Type 1 hangar
Type 1 Aircraft hangars are simple “steel portal framed” buildings with a typical clear span up to 30M or so. Ideally suited to light aircraft \ small jet applications, they are quick to build and economical on cost – but flexibility is restricted due to their limited clear span.
Integral workshops, offices and external lean to’s are also design possibilities – tied portal versions of this hangar type can increase their span to around 85m and multi-span or propped portal aircraft hangars can increase to virtually any width.
Doors can be single or multi track, multi leaf, with or without outriggers.
For clear span hangers up to 200M wide, Reidsteel patented “Archspan” structures are the way to go.
Even greater clear spans can be achieved using cantilever hangar systems.
