Plenum Doors are used to provide controlled airflow in aircraft paint hangars. The airflow plenum may be contained with the door, as is the case with Swing Plenum doors, or it may be located between two sets Steel Sliding doors. The interior face of these types of doors will typically contain diffusers and/or filters to modify the incoming air flow.

Plenum Doors can generally be classified into one of two categories based upon the type of operation:
SWING PLENUM HANGAR DOORS:
These doors are constructed with a large plenum between the exterior and interior faces. Diffusers and/or filters are mounted in the interior face. Supply air to the hangar is introduced into the plenum and flows under controlled conditions into the hangar space. These doors swing on a pivot and ride on a ground mounted curved rail.
STEEL SLIDING PLENUM HANGAR DOORS:
These doors typically consist of two independent sets of Steel Sliding Hangar Doors. The exterior set of doors is generally the same as any normal hangar door. The interior set of doors has diffusers and/or filters mounted in its interior face. Supply air to the hangar is introduced into the plenum formed between the two sets of doors and flows under controlled conditions into the hangar space.
