Paint Hangars


REIDsteel would normally advise that a hangar should be as wide as possible, and as high as possible, and that the hangar doors should be full height and full width. Unless the hangar is specifically designed for one aircraft type, and that type will never be extended, it is almost always better to increase flexibility and future value by thinking BIG.

But paint hangars have the need to heat, or air condition the internal volume, and to scrub the air in the hangar to remove solvents. In this case there is a need to minimise the volume. This can be done by

  • providing an insulated ceiling over the entire area, at as low a height as practicable

  • partitioning off the triangles in front of the wings

  • providing a small nose hangar

  • providing an insulated tail box near the front door for the aircraft rudder.

Paint Hangar designed for B767,A300, A310, VC10The doors in this case should be of minimum size. Our accord with Megadoor can be of use here, and a typical hangar could have doors tailored for the minimum area. Here is the perfect example of a paint hangar designed for B767, A300, A310, and the tricky VC10.

This type of hangar is a Glove Hangar (Type 4)
