Big Top Fabric Structures has Proudly Served the Military for Many Decades

Fabric StructuresWhen the U.S. Military needs fabric structures, they turn to Big Top. We have enjoyed many years of successful partnerships with the military due to the unmatched strength, flexibility, and versatility of our temporary buildings. One way we stand apart from our competitors is the protection our fabric provides for equipment, materials, and personnel on American bases throughout the globe where our products are utilized. Case in point: our rip-resistant fabric is not only NFPA-701 flame-retardant, but also blocks 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation for a UPF rating of 2,000 and a conventional rating of 50 plus.

Our fabric structures can be deployed to anywhere in the world and can be assembled quickly. In the event that they need to be relocated, they can be easily disassembled. Because our shelter systems are temporary, they will not use up the square footage of your base. In our many years serving the U.S. Military, we have provided buildings that have been used as:

  • Large area maintenance shelters (LAMS)
  • Hangars for aircraft and drones
  • Vehicle inspection shelters and guard shacks
  • Sunshades
  • Chow or mess halls
  • Warehouses and other storage facilities

Furthermore, we can size our fabric structures to your exact specifications and can include any number of accessories depending on your needs. For instance, we can include doors, electric lighting, HVAC equipment, gutters, lightning protection, and more. Our shelters can be anchored to virtually any type of foundation, even dirt, gravel, concrete, and asphalt.

Big Top is approved by USACE as being compliant with U.S. Air Force Sunshade Management (AFSM), Air Force Instruction (AFI), and IBC. All of our fabric structures are Berry Amendment compliant.

We’ve provided our fabric structures to military bases and battle operations all over the world. To learn more about how we can custom-build a shelter for your base, contact Big Top today.
