Engine workshops

A key infrastructure to your business, a key piece to fly

Specifically devised for maintenance activities, the engine workshop has the capacity to incorporate bridge cranes and other elements

Thanks to the Gaptek technology, the engine workshop building can be escalated until it reaches as much area as you need and cover a wide variety of configurations. Moreover, additional modules can be incorporated in the interior or exterior as supportive buildings such as offices.

Our engine workshops

Designed for a major MRO efficiency, this building is made of a Gaptek Flat structure with scalable gantries and purlins. The workshops are made to withstand high tonnage bridge cranes.

The exterior envelope is made of corrugated steel sheet and the interior envelope is composed of rock wool sandwich panels, which provides a major insulation and comfort.

FAQs

What structural materials are used by Gaptek?
Gaptek has developed a construction system based on prefabricated profiles and dry joints, using aluminum as the structural material for the advantages it has as opposed to traditional construction and its great adaptability.

The advantages of aluminum as structural material as opposed to steel are numerous, such as the optimization and customization of the profiles according to its specific use, as compared with steel’s standard and normalized profiles, the lightness of the profiles and its resistance, the low maintenance thanks to the anticorrosive properties of aluminum and its total recyclability.

What type of machinery is required for the assembly of the workshops?

Thanks to the lightness of aluminum profiles, the structural materials optimization and the simple assembly of our system using dry joints, it is not required to use very heavy machinery or large cranes to assemble our hangars. Only ordinary machinery such as lifting platforms and telescopic cranes.

Can I purchase a fully equipped engine workshop?
Yes. Gaptek offers turnkey solutions, as well as FCA. We can offer from the structure and envelope with a fully equipped building with all the required elements.
Can offices be added to the engine workshop?

Yes. The Gaptek System allows the integration of Gaptek offices inside or attached to other buildings, including the logistic center, being both buildings totally compatible.

What is Gaptek’s workshops fire resistance?

The structures of the engine workshop are protected against fire using inner lining of rock wool sandwich panels. Therefore, the degree of fire resistance will depend on the thickness of the panel and its own fire resistance, adapting the project to the specific regulation and the requirements of the building, without limits.

What is the durability of Gaptek engine workshops?
The materials used in Gaptek workshops, as well as in the rest of Gaptek products, have a great resistance and durability, similar to traditional construction systems. Gaptek offers a 20 year guarantee according to the structure and 5 years to the rest of the elements that compose the building.
I want my engine workshop to be energy efficient. Is it possible?
Yes. In fact, all Gaptek solutions minimize in a passive way the intervention of machines to reach comfort and energy efficiency. In addition, our system is totally compatible with the installation of renewable energies such as solar panels and geothermal.
Are Gaptek engine workshops resistant to extreme weather conditions?
Yes. Gaptek buildings are designed to withstand the conditions of the places inhabited by 85% of the world’s population, but they can also be designed for the most extreme climates of the planet. An example is the Gaptek warehouse that was built in the Antarctica.
