Fabric Structures for the Mining & Mineral Industry
Fabric structures from Big Top offer the versatility needed to meet the demands of the growing mining and mineral industry. Our structures can be erected just about anywhere, whether at company headquarters or out in the field. Unlike permanent structures, our buildings do not need a concrete foundation and, in fact, can be anchored to just about anything, including gravel, asphalt, dirt, and containers. They can also be moved around your worksite with crane rails or a crane-lifting package and can be disassembled for offsite relocation.
In addition to being more versatile, our tension shelters are more economical than permanent buildings. They cost less to erect and reduce energy consumption thanks to the translucent nature of the fabric, which allows in ample sunlight. And, because our fabric structures can be registered as equipment with the IRS, there may be tax incentives that you can benefit from.
Many mining and mineral companies have relied on Big Top’s exceptional fabric structures for a variety of purposes, including:
- Mineral processing
- Field operations
- Materials and equipment storage
- Lunch rooms
- Safety meeting facilities
Equipment and materials stored in our fabric structures will be well-protected, as will any staff. In fact, your team will be comfortable as they work since our fabric also helps to keep a controlled interior that is an average of 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It accomplishes this by blocking 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation. If your headquarters or operations are located in a climate where weather is a consideration, we can engineer our shelters for heavy winds and snow loads.
Like so many other mining and mineral companies, yours too can benefit from the versatility and cost-effectiveness of Big Top’s fabric structures. For more information, contact us today.
