Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Facilities

Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing Facilities As a savvy business owner, you’re always on the lookout for ways to reduce operating costs. One key way to accomplish this is to reduce your energy usage. Traditional manufacturing facilities, made from brick and mortar or similar materials, often require electric lighting and climate control during operating hours. When you consider the costs of each, it’s easy to understand why you’re looking for ways to improve energy efficiency and lower costs. At Big Top Fabric Structures, we can offer you a solution.

Temporary Buildings Designed for Energy Efficiency

We specialize in designing energy-efficient commercial buildings for our valued customers in the manufacturing industry. Our fabric structures are large enough to accommodate your production, ranging up to 80 feet high, 174 feet wide, and nearly any length, and can help reduce your dependence on artificial power and its associated costs.

Illuminated by Sunlight

The key feature of a Big Top temporary building is the fabric cover. This cover is translucent and allows natural light to fully illuminate the interior, minimizing or even eliminating the need to run an electric lighting system.

Natural Climate Control

Another great benefit of the fabric cover is that it is formulated for outstanding thermal performance. In fact, it blocks up to 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation for an impressive UPF rating of 2,000 and conventional rating of 50+. This means that, on average, the temperature within our energy-efficient commercial buildings remains a pleasant 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature. Your staff will be comfortable throughout the workday with no need for an HVAC system running overtime. Plus, your employees, materials, and equipment will be well-protected from sun exposure.

Substantial Energy Savings

Factor in the cost savings of no longer requiring either electric lighting or artificial climate control, and you’ll have a clear picture why our fabric structures are so popular with manufacturing companies.

Other Ways Our Fabric Structures Can Help Your Bottom Line

Big Top’s fabric shelters require fewer materials, take less time to build (they can be erected at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day), and do not require an outside contractor for assembly. This all adds up to significant savings compared to constructing a new permanent building. And we can help minimize downtime for your operations by handling the assembly for you with our turnkey installation services. Furthermore, our energy-efficient commercial buildings can be registered as equipment with the IRS, which can lead to tax advantages for your business.

Versatile Deployment for Your Business Needs

Because they do not require a concrete pad as a foundation, and in fact, can be anchored to nearly anything, our fabric structures can be deployed almost anywhere your operations are located. Should you decide to relocate your manufacturing facility in the future, your Big Top fabric structure can come with you, whether that means moving the building intact around your current footprint with a crane or disassembling it for deployment at a new location.
