Warehousing Fabric Structures for the Construction Industry
Fabric structures from Big Top have many uses on construction sites, with the primary one being for warehousing. Our structures are perfect for safely storing equipment and materials that are sensitive to the elements. That’s because the fabric we use is engineered to block 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation. In fact, our fabric has a UPF rating of 2,000 and a conventional rating of 50 plus, ensuring that everything stored beneath it is well-protected from sun exposure.
Even during inclement weather, our fabric structures offer ample protection. Our fabric is rip-resistant and is supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame that can withstand heavy winds and snow. If your construction site is located in an area where turbulent weather is common, our structures can be engineered for higher wind and snow loads. Plus, our fabric is NFPA-701 flame retardant and will not catch fire.
In addition to these great features, Big Top’s fabric structures are commonly used for warehousing on construction sites because they can be:
- Erected quickly and secured to just about any foundation, including gravel, asphalt, and containers
- Moved around the jobsite as needed with a crane
- Outfitted with numerous accessories such as doors, flooring, and insulation
The translucent fabric in our structures allows in enough natural sunlight to eliminate the need for electric lighting. Plus, they maintain a comfortable interior temperature that is an average of 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the temperature outside. Additionally, if your equipment or materials require a conditioned environment, we can provide an HVAC system complete with air ducts and vents.
