Fabric Structures for Indoor Sports Complexes

Fabric Structures for Indoor Sports ComplexesSchools and private companies that need an indoor sports complex but don’t want to make a heavy investment in a new building can find a solution with Big Top Fabric Structures. Our fabric shelters can be custom-built to meet the requirements of nearly every type of sport, and they cost far less than permanent buildings.

Cost Savings

Our fabric sports complexes require fewer materials than their brick-and-mortar counterparts, and they can be assembled much faster at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, helping to keep you on budget.

Energy Efficiency

One of the primary benefits of our fabric structures is the low energy usage they require. The fabric roof is translucent and allows ample sunlight into the interior, fully illuminating your sports activities without having to rely on artificial light. By not having to run a lighting system, you can further save on costs.

A Comfortable Interior

The fabric roof is also designed for thermal performance and will block 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, for a UPF rating of 2,000 and a conventional rating of 50 plus. Not only will this help protect everyone within the complex from sun exposure, but it will also keep them comfortable by maintaining an interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. And that’s without help from an HVAC system!

Multi-Room Sports Complexes

Big Top’s fabric structures are clear span with no internal columns or guy wires taking up space. Plus, they can be virtually any size. We can include partitions to section off rooms, such as locker rooms, training rooms, and offices. If you have old shipping containers that you’re no longer using, we can use these as the foundation for your fabric sports complex, adding extra height and allowing you to put the interiors of your containers to other uses.

Custom Designs

When you partner with Big Top for a fabric indoor sports complex, we’ll work closely with you to design the perfect building for your needs. Indeed, unlike our competitors, we don’t offer a few cookie-cutter designs to choose from. We can customize your fabric structure with a range of accessories including doors, flooring, insulation, HVAC systems, ventilation, and much more.

A Long-Lasting, Versatile Solution

Our fabric structures are built to last. The industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame will stand strong in nearly any type of weather, and we can even engineer your sports complex for heavy wind and snow loads. Should you need to relocate your complex, your fabric building from Big Top can come with you. It can be moved intact around your property with a crane, and it can be disassembled and shipped to a new location altogether.
