This 50m clear span hangar was designed for a fleet of two Avro RJ85 and four Saab 340B aircraft. It includes two storey offices, stores and workshops on three sides of the hangar. Outriggers were used because the overall plot size was limited, and with a larger span hangar, the offices would have exceeded the plot boundaries.
There are six bottom rolling slab doors (14.2m high by 8.35m wide) on three tracks. The slabs are clad in microrib and feature thresholdless personnel doors and glazing panels. The centre two door leaves feature small outer doors, behind which is a bespoke inflatable fuselage sealing ring designed for an Avro RJ85. For more information see our Unusual Doors and Special Features section.
REIDsteel were employed by Eznis to deliver a competitively priced Hangar quickly. Eznis had their new fleet of aircraft being delivered before the winter took hold and with no alternative space available to them, the programme was crucial to the project’s success. As usual, Reidsteel did not let them down. We fabricated, designed, and shipped all the steelwork for the hangar and the doors. We also supplied the large Eznis company logo which features on the front and back of the hangar. Supervising all the hangar erection and construction we made sure the job was completed before the winter set in.
