Addressing Every Possible Construction-Related Need:

Clear span fabric structures from freestanding-building offer convenient solutions for construction sites that need temporary-buildings. Our tension structures can be erected quickly – usually in a matter of hours – and can be secured to just about any foundation, even dirt, gravel, asphalt, concrete, and containers. As construction work progresses, our fabric buildings can be easily moved around the job-site using a crane.

The translucent fabric in our structures lets in natural light, which can save on energy costs, and has been engineered to block 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation for a UPF rating of 2,000 and a conventional rating of 50 plus, ensuring ample protection for your equipment, materials, and crew. This superior UV protection also helps to maintain a comfortable interior temperature that is an average of 15 degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Additionally, our fabric is rip-resistant and NFPA-701 flame-retardant.

The clear span design of Big-tent  fabric structures allows for plenty of space to be used for just about any purpose. For construction sites, our fabric buildings are used for:

Fabric Structures for Sandblasting and Paint Applications for the Oil & Gas Industry. 

A Versatile Design from the Foundation to the Roof

Your fabric shelter from  storage and canopy-Big tent can also be conveniently anchored to ecology blocks or shipping containers. The primary benefit of using these two particular types of foundations is that they allow more height for your building, which can be particularly beneficial for storing large equipment or materials. Shipping containers can also be used as office spaces or additional storage, if needed.




Fabric Structures for the Marine Industry


One of the reasons we’ve had so much success in this industry is the UV-protection that our fabric shelters provide. The fabric that we use has been engineered to block 99.95 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation to protect your equipment and your staff so that they can safely weld and fabricate out of the elements. This also means that the temperature inside one of our shelters will remain cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, creating a comfortable space for maintenance crews and other marine personnel to work.

 Whether you need a simple shade to store-a-boat or a clear span structure to cover a dry dock. Additionally, they have a clear span design to provide an unencumbered space for storage, maintenance, or any other maritime task, and can include a crane rail for telescopic maneuvering, which makes it easy to bring in materials. Our fabric structures are commonly used as:


  • Shipyard support structures
  • Dry dock and graving dock covers
  • Barge and marine enclosures
  • Cargo enclosures
  • Boat storage
  • Sandblasting and painting facilities
  • Warehouses
  • And more

What’s the Best Type of Equipment Shelter for Storage & Maintenance Purposes?


Many industries require the use of heavy equipment out in the field to complete projects. As some examples, construction crews need their equipment at the building site, mining and oil companies must operate wherever the raw materials are located, and even local municipalities may have ongoing operations that involve security or utility vehicles. Leaving all this equipment exposed to the elements can put it at risk – in addition to rain and snow getting it wet, prolonged exposure to the sun can wear out its electronics and cause its paint to fade. Plus, equipment maintenance crews need shelter so that they can perform their duties comfortably and safe from the weather.

The traditional solution is to build a permanent equipment shelter with the idea that it can be reused in the future. However, there are many drawbacks to constructing a permanent building. For instance:

  • It can be costly — Factoring in all the materials that are needed for construction, hiring a contractor to build it, and then maintaining the building, the costs associated with a permanent building can quickly add up.
  • It is permanent — If your operations out in the field have a limited lifespan, it just doesn’t make sense to construct a permanent building – you will either have to try to sell it or demolish it when production is complete.
  • It can be uncomfortable for your staff — Unless you shell out the costs for climate control, the temperatures inside the building can grow very hot or cold, depending on the weather, which can affect employee morale and performance.

Fortunately, there is an alternative type of equipment shelter that erases these drawbacks and, in fact, provides a host of benefits: a fabric structure from BIG+TENT STORAGE+CANOPY.

Why Fabric Structures Are Better Than Permanent Buildings

A fabric storage and maintenance shelter from  COMMERCIAL+STORAGE+TENT   costs far less than constructing a permanent building. It uses fewer materials and doesn’t require a separate contractor we can provide the appropriate training so that your own crew can erect your new equipment shelter. 

Another key benefit of a fabric equipment shelter from TENSIONED+FABRIC+STRUCTURE+BUILDINGS is that it is mobile and can be anchored to nearly any foundation, including ecology blocks and shipping containers. Once your field operations are complete, your building can be disassembled and stored for future use or shipped to another location.
