MAXDoor provides vertical lift fabric hangar doors for large shipyard door openings. A lot of action takes places inside of a shipyard hangar, and you need a customized door that will address environmental concerns and energy savings. Extreme inside and outside conditions along with a large door size opening can present many challenges at the shipyard site.
Energy loss and strong winds are contributing factors when choosing the right door for your shipyard. Doors open and close at shipyards continuously on a daily basis. A properly functioning and effective door can greatly decrease the amount of energy used to cool or heat shipyard facilities. In addition, at the hangar wind load capacity is paramount when selecting the right door. MAXDoors can be designed and built for a maintained windload of up to 150 m.p.h. MAXDoor utilizes a variety of beam size, spacing and material to provide the wind load required for any environment.
