Ground Support Equipment Doors
In many facilities due to weather conditions or sensitive operations, it is important to provide ground support equipment access without the need to move the main doors. Vertical lift, rolling shutter or coiling, or swing doors can be used within the main doors. Proper planning is needed to ensure clearances and non-interference with the host door systems.
