Durable Fabric Structures, Customized for Your Business Needs
Big Top Fabric Structures is the premier manufacturer of custom fabric buildings for businesses across a range of different industries. Our structures offer numerous benefits over traditional brick-and-mortar buildings, including cost savings and versatile designs that can adapt to the growing needs of your business.
Our fabric structures require fewer materials than conventional buildings, and they take less time to construct. In fact, our fabric shelters can be assembled at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day. That all adds up to significant savings versus hiring an architect and construction company to build a permanent structure.
The fabric roof of our structures is translucent. This unique design allows natural sunlight to fully illuminate the interior, minimizing your dependence on artificial lighting and the energy costs that go with it. And, our buildings can save energy on climate control thanks to the UV-reflective roof.
Protection From the Elements
Big Top’s signature fabric roof is formulated to repel 99.95% of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, ensuring ample protection for your staff and materials. This also helps to maximize the lifespan of the paint jobs and electronics of your equipment and vehicles. With a UPF rating of 2,000 and a conventional rating of 50 plus, our fabric structures naturally maintain a pleasant interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Your employees will be well protected and comfortable throughout the workday.
Unlike permanent buildings that require a concrete slab as a foundation, our fabric structures can be anchored to nearly anything, even asphalt. For added height, they can be anchored to stacks of ecology blocks or shipping containers, the latter of which can then be used as additional storage or office space.
At Big Top, we will take the time to learn how you plan to use your structure, and from there, we’ll design the perfect fabric building for your needs. Size options range up to 174 feet wide, 80 feet high, and nearly any length. There are numerous add-ons to select from, including HVAC units, air remediation systems, insulation, durable roadway matting, personnel and bay doors, and lightning protection that will allow you to use the building as a muster station for the safety of your staff. We can also ensure your fabric structure meets local building codes for snow and wind loads, and we can even install a telescopic roof for easy crane access.
Big Top’s temporary fabric structures can keep pace with the changing needs of your business. If you need to move the building, it can be lifted intact with a crane. It can also be disassembled and shipped to a new location should your base of operations relocate.
