A Clear Span Structure from Big Top Can Meet the Needs of Your Business or Organization
Big Top’s clear span structures have no interior support columns or guy wires, making them great options for any business or organization to use as a warehouse, large-area maintenance shelter, military hangar or sunshade, dry-dock cover, blast and paint shop, lunchroom or assembly room, or another type of building that provides a large, covered space. Since our inception in 1979, Big Top Fabric Structures has been the go-to choice for clear span buildings for companies in just about every industry across the nation.
Clear span structures from Big Top provide more than just a space—our temporary buildings can offer you cost savings on energy usage. And it’s all thanks to the translucent fabric cover, which allows natural light to flood the interior, reducing your dependency on electric lighting. The fabric is also formulated to repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation, helping to maintain an interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler than the outside temperature during the warm months, and 15 degrees warmer when it’s cooler. With one of our clear span structures, you can have a more comfortable and productive working environment without spending a ton of money running your HVAC system.
Protection From the Elements
Because of the exceptional thermal performance of our fabric buildings, your personnel will be safely shielded from the elements. The fabric cover has a UV rating of 50+ to protect your staff, equipment, and materials from damage caused by sun exposure. In fact, our shelters can help maximize the lifespan of your equipment’s paint jobs and electronics.
Big Top’s clear span structures are supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame that makes them extra durable against inclement weather. We can add engineering for heavy wind and snow loads for operations in climates where such weather can otherwise halt production. Plus, the fabric cover is NFPA701 flame retardant. Indeed, our fabric structures can be used for decades with proper maintenance, providing a reliable and long-term solution for your business.
Furthermore, unlike buildings made from permanent materials, Big Top’s fabric structures can be moved around your property when assembled with a crane-lifting package, or disassembled and relocated to a different jobsite. They can also be stored for future use.
Our clear span structures require fewer materials and take less time to build than permanent buildings. In fact, our fabric shelters can be assembled at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, providing significant savings in construction costs. And with our turnkey installation service, you won’t have to burn man-hours using your own staff for the work. Lastly, because our fabric buildings can be deemed as equipment with the IRS, you may benefit from tax advantages.
