Steel Aircraft Hangars

No other building material works better for aircraft hangars than steel; no other metal building offers the advantages of RHINO steel aircraft hangars.

Only steel framing is able to span such long distances without interior load-bearing supports. RHINO standard metal hangars can clearspan up to 150’ wide; 200’ or even wider spans are possible with a custom quote. Standard building heights are 40’ but even taller buildings are available with a custom quote. The strength of steel also provides added protection from high winds, fire, heavy snows, lightning, termites, earthquakes, and aging. RHINO’s commercial-grade steel framing is so strong and durable, it is guaranteed to meet or exceed all local building codes for the lifetime of the structure.

RHINO can design hangars to include mezzanines or overhead cranes. Hangar doors of 45’ or 60’ wide in bifold or overhead doors with electric or hydraulic lifts are available. Sliding aircraft doors are also an option. We have buildings and openings to fit any size aircraft from a small single prop to jumbo jet. Hangar doors can also be insulated, if required, and are certified wind rated for your location.

Cool-coated panels, which reflect 40% – 50% of the sun’s heat away from the building, are also an option for our aircraft hangar designs. (For more options and accessories, see our Metal Building Options page.)

We can provide any specialized metal aircraft support buildings needed to accompany your hangar, including corporate offices, multi-purpose facilities, maintenance buildings, shade structures, private jet terminals, and more.

All the framing components are prefabricated at the factory for simple assembly at the job site, using high-strength bolts and self-drilling screws. Multiple shipping points across the U.S. save on shipping charges and allow delivery of your aircraft buildings in as little as six to seven weeks from order. (Some standard models can deliver in as little as four weeks.)

RHINO prefab aircraft hangar designs are striking, resilient, and will preserve their beauty and value for decades with virtually no maintenance. Since steel is the most recycled material in the world, building a RHINO steel hangar is also the “green” way to build.
