New Cypriot Hangar Complex

Assa Abloy Entrance Systems has announced that it has secured an order from EDT Offshore for the installation of a Megadoor hangar door for a new hangar complex in Cyprus.
EDT is a supplier of high specification offshore support vessels to the oil and gas industry and also operates two corporate aircraft.  With the construction and completion of a hangar project at Paphos airport EDT is hoping accommodate its own corporate aircraft and eventually offer a handling services for visiting business aircraft.
Matthew Webb of EDT commented, “The hangar door was a major consideration in the overall design of the building and after considerable research, we selected Megadoor vertical lifting fabric doors because of their ability to operate in extreme environments and maximise the useable space, as no side pockets or floor tracks are required.  Megadoor design engineers have assisted our consultants with the door and building interface and we look forward to a successful completion of the project.” 
The door is split in two, separated by a swing up mullion, giving a clear opening of 105ft(32m)-wide by 29ft 6in (9m)-high enabling the hangar to accept all business type aircraft up to Global Express and Gulfstream G650 size.  The hangar’s curtain will be translucent to allow natural daylight in and thus reduce the need for artificial lighting.
