A PowerLift door will make your old building feel and function like new! Access to this old hangar was via a complicated system of 6 overhead doors, which created large maintenance headaches. The center door was higher to allow taller tail aircraft access. All six doors were failing when the owner called PowerLift.
PowerLift designed a twin outside mount retrofit installation, substantially increasing clear opening height across the entire building. With a remote operator, pilots can now open either PowerLift door from the cockpit while taxiing in.

Wider doors make for easier access. They can eliminate the necessity of moving stationary aircraft or equipment to allow others to enter or exit your building. If you store smaller vehicles like ATVs, mowers, snowmobiles or motorcycles in your hangar or shop a wide door makes leaving quick and easy.
At any given height, increasing the width of your PowerLift door doesn’t add a lot to the cost.You’ll appreciate the simplified access your wider door provides for many years to come.
This customer needed a 14′ clear door opening – a full 2′ higher than the 12′ sidewall height of this RV storage building. The design solution was a ‘hat style’ truss for the center bay of the building along with a PowerLift door. We can meet almost any challenge – just tell us about your door design objectives.
PowerLift hidden cylinder doors and walls are just what the name implies – the cylinders and lines are hidden from view in the closed position.
As you can see in the picture above, the PowerLift glass wall in this room has the appearance of a fixed window when closed. When weather permits, it opens and becomes a pass through serving window with seating and/or counter space on the inside.
Contact us and enjoy a personal PowerLift glass wall in your home. You can have lunch or drinks in front of it while enjoying the view any time of year. In seconds you can partly or fully open your PowerLift wall to be in tune with the weather or your mood of the moment.
A PowerLift door is a ‘better than new’ choice for old buildings! This well-maintained Quonset hangar (see bottom picture below) had old sliding doors that were stuck open. The new PowerLift door with its windows and walk door greatly improves the hangar’s appearance and function. While taxiing in, the pilot can open it at the touch of a remote.
