A temporary warehouse building can be useful in many situations. In fact, many contractors, business owners, and organization leaders and administrators can use tensioned fabric warehouse buildings to save time, money, and difficulty, and they do not even know it.

The first thing many people do not realize is that a temporary warehouse building does not have to only be so temporary. These same kinds of structures are used by sports teams, aviation facilities, and even the military for use as more semi-permanent enclosures.

A Tensioned Fabric Structure (TFS) does more than just protect your equipment or inventory from the elements. It also helps you make maximum use of limited space, save time and money, and even create a temperature-controlled environment when equipped properly.

Protection and Environmental Control

It is obvious that a TFS will provide protection from the weather. However, what many people do not know is that you can even create a controlled environment with one.

Because this durable fabric is stretched both vertically and horizontally, it creates a climate-resistant seal with the T6061 aluminum frame. You can then control the internal environment via HVAC, removable insulation, and louvre systems.

Exhaust fans and closable vents are also available. Since TFS structures are modular, you can have as many, or as few, vents wherever they are needed. Flexibility is the key word here.

A Temporary Warehouse Building can be Set Up Nearly Anywhere

Because of its sturdy, yet lightweight aluminum frame, a temporary warehouse building can be set up just about anywhere, including uneven ground.

Weather is generally not a deterrent to a temporary warehouse building. The 29 oz. fabric is PVC-coated, UV-resistant, and approved by the state of California as fire resistant. It is rated for temperatures from -22* to 160* Fahrenheit. These structures are also designed to slough off snow and handle heavy wind loads.

The clear span shape and design of these structures plays an important role here as well. So does the strength of the T6061 aluminum frame, it is stronger by weight than steel.

Fabric Structures Save Time & Money

The ability to construct a TFS on an uneven surface means that usually no foundation is necessary in order to set up a temporary warehouse building. This can save significant expense. It can also save a great deal of time.

For many reasons, fabric buildings set up very quickly in comparison to structures that are more traditional. On average, it only takes one trained technician supervisor working with a site crew to raise 10,000 square feet of structure per day.

By the same token, a temporary warehouse building is also easier to deconstruct and clean up once the contract is finished. Not to mention, a TFS footprint is very small, typically no land needs to be broken up or rearranged in order to set up the structure.

How Tensioned Fabric Structures Take Limited Storage Space and Multiply Its Volume

When you have limited square footage, a temporary warehouse building will provide the most storage space for the least amount of money. How does this work?

Allsite temporary warehouse buildings can reach up to 54’ tall. This allows anyone to take limited square footage and multiply their storage space by going vertical. They also offer almost unlimited vertical designs. Compared to more traditional facilities, it is much quicker, easier, and less expensive to do so.

Once the storage space is no longer needed, the warehouse can be moved to a new location or returned as a rental. Those who own their own temporary storage structures find it easy to disassemble their buildings, “fold” them up, and store them safely until they are needed again.

Temporary warehouse buildings can be used in a variety of situations. They are able to withstand almost any extreme of heat or cold. They are airtight enough to provide adequate environmental control for almost any project or situation, and they can take limited square footage and multiply it.

Most importantly, a temporary warehouse building saves time and money, and is easy to bring in on any project. Complete our Contact Form to find out more.
