Helston, Cornwall, UK
This hangar features a REIDsteel cascade door system. It has six leaves, all of them driven through an easily generated cable and gearbox arrangement ensuring that all leaves arrived at the fully open and fully closed position at the same time by travelling at different speeds, all generated by a single handle.
The hangar has outriggers to permit full width entry, and is also an unusual hangar in that the hangar doors were located at the front and the rear, offering access from both ends.
Built to house the Royal Navy’s Merlin search and rescue helicopter this 2000m2 hangar, took only twenty five weeks to design, manufacture and erect in spite of high winds and generally wet conditions.
