Making a Successful Hangar – Part 3

Cladding – REIDsteel source all of their cladding from the leading worldwide suppliers and our in-house draughtsmen detail each panel and trim. Find out more

  • Single Skin Cladding – With an internal white face and external colour to suit. Ideal where a constant internal temperature does not have to be maintained.
  • Double Skin Cladding – Two steel sheets separated by a spacer bar and filled with fiberglass insulation. An economic solution to provide excellent thermal performance. The liner panel has a white finish to be seen within the building and the external face can be in colours and coatings to suit location or environment. This system can be enhanced to give up to a “two hour fire rating”.
  • Composite Wall Panels – Insulated with rigid foam up to 150mm thickness. These panels come in a variety of profiles and colours to suit an architectural design.
  • Translucent Panels – Both roof and wall translucent panels can be provided to give a source of natural light.

Ridge Vents and/or Louvres – An inexpensive method of providing natural ventilation for your hangar.

Roof Safety System – roof mounted running line system that allows for controlled movement of maintenance engineers or permanent edge protection can be provided as an alternative, which provides freedom of movement around the roof whilst offering ultimate safety. Permanent edge protection can be provided as an alternative.

Gutters and Downpipes – Bespoke to each project and manufactured in house to suit the specific environment and rainfall intensity.

Cranes – REIDsteel can either supply cranes or detail and supply the beams to support overhead cranes of up to 40m spans and 50 tonnes in capacity. Heavy components such as internal cranes will need to be planned into the design at the very early stages so that the hangar structure is fully designed to support them.

Glazing – REIDsteel has its own glazing division. Windows and curtain walling should be planned into the design at the very early stages so that the hangar structure is fully designed to support and accommodate them. Find out more

Mezzanine Floors – We can supply and erect mezzanine floors able to accept loads of up to 1.5 tonnes per square metre.

Walkways and Gantries – REIDsteel design and build light and efficient walkways and gantries for construction or permanent use.

Staircases – We design, manufacture and fit external and internal steel staircases in a range of designs to suit.
