Metal Hangars


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

Great Western’s Metal Hangars

provide a nearly limitless range of options, catering to solo aviation enthusiasts who need to store a single aircraft as well as airlines requiring maintenance or storage structures. Our hangars are clear-span designs, meaning there are no interior columns to obstruct mobility, and they support door openings beyond 200 feet in width. With nearly limitless length capabilities, Great Western metal hangars can provide clearance for large or multiple aircraft with ease. Whatever your aviation building needs are, Great Western’s designers will work with you to bring your perfect hangar into reality. Best of all, our metal building kits are designed with ease of construction in mind. So, you can spend less time building and more time in the air.

Great Western can design a hangar to support bi-fold, canvas, stackable, and hydraulic doors. In addition, we have partnerships with numerous hangar door manufacturers and can work in conjunction with them to provide you with a complete package delivered to you ready to erect. Should you prefer to use a hangar door manufacturer not within our network, we can also accommodate that preference. Simply provide the door’s measurements to your Great Western team members and we’ll handle the design from there. Our extensive knowledge of the International Building Code (IBC) ensures that your new building meets or exceeds the latest design standards. Our team’s expertise extends to understanding FAA requirements for building height and other restrictions, ensuring your building’s design complies perfectly.

How Much Do Metal Hangars Cost?

For a free quote on a specific metal hangar building design, reach out to our team with your overall sizing requirements and location to get the ball rolling. We’ll also need to know the height and if there are any airfield restrictions. Our team is happy to contact your airfield’s building authority on your behalf to ensure your design is within spec.

Our team will need to know what door you’d like to go with. For doors ranging from 40 to 100 feet in width, we recommend a bi-fold door from Schweiss, a provider of industry-standard aviation doors that our customers have historically had a great experience with. Under 40 feet, GWB has a host of overhead sectional garage door options that are durable and cost-effective. For doors beyond 100 feet, a stackable sliding door is likely best suited for your needs. Finally, we’ve designed buildings to support hydraulic doors from Higher Power with great results in the past. Not sure which door you need? No problem, our team of experts can help you figure out what fits your needs and budget.

Once our designers have all the necessary information, they’ll provide you with drawings and a detailed quote so you have a feasible number to work with in moving forward with your project.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much wider does my building need to be than the hangar door?

This is dependent on the type and size of your selected door. In most cases, hydraulic and bi-fold doors require three to five feet of space on either side of the door. This allows for proper framing of the structure. Of course, if you’re after more space on either side of the door, we can certainly accommodate.

What door is the best option for my metal hangar building?

In our experience, if your hangar door is in the 40 to 100-foot range a bi-fold door like the ones from Schweiss makes for the simplest and most cost-effective approach. They’re proven and durable, so it is typically our recommendation. A hydraulic door from Higher Power is also a great and affordable option. However, if you’re after a door wider than 100 feet, a stackable sliding door assembly is likely best suited for your needs. For hangar doors under 40 feet, we typically recommend sectional overhead garage doors, depending on location and wind load requirements.

Can Great Western help me find the right hangar door for my building?

Absolutely! Great Western has experience working with various quality door manufacturers that provide a variety of door types. Simply present your Great Western team members with the height, width, and style of your desired door and we’ll present options to satisfy your needs. 

I have height restrictions for my hangar, can Great Western help?

Our team can speak directly to the building authority on your behalf to ensure we’ve got a clear understanding of your particular airfield structure requirements. We’re here to help throughout the entire approval and design process of your hangar.
