Fabric aircraft hangars offer many benefits
The building of an aircraft hangar can be a lengthy and costly endeavour for any organization. What if there were an easier way? Fabric aircraft hangars by Taurus Fabric Build offer a timely, cost efficient solution to conventional building methods. Once the traditional hangar is built, it is permanent. A fabric hangar may make much more sense, especially if portability in the future is attractive to you.
Since the privatisation of many of our cities major airports, driving plane storage costs to astronomic levels, many GA Pilots have opted to relocate to small country aerodromes. The down side of this is that on many of these smaller aerodromes once you build a permanent structure they become an asset of the aerodrome. If you decide to move on, of the aerodrome changes ownership and cost structures and you decide to leave, you leave your traditional hangar behind. Fabric aircraft hangars are recognised as a temporary structure and in most cases can be moved with you.
Cooler to work in – If you are a commercial operator located in the warmer areas you will find that a fabric structure is measurably cooler than a steel clad building, often as much as 15 degrees. This increases maintenance productivity and can return your aircraft into service in a tighter time frame, impacting positively on your bottom line. Working under fabric is like being under a shady tree, compared to the hot-box conditions of the iron clad building.
Hangars on mine sites – At many fly-in-fly-out mines the aircraft will sit on the tarmac in searing heat between the shift change overs. Often hangars are not provided given the mine may have a life measured in years. The fabric structures reduce the UV and heat damage to the aircraft, reducing maintenance and depreciation expenses. At the end of the life of the mine can be stored until needed, or relocated to another site, maintaining asset value. The fabric structures can extend to walkways and reception shaded areas increasing your quality of service to your client and your passengers.
At Taurus Fabric Build, our staff have been supplying our fabric structures to Australian and worldwide buyers since 2005. We work with some of the best manufacturers in the world to provide our customers with a solution that meets their needs and is cost effective. We offer a variety of smaller structures – widths of 25 metres or less – for aircraft and cargo storage and maintenance and airport facilities. Our larger structures measure up to 40 metres wide can be used for commercial aviation hangars and maintenance facilities.
A Fabric Hangar Is Quick to Install
The construction of a regular aircraft hangar can take considerable time. The installation of a fabric aircraft hangar can be quicker and is completed by our crew, which has been installing structures like these around the world for over ten years. Hundreds of fabric structures have been installed by Taurus Fabric Build, which has allowed our team to gain an in-depth knowledge of installation.
Cost Effective in More Ways than One
Building a customary hangar costs more than installing fabric clad hangars. There is no question about that. While it may cost millions of dollars to put up a brick-and-mortar or steel clad hangar, it costs far less to have Taurus Fabric Build come in and install one of our fabric models. Customers will also notice that they will save money in other ways. Because the structure is made of fabric, light will pass through it, adequately lighting the entire hangar during daylight hours. We can supply very efficient LED lights to ensure the cost effectiveness of the building for 24 hour operation.
For extreme heat or cold conditions we can utilise double skin technology, utilising an external fabric cover with an internal skin that helps insulate the building, ensuring maintenance can be carried out effectively and efficiently, even in the harshest conditions.
Any type of hangar will need maintenance over the years. A fabric aircraft hangar is no different. Because of our experience with these structures, we understand what parts will require some periodic maintenance. Our fabric has a typical lifespan of roughly eight to twelve years for polyethylene or fifteen to thirty years for heavier PVC fabrics. At some point, it will need to be replaced. Our team can also help you determine any other parts that may need replacement or repairs. Because of our experience, we consult to insurance companies should their ever be any damage to a structure due to forces of nature. Our abilities to carry out maintenance and repairs will lead to lower overall maintenance costs. PVC can be welded on site to carry out repairs or change the configuration of the structure.
The biggest advantage of our fabric aircraft hangar is that it can be packed up and relocated. Taurus Fabric Build can help you move the structure too. For more information about our products and how they may best suit your needs, contact us on 0400 030835 or send an email to email@example.com.
