With the cost of labor and building materials on the rise, opening a sports facility in a traditional brick-and-mortar building is slowly becoming less and less of an option. Business owners are now looking for more cost-effective building solutions, but what alternatives can meet the same requirements and rise to the challenges that brick-and-mortar buildings can? If you’re looking for a cost-effective, durable structure, see why tension fabric buildings make great sporting facilities.

Weather Resistance

The beauty of every indoor sports facility is that athletes can play and practice throughout the year without worrying about the weather. However, for some, the idea of relying on a tension fabric building to stand up to the weather can be a concerning one. But our fabric buildings are much more than a piece of fabric on top of a flimsy frame. We make our structures out of galvanized steel. Plus, we craft our fabric membrane out of tear- and flame-resistant vinyl. And when we design your structure, we consider your area’s typical building loads, climate, and building codes.

Clear Span Interior

Your traditional brick-and-mortar building requires interior walls and pillars that take up space and don’t allow you to use the full interior. Our fabric structures don’t require these internal support pillars, so you can use all the interior space and get the most out of your money. This way, you can place various courts, pools, equipment, and bleachers in one space and arrange everything exactly as you want. Our structures can also come in various heights, with a maximum height of 72 feet, making them great for diving facilities.

Easy Customization

At Big Top, we understand that your sports facility needs to be more than just four walls. That’s why we offer an array of installations that will perfect it. You can add an HVAC system, lighting, a solar system, lightning protection, and more. Plus, we can create a stable surface over various foundations. So when you’re ready to install your court, you can easily do so. We can also customize the outside of your fabric building with your brand’s logo or colors to further personalize your facility.

Energy Efficiency

When opening your own sports facility, budgeting and saving money is a must. Our tension fabric buildings can help you save money on electricity with our vinyl membrane. The material allows natural daylight to flood the interior, so you only have to use your lights at night. Plus, our structures naturally keep the interior warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, so you don’t need to use your HVAC system as heavily. Tension fabric buildings don’t just make great sports facilities because they save you money; they also help you open a more sustainable, eco-friendly business.
