TTAD thanks hangar tenants for their participation. Since the installation of the hangar door momentary safety switches, we have had ZERO INCIDENTS. In fact, when hangar doors have malfunctioned, from either component fatigue or operator error, the hangar door has been stopped before developing into a damaging and/or dangerous condition. Maintenance personnel were able to fix the situation more efficiently and without being put in an unsafe position.
