When the opening is oversized but the budget isn't.

For extremely wide openings where cost is critical, the Roll-Tec™ Bottom Rolling Steel Aircraft Hangar Door is the logical choice. The rolling design is specified for openings of almost limitless width, with your choice of panel configuration. Yet for smaller-to-mid-size hangar door openings, the Roll-Tec™ Bottom Rolling Steel Door is also a suitable alternative to the Premier Door. Unlike our competition, Wilson not only engineers our bottom rolling steel doors, we fabricate the doors as well. This oversight ensures from start to finish, your Roll-Tec™ Bottom Rolling Steel Aircraft Hangar Door is designed, produced and shipped on time and to exacting specifications.

Pre-construction engineering of Roll-Tec™ Bottom Rolling Steel Aircraft Doors

Pre-construction engineering eliminates the need for cumbersome and costly structural alterations and ensures smooth installation. Our Application Engineers work directly with your engineers to ensure building and door system compatibility.

Application-specific configuration of Roll-Tec™ Bottom Rolling Steel Aircraft Doors

You can choose from single-directional, bi-parting, tail or floating group styles to accommodate space constraints and other requirements.

Robust steel door construction seals against all weather, including hurricane force winds

With custom design for every door, Roll-Tec™ Bottom Rolling Steel Aircraft Hangar Doors can be specified to meet the most demanding codes for wind load. And each panel is fully weather stripped with brush seal and rubber-encased foam seals.

Simple door control - with Posi-Lock™, soft starts and soft stops

A simple three-button control box with Wilson's Posi-Lock™ door control allows for easy door operation and the ability to stop the door anywhere in its travel. And a standard AC-Drive allows for smooth door movement with soft starting and stopping to save wear and tear. Dual-drives in the lead panel assure efficient, positive operation without panel "jogging".

Single-Panel Hydraulic Doors by Wilson

The result is a single-panel door that weighs 40% less than comparable steel single-panel doors - allowing for building savings and the use of low-pressure hydraulics. Clear-Tec™ features modular, bolt-together construction - so no field welding is required which equates to quick and very easy installation. Wilson's Clear-Tec™ is the industry's ONLY single-panel hydraulic door manufactured of lightweight 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum.
