All-Weather Fabric Structures
Big Top Fabric Structures is a leading manufacturer of custom fabric shelters for businesses across a range of industries. Our solutions offer numerous advantages over permanent buildings. And though they’re considered temporary, our fabric structures can last for decades and stand tall through nearly any type of weather.
Strength to Weather the Storm
Our temporary buildings are supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame, which is strong enough to withstand the force of storms. If your operations are located in a particularly turbulent area, as far as climate is concerned, we can engineer your building for heavy wind and snow loads.
A Haven for Field Operations
One of the many unique advantages our fabric structures offer over permanent buildings is that they do not require a concrete pad and can be anchored to nearly anything, even dirt and asphalt. This means they can be deployed nearly anywhere, making them the ideal solution for both on-site and field operations. For the latter, your Big Top fabric structure provides a safe place for your employees to gather, especially when you choose to have lightning protection added, acting as a muster station when the weather turns foul.
Protection From Sun Exposure
Of course, even a bright, sunny day can be dangerous if your staff and equipment are left exposed to the sun. Too much exposure can affect your employees’ health and require them to take numerous break throughout the day, and the sun can quickly degrade materials and equipment. As a solution, the signature fabric cover of a Big Top building is formulated for outstanding thermal protection and repels 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation for a UPF rating of 5,000 and a conventional rating of 50+. Your staff, materials, and equipment will be well protected under the cover your fabric shelter.
Natural Climate Control
Thanks to the impressive thermal performance of the fabric cover, our structures are naturally climate controlled. In fact, the interior of our buildings remains at a pleasant temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the temperature outside. This means your employees will be comfortable throughout the workday without the need for artificial climate control. However, if you prefer a climate-controlled interior, HVAC systems and insulation are just two of the numerous high-quality accessories that Big Top can customize your fabric structure with.
Impressive Energy Efficiency
As if not having to run an HVAC system around the clock wasn’t enough to excite you about energy savings, consider also that the fabric cover is translucent and will allow sunlight to fully illuminate the interior without aid from an electric lighting system. The energy savings delivered by your fabric shelter can quickly add up and pay for your investment over time.
Move Your Shelter as Needed
Big Top’s fabric structures require few materials to build and can be assembled quickly, at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, which makes them an affordable option compared to a brick-and-mortar building. Plus, they can be moved when needed, either around your property intact with a crane or to a new location after disassembling and shipping the building.
