Fabric buildings have a long list of uses, from storing temperature-sensitive products to housing large events and gatherings. However, not every fabric building is made equally or meets every business’s demands. Here are a few questions you should ask before construction to help you confirm you’re receiving a high-quality fabric building that meets the needs of your business.
What Customization Options Are Available?
Companies selling fabric structures in the current market have various customization options to choose from. Some of the most popular customizations are HVAC systems, drainage systems, vents, fans, and insulation. Depending on what you need the fabric building for, you should ensure the company can customize it to suit your needs. For example, if you’re using the structure to host an event, you’ll need a good temperature control system to keep guests comfortable.
What Materials Are Used To Build the Structure?
The quality of materials the company uses is the most important topic to ask about before constructing a fabric building. You need to find a company that works with high-quality materials to ensure the safety of the structure. Manufacturers that work with thin gauge steel frames or fabric that isn’t flame or tear-resistant don’t have stability and longevity in mind. Materials such as galvanized steel and PVC-vinyl fabric are better suited for durability and safety.
Can the Structure Withstand the Local Climate?
Depending on the structure’s location, it will be exposed to certain weather conditions, such as heavy snow, frost, rain, storms, hurricanes, and heat. Your fabric structure should be able to withstand these conditions to some extent. It’s important to ask the manufacturer how the structure handles certain conditions. For example, if the building is in an area that often experiences high winds, it’s wise to secure the structure to the foundation instead of temporary ballast blocks or wood posts.
