system with retractable wheels for simple insertion and maintenance. This system is rated at 90 amps and is a crowd pleaser due to its compact and lightweight design. In addition to being easy to install, PowerGlide’s aluminum housing and optional closure strip ensure dirt and grime-which is bound to build up around hangar doors- stays out of the power path.
