Do You Need a Fabric Covered Building?
Are you wondering whether to invest in a fabric covered building? If so, it could help to consider the many benefits that fabric buildings have to offer. For example, did you know that fabric buildings can provide the same amount of protection from the elements as metal and wood buildings for a fraction of the price? That’s right – despite costing less per square foot than metal and wood buildings, fabric buildings protect just as well against Mother Nature.
Another great benefit of having a fabric covered building is portability. Since fabric buildings don’t require a permanent concrete foundation, they can be disassembled and moved elsewhere if needed. This portability means that fabric buildings can also usually be deemed as equipment instead of permanent structures, which can have tax benefits.
Other benefits include:
- Energy efficiency – We offer fabric that allows natural light to shine through. This fabric can help minimize your reliance on artificial lighting which will reduce your monthly energy bills.
- Ultraviolet protection – The PVC-vinyl fabric that we use to cover our buildings blocks out 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B light, which can help protect your employees and equipment from the detriments caused by the sun’s UV rays.
- Heat and temperature reduction – On average, a Big Top fabric covered building is 15 degrees warmer than outside temperatures during the winter and 15 degrees cooler than outside temperatures during the summer. Our structures can provide a comfortable working environment for employees, which can help to increase productivity.
- Meets Building Codes – They can be engineered to abide by requirements for wind load, snow load, and seismic activity.
