.Mobile Fabric Structures make for flexible work areas:
Mobile fabric structures have a lot of potential when dealing with maintenance on very heavy objects. Items like the backs of mining trucks or dragline buckets typically weigh tens of tons.
The question has to be asked, “Why not have a lay-down area for the equipment to be repaired or hard faced, and move the shelter to the work?” The heavy equipment is move once to the lay down area, and as labour is available the mobile shelter is dragged over the individual pieces.
Shelters are normally anchored to the ground with concrete blocks, relocated when the structure is moved, or by using anchor points in the ground if they are being operated in specific areas.
Mobile fabric structures can be an alternative to a permanent building:
If your business operates on leased land or you are inhibited by council permit requirements, a mobile structure may be the solution you’re looking for. It is not a building requiring permits, but it does allow you to extend you work area considerably, covering the area where the work is taking place.
Mobile fabric structures can be mounted on skids, in-line wheels or pivoting wheels. Sometimes it is more efficient to have a mobile workshop roof which can be moved to where the items to be repaired are.
Mobile fabric structures protect operators in the field and increase productivity:
If your project involves a continuous line of work, such as poly pipe welding and laying or concrete laying, which need to be kept dry, a mobile structure will allow you to protect the operators and materials from the elements.
There is no dismantling required, just towing the mobile structure along as you go. An “A” frame can be supplied to simplify this process.
To secure the structure to the ground, concrete blocks or tie down points are required.
These structures are normally rated to 100kph (60mph) winds and it is recommended that the covers are removed if severe storms are imminent.
Mobile fabric structures for concrete pads:
- For relatively level concrete pads mobile fabric structures with wind down jockey wheels can be used. These are a lower cost option compared to the heavy duty wheels and are practical where the smaller structures can be moved around by hand or a fork lift.
The big mobile fabric structures for shipyards and manufacturers:
For ship yards and large equipment manufacturers large mobile fabric structures can be designed to move on a rail system.
Multi-section units can be designed that slide inside each other as shown in the photo opposite. This reduces the area needed when the structures are in the storage mode plus allows quicker crane access to the whole length of the item being covered.
For equipment installation projects in high rainfall regions, being able to slide a canopy over the work area can have huge benefits to increasing productivity and meeting production deadlines.
