No wonder metal buildings have become synonymous with aircraft hangars and storage buildings. Many metal building hangars have been in use for decades, some more than 50-years. Metal building systems offer great advantages to aircraft owners and airport operators because they can be configured to accommodate many types of hangar doors and offer wide, column-free, flexible spaces. Metal building frames are custom engineered and have the strength to span 200+ feet and reach to a height of over 90 feet to accommodate today's large aircraft as well as the sprinkler systems and fire protection systems needed to safely store such valuable property.

Modern metal building system designs have increased the roof span so that today's large commercial aircraft, even as large as the Boeing 777, can be stored or brought indoors for maintenance operations.

As any aircraft owner knows, the initial cost of a plane or helicopter is just part of the true cost of ownership. Maintenance, fuel, pilots - those continuing costs make an aircraft a sizeable investment for any owner.

To protect that investment, you want an aircraft hangar that meets your needs. And, if you build that hangar, you want the most efficient design and construction - without wasting a dollar or a day.

So whether you have a taildragger or a fleet of wide-bodies, Butler Manufacturing™ can provide a hangar facility that meets your needs.

Maximum Design Flexibility

The appearance of your new hangar is a critical factor. You just tell us what you’d like and we can build it!

Our structural systems are designed to give you complete freedom in planning the size and shape of your building. And exteriors of concrete, wood, brick, stone or glass are just as familiar to us as our attractive and economical metal wall systems.

Your hangar will have no interior columns to allow for just about any wingspan. Nothing to keep you from using the valuable space exactly like you want to use it. If you plan on needing more space in the future, Butler hangars can be designed to accept future expansion with a minimum of cost and disruption.

Hangar Doors

Due to the complexity of movement on such a large scale, hangar doors hold the greatest risk for potential problems. Butler is there to help you avoid these problems. We’ll help you select the hangar door that’s right for you and coordinate the design of the door opening and installation requirements.
