We know that pilots would rather be up in the clouds, but for better or worse, you have to come back down to Earth at some point. When you do, your air hangar needs the proper flooring.
Let’s take a look at which elements you can look for in air hangar flooring.
What Needs Does Your Typical Hangar Have?
Sturdy and Strong
Whether you fly a Boeing 747, a bush plane, or an old P-51 Mustang, it’s important for your floor to hold up and be strong. A nice strong concrete floor with an epoxy coating, will be sure to withstand your craft’s weight, and stand the test of time.
Resistant to Corrosion and Spills
Let’s face it, when you’re working in your hangar, there are going to be a few accidents. You want to make sure your floor is able to withstand whatever spills onto it. Our epoxy and our cementitious urethane flooring options can withstand even some of the most corrosive substances.
Withstanding the Elements
When you leave your hangar door open, natural elements will try to creep in. Our concrete flooring options are resistant to sunlight, rain, and snow, basically whatever mother nature can throw at them.
What Flooring Options are Available?
We’ve already hinted at some options, but let’s outline all of them here:
Concrete with Epoxy
This is a simple yet effective solution. It is extremely strong and durable, highly resistant to stains, and easy to maintain.
This is basically just a form of concrete, reinforced with polyurethane. This makes it durable, extremely resistant to chemicals, and temperature resistant.
Elastomeric Floor Coatings
Elastomeric flooring is a unique and flexible option. It is strong, very resistant to cracks, and resistant to changes in temperature.
