Helicopter hangar

helicopter hangar - Covertechnology.com

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.

CONFIGURATION
Width Minimum 10.00 metres / Maximum 40.00 metres
Length Standard modules 05.00 metres / total length infinite
Side height Minimum 02.50 metres / Maximum 09.00 metres
Wind resistance Minimum 25 m/sec / Maximum 41 m/sec
Snow resistance Minimum 60 daN/m² / Maximum 400 daN/m²
Cover fire resistance class Self-extinguishing – Flame Retardant Class 2
Operating temperature -30 °C  /  +70 °C

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.

The supporting frame consists of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, creating a lightweight structure that withstands all weather conditions. Roofs and side walls are in flame-retardant, waterproof, very tough, PVC fabric. Naturally, there is a very wide selection of materials to suit the different uses and locations of structures. The main materials used in construction of the HELICOPTER HANGAR are:

MATERIALS
Main structure components Aluminium alloy profiles
Base plate elements Hot-dip galvanised steel
Cover Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Side walls, if required Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Doors or openings, if required Large vertical folding doors for aircraft / Vertical folding doors for vehicles / personnel doors
Metal cables Plastic-coated steel cable
Supporting surface Plinth not required
Anchor systems for concrete surfaces Threaded bars fixed with structural vinyl/epoxy resins
Anchor systems for firm ground and asphalt surfaces Steel nails driven into the ground
Anchor systems for loose ground Continuous spiral coils or rods

Apart from the STANDARD PVC sheeting, the cover may be in:

  • PVC fabrics with blackout treatment for sun protection
  • Thick PVC fabrics (strong cover)
  • Low-emission (silver-coated) or insulated PVC fabrics
  • PVC fabrics with special coating

Cover Technology over the years has realized several installations, please find below some related examples.
