B737 IglooMX® Nose Shelter

J.B. Roche - HYDRO partner product


When your aircraft has been damaged by a bird-strike, lightning-strike or a collision on the apron, it can take a considerable amount of time to source an available hangar to undertake the necessary repairs. The patent protected IglooMX® Inflatable Nose Shelter system provides the ideal solution for such events.

This “hangar-in-a-bag” system reduces downtime to a minimum and saves time and money on hangar space rental and towing charges. The Nose Shelter may be used for multiple purposes including windshield replacement, radome composite repairs and nose landing gear maintenance or replacement.

The IglooMX® is small enough to ship as part of the fly-away kit. It is inflated and “docked” around the front of the aircraft by following the simple installation instructions provided. Inflation takes less than 5 minutes with a crew of 3-4 people.

The Nose Shelter has plenty of space internally for scaffolding, scissors-lift or boom-lift and is supplied complete with heating and filtration ducts.

Once in place, the shelter system will boost your maintenance team’s productivity by providing a warm and safe environment in which to work.

These shelters feature specially designed fabrics that are both lightweight and tough, providing excellent abrasion and tear resistance. The unique materials are also fire retardant and resistant to hydraulic fluid and fuels, ensuring that they remain functional for many years.

The IglooMX® is supplied in a storage bag on wheels, making it easy to move around on the apron. In the unlikely event that the shelter becomes damaged while in use, an on-site repair kit is supplied as part of the package.

The IglooMX® kit can be deflated and stored away in approximately 20 minutes.
