At the time it was the only integrated Hangar and VIP lounge facility in Dubai South.

In 2017 as part of their expansion plans, DC Aviation commissioned a 2nd hangar to be built, the 6,800 sqm hangar more than doubled their hangar capacity and enabled them to significantly increase the number and size of aircraft they could accommodate.

The doors for hangar 2 are a set of multi-directional Esavian Type 126 Sliding hangar doors 55.5 metres wide by 13.5 metres high with a centrally located tailgate, increasing the clear opening to 16.7 metres.

Both sets of doors are electrically operated and are configured as six individually operated door leaves which travel on three bottom tracks. The door leaves from Hangar 2 have been designed so that they can travel into Hangar 1 which allow for a full clear opening for Hangar 2.  Each set of doors are complete with 3 personnel doors and specially designed, twin roller shutter door tailgates. Each door is fitted with proximity sensors and anti-collision sensors on each of the leading door leaf edges to allow accurate movement to the closed position.

Ben Pritchard, Regional Sales Manager at Jewers Doors Ltd (Dubai Branch), said:

“Repeat orders for our Esavian doors, such as this for DC Aviation, are always welcome as a definitive statement of customer satisfaction. We were chosen for this project by the Al Futtaim Group Real Estate due to our unrivalled experience in the UAE.”
