Fabric Shelters that Can Be Customized for a Range of Uses
When you need a new building to house your operations, store your materials, or for any other use your company may need, there are advantages to choosing a fabric structure over a permanent building. First and foremost, fabric shelters cost a lot less to build than a permanent building, and they can be constructed much quicker, saving you the costs of prolonged labor. Additionally, you can classify a fabric shelter as equipment with the IRS, which may lead to tax benefits.
Secondly, a canvas structure can be customized in myriad ways to meet your needs, and because they are not permanent, they function almost as a living structure, meaning they can be expanded, compartmentalized, and even relocated should the needs of your production change over time.

We Can Equip Your Shelter with a Range of Accessories
Depending on how you will be using your fabric structure, we can include the appropriate accessories. For instance, we can install flooring and personnel doors for mess halls or lunch rooms, large bay doors for moving equipment and vehicles in and out, proper containment for sandblasting and paint applications, an HVAC system for the comfort of your staff, a railing system for telescopic maneuvering, lightning protection that will allow the structure to be used as a muster station, and much more.
Superior Protection for Your Employees, Equipment & Materials
The hallmark feature of Big Top’s fabric shelters is the canvas roof, which repels 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation. Not only will the roof protect your staff from sun exposure, it will also protect your environmentally sensitive materials and maximize the lifespan of the paint jobs and electronics of your aircraft and other vehicles. Furthermore, the fabric roof helps to maintain a comfortable interior temperature that is on average 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature.
Other Benefits of Our Canvas Shelters
In addition to the protective benefits that our fabric roof provides, it is also translucent and will allow plenty of natural sunlight to flood the interior. This can help reduce your energy costs by minimizing or eliminating the need for artificial lighting.
Our fabric shelters can be equipped with a railing system that will allow them to move along your footprint, and they can also be moved as a single unit to somewhere else on your property with a crane. Should your operations relocate to an entirely separate location, your fabric structure can conveniently be disassembled and stored for transport.
The rip-resistant fabric of your shelter will be anchored to a durable, galvanized steel frame that will hold strong through nearly any type of weather. If the building permits in your area require additional engineering for wind and snow loads, Big Top has the expertise to ensure your structure is up to code.
