New Project – Sceye SA Aircraft Hangar

May 12th, 2017

Customer: Sceye SA

Building Series: Custom

Application: Airship Hangar, USA

 

The Need

Sceye SA contacted Shelter Structures about designing a mobile hangar solution that would house airships up to 250 feet in length and accommodate both manufacturing and maintenance activities. The 130’ wide by 300’ long tension fabric hangar had to be sustainable, quick to erect, and cost effective while providing over 3,000,000 cubic feet of covered, climate controlled space.

 

The Intention

Final assembly and fitting-up of the airship occurs within the hangar. When the airship is ready to fly, Airship access will be accomplished using a 130’ wide by 60’ long by 90’ high mobile end section that has the ability to traverse over 260 lineal feet on I beam tracks. The pair of parallel I-beams provides a smooth, level rolling surface for the Hilman rollers, while the Accu-Roll Guidance System “U” located on the underside of the I-beam flanges prevent uplift.

 

The Solution
