Biggin Hill Airport, UK
The brief required a 120m span hangar, split into three areas, two of which had to be accessible simultaneously, with a maximum height of 15m and one span designed to house a Boeing Business Jet (BBJ).
Biggin Hill Airport Ltd chose the successful partnership of Civils Contracting Ltd and Reidsteel to fulfil this brief. The hangar door for our unique solution has nine slabs and three tracks with a tailgate door. Three slabs are designed to jump the gap dictated by the BBJ requirement and the remaining two spans are high enough at 9.2m tall to allow the entry of the more usual stamp of business jet.
These doors are sheeted in microrib profile composite panels manufactured by Kingspan and a particular feature are the personnel doors which have no threshold to them. The Hangar also features service doors for towing trucks or deliveries.For more information, contact sales:
