Benefits of Keeping Equipment Under Cover of a Fabric Structure

Benefits of Fabric Equipment Storage Buildings Businesses requiring equipment storage space need not invest heavily in a brick-and-mortar building. Fabric structures, which cost far less, offer more utility than permanent buildings and can adapt to your changing business needs over the years. Owning a fabric equipment storage facility can save you both upfront and ongoing costs, as its energy efficiency reduces operating costs. At Big Top Fabric Structures, our fabric equipment storage buildings offer all these advantages. Plus, they offer superior protection from the elements.

Protecting Your Equipment From Exposure

The fabric cover of our structures is formulated for outstanding UV protection. In fact, it blocks 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation. Our fabric shelters have a UPF rating of 2,000 and a conventional rating of 50+, and will help maximize the lifespan of your equipment’s electronics and paint jobs by shielding it from sun exposure. This impressive thermal performance also means that the interior of our fabric structures remains at a pleasant temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the temperature outside.

Installed Wherever You Need It

Another advantage Big Top’s fabric structures have over permanent buildings is that they do not require a concrete foundation—they can be anchored to nearly anything, even asphalt and stacks of shipping containers. This means construction companies can have their equipment storage building on the jobsite, and fixed-based operators and military organizations can deploy aircraft hangars and sunshades directly on the flight line, ensuring mission readiness. They can also be assembled quickly, at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day.

Expand or Relocate Your Equipment Storage Building

A Big Top fabric structure can grow with you. Thanks to its modular design, it can be expanded to accommodate additional equipment you add to your operations. Your fabric shelter can also be moved intact around your property with a crane, and it can be disassembled and shipped to a new location. If the nature of your business means frequently relocating or you expect to change locations down the road, you can eliminate the hassle and costs of renting or constructing a new equipment storage building, as your fabric structure will come with you.

Custom Features to Make the Most of Your Structure

Since 1979, we’ve been known for our exceptional service. We don’t offer just a few designs for our customers to choose from. Rather, we customize our fabric structures to meet their individual needs. Your fabric equipment storage building can range up to 80 feet high, 174 feet wide, and almost any length. We can install durable flooring that can support the weight of heavy equipment, bay doors, insulation, and a host of other accessories to meet your needs.

Energy Efficiency Benefits

In addition to its outstanding thermal performance, the fabric cover of our buildings is translucent and allows natural light to flood the interior. This eliminates the need for electric lighting during the day, significantly saving on energy costs.
