Temporary Structures used for Hangars
The Shield Group manufacture a wide range of structures that can be utilised in a multitude of forms.
One of these is as a hangar to both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.
The costs of both ownership and running these aircrafts mean that when not in use they should be stored in such a way that protects them from the elements.
The complexity of such a building is making sure the entrance is wide enough for the wingspan and the rotary span.
Some rotary aircraft such as a Bell Jet Ranger has a simple ‘bank-front’ rotors thus making the opening in the building to be much less wide as the aircraft only have 2 rotors. With an aircraft such as a AW139 the rotors are fixed, and the entrance needed to be over 13m.
As with other temporary storage structures these hangars can be supplied in a variety of colours, often to blend in with the surroundings, such as an airfield.
As the structures are supplied without any flooring, it is simple to just to push the aircraft directly into the hangar.
