Hangar Build Styles
Simple Hangar. Span up to 60m
Simple Steel Portal Framed Buildings are ideal for small hangars up to 65m span. Tied Portals may be stretched to 85m. Multispan and propped portals can go to any span.
Segmental Tied Hangar. Span up to 200m or more
Bigger Aircraft Hangars can be made of REIDsteel Segmental Tied trusses able to span up to 200m or more.
Economy can be obtained with “Glove” Hangars where the span and the doors are made to fit a specific aircraft and the nose/fuselage front half of the hangar is reduced in size. It’s a little cheaper to heat or cool. But remember: no-one has ever said “I made this hangar too big!”.
