Big Top’s Mobile Fabric Structures Are Convenient Solutions for Any Industry
One of the most convenient features of Big Top’s fabric structures is their mobile design. Unlike permanent buildings, our shelters can be moved around the jobsite or relocated to a different site. We can design one of our portable buildings for mobility in three different ways:
- Crane lifting – The structure can be lifted off its foundation with a crane and moved to a different area on your worksite.
- Crane rails – A rail system can be installed to easily move the structure along your footprint to allow heavy equipment to be transported in and out of the structure while you fabricate, weld, or paint and blast.
- Telescoping – By using a crane rail, Big Top can design your structure to telescope, providing you the versatility to cover different sections throughout each construction phase. The benefit of this feature is that it allows you to protect your employees and equipment at certain times, and then roll the structure back to its original state, decreasing your footprint.
Plus, our fabric structures can be disassembled, stored, and shipped to different locations altogether. They can then be rebuilt in as little as a few hours. Not only does this offer convenience, but you’ll also benefit from cost savings compared to the resources needed to construct permanent buildings.
Additionally, you can rest assured that your equipment, materials, and staff will be well-protected under one of our portable buildings. That’s because the fabric that we use, which is translucent and allows in plenty of natural sunlight, blocks 99.95 percent of harmful UV-A and UV-B radiation. The fabric is rip-resistant and NFPA701 flame-retardant as recommended by the International Building Code. And, our fabric structures will maintain a comfortable interior climate that is 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outside temperature.
The versatility of Big Top’s fabric structures allows them to be used in numerous ways. For instance, our shelters are used for warehousing and storage, sandblasting and paint containment, and recycling and waste management. They are also regularly used as lunchrooms and safety meeting facilities, hangars and sunshades, and equipment maintenance shelters. And, thanks to their modular design, we’ve created many custom shelters to meet the unique needs of organizations across many different industries.
