Fabric Structures for Environmental Industries

Fabric StructuresFabric structures from Big Top provide better economical options for waste management and other environmental industries, compared to traditional permanent structures. Our shelters cost less to erect, save on energy costs thanks to the translucent material, and can be registered as equipment with the IRS for potential tax benefits.

If you work in an open-air waste management facility, you know how quickly production can grind to a halt when Mother Nature strikes. But, with one of our fabric structures, you can keep your equipment, materials, and staff safe and dry. Our shelters effectively keep out the wind and rain. And, on sunny days, our fabric will block 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation, and it will help maintain a controlled interior temperature that is an average of 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, keeping your team comfortable as they work.

Another great feature of our fabric structures is that they have a clear span design to provide a spacious interior that is completely free of support columns or guy wires. Additionally, they are well-ventilated to minimize odors. The superior protection and versatility of our temporary buildings make them great for:

  • Waste management
  • Recycling processing
  • Pollution containment
  • Remediation enclosures
  • Decontamination
  • Warehousing and bulk storage

Furthermore, the fabric in Big Top’s structures is rip-resistant and NFPA-701 flame-retardant, and we can engineer a shelter for heavy winds and snow loads. To state it simply: our buildings offer the best weather protection available to ensure your production is able to continue uninterrupted.
