AEROCOP’S

Aircraft hangar

It all began when two friends with a passion for aviation decided to set up a company, AEROCOP’S, and have their own aircraft hangar at the La Baule-Escoublac airfield to protect their microlights. They entrusted their project to Frisomat France, a company specialising in the construction of metal buildings, renowned for its speed of execution as well as the robustness and durability of its hangars.

Construction of a hangar for personal use for ULMs

It all began when two friends with a passion for aviation decided to set up a company, AEROCOP’S, and have their own aircraft hangar at the La Baule-Escoublac airfield to protect their microlights. They entrusted their project to Frisomat France, a company specialising in the construction of metal buildings, renowned for its speed of execution as well as the robustness and durability of its hangars.

This new aircraft hangar is private, as the metal building will be used for personal use only. The structure is fairly simple, with no electricity or water supply. Above all, the two friends were looking for a place that was dry, secure and large enough for them to get their microlights in and out easily.

A tailor-made hangar

Frisomat offers high-quality professional services, and every project goes through certain stages. The project manager meets with customers to understand their needs and provide the best possible solution. In this case, the most important element was the door opening and the height because of the shape of the ULMs. Frisomat supports its customers from start to finish, and this includes providing plans to help obtain planning permission, supervising the lowering of loads and foundations, and erecting the metal hangar in 2-3 weeks. In addition, Frisomat always seeks to adapt to its customers’ requirements. In this case, Frisomat was able to create an innovative new door model adapted to the project, with a 16-metre door on a 19-metre façade, while respecting the budget of this small company.

A hangar that stands up to the wind and the waves

This aircraft hangar is close to the ocean and in an open area. It is therefore essential to take into account the strength of the wind and the humidity of the region. Frisomat uses the latest technology. The company chose the best materials to make this metal shed robust, rustproof and durable: extremely resistant galvanised steel, anti-condensation felt and bracing, not forgetting the installation of a smoke extractor and a panic door to comply with standards.

Frisomat understands and adapts to the needs of its customers, to their complete satisfaction.
