Why Companies Are Opting for Fabric Structures Instead of Metal & Wood Buildings
Many companies choose fabric structures because of the flexibility they provide. For example, fabric buildings don’t require a permanent concrete foundation, which means they can be broken down if needed and moved to another location. Fabric buildings are also available with mobility kits – such as crane-lifting packages, jacks and wheels, and rails – that can be used to move the buildings around without being disassembled.
There are also some other great benefits offered by fabric structures. For example, they can be made with translucent fabric that allows natural light to shine through, which can minimize the need for electric light, reduce energy costs, and even add points to a LEED score. Fabric buildings are also available in nearly any size and can be used for various purposes such as warehousing, equipment maintenance, blasting and painting, and more.
Big Top is a manufacturer of fabric structures that has been in business since 1979. All of our buildings are made with strong, durable components such as industrial-grade, galvanized steel frames and flame-retardant, rip-resistant, PVC-vinyl fabric. We also offer engineering services for those that have to follow area requirements for wind load, snow load, and seismic activity. Because our buildings are custom made, they can be adapted to accommodate many different uses, from storage and warehousing to blasting and painting.
