Fabric Mining & Exploration Structures

Mining & Exploration Structures Mining and exploration operations are almost always carried out in the field. And, of course, the entire industry is mobile, as production is often relocated to keep pace with the availability of raw materials. When setting up a base of operations in remote locations, mining and mineral companies opt for Big Top’s fabric structures. Our solutions offer the versatility, durability, and low operating costs that help make mining and exploration operations successful.

The Ideal Solution for Field Operations

Our mining structures do not require a concrete pad as a foundation and can be anchored to nearly anything, even gravel and dirt. And because they’re not permanent, our temporary buildings can be disassembled and shipped to a new location for redeployment. They can be assembled quickly, at a rate of 2,500 square feet per day, and they do not require a specialized contractor to be built. In fact, with training, your own team can handle assembly. Or, if you prefer your staff to stay focused on other tasks, Big Top can provide turnkey installation services for the utmost convenience.

Built for Long-Lasting Applications

Our temporary buildings for mining applications are supported by an industrial-grade, galvanized steel frame that will stand the test of time. The fabric cover is rip resistant and NFPA701 flame retardant, and we can engineer your exploration structure for heavy wind and snow loads. We can also equip it with lightning protection so the facility can be used as a muster station when storms break out. With proper maintenance, your Big Top fabric structure can withstand nearly any type of weather for decades.

Exceptional Cost Savings

Big Top’s fabric mining and exploration structures provide a nice return on investment in the long run. First, at the start of your project, you’ll be pleased to know how affordable your new temporary building is. Because it requires fewer materials than a brick-and-mortar building, construction costs are much lower. As your production progresses, you’ll reap savings every month due to the superior level of thermal protection that our fabric structures offer.

Designed for Thermal Performance

The fabric cover of our mining structures is formulated to repel 99.95% of UV-A and UV-B radiation, which gives our buildings an impressive UPF rating of 2,000 and conventional rating of 50+. Your staff, materials, and equipment will be well-protected from sun exposure.

Natural Climate Control

This outstanding thermal performance delivers another key benefit by keeping the interior of our fabric structures at a pleasant temperature that is, on average, 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature. This means you won’t have to run an HVAC system and pay the associated costs to keep your employees comfortable.

Illuminated by Sunlight

The fabric cover of our temporary buildings is translucent to allow natural light to illuminate the interior, providing yet another opportunity to reap energy savings as your facility will not require electric lighting during daytime operations.
