Inflatable Hangars & Shelters - details


  • Objective: these air cell structures are indicated when:
    • Its use is temporary;
    • The logistics of positioning traditional structures is costly and complex;
    • The impact on the ground (e.g. airport or forest) have to be null;
    • The number of people available for installation is limited.
  • Characteristics: these shelters:
    • Can be stored in fabric bags, and easily carried  in helicopters, boats or small cargo vehicles;
    • Few persons are sufficient for assembly;
    • Assembly time (unloading, opening, preparation, and inflation) is very quick - e.g. for a 20m x 20m hangar, it takes around 2 hours only;
    • They are autonomous structures, and only require fuel for the pneumatic compressor. This fuel can be the helicopter kerosene. Electrical power for air pumps can be used if available;
    • It is not required any special preparation of the base soil, and the hangar can be fixed with spikes or       stabilized with ballast (stones, water, etc.);
    • Due to their simplicity of installation, they do not cause any harm to the base floor, as they do not require foundations, therefore the approvals for installation on airports are simpler and faster than for traditional types of hangar;
    • In the case of use in the jungle, after the removal, the physical and environmental impact left is null;
    • Good wind resistance: a 20m x 20m hangar withstands up to 50 knots. Used fabrics are extremely resistant and comply with the European standards of construction and flammability: M2 (NFP 92-507), BS 7837 and Euroclass B Rating 13501-1 EN-s2-d0;
    • The structure durability is a function of its use, but in non extreme environments (deserts or poles), it is more than ten years, usually twenty;
    • After use, simply deflate, remove all the air, wash and dry. Storage is simple, good for long periods, if kept in a dry and dark room. Otherwise, the framework       does not require other care or maintenance.

  • Conclusion: these air cell structures are ideal when the following requirements are paramount:
    • Portability
    • Environment preservation
    • Simplicity & Autonomy
    • Design Flexibility to meet the specific needs of your operation
