Aircraft sheltersCovering your wings
Gaptek aircraft shelters are the quickest and most durable solution that will allow you to cover your aircrafts from external agents
With a long lifespan and the option to be relocated, Gaptek maximizes its functionality. The Gaptek System allows us to build scalable shelters reaching the span that you require, and it can be extended after its construction.
Our aircraft shelters
Gaptek aircraft shelters are made of gantries and purlins, designed under the considerations of the Gaptek System. This allows the structure to be reproduced and, therefore, the building can be extended.

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 shelters?
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 shelters. Only ordinary machinery such as lifting platforms and telescopic cranes.
What is the durability of Gaptek shelters?
The materials used in Gaptek shelters, 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 shelter.
Are Gaptek shelters resistant to extreme weather conditions?
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 Antarctica.
