The main feature of helicopter hangars is their extremely swift assembly, combined with outstanding resistance to wind and snow actions, thanks to the use of reinforced extruded aluminium alloy profiles. Metal hangars also offer a large number of technical features that ensure their durability over time and unbeatable performance for helicopter storage and servicing. The HELICOPTER HANGAR consists of an aluminium and steel frame covered with technical PVC fabric or sandwich panels. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads. The key feature of the HELICOPTER HANGAR is the form of both the structure and the door, which allows optimal adaptation to the aircraft to be covered, and the possibility for installation of the same hangar in a variety of configurations.

The HELICOPTER HANGAR structure is of modular design, allowing:
- DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS (open hangar, runway hangar, tunnel hangar, large-door helicopter hangar and service hangar)
- INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
- DESIGN WITH A SPECIFIC SNOW BEARING CAPACITY, ranging from 60 kg/sq. m for the basic structure up to 400 kg/sq. m for areas with very high snowfall
- CE MARKING of the structural components in compliance with the EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 standard thanks to Cover Technology’s accreditation.
It is also important to note that structures are designed and constructed in compliance with the Italian Ministerial Decree dated 14.01.2008 (known as the Technical Construction Standards or NTC2008 with return time Tr 50 years) and in compliance with the Eurocodes.
