Getting Technical with Fabric Structures 

How to properly design for fabric pressure, proper fabric tensioning and attachment 

Fabric structures encompass a variety of building types – ranging from simple weekend projects to permanent, engineered industrial buildings. Before investing in a fabric structure, it’s critical to understand the design factors that will determine the structure’s longevity and lifecycle cost.

Smart fabric structures for volatile economies white paper

Smart Construction for Volatile Economies

The advantages of Legacy fabric structures

Current economic conditions have created an urgent demand for high-quality industrial structures. Naturally these buildings should make sense economically, but to truly meet users’ needs, they should also be durable, adjustable and fast to construct. Get more information in the white paper.

Key Factors in Fabric Structure Construction

A white paper for making informed fabric structure purchasing decisions

In the past, it would have been unusual to talk about fabric-covered structures and conventional buildings in the same sentence. The stark differences in materials, construction methods and common uses of the buildings themselves made for a truly “apples and oranges” comparison. Now, fabric structure technology has evolved to compete with, and in many cases surpass, traditional construction. Learn more in this white paper.

Advantages of Fabric Structures with Rigid Steel Frames

A white paper dispelling the myths of fabric building design

With continuous improvements in performance, safety and speed of erection, fabric buildings are increasingly on the short-list of preferred building types. Fabric buildings adhere to the same engineering guidelines as other types of structures, and they have advantages that can’t be matched with steel or wood buildings. Download to learn more.

Fabric structures for corrosive environments white paper

Building for High-Corrosive Environments

How Legacy fabric structures outperform

Corrosion is the deterioration of metal caused by the reaction of metal with the environment. The word “corrode” literally means “to gnaw to pieces.” Corrosion occurs in all industries and is caused by humidity, sea air, chemicals, fertilizers, road salt and more. Corrosion significantly increases maintenance costs and shortens the lifespan of industrial buildings. Read the white paper to learn more.
