Fabric Structures for Private, Commercial, and Military Aircraft Hangars

Aviation HangarsPlanes, helicopters, and other aircraft that are stored without adequate shelter can quickly deteriorate under the sun – the paint can fade and electronics can burn out. To minimize this risk, it’s essential to store your aircraft in a hangar. However, leasing space from an airport can be costly. A better alternative is a fabric structure from Big Top.

Unparalleled Protection for Your Aircraft

The fabric roof of our hangars is designed to block 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. Not only does this keep the interior comfortable for your staff, but it also helps to reduce the amount of maintenance that needs to be performed on your aircraft. Plus, the fabric roof is translucent, allowing plenty of natural light to illuminate the interior without the need for artificial lighting, which can save on energy costs.

Types of Hangars We Can Build

Big Top has provided fabric hangars for private use, as well as for commercial and military organizations. We can build:

  • Sunshades – These basic, open-ended structures provide ample shade from the sun.
  • Commercial storage hangars – These enclosed hangars can be equipped with a manual or hydraulic bay door.
  • Military hangars – The easy portability and assembly of our hangars make them ideal for transporting to military bases around the world.
