Dynamic Aviation Weatherization

Higher Power hydraulic door; Bridgewater, VA

Dynamic Aviation has two large Higher Power hydraulic hangar doors. The large monolithic panels moved left to right inconsistently when closing, causing irregular gaps along the vertical edges, header, and sill. JaCor was contracted to design a better solution to seal the hydraulic doors.

  • 1/8"-thick bulb weather seals were added to the building jamb and adjacent door jamb. Each seal extended into the 3" space approximately 2" to create an overlap and consistently seal the door when closing
  • 3/16"-thick weather seals and galvanized retainers closed off the gap across the header
  • 1/8"-thick weather seals and galvanized retainers were used for the bottom bulb seal
