Customizing Your Aircraft Hangar with Our Team

Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you’ll be using your aircraft hangar, how it fits within your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the building to ensure that your airplane hangar is designed with the wind and snow loads of your area in mind as well as any insulation requirements.

Once we get an idea of what building kit best suits your project, we work with you to add customization options, including a wide variety of doors, windows, and exterior color schemes. The ease of steel construction allows us to modify layouts and add further customizations without breaking your budget. From design to construction, we provide the materials and expertise to transform a building kit into an aircraft hangar.

Strength and Durability

While steel is best known for its strength, there are a few other factors that make steel a superior building material. One advantage of steel construction is design flexibility. This is especially important for airplane hangars because of the volume of federal, state, and local regulations that must be considered before construction begins on your hangar. General Steel offers a variety of configurations to accommodate these requirements in addition to a variety of components, including door sizes and types that fit your airplane’s needs.

Steel is the world’s premier building material because of its strength and durability. General Steel uses the highest-quality steel to provide straight walls, tight connections, and a final product that will stand the test of time.
