Machine Tool & Fab’s Para-Port Door division has landed a sizable contract to construct 14 aircraft hangar doors which will be installed at a US Military base in Afghanistan. The doors will be going on hangars that house both manned aircraft and the unmanned drones. These doors will be joining a previous shipment of eight Para-Port doors that were shipped there a little over a year ago. Para-Port Doors offer significant cost, maintenance and safety advantages over conventional sliding and overhead doors. They can be readily installed on new installations or as a replacement for existing doors. These are custom made doors that can span up to an amazing 145 feet wide and 50 feet tall. The doors are a fabric bottom-roll door that resembles an upside-down window shade where the roll is at the bottom. They are driven via one or two electric motors, depending on the size of the door, which in turn drives a gearbox mechanism that rolls the fabric door up from the bottom, exposing the door opening as the door is rolled up. Machine Tool & Fab Corp. also engineers and manufactures turnkey automation equipment for industry. It provides a full line of both machine shop and fabrication shop services, creating anything made from metals and plastics.
