Fabric Structures for Lunchrooms & Safety Meeting Facilities on Construction Sites
Big Top’s fabric structures are cost-saving alternatives for lunchrooms and safety meeting facilities on construction sites compared to permanent shelters made from wood or metal. Not only do they cost less to erect, but they can be virtually any size. Their clear-span design eliminates the need for support columns and guy wires, providing plenty of space for your crew to gather for lunch or for a safety meeting. By keeping your workers onsite for their break, you can reduce the risk of downtime since they won’t have to leave the property.
Another benefit of our fabric structures is that they are mobile. As construction progresses, our shelters can be moved to another area of the jobsite. Plus, they can be secured to virtually any foundation, including asphalt, gravel, and concrete. Your crew will be safe and comfortable under one of our fabric structures, thanks to:
- High-performance fabric – Our NFPA-701 flame-retardant fabric blocks 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation and helps to maintain an interior temperature that is 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature.
- Durable engineering – The rip-resistant fabric and industrial-grade, galvanized steel frames of our shelters will stand strong against inclement weather. In fact, our shelters can be equipped with lightning protection and can be deemed muster stations to provide a safe haven from an approaching storm.
- Optional add-ons – We can equip our structures with everything needed for your crew’s comfort, including HVAC systems, flooring, and insulation.
Additionally, the fabric in our structures is translucent and allows in enough natural sunlight to negate the need for electric lighting, which also helps to reduce costs. Plus, because they can be deemed as equipment by the IRS, our shelters may provide you with tax benefits.
