What Are the Four Functions of a Temporary Enclosure?

Here at Big Top Manufacturing, we work hard to show you just how durable and versatile our temporary enclosures can be. Our frames are made of tough galvanized steel as opposed to aluminum beams. Our fabric membrane is made of tear-resistant PVC vinyl and blocks 99.5 percent of UVA and UVB rays. The enclosures can be fully customized to suit your needs and transported from job site to job site. However, to truly show you just how beneficial they can be for any jobsite, we need to go back to basics and take a look at the four main functions of a temporary enclosure.

Storage: When, Where, and How

When we talk about something’s function, we refer to the purpose of its design. Needless to say, the primary function of a temporary enclosure is to store machinery, materials, and goods. Our temporary enclosures give you the space and environment to store what’s important and provide cover for your job site. What sets temporary enclosures apart, however, is that they can be lifted and moved to follow you from one job site to the next without having to rebuild the entire structure.

Protection and Peace of Mind

While many temporary construction enclosures are open-air, they can also be completely sealed with hydraulic powers or winch-mobilized doors. This means you can ensure the stored equipment is safe no matter where you are. As a bonus, you can completely control the interior of the climate. So, if your items are temperature sensitive or require certain humidity levels, the environment stays regulated to meet your specifications.

The Luxury of Convenience

Although it certainly feels like a luxury, convenience is more of a financial necessity when it comes to storage solutions. Having to wait for and transport goods when you could have them right at your fingertips saves money, plain and simple. The more time you spend waiting for materials, the longer the project takes, and the more you have to pay for labor costs. However, storing what you need at the job site will make a world of difference.

Safeguard Valuables From Inclement Weather

As mentioned, the tent fabric used in our structures is made of PVC-vinyl, which is tear-resistant and flame-retardant. On top of that, our engineers design all our enclosures to be able to handle various structural loads, including dead loads, live loads, and wind and snow loads. This means you can ensure your valuables and your job site are always safe and protected no matter where you’re located.
