Aircraft Hangars

Why the Aviation Industry is Choosing Steel Hangars to Protect Their Aircraft

Airplanes are very costly, all-important machines, full of complex technology and
equipment. Failure to service and store them under climate-controlled and safe
environments is likely to result in major operational problems.
It is critical to store your aircraft in a dry, ecologically controlled environment. Aircrafts are
tremendous investments and repairs can be extremely costly. It isn’t recommended to
store airplanes outside as this may result in harm to the plane and excessive repairs for
Rust and metal corrosion are one of the main challenges that aircraft owners face. A
recently released two-year breakthrough study (initiated by NACE) estimated that the
annual direct cost of corrosion on the transportation sector in the United States is $29.7
billion! A lot of these costs could be avoided by using up-to-date corrosion controlling
practices. Preventing unnecessary exposure to elements is one of the most crucial aspects
in rust and metal prevention.

Reasons Metal aircraft hangars make caring for your aircraft a whole lot easier:

  • It will withstand all of which Mother Nature throws us. Including, but not limited torain, wind, lightening, snow, and earthquakes
  •  It requires no maintenance
  •  It is energy efficient
  •  Since steel is an inorganic material, mold cannot grow
  •  It is pest resistant
  •  It is cost-effective
  •  It is easy to install
  •  It will reduce your insurance rates

As an incombustible solid, metal provides crucial protection against dangerous hangar
fires.  Fire-resistant steel never becomes the point of detonation in a structural fire; nor
does it add energy to a fire like a wood enclosure does.
Choosing a metal building for your aircraft storage necessities will ensure the durability of
the aircraft you store and also maximize the value of your investment in a storage building.
A steel building is built to be strong and long-standing. It is made with the most robust and
highest quality materials. And with no maintenance requirements, you can concentrate on

keeping your aircraft fine-tuned instead of focusing on the integrity of the building you’re
using to store it in.
