It‘s no wonder metal buildings have become synonymous with aircraft hangars and storage buildings. Many metal building hangars have been in use for decades, some more than 50-years. Metal building systems offer great advantages to aircraft owners and airport operators because they can be configured to accommodate many types of hangar doors and offer wide, column-free, flexible spaces. Metal building frames are custom engineered and have the strength to span 200+ feet and reach to a height of over 90 feet to accommodate today's large aircraft as well as the sprinkler systems and fire protection systems needed to safely store such valuable property.
Modern metal building system designs have increased the roof span so that today's large commercial aircraft, even as large as the Boeing 777, can be stored or brought indoors for maintenance operations.
