The Best Aircraft Hangar Options

By Lisa Hobbie Created: November, 2020 - Modified: February, 2023

Aircraft hangars are important and essential to aircraft owners. Having a safe and adequate space to store an aircraft is one of the top priorities. Whether an airplane, helicopter or other craft, commercial and private pilots and owners need a space or bay where they can park. Airports and airlines are investing in infrastructure and facilities often located near an airport or maintenance garage, where the craft will be kept when no passengers or pilots are in the plane.

Aircraft hangar floor covering solutions are one of the most important aspects of a quality hangar. The flooring must be durable and chemical resistant, with the ability to withstand heavy loads, impact, abrasion, wear, and chemical spills.

These heavy-duty ground protection mats provide a tough and durable outdoor airport floor covering.

Each of these mats features eight corner connector fixing points with two on each edge, and the low profile composite traction surface with chevron nub design provides maximum grip. This will help the aircraft stay parked in a precise position, and it will help to minimize the likelihood of a slip situation in wet conditions.

With a weight load of 30,772 pounds per square foot and 77.5 square feet of usable surface area per mat, this mat system is strong enough to support many types of aircraft.

The mats are non-conductive and made from a premium, 100 percent high molecular weight polyethylene plastic blend that is black in color.
