Solar Powered, Insulated, Heated Fabric Structure

The Client, a prominent Manitoba company in the commercial construction industry required heated storage for their heavy equipment and supplies. Our dealer, a professional reseller and erector of FastCover Structures worked with the Client, to determine size, foundation and insulation requirements to meet their needs.

In this particular instance the FastCover building was designed with trusses in closer proximity to each other to ensure it was structurally sound to not only withstand the Province’s extreme weather but also to ensure rigidity for the installation of insulation materials. The structure has been securely adhered to the concrete block base which provides a sturdy level base, additional height and protection from unwanted contact with the fabric cover.

Although FastCover fabric structures allow for reasonable light to pass through because this unit is insulated that opportunity no longer existed. This FastCover structure incorporates our solar energy which provides ample lighting 24 hours per day. Propane heat was selected to maintain a very comfortable environment in this Province?s harsh environment.

FastCover fabric buildings are the ideal solution for customers in a wide variety of industries, allowing efficient and cost conscious installation with the option of being moved and/or quickly taken down on a temporary site compared to traditional buildings.

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.
