Using a Joining Strip to link multiple shelters:
A joining strip is the simple solution if you need a large area of covered space, using two or more structures. This gives you the flexibility to split the structures in the future.
To join structures polyethylene or PVC joining strip sections are used. The structures are placed approximately 200 mm apart, allowing room for fabric ends to be secured. The joining strip fabric is approximately 1.2 m to 1.5 m wide with a fabric pocket either side containing a webbing strap. The webbing straps are secured to ratchets mounted on the top of the containers. This enables them to be tensioned firmly against the fabric midway between the frames, ensuring that the joining strip is held firmly against the structure roof fabric.
A joining strip can be used on most of the different types of shelters.
On some of the large shelters that are prone to physical damage, such as truck unloading bays where forklift masts can contact the fabric, multiple roof fabric sections may be used. In the case of major fabric damage, it limits the area of fabric which has to be removed to be repaired.
Using a Joining Strip to seal against an existing building:
Fabric structures can be sealed to existing buildings with a strip of fabric secured to the end frame, passing down under the end flap and back up to the building wall, forming a continuous fabric gutter. The fabric is sealed against the building with aluminium “sail rail” and silicon, stopping the majority of moisture entering the building.
