Steel Aircraft Hangars – Customized & Secure
The Best Protection for Private or Commercial Aircraft of all Sizes
Steel hangars are lightweight yet strong and built to last, offering maximum stability and wind resilience.
DIY kits can be customized to include pilot briefing rooms, training areas, waiting areas, office space, workshops and more. From storage to servicing, nothing compares to steel for speed of construction, weather and fireproofing, and unlimited design options.
Detailed below are some of the most important features and benefits associated with modern metal buildings:
As a pilot, you would rather be in the air than performing repairs on your hangar. Using a Pre-engineered Steel Building (PEB) for your airplane storage will reduce or eliminate many of your hangar maintenance concerns. There are several hazards inherent in wood-framed buildings that do not exist in steel structures. Consider just a few of the advantages of steel construction that will help increase the number of carefree hours you will be able to spend up in your beloved aircraft, knowing that it will always have a safe and secure shelter to come home to.
There are two other important factors to consider in planning for hangar construction. There is no such thing as a “standard” aircraft hangar, just as there is no such thing as a standard aircraft. For this reason, pre-engineered hangars are highly customizable. The two most typical basic designs are the Quonset-hut and straight-wall styles, each with its own advantages. But both of them can be engineered in various sizes and configurations, making it possible to build your hangar to meet your exact needs and specifications. In addition, they can be finished with any of an almost endless variety of paints, trims, and other finishes to create the loftiest—or the most humble—look that you want to achieve. Even the doors and door mechanisms are fully customizable and self-installable.
With a pre-engineered steel aircraft hangar, you can build to the future right from the beginning. Unlike with other building materials, PEBs modular and component-based systems require little demoing of the existing building to be able to add on to it. And if enlarging your hangar is something you can foresee even from the beginning, components can be pre-engineered for specific locations making future expansion a snap. So, when sitting down to discuss design with your PEB manufacturer, it would be prudent to consider some factors that may play into the design process. In addition to your current needs, do you plan to purchase additional aircraft in the future? What amenities do you want now, and which ones will you like to add later? Will your hangar also be used for storage, maintenance, and repairs? Will it be used for commercial flying, either now or in the future? If so, will you need office space, a waiting lounge area, a training room, or a briefing room? With a little foresight and planning, expansion can be just as quick and painless an initial construction.
* Whereas Pre-engineered Steel Buildings are easily assembled, a do-it-yourselfer may still want to consider hiring a contractor who specializes in hangar construction due to the complexity of this type of project.
