King-Size Solutions

The work processes in an aircraft hangar are very demanding and require maximum organisation, efficiency and reliability. These requirements have to be fulfilled and Butzbach offers full support to master this task.

We support you right from the start in all planning considerations. We advise you on the size and position of your hangar door as well as on the opening principle, type of drive and choice of filling material. We take your safety equipment and architectural design aspects into account. Our specialists are your competent partners for all questions concerning the conception and planning of your hangar door.

Opening types HANGAR DOORS

Opening principle sliding door

Open and close your hangar exactly where it is needed. Due to Butzbach sliding doors with freely movable door leaves each door element can be moved individually on the bottom rails..


Opening principle telescopic sliding door

With the Butzbach telescopic door, the individual door elements are linked together and are opened and closed simultaneously. This reduces the operating effort and provides quick access to the hangar by pushing a button.


Opening principle around-the-corner-door

With the Butzbach around-the-corner door each door element is guided along the inside or outside of the hangar side wall. This is a great advantage when space is limited or for special hangar shapes such as round halls. The entire width of the hall is always available when opening the around-the-corner door.

Suitable for every application


The floor tracks are connected to a drainage and cleaning system. A rail heater can also be integrated if required by the customer.


Fuselage modifications allow the airtight closing of the hangar door for particularly long or tall aircraft. These modifications can of course be retrofitted, for example, if you want to use an existing hangar for a larger type of aircraft.


The tail door is a local flip-up door in the upper door guide. As a result of the local opening (or adapted opening on the vertical fin of the aircraft), the door height of the total hangar can be reduced and cost savings made. The cost savings are noticeable both for the hangar door and for the building itself. Use of fibreglass filling is possible.


Form follows function: We would be happy to integrate smaller doors directly in your hangar door, making it easier for cars, vans and trucks to pass through.


Pass doors ensure that staff can enter and leave quickly without having to open the hangar door. We can also offer designs that meet the requirements for wheelchair accessibility or emergency exits. Possible to coordinate with central building control systems in a variety of designs
