Large Military Tents Custom Manufactured by Big Top Fabric Structures
As a manufacturer of custom fabric buildings, Big Top Fabric Structures makes large military tents that can be customized to accommodate a wide variety of needs. Thanks to their versatility, our structures can be deployed in nearly any terrain and help ensure mission readiness for the U.S. military.
All the Space You Need for Your Operations
Big Top’s large military tents can be built to nearly any size, ranging up to 174 feet wide and 80 feet high. Because they don’t rely on any interior support poles or guy-wires, our buildings have spacious, unobstructed interiors that are easy to maneuver around in. As a result, our structures are adaptable and can be used for many different applications. Our large military tents are utilized as warehouses and storage buildings, large-area maintenance shelters (LAMS), aircraft hangars and sunshades, mess halls, barracks, vehicle inspection checkpoints, guard shacks, soft wall expeditionary shelters, and more.
UV Protection for Equipment & Troops
The intent of our structures is to support the troops and their mission and to provide a climate-controlled environment where the troops can perform their work efficiently. Our large military tents feature a fabric cover that is formulated to repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation. This outstanding thermal performance helps maximize the lifespan of equipment electronics and paint jobs, and keeps personnel comfortable throughout the day as they go about their duties. In fact, our military tents are naturally climate controlled as the fabric cover helps to maintain a comfortable interior temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature. Having a comfortable work environment is proven to increase productivity.
Yet another great benefit of our large military tents is that they can help to reduce energy consumption. Big Top offers translucent fabric that allows natural light to shine through, which can help to reduce your reliance on artificial lighting.
Durable Enough for Long-Term Operations
Our large military tents are supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel framing system and covered with flame-retardant, rip-resistant PVC-vinyl fabric so they can provide long-lasting protection from the elements. We can engineer our military tents for heavy wind and snow loads for operations located in areas that experience inclement weather, and we can also include lighting protection in the design so that the building can be used as a muster station where troops can seek shelter from a storm.
Portable Military Tents
Big Top’s fabric structures can be quickly deployed at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, and they do not require a concrete pad as a foundation. They can be disassembled, relocated, and reassembled as needed. This makes them an ideal solution for Agile Combat Employment (ACE) applications, as well as for use as hangars and sunshades. In fact, our large military tents are approved by the USACE as being compliant with U.S. Air Force Sunshade Management (AFSM), Air Force Instruction (AFI), and International Building Code (IBC), and they’re Berry Amendment compliant.
Ensuring Mission Readiness
Mission readiness is a key strategy for the military. Readiness measures the ability of a military unit, such as an Army division or a carrier battle group, to accomplish its assigned mission. Logistics, available spare parts, training, equipment, and morale all contribute to readiness, as do our large military structures.
