Extension to KLM UK Hangar, Norwich

KLM UK Engineering specialises in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft, and has its main base at Norwich International Airport.

Due to existing and new contracts, as well as the expansion of companies like TNT Airways, KLM were in need of more space. They decided to refurbish a disused hangar, which included a 10m extension of the hangar supplied and erected by REIDsteel.

The hangar door was designed and fitted by Crawford Megadoor. An advantage with the extension and the new Megadoor is that the hangar can house the new version of the 737 which is taller than the old model. The electrically operated Megadoor is split in three door leaves, separated by swing-up columns, which enables a full width of 45 m.

The two outer door leaves are 9 m high; the centre is 13 m, when fully opened. For full flexibility the door leaves can be individually opened. One row with vision panels allows daylight to illuminate the hangar interior.
