Clear Span Structures Can Keep Your Equipment & Employees Protected

Clear Span StructuresClear span structures are large buildings that usually have a dome-like shape. They also have spacious, unobstructed interiors and large openings in the front and back. Because they can cover such a large area and impose no obstacles like guy-wires or vertical support poles, these structures have proven themselves a staple for businesses with need for storage space, employee shelter, or a covered area in which to operate in on a daily basis.

At Big Top, we specialize in making custom fabric clear span structures. One benefit of opting for structures made of fabric rather than traditional metal or wood is that they’re less expensive to manufacture, and therefore to purchase. Also, metal and wood are opaque and block natural light, which means buildings made of these materials have to rely on electricity for lighting. Big Top has translucent fabric that can be used to allow natural light to shine through into the structure, which can reduce reliance on artificial light and lower the cost of electricity. This is one reason why Big Top’s fabric structures can earn points toward a LEED rating.

Other benefits of Big Top’s fabric structures include:

  • Durability – Our fabric is made of flame-retardant PVC vinyl fibers, and our fames are made of industrial-grade galvanized steel.
  • Complete weather protection – Protect your employees and equipment not only from rain, sleet, snow, and hail, but also the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, as our fabric blocks out 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B light.
  • Tax benefits – Big Top’s fabric buildings can be deemed as equipment, which can have tax advantages that metal and wood buildings don’t have.
