Are Fabric Tension Structures Durable?
Have you ever wondered about the durability of fabric tension structures? It’s amazing how durable they really are. In fact, they can provide the same amount of protection from the elements as buildings made from metal and wood. Not every fabric building is created equal, though, so if you want one that lasts, you’ll want to spend a little time learning about the materials that comprise them.
Fabric tension structures have two main components: frames and fabric. The frames are important because they hold the fabric in place and create the shape of the building. The fabric is important because it keeps out inclement weather and ultraviolet rays, and acts as an insulator, keeping the building warm in the winter and cool in the summer. That said, if you need a fabric building that you can rely on, you’ll want one that has durable frames and fabric.
At Big Top, we’ve been manufacturing fabric structures since 1979. Our buildings are made of highly durable materials because we are committed to producing products that last. Our frames are made of industrial-grade, galvanized steel, and our fabric is made of flame-retardant, rip-resistant PVC vinyl. We also offer engineering services for those in areas that require adherence to building codes for wind load, snow load, and seismic activity.
Additionally, we custom manufacture every building we make. This means our buildings can be tailor-made in specific sizes, with features like HVAC, lighting, doors, and flooring, with translucent fabric and much more.
