Industrial Tents & Fabric Structures
It’s likely that you or someone you know has heard of the large, round industrial tents that have become the hallmark of festivals, fairs, and other special events since the 1960s. You may also have seen temporary fabric structures erected at construction sites, or military bases to protect against the elements or cover construction equipment while it’s not in use. Regardless of your industry, temporary structures can help improve efficiency and productivity as well as safety in many ways. This guide will explain how to find the right structure and setup options for your project, no matter how big or small it is.
Why would someone want temporary structures?
While fabric structures may seem more appropriate for temporary, short-term purposes, they can be an excellent choice for many long-term projects. For example, an office worker who is moving to a new city might decide that a structure made from steel and aluminum (conventional building materials) would be far too costly to tear down after just a few years. A fabric structure will be more affordable in these circumstances; even so, it could still have all the same amenities as permanent office space.
Environmental Benefits of Industrial Tents
Temporary structures made from industrial tents provide many environmental benefits for green businesses. Fabric buildings have a much smaller carbon footprint than traditional building materials and can help your business meet sustainability goals more easily. This cost-saving measure is also a wise choice if you’re considering offering green alternatives to customers who are environmentally conscious, as it helps you demonstrate an ability to do so in an efficient manner. Whether they’re used as short-term storage units or service trailers, industrial tents offer a variety of environmental benefits that make them well worth their relatively low price point.
What are some types of fabric tents?
It’s common for companies to use temporary fabric structures as part of their everyday marketing. These aren’t just tents, either; fabric buildings come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are used by companies all over the world. Some examples include mobile barns, employee lunch facilities, sporting arenas, airplane hangers, corporate canopy workspaces, and more. That said, with new materials being developed every day it is possible that there are countless other uses for fabric structures in the very near future!
