Aircraft / Shipyard Hangar Doors by Gandhi Automations are designed for tough environment with extremely large openings. Aircraft and Shipyard hangar door are available in two form fabric hoist-up door and Sliding door. Both offer remarkable advantages for versatility and are suitable for aircrafts and ship’s in different sizes. Optimum reliability and operational safety are important design principles while designing and installing hangar doors.
We work closely with contractors, architects, and owners and manufacture a system that meets your exact desires or can retro-fit to meet the requirements of an existing structure. Sliding Aircraft Hangar Doors are recommended where no headroom is available and side clearances permitted, whereas fabric hoist Up doors obviates the need for heavy foundation under the door for bottom tracks. The hangar door system is built to undergo enormous wind loads and resist strong weather conditions. A stable operating movement is maintained due to the quality of the work assemblies.
Aircraft Hangar Doors – Quality Engineered
Fabric Hoist Up Doors are electrically operated specially designed doors for sites that do not have space on the side of the door opening for it to slide. This type of door obviates the need for heavy foundation under the door for bottom tracks. The door moves up and down in an aluminum guide with brush seals. It operates by lifting the bottom section upwards and stacking the intermediate sections one on top of the other. The fabric is folded on both sides of the door into pleats.
The belt hangar door system is controlled by two straps from the sides of the structure. Belts are coupled to the lower beam, the motor rotates the drum, which winds the belt, and lift the doors. When the drum belts are rolled out, the doors are lowered. These doors have a safety brake, which has two functions: The rupture of one of the belts will stop the movement of the whole structure. After closing the doors, the safety brake blocks movement of the doors – wind lock.
The rope cable doors lifting system differs from belt-operated doors in that the lower beam is lighter. Instead of the two sides of the belt, these gates operated by cables with a pitch of about 2 meters. This allows almost unlimited gate gauges. In addition, the cables are equally distributed over the entire width of the door, not just the edges, it ensures a smooth operation and minimizes the force load of the building.
With each rope cable a dual cable control sensor is installed so that in case of an emergency, rupture or loosening of one of the cables, the door is stopped. Cables are rolled in and rolled out by the drums.
Unlimited numbers of motors depend on the building design and dimensions. In very large sizes, the gate can be divided into several segments, assembling the mullion system.
Hoist up Doors
Gandhi Automation’s Pvt Ltd Fabric Hoist up Door is dealing of hoist up doors and can arrange installation, maintenance and after sales. The hoist-up doors consist of horizontal aluminum or steel profiles on which polyester fabric has been stretched on the inside and the outside. The horizontal profiles are guided in vertical rails, and are 100-1200 mm thick, depending on the door type and wind impact.
There is no limitation in horizontal and vertical dimensions of the doors. For very large openings the door can be divided into two or more doors with the help of mullions with load arrestors as a standard version and available in various colors. Each door is equipped with steel ropes or polyester straps (dependent on the door size and type). Polyester hoisting belts are linked to the crush-down protection. The ropes or straps do not touch the fabric thus preventing wearing. The stainless-steel hoist protection is activated and checked on each opening and closing movement. The crush-down protection ensures that a closed door cannot be lifted manually (break-in).
Doors are made of aluminum, and PVC fabric tent are very lightweight, but perfectly suitable for use in aggressive, corrosive environment and extreme weather conditions. These doors are resistant to wind, salt and temperature changes, as well as protection from sand and dust, mould and rot.

The large openings where the works by airports and naval ports is a strong issue obtain an easy, quick and safe passage from inside to outside, and vice versa.
With uptime 100%, airports cannot break on time.
Airport hangars must be in continuous service to preserve airplanes from weathering on the runways, then the steepest possible action must be performed by installers who work the final stage of the Gandhi Automation’s product.

Hangar Door Solutions
Hoist-up fabric doors – doors of virtually unlimited size. Because of the light weight and design simplicity, they are assembled very quickly and easily. Each fabric door is designed to meet specific project requirements. Our skilled engineers will design doors to fulfill specific customer requirements, and calculate the wind loads for this design. Our doors do not occupy a lot of usable space. Unlike other manufacturers, Gandhi Automation’s fabric doors do not need much space at the top of the building, so you do not lose headroom. Because of the particular and well-thought-out design, the door folds compactly when raised. Since you lose no headroom, it means smaller building construction costs! Doors can close very big openings, but are very light, so the building will receive minimum loads. In some cases, we recommend the division of a large opening into several smaller ones, using a movable pylons system.
This system for your building may be more effective than a single large leaf frame. With a high-speed requirement, the doors can be designed so that the gate would work at higher speeds. This would improve the speed of traffic flow and reduce energy consumption. Fabric doors are made of aluminum and PVC sheet and are very light, but perfectly suitable for use in aggressive, corrosive atmosphere and extreme weather conditions. These doors fit tightly on both sides of the frame and lower beam, are impervious to dust, sand and resistant to wind loads.
Individual options for your specific demand
Each hangar door is an individual solution. You can equip your hangar with exactly the features that you need for an effective operation. Here you can find a range of additional equipment. For requirements which go beyond these, our experienced specialists can develop a bespoke solution. Within our existing setup and installation of hangar door projects, we have already realized many special wishes. Just get in contact with us and let us know your specific need.
- Tail door
The installation of tail doors in your building leads to lower necessary heights of the main bottom rolling door and as a consequence to a reduction in cost
- Door adaption
Special adaptations for the enveloping of the fabric, enable a tight and sealed closure of the hangar door even in the aircraft is too long or too high for the hangar. This is also possible as a posterior adaptation of an existing door, e.g. in case of a utilization of an existing hangar for a bigger aircraft type.
- Integrated staff doors or vehicle doors
Small pass doors are perfect for the personal traffic, the hangar door can remain closed in this case. The solid door features an extremely low, barrier-free threshold
The most important feature in operating a fabric hoist-up door is that the door always stays in an exact horizontal position, even after many years of extensive use.
To maintain this horizontal state even after several years in operation, the condition of the cross-linked steel ropes is electronically controlled and very easy to adjust or tighten.
The cross-linked steel ropes guaranteeing an always horizontal operation of the specified doors
Minimal maintenance creates an operational economy for the installation of fabric hoist-up doors!
