A hangar is a closed building structure to hold aircraft or spacecraft. Metal hangars are used for protection from the weather, direct sunlight, and maintenance, repair, manufacture, assembly, and storage of aircraft.

Every aircraft owner prefers building a customized airplane hangar to park their plane and protect them from unexpected damages. However, before ordering an ideal airplane hangar, customers have countless queries in their mind. This blog will enrich you with the answers to commonly asked questions associated with metal airplane hangars.

How Expensive is A Metal Airplane Hangar?

Airplane hangar is a bit expensive than metal garages, carports, and other small-sized metal buildings. Steel frame styles, large size, custom configurations, adding insulation can raise its prices. However, metal airplane hangar is not costly compared to conventional building alternatives.

Remember, metal building price varies on multiple factors; some are building style, size, color options, no. of doors/windows, and various other customization options. With every customization, the airplane hangar price gradually increases. However, delivery & installation charges aren’t included in the final price as Viking Metal Garages offer FREE Delivery & Installation with every metal structure you order.

What is The Assembly Time Required?

Your airplane hangar is delivered in prefabricated components. Hence the entire pre-engineered steel hangar will take less time compared to other building alternatives. Moreover, the fastener holes are pre-punched that save time. All it requires is assembling your metal airplane hangar and bolt them together. Even if needed, the components are pre-welded to save your installation time.

Can I Get A Certified Airplane Hangar?

Airplane hangar is a significant investment to protect your airplane from hazardous weather troubles, including high winds, snowfall, seismic waves, floods, etc. Hence, if you live in extremely unpleasant weather conditions, you must always order a certified airplane hangar that guarantees your structure’s complete protection. With a certified metal hangar, you receive authentic certification against high winds and snow load. Certified airplane hangars are specially designed to resist winds up to 170 MPH.

Will My Airplane Hangar Collapse by Heavy Snow Load?

Metal buildings are sustainable to heavy snow load, high winds, and even seismic waves. So, your prefabricated airplane hangar won’t collapse by heavy snow load. Metal buildings are made to confront up to 100Lb PSF Ground snow load, depending upon your area and weather conditions.

Will Airplane Hangar Make Noise During Downspours or Hailstorm?

No, well-insulated hangar won’t allow external sound to enter your building, protecting it from outdoor noise. Mostly roof panels are installed with fiberglass insulation or foam rigid board underlayment that resist the sound and keeps your metal structure quieter inside. It will also save on energy costs.

What If Airplane Hangar Gets Rust?

The steel used in manufacturing your custom airplane hangar is 100% galvanized, ensuring your building doesn’t rust until its existence. All metal buildings are factory coated with Zinc that protects them against rust and corrosion. Furthermore, all the components are pre-punched and pre-cut; you don’t need to worry about the rusting issue.

How Long Will An Airplane Hangar Survive?

Metal Airplane hangar has an average life of 30-40 years if maintained properly. However, with a vertical roof, you can stay assured of minimal maintenance costs. The vertical roof allows easy runoff of snow and water that ensures no still water problem or heavy snow load issue occurs on your airplane hangar.
