Benefits of a Moisture Barrier for a Concrete Floor in an Aircraft Hangar
Maintaining a small personal aircraft hangar is a huge responsibility and can be tedious. When considering hangar requirements, adding a moisture barrier for a concrete floor is a top priority. Hangar floors require a product that possesses strength and durability in order to stand up to its rigorous use.
According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) the number of passengers in 2016 was 3.8 billion compared to 2.28 billion in 2009. This increase forced airlines to provide additional space for more planes and airports. Although building a hangar is not a complicated matter when using modern technology, choosing the right flooring solution can be tricky.
Top of the line epoxy floor coatings are engineered to hold up against harsh aviation fuels, waxes, lubricants, cleaners, corrosive liquids and chemicals found in airplane hangars. Despite long term exposure to such fluids, an epoxy coating that is suitable for commercial use will be able to maintain its integrity. Cleanup will be a breeze. It will not fade, stain, or begin to break down. Another important thing to note in this type of flooring is that it has high resistance against scratches, scrapes, and abrasions.
Some other factors to take into consideration for your hangar floors are light reflectivity, bond and tensile strength, electrostatic dissipation, slip resistance, color selection, and decorative elements. Having floors like this promotes operational efficiency and safety in the hangar. Flooring experts from a trusted company such as Floorguard can handle that for you.
With an epoxy finish, your hangar flooring will remain intact and look stunning for years to come. Call Floorguard at (855) 988-4713 for more information about our superior technology and materials.

Really Pleased! Our garage needed some major help – not only was it a mess but the floor was just ugly with all the stains and such. I will agree with the reviewer below – do not go with the cheap imitators! Floorguard not only has a great product, but their installers and service is well worth any extra cost, which is minimal anyway. Our neighbors have commented on how good our garage looks and we’ve recommended them to Floorguard without hesitation.
The garage looks so good! A+ company on every level. Wish I had another garage to resurface!
My neighbor had a floor done by another company that was new to the industry, boy were they sorry. I went with the experts, Floorguard did an incredible job!!

Covering our old, gray garage floor was a great aesthetic and functional improvement. This project requires 2 days: first day preparing the surface (major job requiring right equipment), putting down first coating and sprinkling the flakes. This requires about 4 hours. After this dries, they come back next day and apply the topcoat. They notified us when they would start the work and arrived as promised. They worked diligently, completed the work efficiently, left the work areas and our driveway clean. The owner Steve is a great guy to deal with.

It was a pleasure dealing with the company’s owner Steve Chaloult. When we called him to give us an estimate, he arranged to come within a few days. We have a very large two car garage. His estimate was a bit more than the first company we called but he seemed very well prepared in showing us samples and very knowledgeable about his product and we just liked him. For personal reasons , we had to delay installation for about a month and he could not be more accommodating. we finally we able to have it done this past week and it was worth the wait. The garage floor is just beautiful and I never would have thought I would say that about a garage floor! We also had the lower walls around the floor done and very glad we did. At one time we were thinking we could do this ourselves using a kit. WHAT were we thinking? This is a job for a professional and we are so glad we used Steve.

The owner Steve Chaloult was easy to work with and he’s very good at what he does. I highly recommend Floorguard as your contractor if you’re wanting to have a garage floor finished with a durable epoxy like colored finish. Floorguard came when they said they would and cleaned up after they were finished. Floorguard also installs garage storage cabinets.
