Airlines are continually looking for ways to increase the size of their aircraft in order to add more seats since more seats equals more revenue.
With the global aircraft hangar market expected to reach a revenue of nearly $7 billion by 2022 and larger planes like the Airbus A380 and Boeing B747-8 being introduced to the industry, outdated and undersized hangars are requiring retrofits.
Passengers also want to board planes with the assurance that the aircraft has been stored in a secure, weathertight facility, without exposure to any harmful elemental forces.
Metl-Span® insulated metal panels (IMPs) provide the ideal insulating materials to equip an airport with efficient and reliable aircraft hangars and can ensure an economical retrofit process when the hangars require an update to accommodate the growing number of larger planes.
