McDill AFB Retrofit

Tampa, Florida
Door Configuration: 
5-Leaf, Bi-Parting Northern Door System
Three 200’ wide x 38’ high openings

Florida's hurricane season prompted an aggressive installation schedule for this dramatic hangar door system at McDill Airforce Base. Norco worked closely with the contractor to ensure timely delivery of materials and handled on-site installation. The glass panels and door design were developed with historical accuracy of the hangar in mind.

  • Turnkey project from demo to commissioning
  • 90% glass faced door panels
  • Rails are shielded from the elements when doors are closed
  • Panels controlled from inside
  • For added safety, electrical door interlock switch disables the drive door when personnel door is open
