Steel Airplane Hangars in Florida
Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was the manufacturer and supplier of this pair of pre-engineered metal buildings in Pensacola, Florida, in April of 2006.
These days, the (2) buildings function as steel T-Hangars for aircraft storage on the grounds of Ferguson Airport, a privately-owned public use airport and popular stop among aviation enthusiasts looking for fuel, maintenance services, aircraft rentals, flight training and more. These particular metal hangars became a part of the Ferguson Airport property after Hurricane Ivan ravaged the airport’s original hangars in 2004 and have provided a safe, secure space to house aircraft ever since.
More About the Metal T Hangars
Designed to house and protect valuable aircraft when not in flight, these (2) identical prefabricated metal T hangars stand 35’x376’x15’ in size. Attractive and Royal Blue in color, the hangars offer unobstructed clear-span designs that can accommodate aircraft in a wide range of sizes, and overhead, they feature long-lasting, corrosion-resistant Galvalume roofs with 1:12 pitches.
Engineered to offer the strength Pensacola’s sometimes-extreme weather patterns demand, the steel T hangars deliver unparalleled durability. They also feature 140-mph wind speed ratings; inclusions made in adherence to local building code requirements and in consideration of the occasional hurricane activity that comes through the region.
