Benefits of Fabric Structures for Sports Facilities

Benefits of Fabric Structures as Sports Facilities Professional sports organizations have plenty of resources to build lavish facilities for their athletes. But countless sports training programs across the country also need well-built and comfortable spaces where athletes of all ages can practice. Big Top’s fabric structures are the perfect solution. Here are the advantages our shelters offer to sports organizations of all levels and sizes:

Custom Designs to Support Many Sports Activities

Our temporary buildings can range in size from 20 to 174 feet wide and nearly any length. And because there are no internal columns or guy wires, the entirety of the interior space can be used. Big Top can add interior partitions to section off rooms for offices, weight rooms, locker rooms, and other areas for sports practice. We can also equip a fabric structure with any number of high-quality accessories, including doors, flooring, HVACs, insulation, and more.

Naturally Illuminated to Eliminate the Need for Electric Lighting

The fabric cover of our shelters is translucent and allows natural light to fully illuminate the interior space. This means that daytime practice sessions will not require an electric lighting system, helping to save on energy costs.

Comfortable Interiors for Staff, Athletes & Spectators

Another benefit of the fabric cover is that it has been formulated to repel 99.95% of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, providing ample protection from sun exposure to all who work, practice, or attend sporting events inside the building. This phenomenal thermal protection also helps to keep the interior of our fabric structures at a pleasant temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the temperature outside. Everyone within the shelter will be comfortable, without the need for running artificial climate control around the clock.

Engineered for Long-Lasting Performance

Though our buildings are considered temporary, they are designed to last. In fact, the industrial-grade steel frame that supports our fabric structures gives them the strength to last for decades with little maintenance required. If a fabric sports facility is needed in a climate that experiences turbulent weather, we can engineer the building for heavy wind and snow loads.

Versatile Installations

Because our fabric shelters do not require a concrete pad as a foundation, they can be anchored to nearly anything, even dirt and asphalt. This versatility makes it convenient to deploy a fabric structure exactly where sports organizations need it. Plus, they can be erected quickly, at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, and they do not require help from an outside contractor. In fact, the highly experienced team at Big Top offers turnkey installation services to make deployment as easy as possible.

Cost-Effective Solutions

Big Top’s fabric structures do not require as many materials as permanent buildings, making them a more cost-effective option. And when you add up the energy savings from not having to use electric lighting or artificial climate control, as well as the potential tax benefits you can receive from the IRS, it’s easy to see just how cost-effective our solutions are.
