Fabric Structures as Waste Management Facilities

Waste ManagementBig Top’s fabric structures are increasingly in demand by recycling and waste management companies due to the protection our shelters provide from the elements. Open-air facilities require calm weather to be operational. As soon as a storm rolls through, production can come to a swift halt as your crew runs for cover. And, cardboard and other recyclables can lose their value if they become wet or damaged, which can potentially eat into your profits. But, you won’t have to worry about these risks with a Big Top fabric structure.

Big Top has been helping companies in the waste management industry remain operational during inclement weather with our fabric structures since our founding in 1979. Not only will the fabric roof in our shelters keep rain, snow, and wind out, but it’ll also block 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, providing superior protection for your workers and your equipment from sun exposure. Additionally, our shelter are:

  • Spacious – They can be built to nearly any size and have a clear-span design that is free of support columns and guy wires, maximizing the available space for your production.
  • Mobile – Our fabric structures can be moved around the jobsite with a crane or crane rails and can be disassembled for relocation to a separate facility.
  • Customizable – We can outfit your shelter with any number of accessories to meet your needs, including doors and flooring.

Furthermore, our fabric structures can be engineered for heavy wind and snow loads, and the rip-resistant fabric is NFPA701 flame-retardant. Plus, the natural ventilation provided by our shelters helps to reduce unpleasant odors. Our tensile buildings can be conveniently anchored to just about any foundation, including ecology blocks and shipping containers, making them one of the most versatile and cost-effective options for waste management companies.
