Our Tips for Building a Steel Aircraft Hangar

Izzie | 12/07/21

If you’re in the market for an aircraft hangar then you’ve come to the right place. When it comes to safeguarding your aircraft, you simply can’t beat a KiwiSpan hangar. Whether you’re looking to house a helicopter, small plane, or something else, let us design the perfect hangar to protect your investment.  

A steel aircraft hangar is an excellent way to keep your aircraft safe and protected from the weather when they aren’t in use. But, before you jump in head first to your airplane hangar or helicopter hangar project, there are a few things you need to consider. 

 

Location 

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again; location is one of the most important elements to consider when it comes to the design of your aviation structure. In New Zealand, there are aviation requirements to be considered but luckily for you, KiwiSpan have completed a multitude of hangar projects so we can guide you through the process. Along with taking standards into account we can also assist with choosing a location for your structure based on the terrain, wind ratings and more. 

 

Design 

With our flexible designs and innovative technology, we can guarantee that we can build a hangar to your exact measurements. What’s more, our hangars are built with kiwi fabricated steel so you can rest assured that your hangar will last the distance. 

There are several key things to consider when it comes to the design of your hangar: 

 

  • What type of aircraft you will be storing 
  • How many aircraft you will be storing 
  • The size of your aircraft 
  • Whether you will require roller or sectional doors
  • The span of your shed to ensure easy maneuverability
  • If the hangar will have any other purpose than only storing your aircraft 

 

After you’ve taken the above statements into consideration you will be in a much better position to begin designing your aircraft hangar. Why not give our 3D Designer Tool a go so you can truly visualise what your steel aircraft hangar would look like. 

Plus, don’t forget to futurecast here. If you think you may be looking to acquire more aircraft in the future, you’ll want to ensure that you’ll have enough space in your hangar. 

 

Clearly, there are a few things to take into consideration when it comes to designing your own aircraft hangar, and if you want it to be perfect then you’re in the right place! At KiwiSpan, we offer bespoke aircraft hangars to ensure your small or large aircraft can be stored securely.
