Clear Span – the unobstructed span of a Great Western steel building hangar is perfect for aviation enthusiasts and airlines alike.

Note that we are able to sell any size door, but the designer shown below only supports up to the size seen in these images.

Great Western can create steel airplane hangars with spans which can accommodate door openings beyond 200’ wide and of limitless length! Every Great Western engineer has the experience and knowledge to design your hangar with bi-fold, hydraulic, stackable and canvas doors. Although most clients choose to order their own hangar door and provide the door specifications to us, Great Western has partnerships with numerous hangar door manufacturers and can include the door purchase with your building as an all-in-one package – it’s just one of the added conveniences we’re ready to provide.

Steel Hangar Building FAQ’s

Yes, we have partnered with several well-known companies manufacturing a variety of doors types. All we need to know are the height and width specifications of the door you need and our team will present you with several options.

If your hanger door is going to be 60’ or smaller, experience tells us that a bi-fold will be the most economical, easiest to design for and are very durable. For doors wider than 60-70’ you may want to consider a stackable sliding door system.
