Fabric Buildings Information for Engineers

Legacy’s innovative fabric buildings are practical and efficient. Our system accounts for factors that impact building soundness, including soil type, fabric tension, and external and drop loads.

The building frames are computer tested for strength and durability. Frames are widened or spaced as needed for structural integrity. All end bays are cross braced and additional bay bracing is added as required.

Legacy Building Solutions was the first to market fabric structures on a rigid steel frame. Our patented system keeps the fabric permanently attached to the frame with biaxial tension. This tension contributes to the resiliency and quality of the building and a wrinkle-free finish — especially at corners and openings.

The Legacy team is dedicated to safety and quality. We use the same time-tested engineering software and principles as traditional building materials. While the fabric may provide additional stability, we consider that an add-on rather than a replacement for structural soundness.

Each building is created to accommodate loads from ancillary systems and building code requirements. Even heavy loads and multiple loads will be safely integrated into the final building design.

Our staff engineer is licensed in multiple states and provinces. In other jurisdictions, a locally licensed engineer stamps all building designs. Computer-aided design allows us to provide clients with 3-D renderings and blueprints to assist in the permit process and depict the completed building.

Fabric buildings can be incorporated into nearly any building system. Our design-build team creates custom structures to meet your needs and the needs of your clients. Contact us now to get more fabric building information for engineers, and learn how we can help meet your unique needs.
