How a Military Hangar Can Protect Your Aircraft

Military HangarA quality built military hangar is essential for storing aircraft safely away from direct sun exposure, which can otherwise wreak havoc on the aircraft’s paint job, sensitive avionics equipment, and interior temperature. In fact, the lifespan of an aircraft can be greatly extended simply by providing shelter for when it’s not in use.

If you’re in charge of finding a military hangar for your organization, you want to make sure that you can find one big enough to house your aircraft, but also one that can be expanded if necessary. Some temporary structure providers offer a cookie-cutter approach to their products, meaning there may only be one or two sizes available and no built-in functionality for growing. You may find these lack of options limiting for your needs.

Another thing to consider when searching for a canvas structure to use as a military hangar is long-lasting durability. The canvas should be rip-resistant and flame-retardant, and it should be held together by industrial-strength steel. Additionally, you should have the option of engineering the structure to withstand excess wind and snow loads. That way, your hangar will protect your aircraft for years and through any sort of weather.

Lastly, you should have a choice of accessories to fully customize your military hangar to your organization’s needs. For instance, hangar doors, specialized lighting, and an HVAC system are all options you may need and any good structure provider should be able to include them.
