Strength and Security in a Bahamas Steel Airplane Hangar
Sunward Steel Buildings designed and manufactured this pre-engineered steel building in the town of Marsh Harbour, Abaco Islands, Bahamas, in early July of 2011.
Now functioning as an airplane hangar, the building features high-end steel construction and an open, clear-span design that makes it easy to move aircraft in and out of the space. Used primarily for airplane and tool storage, the building boasts an eye-catching white exterior and a finished size of 25’x75’x18’9”, while a rugged Galvalume metal roof with a 1:12 pitch guards against corrosion and the elements from above.
Distributed throughout the metal hangar are (11) framed openings varying in terms of size and function. Included are (1) 10’x7’ storefront opening, (2) 3’4”x7’2” doors, (5) 3’x4’ windows and (3) 6’x4’ windows, which together improve hangar accessibility while allowing for natural sunlight inside. The airplane hangar also comes equipped with a high, 150-mph wind speed rating to enhance overall durability and better-protect stored aircraft with regard for the strong winds and hurricane activity that sometimes comes through the area.
