Maximize Your Warehousing Space with a Custom Fabric Structure
One of the most common ways Big Top’s fabric structures are used is for warehousing. Businesses across nearly every industry require a warehousing space to store their materials and equipment, and our custom structures offer a number of benefits over traditional brick-and-mortar and metal buildings. One key example is cost savings. Our buildings offer lower overall costs because they are less expensive to construct and they are energy efficient thanks to the translucent roof, which eliminates the need for around-the-clock artificial lighting. With these low operating and energy expenses, our structures provide significant cost savings compared to traditional buildings.
However, when you partner with Big Top, space is less of an issue. That’s because:
- Your warehouse can be virtually any size — We can design your fabric warehouse to span 174’ in width, 80’ in height, and nearly any length, easily accommodating your storage racks or oversized materials.
- The interior is clear span — With no internal columns or guy wires taking up room, you’ll be able to utilize every square inch of the interior of your fabric warehouse.
- Our structures are modular — Thanks to their innovative, modular design, our fabric structures can grow with your business. If you run out of space, we can expand your warehouse to provide the additional room you need.
When you compare these benefits to the limited capabilities of permanent buildings, it’s easy to see why our fabric structures are sought out by businesses across the country for their warehousing needs.
Other Benefits of Our Fabric Warehouses
Providing all the interior space you need with the possibility of future expansion is only the beginning of the benefits that one of our shelters can provide for your warehousing needs. Consider also that our fabric warehouses are:
Naturally Climate Controlled
Climate control is important for businesses that need to store environmentally sensitive materials and equipment. Fortunately, the fabric roof of Big Top’s structures is formulated to repel 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation, which will help prevent cracking and loss of elasticity in plastics and rubbers, as well as other damaging effects from sun exposure.
By blocking harmful UV radiation, the fabric roof of our structures will also help 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. Your staff will be able to perform their duties throughout the day while safely and comfortably protected from the sun.
Illuminated with Natural Sunlight
The fabric roof of our shelters is also translucent and will flood the interior of your warehouse with natural sunlight. This will help lessen your dependence on artificial lighting and, in turn, your monthly energy costs.
Customizable in Myriad Ways
Big Top can include a range of accessories to help you make the most of your fabric structure. For instance, we can install HVAC and ventilation systems to maintain indoor air quality, bay doors and durable flooring for forklifts and other equipment, and engineering for heavy wind or snow loads if you’re located in an area with turbulent weather patterns.
