Prefabricated Steel Airplane Hangar in Colorado Springs, Colorado

Metal Building Outlet supplied this pre-engineered steel hangar in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Now functioning as an aircraft hangar, the durable, climate-controlled metal building is part of the infrastructure of JetCenters of Colorado, a Fixed Base Operator that Pro Pilot magazine listed among the nation’s best. The JetCenter caters to military, commercial, business and general aviation clients and is one of three such airport facilities within the state of Colorado.

The hangar has a wide clear span that maximizes space for airplane or helicopter storage. It also has wide doors that can accommodate aircraft with a wide range of wingspans.

Steel Hangar Specifications

Comprised of hardwearing, sustainable steel parts, the metal hangar arrived at the airport in partially assembled pieces, speeding up and simplifying the construction process. When constructed, the steel hangar stands a spacious 160’x120’ in size and features an open, column-free interior and high ceilings.

Attractive and contemporary, the metal hangar blends well with the other buildings onsite at the airport and has a 120’ wide sliding door that leaves plenty of room for moving planes and other aircraft in and out. It also features a liner panel, which helps guard against condensation and protect the hangar’s walls while giving its interior a clean, finished look.

Engineered with the typical climate characteristics of Colorado Springs and the surrounding mountain landscape in mind, the steel building also complies with all local building and engineering codes in place at the airport address.

Economical, Fast-Raising Aircraft Storage Solutions

Ideal for protecting valuable aircraft from extreme temperatures, rain and snow, intense sunlight, pests and other construction hazards, pre-engineered steel hangars are easy to customize in terms of size, ceiling height, door width and insulation, among other areas. Easily fabricated to meet heavy wind or snow loads, these buildings are also simple to configure in terms of style and aesthetics and are available with a wide range of paint, door, window, wainscot and other options.

This particular steel hangar helps protect aircraft stored inside from Colorado’s heavy seasonal snowfall, and it also helps prevent rodents from attempting to burrow into the engines of aircraft.
