Protect Your Aircraft With Hangar Door Weather Seals

Our Weather Seals are made of commercial grade, nylon-inserted black neoprene. Our standard Weather Seal sizes should fit most applications, but you can also contact us to special order Weather Seals custom-cut to your requirements.

Properly sealed aircraft hangar doors prevent birds, wind, rain, and dirt from getting inside your hangar and damaging your valuable airplane. They can also increase energy efficiency, especially on large doors, all while improving your facility’s overall appearance.

Energy-saving Weatherstripping Prevents Heat Loss

The "before" photo shows a hangar door system 100 feet wide. The average gap along that length is 2 inches. This is like having a 4-foot-by-4-foot window open in the facility every day of the year — not even including the gaps in the vertical weather seals on each door.

Can you imagine how much heating and cooling was escaping from this hangar?

Typically, the people who own, run, or work in these hangars are not even aware of this problem. These top door seals are 28 feet off the ground. They are very hard to see from that distance.

The "after" photo shows how a hangar door weather seal sealed the entire gap to prevent air from escaping, resulting in extreme energy cost savings.

Nylon-inserted Neoprene Weather Seals

Our nylon-inserted neoprene is the industry gold standard to effectively seal bottom-rolling, bifold, and hydraulic aircraft hangar doors. Our weather seals are 3-ply commercial grade neoprene inserted with 2-ply nylon reinforced mesh. This material has excellent physical properties and weather resistance with a clean look to boot.

Our hangar door weather seals are available in 1/8" and 3/16” material. 1/8" material is typically used along the top and bottom of bifold and hydraulic doors, for vertical gaps of 2.5" or less and teardrop shapes. 3/16" material is typically used for gaps in excess of 2.5" and in areas where greater protection is needed.

Galvanized Seal Retainers: 16-gauge galvanized steel retainers are specifically designed and fabricated to securely hold our weather seals in place. 58” long retainers are made from weather resistant galvanized steel and pre-punched 14”' on center to accept our Tek#3 or Tek#5 fasteners. Retainers have a beveled angle detail to flash off the weather seal for a high-end finish.

Teks® Fasteners: Teks® Fasteners are self-drilling and self-tapping, carefully engineered for fast drilling and smooth tapping with less effort. Teks® Fasteners come in #3 for fastening to light gauge material and #5 for fastening to structural steel material. A Climasel finish provides excellent corrosion resistance and lower tapping torque.

Foam Compression Seal: Closed cell foam tapes are specification grade, firm-density, and black in color. This foam compression tape features a high-tack, rubber-based, pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) with a quick release liner. It’s easy to use and provides an excellent seal on the vertical edges of bi-fold and hydraulic hangar doors.
