Fabric Shelters for Waste Recycling

Whether you are a municipal recycling agency or a private recycling firm, tensioned fabric structures from Big Top Manufacturing are the ideal buildings for your industry needs. Recycling and waste management cannot occur in the open in many locales, and when shelters are not used, efforts can be hindered by inclement weather, such as heat, cold and rain. A prefabricated fabric shelter is an affordable alternative to a traditional, hard-walled building that offers several benefits and few disadvantages.

Fabric Structured Offer Wide-Open Space

Big Top fabric shelters are made of an arched frame of galvanized steel with a PVC fabric cover pulled tautly over it to create a roof that can support 40 lbs. of snow per square inch and walls that can withstand 120-mph winds. The structures do not use any internal columns and provide large, open spaces that can accommodate vehicles and recycling equipment of all sizes.

These shelters have several options for doorways. The ends can be left open when a full enclosure is not necessary, or they can include small doors for personnel or bay doors for vehicles. These doors can be left as manual entryways, but they can also support automated systems for opening and closing. In addition, railing systems can be installed in the roof so that sections can slide away for cranes or additional ventilation.

Environmentally Friendly Fabric Shelters

An environmental activity, such as recycling, should be accomplished in an environmentally friendly building. Big Top recycling shelters help to diminish the impact of recycling operations on the immediate environment and surrounding communities. The engineered fabric allows daylight to enter, which reduces the need for electrical lighting, but it also blocks harmful UV rays. Efficient venting systems can also be built into the structures, and extreme temperatures can be controlled with heating and cooling systems.

Durable and Mobile Fabric Building Solutions

Waste recycling fabric shelters from Big Top are highly durable. The steel frame is galvanized to resist rust and is guaranteed to be maintenance free for life. In addition, the fabric walls are available in several weights, and the strongest option has a minimum lifespan of 20 years. These structures can be built upon nearly any type of surface, and where a permanent foundation is not available, mobile foundation blocks can be used.

If the fabric shelter is only required on a temporary basis, it can be dismantled and stored to extend its lifespan. It can also be moved to a new location with wheels or by crane.
