The Fabric Advantage

A fabric structure allows an abundance of natural light in, providing the added benefit of an enjoyable environment, and energy efficiency.

Benefits of Fabric

Natural Light

  • Enjoy the abundance of natural light found in fabric structures.
  • Cooler in the summer,warmer in the winter.
  • Natural light equalsfewer lights installed and powered, lower energy costs.
  • Better building envelope, nearly airtight with no penetrations.

Corrosion Resistance

  • Industrial fabric buildings are rust and corrosion-resistant, especially to paper, salt, fertilizer, sludge, compost and other materials and processes that are harmful to steel.
  • Steel support beams and trusses used in fabric structures are typically hot dip galvanized, which is one of the most effective ways to inhibit rust.
  • Since fabric buildings have no screws or nails that penetrate outside roof and wall surfaces, there are no holes that can leak water and promote rust and corrosion.

Fully Customizable

  • Since fabric buildings have no screws or nails that penetrate outside roof and wall surfaces, there are no holes that can leak water and promote rust and corrosion.
  • Can include offset peaks, varying column heights, sidewall dormers, lean-tos, and mono-slope roofs.
  • Straight sidewalls allow you to utilize every available square foot.

Relocatable

  • Fabric buildings are engineered to be permanent yet may easily be ported or relocated.

Superior Strength

  • Rigid frame engineering can account for additional loads to be placed on the structure, such as conveyors, cranes or fire suppression systems.
  • The rigid frame is engineered to meet or exceed local codes related to wind, snow and seismic activity.

Installation and Maintenance

  • Fabric buildings are installed quickly, for a faster return on your investment.
  • Minimal maintenance requirements.
  • Single Source engineering, manufacturing, and installation.

Tension Fabric

Energy Efficiency

Fabric roofs offer up to 12% translucency, which allows natural light to permeate the structure and eliminate the need for artificial lighting during the day, significantly reducing illumination energy costs.

  • Enough foot-candle illumination is provided during daylight hours to significantly exceed the recommended guideline of 75 to 100 foot-candles.
  • When translucent fabrics are used to introduce daylight, they provide an environmental connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • Skylights and solar panels can be incorporated in the design of fabric buildings.
