“The door is everything!”

"What I like most about this door system is the ease of operation. We can't get a aircraft in, we can't get an aircraft out without a door that we know is reliable - that responds when we need it to in a variety of situations and elements - so, the door is everything!”

-Facility Manager of MN hangar

Tip-Up Canopy doors are built to endure the heaviest of wind loads. Ideal for aircraft hangar doors.

Superior Performance

This door system provides a weather-tight seal and maintains a quick, yet stable motion. Get maximum access for your hangar with minimal side room requirements, all with the benefit of long-lasting dependability.

The one piece Tip-Up Canopy hangar door system has multiple wire rope pick-up points attached to the front of the door framing that are run to the counterweight and floor mounted operator assembly. The wire rope provided has a minimum safety factor of 5:1 at each of the pick-up points.

Tip-Up doors arrive to your facility complete including the side tracks, curved top tracks, the operating hardware, pre-wired electrical controls, wire rope pick-up brackets, the automatic sill locks, side and top roller assemblies.

This door system is shop fabricated in modular assemblies to minimize field installation costs.

Speed

Tip-Up Canopy doors clear an opening at a quick rate of speed. This hangar door system is available in up to 130’W x 32’H.

  • 120’ x 30’ Tip-Up Door = 55 Seconds to Open
  • 75’ x 20’ Tip-Up Door = 38 Seconds to Open

The high-speed operation of the Tip-Up door minimizes heating and cooling losses and reduces waiting time, increasing productivity and energy efficiency.

Vertical Movement

The opening vertical rise movement is followed by a simultaneous tilting and rising motion to the horizontal full open position, with the bottom portion of the door projecting outside to form a canopy.
