Transferred from the United
States Air Force to a group
of volunteers in 1994, Wings
Over the Rockies Air &
Space Museum is located
at the former Lowry Air
Force Base in Denver. The
museum boasts more than
182,000 square feet of hangar space full of iconic aircraft, space
vehicles, artifacts, military uniforms and much more.
Visitors can experience thrilling flight simulators, discover various
educational programs and participate in dozens of exciting museum
sponsored events. Each year, the museum welcomes roughly
160,000 visitors from all 50 U.S. states and 34 countries worldwide.
The existing 20-gauge corrugated metal roof on this large airplane
hangar had reached its useful life and performed well since it was
installed in 1938–that’s a 70-year life-span. The roof was retrofitted
with 92,400 square feet of curved standing seam roofing using the
New Tech Series SSQ IITM MultiPro Roof Panel Machine with 675
tooling. It features ColorGard® by S-5!, the ultimate snow guard
solution for standing seam metal roofs.
