Section 1: Benefits of outside fabric structures

Outdoor fabric structures are made of several different materials such as lightweight composite boards, polycarbonate plastic, a combination of these two or even pvc fabric.

They are completely weatherproof and waterproof with one-year warranties on some structures, such as the previously mentioned wind barrier.

They also meet an ASTM standard for fire suppression and are insulated with a quality fire-resistant material.

They are often described as being indestructible.

An outdoor fabric structure can be customized in accordance with your design and desired structure height.

They are particularly great if you need the extra space and are limited on available floor space, or need to access the building from the outside.

What is an outdoor fabric structure?

An outdoor fabric structure is constructed with sheet metal which is then covered in a fabric. This technique is commonly called “panelized manufacturing.” It is the next generation of factory-built structures.

This technique is unique, economical, quick and efficient. Sheet metal is easily constructed from all the widely available materials. Your existing structures will be used up. This method produces building large, faster and with the highest quality finish. Most structures are finished with a clear coat or paint finish.

Builders typically only have to make a small run of metal panels for a specific project.

Why choose an outdoor fabric structure?

Convenient and Cost-effective – A building designed from an extremely robust outdoor fabric structure offers extreme insulation characteristics. This makes the structure a strong choice for heat retention in remote locations, on-farm storage, and for outdoor equipment storage.

Adaptable – Being outside makes structures built from an outdoor fabric structure easily adaptable to any temperature range, and the structure itself can be easily installed and removed. The structures we manufacture are manufactured to perform in high winds, torrential rains, and varying weather conditions.

Eco-friendly – Durable, clean, and renewable, an outdoor fabric structure is a great option for those who desire a green business.

What Can You Build with Fabric Structures?

1. Airplane hangars

Airplane hangars are perfect for storage of any kind of plane with extended wingspans.

These hangars are not only safe and secure, they provide a quiet working area in which your aircraft can be secured and ready to work while safely stored in the hangar.

2. Ball games and entertainment facilities

Cribbage tables are a fantastic hang-out spot for older people, whereas Skee-Ball and laser tag give adults a new social experience.

A new trend in this space is incorporating large LED screen technology with fabric building. The advanced screen technology could be integrated into the fabric itself.


Buildings for other uses

Brick structures are often the go-to building in rural or semi-rural areas. As brick is an extremely high-value building material, much of it is available surplus from other construction projects. With an ability to withstand almost anything that nature can throw at them, brick structures are ideal for storing various types of materials.

This is what type of building our fabric structures are used for. Many of the popular suppliers also offer a variety of items used to make the bricks.

Stone structures are plentiful in both recycled and cut stone. While these structures can be purchased by the piece, they can also be built by the homeowner, using traditional masonry techniques.

Metal structures are abundant in the US, and easy to transport.
