Heli-Door System

Heli-Door advantages and features


This door has been specifically designed and manufactured by Rubb Buildings Ltd for military and aerospace projects and provides a robust and reliable door system.


The EFASS helicopter hangar door systems are designed to be quickly constructed and used easily in the field to support all military operations. This vertically folding door is electrically operated via two slow moving helical geared motors, with emergency hand operation capability.



The Heli-Door is constructed using lightweight standard EFASS aluminium roof sections and features high quality PVC fabric folding panels



The Rubb Heli-Door system is designed to European, CE-Marked standards and can be purchased as a stand alone product for military and commercial markets



Using the same aluminium sections from the EFASS military structure, the Heli-Door is adaptable and interchangeable to suit changing requirements



The EFASS Heli-Door can be insulated using the same double skin technology as the hangar covering membrane



The design of the Heli-Door provides full protection from external environmental elements to all assets inside the hangar



The Heli-Door has been designed with ease of operation in mind. Rubb Heli-Door systems can be opened and closed with a click of a button


Electrical specification

The EFASS Heli-Door is electrically operated using high quality, military specified ‘plug and play’ wiring and components


Self support / fixed

Rubb Heli-Doors can be used as a self supporting military hangar door using outrig tie downs. The doors can be configured to be fitted to a variety of structures



Like the EFASS structure, the Heli-Door is constructed on the ground then lifted into place. No additional mechanical plant is needed



As a stand alone structural item, the Heli-Door can also be designed to be retrofitted to existing hangars and buildings



As part of the EFASS structure range, Rubb can provide special training for military personnel to enable them to construct and operate the Heli-Door



The EFASS Heli-Door has also been designed with packing and transportation in mind. All parts are easily packed securely inside a 20ft ISO container
