Vintage Wings and Wheels Museum

Poplar Grove, IL

The Poplar Grove Vintage Wings & Wheels Museum along with a contributing member wanted to weatherize the WWII hangar doors to keep down drafts and make the museum more comfortable for events and patrons. JaCor was contracted to design, supply, and install a new full perimeter weather seals along with vertical rub plates.

  • Vertical galvanized rub plates were added to each door leaf for sealing the adjacent weather seal
  • Exterior bottom weather seals and galvanized retainers keep water from entering the museum
  • Top nylon brush seals were added to eliminate birds and keeping warm air inside the hangar.
  • Center bulb weather seals and vertical bypass weather seals were added to the leaves
