Helicopters tend to be more expensive and more fragile when compared to equivalent fixed wing aircraft; therefore protection from the elements and other hazards is vital.
REIDsteel design and construct helicopter and aircraft hangars all around the world. We can design and build a custom hangar for any type of helicopter or aircraft flying today be it large or small.
Helicopter hangar for Surrey Air Ambulance
Surrey Air Ambulance is a vital emergency service for the people of Surrey and Sussex. Their new REIDsteel helicopter hangar in Dunsfold Park spans 16m x 16m, and is 6m high, this now enables them to run an efficient Air Ambulance service that can cover all areas of Surrey, as well as Sussex, and can deliver patients to the nearest hospital within ten minutes.
In addition to the hangar itself, REIDsteel provided all the accessories including the steel hangar door, which has 8 slabs on 4 tracks, giving an entrance 12m wide by 5m high. The door is manually operated.
Hangar for the Royal Naval Air Station, Culdrose, Helston Cornwall
Royal Navy Airstation Hangar and Doors. This 2000m2 Hangar houses the Royal Navy's new Merlin search and rescue helicopter.
The hangar has two sets of 6 leaf "cascade" type rolling doors, one set at each end, with outriggers to allow full width access. They are manually operated through a cable and gearbox mechanism turned by a large handle.
Helicopter Hangar, Mauritania
This helicopter hangar was constructed for Woodside Mauritania. It is a multi-span, propped portal building with REIDsteel Archspan frames. The hangar measures 25m x 25m, and is 5m high, with two lean-tos on either side.
There are 5.5m outriggers on each side of the doorway, meaning doors can be rolled back to give maximum clear entry of 25m. Both the hangars doors and personnel doors were manufactured by REIDsteel.
REIDsteel also supplied a 2 tonne EOT crane for the hangar, as well as incorporating crane beams and rails into the steelwork.
