Birtley Galvanizing were approached by metal fabricator Rubb to fulfil a project for Easyjet.


Based at Gatwick airport, Easyjet required the build of a new service hangar to allow aircraft to undergo maintenance in a controlled environment while at the airport.


Birtley Galvanizing took the fabricated frame of the building and put it through the galvanizing process. This is the first hangar of this type and Rubb expect Easyjet to see an increased benefit in service schedules and for more hangars of this type to be built and deployed in airports around the UK.


The hot-dip galvanized steel frame is clad with 150mm thick Thermohall insulated fabric and the structure is located at Gatwick Airport, near London, UK.
