FastCovers are quickly becoming a highly sought after farm equipment structure for their overall value. The have the ability to protect your cattle, horses, equipment and commodities from the harsh elements of North America.

Affordable Canvas Storage Structures

As one client states, the ROI on his FastCover is less than 3 years. The structure has significantly reduced the deterioration of tires, hoses and paint. Protection with your FastCover significantly reduces the damage caused by snow, wind, rain and sun. The UV inhibitors incorporated into the fabric ensure that your “well-used” equipment remains in good condition for many more years and your brand new equipment remains immaculate.

Keep Your Cows Warm in Winter during Calving Season

Fabric covered livestock buildings help keep your cows warm and cope with cold weather. A FastCover is a great solution for keeping your cattle warmer in winter time – especially during calving season.

Protect Cattle From Weather Extremes

A FastCover is becoming essential in the Northern climates and throughout North America as a result of volatile weather patterns. Keeping your cattle out of the elements may ensure a higher birth rate. When you reduce the cold stress in cows, newborns have a greater opportunity for survival in climates with extreme conditions.

Winter housing livestock buildings for your cattle: FastCovers can act as a loafing area where your cattle can calve anywhere in the structure or in the event you wish to segregate newborn calves and brood cows, corral pens can be erected inside.

Multi-Use Fabric Covered Buildings

FastCover portable buildings can be easily relocated to serve as a covered building for farm equipment storage, hay storage, grain storage or any other use.

Cattle Handling Facilities With Added Safety

Let’s not forget about you, the Farmer or Rancher, who has to endure these extreme weather conditions along with your livestock. Our naturally lit structures are the ideal winter cattle shelter for calving season – improving animal welfare while keeping those working with you and your herd safe.

Think back to the last time you were calving in 30 below weather, a foot of snow, or ankle deep muck. Cattle, as you know, generate a significant amount of heat that is retained by the FastCover making calving much more tolerable, possibly even enjoyable.

FastCover is a leading fabric building Manufacturer in Manitoba, producing fabric buildings that survive and thrive in North America. To get more information on your new FastCover for cattle handling and calving call us today 1-866-657-7172 or request a quote online.

Portable Farm Equipment Storage Buildings

Interview with Neil Fast about the FastCover Portable Farm Equipment Storage Buildings.

Hi Neil, earlier today we were talking about your Portable Fabric Covered Buildings, and how they might be an ideal solution for farm equipment storage.

Neil – We have two great portable truss structures. And for the agricultural community, Fastcovers are a great option because they give you maximum square footage to store your farm equipment with the portability in the event that you ever wished to move it to a different site on your farm, you certainly can do that because of the way the building was designed.

Many of our ag customers not only use it for farm equipment storage, but for cattle handling to keep their cattle out of the weather – especially during times of calving.

When you talk about being in a flood plain, the building certainly can be moved out of harms way in the event that it needs to be moved to higher ground.


Typical Farm Uses For Fabric Covered Buildings


Question:

How long does it take to disassemble a building and put it back up in a different location?

Answer:

If you did a partial disassemble, you certainly could do that in a day or two. Many of our ag customers have what is known as ‘The MacGyver Influence’, and they put plates under the building; either 2×4 or 2×6 steel skids, and they use farm equipment to drag fully structured buildings to different locations, depending on their needs. They have become quite creative and the Fastcover buildings certainly has the ability to withstand that sort of activity.


Easy Assembly Farm Equipment Storage Buildings

FastCover structures are pre-engineered and are modular in design. No heavy equipment required and no permanent foundation needed. Rapid installation, ease of relocation or extension, and lower operational costs make the FastCover structure the preferred choice of customers, no matter what it is used for!

  • Farm equipment storage buildings
  • Car and truck storage garage
  • Compost storage building
  • Fertilizer storage structure
  • Temporary grain storage building
  • Fabric covered hay storage barn

Question:

Do you have different door options for different sized equipment?

Answer:

Yes, we have a number of different door options for fabric covered buildings. Generally the most economical type of door would be a fabric roll up door. You can probably do 15′ wide by 16′ high door, which is economical, but not necessarily practical if you are moving your equipment in and out on a regular basis.

We offer a steel re-enforced fabric door in a multitude of sizes to fit seeders, threshers, combine headers and other equipment to fit the users needs. The steel re-enforced fabric doors are slightly more expensive – still a good value, and certainly make it easier for regular use.

Although Fastcover is not in the commercial door business, we have 3rd party connections where we can assist a customer if they wish to put in a steel overhead, a roll up door, a commercial door, a bi-fold door… In those instances we generally match our customer with one of our suppliers so they can purchase directly. That adds greater value to the equation of buying a Fastcover.

Congratulations to the livestock show and rodeo champions and we certainly thank all attendees that stopped by our booth. FastCover even did a little bit of rodeo ?clowning? around at the show!

Industrial Vehicle Storage Building

Structures for Storage

Our Client purchased a significant number FastCover Fabric Structures for various locations to store salt, sand and large snow clearing equipment for the Province of Alberta, Canada. Working with the Client, it was determined that the size of buildings would range from 30 feet to 72 feet wide and up to 230 feet in length.

The structures for storage of sand and salt were completely epoxy coated which provides tremendous extended life to steel in facilities that are prone to high corrosion. Although epoxy coating adds initial cost to FastCover Structures, that incremental cost is minute compared to cost to replace any steel components due to premature corrosion. With Safety being paramount to our Client, epoxy coating ensured the Client was confident in the durability of the engineered structures.

The Equipment storage buildings required a completely different specification. The Client required an enclosed storage area to thaw equipment during down time, allowing them to keep equipment clean, reduce the opportunity for rust, all while providing an environment where maintenance and repairs can be done on their equipment. Each FastCover Fabric Structure was lined with an interior insulator to create a barrier resulting in reduced heat loss. This enabled the Client to install radiant heaters making the structure usable for maintenance and repair. These structures are also fully electrified allowing for the use of power tools and plugging in snow clearing equipment which ultimately extends their life.

FastCover fabric buildings were the ideal solution for this customer to install several buildings efficiently with the option of them being moved and/or quickly taken down on a temporary site compared to traditional buildings.

Another successful FastCover project. For more information on how FastCover can assist with your project please contact us online or call 1-866-657-7172
