At Toro Steel Buildings, we design and engineer aircraft hangars to be able to meet all building codes and industry requirements.

They can be configured in a multitude of ways to accommodate various hangar door placements and varying sizes of aircraft. We also offer a variety of door options so you can choose the most effective type for your needs.
Secure and Reliable Protection
It is critical to protect your aircraft from the various weather conditions and ultraviolet light that can damage them. For this reason, a metal building is an optimal choice. They are durable, reliable, and offer excellent long-lasting performance. Our straight-wall and arch structures can securely house your aircraft or be used as workshops and maintenance facilities. If you require assistance with determining which style best suits you, the size you need, or which accessories to consider, please contact the Toro Steel team to speak to an expert in your region.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. What Are the Most Popular Hangar Sizes & Designs?
Finding the perfect aircraft hangar for your plane can be tricky as they are available in many different shapes and sizes. However, the two most common designs are the arch shape that snuggly fits the plane and the rectangular shape (traditional straight wall) that provides more space allowance. Hobbyists tend to prefer the arch design, while corporate and commercial customers prefer a larger rectangular design. That said, the perfect aircraft hangar depends on your unique needs, including how many planes you need to park. Common aircraft hangar sizes for the corporate, commercial and personal airplane models include:
- Larger if required

Q4. What Other Considerations Are There When Building an Airplane Hangar?
There are many benefits to building a steel aircraft hangar. However, you also need to consider the following:
Aircraft Hangar Ventilation
Although an aircraft hangar has expansive space, it is important to ensure that noxious fumes from all the equipment and machinery are properly dealt with. Installing large industrial fans can help improve air circulation and ventilation.
Aircraft Hangar Lighting
Although there are many lighting options, installing skylights in your aircraft hangar can help you use natural light and lower your electricity bill.
Aircraft Hangar Flooring
When looking into flooring options for your aircraft hangar, look at their chemical resistance, light reflectivity, abrasion resistance, tensile and bond strength, electrostatic dissipation, ease of cleaning and maintenance, moisture and slip resistance and more. This will ensure that the flooring can hold up to your needs and not harm the aircraft.
Aircraft Hangar Doors
Your choice of doors should be large enough to easily accommodate the wingspan of your aircraft, withstand high wind loads, and be reliable in operation. The doors for your hangar will need to be locally sourced by you.
Q5. What Is the Best Type of Hangar Doors?
There are many different types of hangar doors that you can install, including:
Bi-Folding Doors – they are split down the middle horizontally, and when activated, they fold in half. Some can also create a canopy when opened fully, although they need a taller building.
Vertical Lift Doors – these are dual-track standard doors, much like garage doors.
Sliding Doors – these doors follow a track and slide side to side. They are the most affordable option.
The guiding principle in choosing the right door for your aircraft hangar is to maximize accessibility.
Low Maintenance, Expandable Aircraft Hangars
When building an aircraft hangar or aviation facility out of steel, you have the added benefits of high ceilings, unlimited expansion length, low maintenance requirements, and fast construction times. This allows you to get your building completed quickly.
