Fabric Structures as Vehicle Inspection Facilities and Guard Shacks
Big Top’s fabric structures offer a more convenient and cost effective solution, compared to permanent buildings, for organizations that require security checkpoints. Our shelters cost less to erect, can be anchored to nearly any foundation, and are supported by a galvanized steel frame to hold strong over many years of use.
Protection for Your Staff and Equipment
Under one of our tensile shelters, your staff will be free to perform vehicle inspections and other security duties while safe from wind, rain, and snow. Plus, the fabric roof blocks 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, protecting your personnel and equipment from too much sun exposure. As an added benefit, the fabric roof is also translucent and will allow in enough natural light to illuminate your checkpoint without the use of artificial lighting.
Big Top at the Border
As just one example of the many ways our structures have been used as security checkpoints, just look to San Ysidro, the busiest land port of entry in the world. The U.S. Border Patrol needed a flexible solution for 17 different checkpoints along an active highway near the U.S.-Mexico border, and Big Top delivered. Under our shelters, Border Patrol agents are now able to conduct their inspections out of sight and comfortably out of the sun.
If the needs of your organization change, our fabric structures can be moved around your property intact with a crane, or conveniently disassembled and shipped to a different location. And, because they can be deemed as equipment with the IRS, you may even benefit from tax advantages.
