Durable Cloth Buildings Made by Big Top Fabric Structures

Cloth BuildingsWhen it comes to cloth buildings, Big Top is one of the industry’s foremost manufacturers. “Cloth” may not be the right word, though, because it typically denotes organic fibers (like cotton or wool), which probably aren’t the best choice to cover a large building. At Big Top, our “cloth” is a PVC-vinyl material that is flame retardant and rip resistant. Unlike organic fibers like cotton and wool, PVC vinyl can stand up to rain, snow, sleet, hail, and sunshine without being damaged. We also offer engineered cloth buildings for those in areas that need to comply with regulations for wind load, snow load, and seismic activity.

In addition to durability, Big Top’s cloth buildings are spacious and versatile. They do not require any vertical support poles or guy wires and have a wide span in between the two edges of the frame. As a result, they can be adapted to nearly any use case. In the past, we have built warehouses, large area maintenance shelters, military aircraft hangars and sunshades, and more. Our cloth buildings are also:

  • Energy efficient – Big Top offers translucent fabric that allows natural light to shine through, which can reduce or eliminate dependence on artificial light and add points to a LEED score.
  • Productivity boosters – Heat is something that can greatly impact human endurance. When there’s too much of it, exhaustion can set in quickly, not to mention the risk of heat-related injuries like heat stroke. When there’s too little of it, people have a tendency to slow down, and there’s also the risk of complications like frostbite. Big Top’s structures can provide a comfortable working environment to keep productivity levels high.
