The benefits of using Fabric Structures for warehouses and where large structures are needed:
There are a number of factors which make fabric structures a viable option for your warehouse needs or for factory space;
- The structures are very cost competitive.
- They can be relocated economically.
- They can be split into several structures in the future if required.
- Light and compact for lower cost transporting.
- They are a low cost option when developing new markets for bulk products.
- Warehouses can have pallet racking between the side frames so as 100% of the space can be utilised.
Utilising 100% of the footprint in Warehouses:
The large fabric structures for warehouses have the option of including pallet racking between the main posts. This enables 100% of the building footprint to be used productively. The steel in the shed frame doubles as pallet racking supports. This clever design makes the combination of the building and pallet racking a most cost effective solution.
Using fabric structures for commercial aircraft hangars:
Fabric structures are well priced alternatives to traditional hangars with the added option of relocation in the future. In fly-in fly-out mining situations or at remote airports planes will often sit on the runways for long periods during the day between flights. During this time they are likely to be exposed to high levels of UV light, heat and sometimes moisture which will impact on the length of life of the aircraft and the maintenance cost. Given that often these airports may have a limited life due to limited resources in the mine, or change of activities at the destination airport, relocatable structures make a lot of good business sense. The aircraft is protected during flight schedules and the value of the hangar asset can be preserved by being able to relocate it to another location or sell it and transport it easily.
Open ended hangars are available for taxi-in taxi-out situations, or full end walls and multiple staggered doors can seal the hangar against the elements.
Fabric structure for dry docks:
Dry docks can be designed as mobile structures mounted on rails, telescoping or fixed structures that can have open ends, one end open with a full end wall. Full height doors can be provided to give full clearance to the top of the apex at the doorway.
All structures are fully engineered for the prevailing weather conditions and structures are designed to give maximum strength for the most economical use of steel. This is done by the use of bracing and designing the members so as their profile matches the loads imposed.
Full width automated doors are exceptionally strong and will withstand cyclone conditions if required. We ensure that doors Taurus Fabric Build supplies have reliable service back-up and a high level of reliability.
Sports stadiums and horse arenas:
In a world where everyone is time poor and they expect to be able to partake in their or their children’s hobbies or games with a reasonable level of comfort, large fabric structures are meeting these community needs economically.
The gentle dispersed even light which comes through the fabric ensures that there are no shadows during the day. This makes it ideal for horse pavilions or for playing sports.
Depending on the situation the structures can be fully enclosed or have open ends and sides to give full breeze access. Partial end walls can block the occasional inclement weather, and roll down sides or removable panels on some or all of the walls can be used to secure the building in winter if required.
The ability to design the fabric structures to meet the environmental needs ensure energy costs are kept to a minimum.
Extensive outdoor sales areas, open warehouses for your customers:
The natural light of fabric structures during daylight hours creates an enticing environment for the shopping public. The fabric structures give you the ability to have an extensive sales area economically for businesses including garden centres, car and boat sales, hardware and building supplies, farm produce, farm supplies, out door activity equipment etc.
