Veldeman Structure Solutions Aircraft Hangars and Rapid Deployment Shelters
Veldeman Structure Solutions is an expert in the design and manufacture of steel and aluminium framed fabric structures. Ideal for cargo facilities, aircraft hangars and terminal buildings, fabric structures are suitable for many uses at the airport, whether they are intended for short or long term applications.
Veldeman's semi-permanent installations are designed for permanent use, but are fully adaptable and evolve with your airport's changing business needs. Unlike other permanent designs, Veldeman's structures can be moved to an alternative location, making the designs ideal for sites unsure about a location's long term viability.
Membrane to frame technology makes this flexibility possible. Both custom and standard structure designs are modular: both able to be relocated or extended.
Manufacturing fabric structures is Veldeman's core business, as well as working in partnership with businesses to provide turnkey service at the customer's request. As a result, structures can be supplied with ventilation, heating, doors, lighting and other services.
By choosing a Veldeman Fabric structure, you will have an uncomplicated and durable hangar solution for your aircraft, catering for wingspans of up to 46m.
Veldeman's aluminium framed Tension Fabric Structure (TFS) is suitable for temporary hangars, enabling on the spot aircraft maintenance facilities. Alternatively, the solution can be fashioned into a permanent hangar structure from a simple sunshade to a fully operational hangar with automated doors, insulation, lighting and HVAC.
The unique shape of the TFS' roof enables the structures to withstand the world's harshest conditions. A super heavy truss structure is not required to support excess snow, as the design sheds snow loads effortlessly.
Transportation of the structure is extremely efficient. When compared to equivalent steel hangar designs, the TFS requires six times less space. Veldeman can work with customer specifications or local regulations to ensure that your hangar meets exact requirements. A steel hangar solution or SFS (steel fabric structure) can also be provided.
Existing airports benefit from Veldeman's structures, enabling the implementation of new hangars whilst addressing the challenges associated with new developments and airport regulations. For instance, restricted radar visibility is sometimes associated with new structures. Veldeman's Tension Fabric Structures present you with additional flexibility in selecting locations, because the structures' membranes are radar transparent. By choosing an SFS or TFS hangar, airports have an alternative to stringent height regulations that apply to structures near to the runway.
A team of dedicate professionals are on hand to custom-engineer your fabric structure solutions, meeting your requirements for ground support equipment storage, temporary terminal structures, cargo handling facilities and hangars.
