Hangar roofing and wall cladding
Whether you are looking for an aircraft hangar roof or roofing materials for a steel framed warehouse or storage building, we have the right product.
Single Skin Roof Sheeting and Wall Sheeting is obviously the most economic way of covering steel framed storage warehouses.
Double skin insulated roof sheeting or wall sheeting or both will reduce condensation and reduce temperature change in a storage Hangar. Insulation is essential if the storage space is to be heated or cooled. A double skin roof will reduce the chances of leaks. The fibreglass insulation compacts well for sea freight. If insulation of storage Hangar is required then the double skin system is possibly the most cost effective solution. U-values can vary from 0.45 W/°C/m² to 0.20 W/°C/m².
Composite Double Skin
Composite Double Skin Sandwich Boards can be used for roofing steel framed storage warehouses. A nearly flat mini rib composite sandwich panel can be used on walls. It can be self finish inside and out and can have windows and doors fitted for a smart look. It is often used around main entrances and offices where the rest of the storage shed is clad with type 2.
Plain finishes are cheaper then enamels or plastisols. Plain galvanised sheeting is the cheapest option. Plain Aluzinc is only slightly more, and will remain attractive and sound for much longer. Mill Finish Aluminium is also available but is rarely suitable.
Various different enamels are available on all roof and wall sheeting types for storage warehouses. Lighter shades are recommended as they reduce temperature change. Polyester and Acrylic finishes are suitable in some applications and longer lasting Tres Haute Durabilité (THD) and PFV2 enamels may also be available and represent longer term value. Double sided enamels last better and cost more.
Various Plastisol PVC coatings make good attractive finishes for steel framed storage buildings. Light colours are recommended particularly for sunny places. The plastisol is more durable and abrasion resistant than enamels. For buildings exposed to damaging environmental conditions, double sided Plastisol (200 microns outside and 100 microns inside) is often the best long term solution.
