Fabric Structures Attached To Ecology Blocks
One of the reasons why Big Top’s fabric structures are so versatile is because they can be anchored to nearly any foundation, including ecology blocks and pony walls. In fact, by stacking cement blocks to use as side walls for your shelter, you can save on costs because the structure won’t need to be as tall. Compare this to the costs involved with constructing a permanent building, and you can easily see how a fabric structure from Big Top is a much more cost-effective and versatile solution.
Dump trucks, loaders, and other specialized equipment can easily maneuver throughout the building for offloading and storage. Also, a fabric structure anchored to a retaining wall will prevent contamination from the outside elements, ensuring your materials are kept safe and dry.
Our fabric structures on blocks/pony walls have been utilized by companies across many industries in numerous ways, including waste management, recycling, salt and sand storage, mining and mineral, containment facilities, and more. That’s because, in addition to a versatile design and cost savings, our fabric structures provide many other benefits thanks to the fabric that we use, which is specially engineered to:
- Provide an abundance of natural light to reduce the need for electric lighting
- Block 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation, providing ample protection for your crew and equipment
- These pony wall buildings maintain a comfortable interior climate that is 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature
Furthermore, the fabric in Big Top’s structures is rip-resistant and NFPA701 flame-retardant as stipulated by the International Building Code. If your operations are located in a climate with strong weather conditions, we can engineer a shelter for heavy wind and snow loads. We can also include any number of accessories to meet your needs. These can include an HVAC system, doors and flooring, lightning protection, insulation, and much more.
