Hangar Door - Winterized

Hangar Door - Winterized

Is your hangar door ready for winter?

Just as you would winterize your car, you must routinely service your door before extreme conditions like cold temperatures, ice and snow set in. The same thing goes for hot climates with sand and dust.
Here are some basics.
  1. Weatherstripping visual check - is it worn, ragged or torn? It's kinda like changing your wiper blades. It's a must do every few years! Plus, you'll save big money on heating & cooling costs.
  2. Is your drive system in good shape? Inspect it now with a good once over. It's just like a vehicle 15 point inspection. It never hurts to be proactive.
  3. Upgrade to a dual drive system. Motorize 2 wheels for better traction in icy or wet slippery conditions. It's just like getting a 4-wheel drive for off-roading.

  4. Heated rails - Spokane's weather typically is not considered harsh enough to warrant the extra cost of heated rails, however that year, Spokane suffered the snowiest November on record with 25.7 inches of snow. Luckily, with Spec-Dor’s revolutionary design, the bottom rails can be retro-fitted with sill track heating elements. The integrated pull pits allow the heating cables to be installed and provide easy access for maintenance.
