In early 2007, was established production company “ANGARSTROY”, which became a subsidiary company PKF “Studio K”. The main objective of the enterprise was the organization of serial production pnevmoangarov. To date, both companies have extensive experience in manufacturing inflatable hangars type and sverhmobilnyh tent structures. FSC “Studio K” and PF “ANGARSTROY” cooperate with the largest world-renowned companies, such as “GAZPROM”, “ROSNEFT”, “SCHLUMBERGER”, “HALLIBURTON”, “COCA-COLA”, “PERI”, “MAMMOET”, “CATERPILLAR”, “KODAK”, “EURO PART”, “YAMAHA” and others.
The history of creation of Studio K firm leaves the roots in the remote past … Being one of the first co-operative societies in Nizhni Novgorod (founded in 1987), the firm was engaged in advertising activity, creation of television preview trailers. The Studio K successfully worked in advertising video shooting sphere. At 5th Moscow international festival of advertising in 1995 Studio K was included into top ten of Russian advertisers.
In 1994 employees of Studio K been founded Nizhniy Novgorod aeronautic group “Pipilatz”. This command was engaged in flights on thermal balloons, participated in any possible city holidays and actions, as well as international aeronautic championships and fiestas in Russia and Europe. Thus, Studio K and Nizhniy Novgorod aeronautic group Pipilatz united in advertising sphere.
Year 1999 became a turning point in company’s destiny. The company stopped working in advertising video industry. The decision to change activity of Studio K at the given stage was caused by hard competition between advertising companies.
In 2000 Studio K declares itself as a product company. A new direction of activity is design and manufacture of mobile awning and advertising constructions.
The model “Star 6” which has well proved itself as the original mobile awning design intended for outdoor actions became one of the first created products. “Figaro”, a network of restaurants of outdoor service, was one of major customers, who chose “Star 6” awning for its business.
Further the company improved this model, adding quick-detachable transparent walls, simultaneously having improved the quality of cut.
Soon we constructed light variant of “Star 6”, which was perfect for use at country personal sites. Besides, the company was engaged in covering of pools, platforms, verandahs, arbors under individual projects.
Since 2003 the Studio K has been annually carrying out orders of navigable company «Volzhkoe parohodstvo». The awnings developed by our firm still decorate steam-ships, protecting passengers from rain and wind.
In the end of 2003 by request of administration of Vladivostok the Studio K developed a new model – the «Star 8С» with usable area of 80 sq. m. Here 4 years our awning designs are established on the main area of a city for New Year’s holidays.
In 2004 eight-beam star with walls was enhanced by metal frame. This is the model «Star 8 SM». The first order for such design has been received from the central city park of of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.
This star is maintained as pavilion of slot machines the whole year. The design is completed with transparent walls and entrances (doors).
In 2001 Studio K started working with pneumatic. Working models were constructed, as well as tests of the first models of pneumohangars were conducted.
Tests of pre-production models demonstrated great advantages of pneumoframe designs in comparison with others in respect of mobility.
Pneumoframe hangars have well proved to be all-weather mobile buildings, which do not require the base, and anchor fastenings to the ground. They are compact in transportation and easy in installation.
At the same time we developed the awning design “House”, which is a mixture of pneumoframe and membrane-awning constructions. This design, covering 80 sq. m, was ordered by a Russian firm “NAIDI” for all-the-year-round operation as a Kodak photo center in Izhevsk (2003). Walls are inflatable; the ceiling is double, suspended on the central rack support.
This design concedes to hangars in mobility; however, it has the non-standard appearance reminding architecture of Old Russian style. The autowashing complex in Khimki (115 sq. m.) at the area of shopping centre “Liga” (2004) became a modification of “House” in new role.
By request of Coca-Cola company in 2005, we created a pneumohangar in the shape of a lying tin, with useful area of 300 sq. m.
The design works as restaurant at the territory of mountain-skiing park “Yakhroma”, situated near Moscow.
The same year we manufactured the hangar for children’s complex of inflatable attractions, with the covered area 350 sq. m., which was established in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Since then, children got a possibility to visit park rides in winter, too.
According to information from the customer in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, this hangar has successfully survived 5 hurricanes with speeds of wind ranging from 27 to 38,8m/s for 2,5 years of operation (since the beginning of 2005). When one of such cataclysms occurred, some large trees were broken, and an electric lighting column was tumbled down in the area, where the design was located, as well as window glasses of a shopping centre were squeezed out from the direction of wind pressure.
In 2006, by request of the Nizhniy Novgorod division of Gazprom, Volgotransgaz LLC, we manufactured a pneumohangar with useful area of 350 sq. m., with an experimental tightening covering. This additional cover considerably raised wind and snow stability, as well as heat-saving design characteristics, simultaneously having improved installation time.
Pneumohangar installation was conducted by a brigade of 6 workers at the temperature -35 degrees of Celsius, in 12 hours time. A garage and an automobile repair site for the heavy technical equipment were organized there for the winter period.
Since this moment the external cover became an obligatory element of a complete set of all our pneumohangars.
For the German firm “PERI”, the largest world manufacturer of building woods and a timbering, in 2006 we developed a pneumohangar with useful area of 200 sq.m. In the beginning of October at an open building site near Noginsk, Moscow region, our pneumohangar became the first warm premise for repair of technical equipment and storage of building materials. Exploitation of the mobile pneumohangar has allowed the company to reduce terms factory building considerably. In the spring of 2008 this pneumohangar will move to Saint Petersburg, for the solution of similar problems in building of similar factory.
In Summer 2006, «PAL ZILERI» shop was opened in N. Novgorod. The basic part of action took place in a pneumohangar. Display of models of «PAL ZILERI» clothes has taken place. It is necessary to notice, that absence anchor fastenings, and the more so, base, has allowed to establish a pneumohangar with useful area of 150 sq.m. on stone blocks in the city centre for 1.5 hours by 6 workers.
For “Mantrak Vostok” LLC (the official dealer of Caterpillar company in Uralsky and Privolzhsky regions of the Russian Federation) we made a pneumohangar as a service centre on assemblage and repair of heavy technical equipment of «Caterpillar» on Yamal for the winter period since December, 2007.
Installation of a pneumohangar for «GK Service» (organisation of railway cargo transportations in containers and cars) in Sergiev Posad, Moscow region, was conducted in October, 2007. The pneumodesign is intended for all-the-year-round operation as a mobile warehouse for expensive cargoes. Arrangement of gate on lateral walls of a hangar was the original solution of this design.
For the Perm division of the Ministry of Emergency Measures, in 2007 we designed a high-pressure pneumo construction “Crab” with useful area of 20 sq.m. It has a double ceiling and double walls, exhaust ventilation system, and warmed door. The design is also equipped with a sleeve for connection of thermal gun, two windows and the tight floor excluding moisture inside the premise. If necessary, the design can be landed from a helicopter or a plane. The installation takes 4 minutes. “Crab” is intended for rescue operations both in southern and in northern climatic zones.
In the north of island of Sakhalin in July, 2008, the pneumohangar made by us for MAMMOET company has been established. The design with useful area 250 sq. m. exactly repeats the project created for Mantrak-Vostok (CAT). The design is used for service and repair of elevating mechanisms and the specialized technics.
By request of NOVATEK- PUROVSKY firm in the shortest terms we made a pneumohangar to be used as a mobile dining room. The pneumodesign is planned for 500 sitting places. The mobile dining room was installed on a site of a gas-processing combine being constructed in Novy Urengoy city. The pneumohangar has been working since May, 2008.
On August, 12th, 2008 in Perm, a mobile pneumohangar with covered area 1110 sq. m. has been established. The design was used as an all-the-year-round mobile dolphinarium. Inside the pneumohangar there is a pool in diameter of 16 m., as well as mobile tribunes for 570 spectators. The dolphinarium started working in September, 2008. The owners of the pneumohangar tour and give concerts in different cities of Russia.
By order of Bamtonnelstroy company, a unique nine-modular pneumohangar has been developed. The length of the hangar makes more than 100 m! The design with useful area of1500 sq. m is used as temporary shelter at a lining of tunnels. The pneumohangar was established in November, 2009 at a lining of the Kuznetsovsky tunnel in Khabarovsk region.
The Angarstroy firm has developed a series of pneumohangars the covered area of 1110 sq. m. By the beginning of 2010, five of such have been made already! The next brand new dolphinarium has been erected in the centre of Chelyabinsk city. The shows have started in the middle of December, 2009.
In March 2010, by order of “Novoangarsky processing enterprise” we have manufactured a series of inflatable hangars for storage and maintenance of large vehicles – BelAZ. Three pneumohangars with the total area of 1500 sq. m have large pneumatic gates with size of 6 x 6 m. In addition, the hangars are equipped with a removal system of exhaust gases, lighting, heating and forced ventilation.

For work in Krasnoyarsk region at Vankorskoye field in June 2010 for a foreign company “Schlumberger Logelco Inc.” we’ve made three hangars of 143 sq. m each.были изготовлены 3 ангара по 143 кв.м. Inflatable manufacturing modules are used to prepare a special mixture for the production of drilling fluids. Pneumohangars are equipped with heating, lighting and ventilation systems to maintain the required environment and safe work of the staff.
Inflatable repair boxes (2 hangars of 304 sq. m each) for the company “MehTrans” were installed in December 2010 near the town of Blagoveshchensk, Amur region. Inflatable hangars, provided with heating and ventilation systems, can maintain fitness of equipment and machinery in the harsh climate of Russia.
Due to large increase of orders in 2011, we’ve opened our new manufacturing site. It allowed increasing the speed of serial production manufacturing by 65%.
Inflatable pavilion for spectators with useful area of 712 sq. m. was made for the center of winter sports in Khanty-Mansiysk named A.V. Filipenko in January 2011. Design of inflatable construction – “shell” was conducted in conjunction with architects of Khanty-Mansiysk. During the Biathlon World Cup in inflatable cafe-restaurant were simultaneously housed more than 600 visitors. Inside it was installed a projector to let the resting be aware of the events unfolding on tracks and stadium. Inflatable pavilion is located behind the north stand, not far from the conference hall.
