What Are Clear Span Buildings?

Clear Span BuildingsClear span buildings are large, usually dome-shaped structures that don’t require any vertical support poles or guy wires. As a result, they have wide, spacious interiors that can be used for storage, equipment and vehicle maintenance, large gatherings, and much more. These buildings can also be made of fabric, metal, and other materials, though fabric buildings usually offer the most flexibility and cost effectiveness.

Fabric clear span buildings typically cost less per square foot than those made of metal or some other material. Plus, fabric buildings won’t require a permanent concrete foundation, which can save money when the time comes for installation. Additionally, fabric buildings can often be claimed as equipment, making them eligible for tax benefits that buildings made of metal are not eligible for.

At Big Top, we have been making fabric buildings since 1979. All of our buildings are custom-made to order, so our team will work with you closely to ensure that your building is the right size and has the right features for your jobsite. We can integrate add-ons such as HVAC, specialty doors, flooring, lighting, and energy-efficient translucent fabric that allows natural light to shine through. Additionally, our buildings are made of durable, long-lasting materials, such as industrial-grade, galvanized steel frames and NFPA701 flame-retardant fabric.
