Aeroplanes and helicopters are expensive. Having the right facilities to protect, store and maintain them is key.

Luckily, there’s a simple solution:

Whether you’re private or commercial, Collinson aircraft buildings are ideal for aircraft storage, cargo loading or plane and helicopter maintenance and repair.

Here’s why:

Cost-Effective Aircraft Hangar

By design Collinson tensile aircraft hangars are less expensive than conventional alternatives. They also:
  • Use fewer materials
  • Require less groundworks
  • Are quick to build and simple to expand
  • Need far less maintenance throughout their lifecycle
Collinson tensile structures have many other advantages, too.

Spacious For Aircraft

Unlike conventional portal frame buildings, Collinson tensile aircraft hangars can be column-free up to 100 metres.
So, your valuable indoor space won’t be interrupted by internal pillars or supports.
We’ll work with you to make sure you get the most out of your available space. Ceiling height, building shape and building span can all be customised to suit you.

Reliable Protection

UV, salt spray and heat exposure can all damage aircraft over time, landing you with hefty respray and refurbishment bills. 
Our specialist roof fabric has a 240um protective layer, giving triple the UV and pollution protection of a standard membrane (usually 80um).
Collinson hangars are weatherproof and have withstood recorded windspeeds of 130mph, ideal for indoor MRO in poor conditions.

Flexible Design

Because our design team are in-house, your building can be fully customised whilst complying with aircraft hangar design standards:
  • Doors of all types and sizes
  • Bespoke building shapes and profiles
  • Coloured membrane, cladding and logos
  • HVAC and thermal insulation

Shorter Construction Time

Many of the components of our structures are prefabricated in a controlled factory environment.
As well as ensuring high quality and consistency, it also means our team can assemble your aircraft building quickly and efficiently—because they’re experienced, and because we’ve engineered our process to disrupt your aviation site as little as possible.
