Don’t let the word “temporary” fool you—a well-maintained temporary structure can last for years. It’s much more than a flimsy structure. Temporary fabric structures can provide years of service, regardless of model or application, so that you can get the most out of your investment. If you’re looking to capitalize on the benefits of temporary buildings, let’s look at the different types and determine the best one for your application.

Container-Mounted Structures

Container-mounted structures are among the most cost-effective storage solutions. Shipping containers anchor the fabric membrane and add height. You can use the shipping containers for storage, office space, lunch rooms, or all of the above! If you need to store or move your structure, you can disassemble the tent, put it in one of the shipping containers, and move it to your next job site.

Warehouse Tents

When most people think of temporary structures, they think of warehouses. Fabric buildings don’t require pillars for structural stability, which means the interior is entirely free. You can choose from a variety of add-ons and installations to ensure the interior is perfect for whatever you’re storing. For example, you can add insulation, HVAC systems, and heaters if you need a temperature-controlled warehouse.

Hangars and Sunshades

Hangars and sunshades are much cheaper alternatives to expensive airplane hangars—they provide the same durability and protection. The best part is you can disassemble and transport fabric hangars and sunshades to a different location. It’s also much easier to anchor a fabric structure to a foundation, unlike metal hangars. If you need to erect and anchor your structure in a pinch, you can do so on dirt, wood piling, and asphalt.

Medical Tents

Aside from their industrial applications, medical and disaster relief tents are among the most common types of temporary building structures. They’re fast and easy to erect, and you can keep disaster victims safe and comfortable. Volunteers know how important it is to provide victims with comforts, even something as simple as a cool, comfortable, dry room to sleep in. Medical temporary structures are much more than a set of four walls and a roof. Our designs keep people in mind so disaster victims and volunteers don’t suffer in uncomfortable conditions. Instead, they can focus on healing and rebuilding.
