In May 2019 work began on a purpose-built 225,000 square foot Customer Support Service Centre at Farnborough Airport and was completed on time, amidst the challenges of a global pandemic, in the summer of 2020.

The new facility which can easily accommodate 13 large-cabin aircraft, offers maintenance, repair and overhaul services, as well as interior refurbishments and after-market modifications.

Working closely with the main contractor Volker Fitzpatrick and architects; Gebler Tooth, Jewers Doors were delighted to be awarded the contract to supply and install three sets of our Esavian Type 126 power operated Steel Sliding doors for this prestigious project.

Each set of doors were manufactured to suit a clear opening 67.4 metres wide by 9.25 metres high. Each set of doors is in four equal leaves, each leaf is 16.98 metres wide running on four tracks – 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.
