Safe Roof Systems

Dec 15, 2023

The Truckee Tahoe Airport District  has 227 metal aircraft hangars located in 14 hangar rows.  Eight hangars were structurally damaged last winter due to excessive snow loads after a record-breaking winter. Tenants in those eight affected hangars have been relocated to other hangars on the airfield until engineering assessments and repairs have been completed.

This past summer, the airport installed Safe Roof Systems sensors in four of our hangar rows, A, D, E and H. The system continuously measures roof deflections and alerts airport staff when and where to safely remove snow and ice burden from the roofs, when the 70% and 90% engineered load tolerances have been reached.
