Maintenance Hangar & FBO Facility, Biggin Hill, UK
This six slab, three track hangar door is in our 90m clear span hangar.
The door consists of six 15m wide by 9.6m high electrically powered doors, which are operated independently.
This configuration permits 59m to be opened to the left, right or centre at any one time and the clear height of 9.6m will permit the entry of aircraft up to Global Express and BAe 146
The hangar door slabs are clad in Eurobond’s microrib profile composite panels with rockwool cores and the integrated windows are manufactured by REIDglazing in order
to match the portal of our curtain walling which architecturally frame our door. Due to the width of the individual door slabs we have been able to design personnel doors which
have no threshold and can therefore be safely used as escape doors in the event of a fire – something rather unique in hangar doors.
In Addition to the hangar doors, REIDsteel provided the FBO’s main circular automatic entrance door, the frames of which are clad in stainless steel with curved glass sliders. The
two curved stadium doors from the security and customs area of the FBO onto the apron were made by the same supplier.
“Reidsteel & The Civils Contracting partnership has been highly professional and intrinsic to the success of our great turnkey project for Rizon at Biggin Hill. I look forward to working
