Top 5 Reasons to Choose a Fabric Aviation Hangar

The combination of light, bright interiors and engineered steel frames often make tension fabric buildings the preferred solution for aircraft hangars. There are also several additional features of fabric structures that are perfect for the aviation industry.

  • Fabric hangars can be constructed quickly. 
  • Fabric hangars can be relocated.
  • Fabric buildings require minimal maintenance.
  • Your fabric hangar can be built on a simple foundation.
  • Every fabric building is customized to meet your needs.

Fabric hangars can be constructed quickly. Once onsite, a fabric hangar can be constructed one and a half to two times faster than a steel hangar. You’ll be using and profiting from your hangar sooner.

Fabric hangars can be relocated. Airports and airline operations change quickly – which sometimes means moving. Fabric buildings are constructed as permanent structures, but they can be relocated. Lightweight architectural fabric panels can be reused and shipped at a lower cost than conventional systems. 

Fabric buildings require minimum maintenance. Once our professional crews install your building, only minimal maintenance is required from you. No painting, no replacing shingles, no loose siding. You can concentrate on maintaining your aircraft, not your hangar. 

Your fabric hangar can be built on a simple foundation. Fabric buildings can use a variety of foundations. If an existing concrete slab is available, we can anchor the building to that. A hangar in a new location can be built on a small pier foundation. The ability to use multiple foundation types also makes the building more easily relocated. 

Every fabric hangar is customized to meet your needs. Tension fabric hangars can be built to exact length, width and height clearances as required by your aircraft. Legacy has constructed clear span hangars up to 270 feet wide, and exceeding 50,000 square feet in plan area. Our engineered steel frames can support a variety of hangar doors, and ancillary equipment such as fire suppression systems, heating systems, and lighting equipment.  

Whatever our needs, a fabric hangar can be built for you. Whether you’re housing a small plane or something as large as an A380, we can build the hangar of your dreams.
