Flightstar Hangar Building with TrussFrame
Massive Hangar with 313' Clear Span
Designed using the latest in BIM 3D technology, and featuring the Nucor TrussFrame open web rafter system, Flightstar Hangar boasts an astounding 313' clear span. This custom designed hangar is comprised of two main areas: a low-bay which is 69’-0” in height and houses the planes, and an 80’-0” tall high-bay that houses the Megadoor and support framing. The gutter and downspouts along the front sidewall are hidden by the open fascia system that is nearly 15’0” in height. It also features Nucor Wall Lites which allow for natural lighting to be dispersed throughout the building’s interior as well as energy conservation.
With the rafters being 12’ deep, NBS designed special X-bracing at the top and bottom of the rafters to ensure sufficient support. In a maintenance environment, a Megadoor provides the best solution because it is contained within the building frame, creating a tighter seal and restricting airflow when the building is closed.
