Custom-Made Canvas Storage Buildings Provided by Big Top Fabric Structures

Canvas Storage Buildings

Organizations in all industries have trusted Big Top Fabric Structures for canvas storage buildings since 1979. As a custom manufacturer, we closely work with each of our customers to build a structure that meets the demands required by their business. We have experience working with companies in oil and gas, energy and environmental, mining and mineral, military, aviation, and other industries.

Custom Designs for Myriad Business Applications

Big Top’s canvas storage buildings can be customized in various ways. First and foremost, our structures are available in virtually any size. They can span up to 174 feet wide and 80 feet tall, with virtually no limit to length. And because there are no internal columns or guy wires, the entirety of the interior space can be utilized. No matter the scale of your storage needs, our fabric buildings can be made to accommodate even the largest of projects. Secondly, we can add any number of additional features like doors, ventilation, HVAC systems, insulation, and more, ensuring that your fabric storage building meets all of your requirements.

A Long List of Advantages

In addition to being 100% custom, there are other reasons why one of Big Top’s fabric storage buildings could be the perfect solution for your business. Consider that they are:

Built to Last

Our fabric structures are made with industrial-grade, galvanized steel frames that provide unwavering structural support. With proper maintenance, our shelters can last for decades, providing a reliable, long-term solution for your business needs.

Energy Efficient

The translucent fabric cover allows natural light to illuminate the interior, minimizing or even eliminating the need for artificial light. It is also formulated for superior thermal performance and will repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation. This great feature helps to maintain a pleasant interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature, lessening your reliance on artificial climate control. Our fabric buildings can help contribute to your LEED score.

Protective Against the Elements

Not only will your staff, materials, and equipment be sheltered from rain and snow inside one of our canvas storage buildings, but they will also be shielded from the damaging effects of too much sun exposure. Your staff will be comfortable throughout the workday, requiring fewer breaks, and the lifespan of your equipment’s paint jobs and electronics will be maximized. If your operations are located in an area that experiences inclement weather, we can add engineering to your fabric storage building for heavy wind and snow loads. Additionally, our shelters are NFPA701 flame retardant.


Unlike permanent storage buildings, our fabric structures are versatile enough to keep pace with the changing needs of your business. You Big Top shelter can be moved around your property intact with a crane, and it can also be disassembled and shipped to a new location.

Cost Effective

Our fabric storage buildings require fewer materials than traditional brick-and-mortar buildings, and they can be assembled at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, providing substantial savings on construction. And with our turnkey installation service, you won’t have to hire labor for the project. Additionally, you can deem your Big Top building as equipment with the IRS, which may lead to tax benefits.
