Fabric Structures for Recycling

Recycling has becoming a huge part of everyday life for people all over the world. And with that push to recycle comes the need for buildings to handle the increased volume of recyclable goods. Whether you’re a municipal recycling agency or a private recycling firm, tensioned fabric structures from Big Top Manufacturing are the ideal buildings for your industry needs. Recycling and waste management cannot occur in the open in many locales, and when shelters are not used, efforts can be hindered by inclement weather such as heat, cold and rain. A prefabricated fabric structure is an effective and affordable alternative to traditional, hard-walled buildings.

Our fabric structures can be erected quickly and easily, require little to no maintenance and can last for 20 years or more. They are also built on a modular design, so should the needs of your team change, you can disassemble and relocate them with ease.  And when the structure is no longer needed, it can be dismantled just as easily as it was constructed. Here are a few more advantages of our fabric structures:

  • THEY OFFER STRONG, WIDE OPEN SPACES – Big Top fabric structures are made of a galvanized steel arched frame, with a PVC fabric cover pulled tautly over it to create a roof that can support 40 lbs. of snow per square inch and walls that can withstand 120-mph winds. The structures do not use any internal columns and provide large, open spaces that can accommodate vehicles and recycling equipment of all sizes.
  • THEY ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – An environmental activity such as recycling, should be accomplished in an environmentally friendly building. Big Top recycling structures help to diminish the impact of recycling operations on the immediate environment and surrounding communities. The engineered fabric allows daylight to enter, which reduces the need for electrical lighting, and also blocks harmful UV rays. Efficient venting systems can also be built into the structures, and extreme temperatures can be controlled with custom heating and cooling systems.
  • THEY ARE DURABLE AND MOBILE – Waste recycling fabric structures from Big Top are highly durable. The steel frame is galvanized to resist rust and is virtually maintenance free. In addition, the fabric walls are available in several weights, and the strongest option has a minimum lifespan of 20 years. These structures can be built upon nearly any type of surface, and where a permanent foundation is not available, mobile foundation blocks can be used. If the fabric structure is only required on a temporary basis, it can be dismantled and stored to extend its lifespan. It can also be moved to a new location with wheels or by crane.

So if you’re looking for a turnkey, durable solution for your recycling operations, Big Top fabric structures are the answer. From conception and design, through manufacturing and implementation, we have you covered.
