The Advantages of a Fabric Indoor Sports Facility
Professional sports companies, schools, and other athletic organizations that need an indoor sports facility should consider partnering with Big Top. Our versatile fabric structures offer many advantages over permanent gymnasiums. For instance, consider that a fabric sports facility from Big Top:
Costs Less & Takes Less Time to Build
Far fewer materials are required for a fabric sports facility compared to a permanent one, which can go a long way toward cost savings. Plus, our structures can be erected at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, and they do not require the help of an outside contractor, further saving on construction costs.
Is Naturally Illuminated
Thanks to the translucent fabric roof, an indoor sports facility from Big Top is naturally illuminated with sunlight, minimizing the need for artificial lighting and the energy costs that go with it. Of course, the love of the game may mean practicing or competing into the night, in which case we can provide a plethora of lighting accessories to customize your facility.
Maintains a Comfortable Interior Temperature
The fabric roof that we use in our structures is formulated to repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation, offering exceptional protection from the sun for all those inside. The roof also helps to maintain a pleasant interior temperature that is, on average, 15-20 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature. That way, all the athletes, coaches, staff, and fans under the roof will be comfortable. We can also install a ventilation package consisting of exhaust fans and motorized louvre vents to improve air circulation.
Can Be Sectioned Off Into Separate Rooms
Most times, an indoor sports facility requires more than just an open space for athletes to perform. Locker rooms, bathrooms, training rooms, weight rooms, and even dormitories are common in gymnasiums. For your project, Big Top can section off interior spaces that can be used for these purposes. Another idea is to mount the fabric roof of your sports facility onto shipping containers that can be repurposed for these vital amenities. This turned out to be the ideal option for our project in Senegal, where we built Africa’s first NBA Academy.
