What’s the Best Kind of Equipment Storage Building for Your Operations?
If your company is in the construction, oil and gas, mining and mineral, or other industry, you need a safe place to store your equipment. One option is to build a permanent metal building, but this can have its drawbacks. First, you’d have to deconstruct the building if your production should relocate. Plus, the costs involved can take a toll on your budget. A more convenient, modern solution is a fabric equipment storage building from Big Top.
Portability & Cost Savings
Our fabric structures are much more cost effective than permanent buildings, as they are built from affordable materials and take less time to construct. They can be anchored to nearly any type of foundation, saving you the expense of having a concrete foundation poured. They can also be conveniently disassembled and shipped to another location for use, eliminating the need for hiring multiple contractors. In fact, we can provide your team with the proper training on how to build and disassemble your equipment storage building without the need for outside help. You’ll also be able to cut your energy costs thanks to the translucent roof, which will allow plenty of natural sunlight into the interior, eliminating the need for artificial lighting. And, because our shelters can be claimed as equipment with the IRS, you may even benefit from tax savings.
Superior Protection for Your Equipment
Another key advantage that Big Top’s fabric storage buildings can offer your business is a high-level of protection for your equipment. The fabric roof is formulated to repel 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, which can otherwise fade the paint on your equipment and burn out its electronics. Your staff will also appreciate this benefit as it will keep them protected from sun exposure and will help to maintain a comfortable interior temperature that is on average 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Furthermore, the fabric roof of your structure is NFPA701 flame retardant.
Customized to Meet Your Equipment Storage Needs
Big Top doesn’t provide one-size-fits-all equipment storage building solutions. Instead, we custom-design each one we sell to meet the unique needs of our clients’ operations. We can customize your storage facility in myriad ways. For instance, your fabric building can be:
- Nearly any size – No matter how large your equipment is, we can design a building to fit all of it. And, there are no internal columns or guy-wires in our structures, so you’ll be able to use every square inch of interior space.
- Equipped with various accessories – These can include large bay doors, durable flooring that can hold the weight of your equipment, insulation, climate control, and much more.
- Mobile by design – With this flexible functionality, your building can telescope open for crane access. You can add on to your building if you run out of space in the future, and it’s crane liftable if it ever needs to be relocated.
- Engineered for heavy wind and snow loads – We are very experienced with local building codes and can ensure your storage building is compliant no matter where your operations are located.
