Jewers Doors has announced details of a project it recently completed for Gulfstream Aerospace.
The company was awarded a contract to supply and install three sets of its Esavian Type 126 power operated steel sliding doors as part of the construction of Gulfstream’s purpose-built 225,000sq ft customer support service centre at Farnborough Airport.
Work on the service centre was completed in summer 2020. It can accommodate 13 large-cabin aircraft and offers maintenance, repair and overhaul services, interior refurbishments and aftermarket modifications.
Jewers Doors said it worked closely with the main contractor Volker Fitzpatrick and architects Gebler Tooth. Each set of doors was manufactured to suit a clear opening 67.4 metres wide by 9.25 metres high.
Each set of doors is in four equal leaves, the company noted, with each leaf being 16.98 metres wide. All four leaves move independently of one another within their 67.4 metre wide opening.
Each leaf is fitted with a continuous band of double-glazed windows at eye level and there are two personnel doors in each bay of hangar doors, Jewers said.
