If your outdoor worksite or project requires reliable protection from the weather for your people, equipment or other assets to get the job done, Allsite’s tension fabric structures may provide the perfect all-weather shelter solution. Allsite tension fabric structures are designed for reliable all-weather performance, no matter the climate, location or extreme weather events that may occur. This high quality, durable structures are deployable in locations as diverse as an urban concert venue or a remote mining operation site. They function in climates that range from extreme desert heat to freezing arctic cold to hurricane-force wind events. They are affordable, fast and relocatable, and are designed and built to be a perfect temporary building solution where weather protection is vital to the safety and success of a project, anywhere in the world.
Tension Fabric Arctic Shelters Designed for Extreme Weather Conditions
Tension Fabric Structures (TFS) are made by the stretching of a PVC, or polyethylene, fabric skin over a lightweight, highly-engineered aluminum frame. The fabric is waterproof, and UV resistant, but also admits natural light and can, therefore, create a
spacious and comfortable indoor environment for workers and visitors. An Allsite TFS is constructed with the highest quality materials for durability, achieving a longer lifespan than its competitors.
The highly engineered TFS system is structurally designed for both strength and flexibility that allow it high resistance against almost any type of extreme weather, including heat or cold, strong winds, heavy rain, sleet, snow, ice, or even earthquakes. TFS are designed to meet standard wind loads for most areas, and where conditions warrant, can be fitted to withstand hurricane force winds.
The high grade PVC fabric tensioned across the aluminum frame and the sloped design of the fabric structure allow it to shed snow loads easily, and the structure is fully water tight. The fabric is treated to resist U.V. degradation and damage from mildew, salt and other corrosive materials.
All-Weather Fabric Structures a Solution for Virtually any Site or Terrain
Available in a range of sizes and designs, and customizable to your project requirements, Allsite tension fabric structures can be used in almost any environment, even in remote locations and on difficult terrain. Tension fabric structures do not require a building foundation and can be adapted for almost any type of ground, whether urban concrete and paving, fields of soil or grass, slopes of rock and shingle, or even on boats and ships.
All-weather, lightweight and engineered for quick installation, TFS are easily transported, including to otherwise remote locations. They can be erected, typically in a matter of days after arrival, to serve temporary needs, but are also durable, high strength structures which can remain in place for as long as required.
Highly Cost-Effective and Adaptable Solution to All Weather Shelter Needs
When compared with traditional brick and mortar structures, all-weather tension fabric buildings are extremely economical and rapid to assemble, and for this reason are a preferred solution in a range of industries. Applications that benefit from the qualities of TFS include environmental remediation, where worksites can be contained and protected; military use, for fast deployment in the field for the housing of personnel or equipment, including deployment in difficult locations such as desert and mountainous areas, or as semi-permanent extra storage or training space on military bases; construction and renovation projects, to cover and protect existing buildings from the weather while they are being rebuilt or expanded. Also useful as temporary airplane hangars, these structures can be erected in remote locations to protect parked or stored aircraft from the elements while the aircraft is not in use, preserving the value of the equipment and helping to keep it ready for use when needed. Other uses such as indoor agriculture, indoor sports, tradeshows and other events provide pleasant interior spaces where climate and lighting, as well as ventilation, air filtration, sound and other environmental factors, can be actively controlled at all times, no matter the outdoor conditions.
The technology behind Allsite fabric structures makes these versatile and cost-effective building solutions available for use in a growing range of industries and applications. Their all-weather durability makes them a perfect solution in difficult or unpredictable climates, and they provide valuable cover where weather can impact the success of the project.
