Lease Your New FastCover

FastCover Grows with Your Business!

When your business, farm or enterprise is growing at a rapid rate, it is generally a result of you, as an entrepreneur, pouring all your energy into that growth. Attempting to determine what the next step is to house all that growth can be a daunting task. Do I add onto my building, do I move to larger facilities, how do I become more efficient, are all questions swirling through your mind. As your business grows, plans change, and you need to be able to shift your thought process just as fast. The beauty of a FastCover portable structure is that it allows you to accommodate the need today and be re-located, added onto, or re-configured to accommodate tomorrow’s needs. At FastCover we grow with your business!

As a family owned privately held business, FastCover understands that cash flow and your passion drives growth and that there is not always an abundance of free cash to renovate, upgrade or purchase / rent new facilities. Leasing a New FastCover can assist you by providing excellent space for light manufacturing and assembly, or storage of raw material, parts, equipment and finished goods. Leasing allows you to budget for a reasonable fixed “no surprises” payment schedule where all payments can be fully expensed by your business, farm or enterprise.

Manitoba Ag Days a Huge Success!

A big Thank You to all those attendees who stopped by the FastCover booth

Manitoba Ag Days held in Brandon, MB is an annual event showcasing new and innovative products and services specifically designed for the Agricultural Sector. It is always well attended, as a no cost entry fee enables the show to draw from a very large surrounding area including other Provinces and States. It was an exceptional show for FastCover with new and existing customers looking at and making commitments to purchase new FastCovers. It is always satisfying to have existing owners of FastCovers bring acquaintances to our booth to talk about their positive experiences with their structures. There is nobody better than FastCover building owners to “sell” the benefits of FastCover ownership to new customers! Our booth was a 20′ wide x 15′ long FastCover fabric building complete with three styles of steel truss arches and the same fabric we use on agricultural and commercial buildings. We can demonstrate the real-life components of our fabric buildings and you can fell the sturdiness of the powder-coated, welded, truss building super-structure.

We are excited as to how the new year is starting with the opportunity to serve the Canadian and upper United States market. FastCover is currently serving clients in the Agricultural, Mining, Commercial/industrial, Oil/Gas, and Commercial Fishing sectors.

New FastCover 50′ & 60′ Wide Straight Leg Super Structure… The SLSS Series

FastCover introduces 2 completely new structures to meet customer demand. The FastCover SLSS series is available in 50′ and 60′ widths, and, of course, unlimited lengths. Both SLSS series FastCovers are available in “Portable” models.The FastCover Straight Leg Super Structure (SLSS) has been designed to maximize the interior volume with a massive 10′ high exterior straight wall truss leg. This feature virtually eliminates wasted interior space by allowing customers to get closer than ever to the interior wall with equipment placement, vehicle storage, or warehouse racking.  The SLSS series is designed for maximum width and height openings on end walls to accommodate more equipment, product or livestock. At 10′ high, the truss leg on the SLSS series easily accommodates side entrances making access to this FastCover significantly easier.

Len Peters, FastCover Auto Cad Draftsperson states, “The portability of the SLSS Series make them one of the most versatile and sought after structures that can be erected almost anywhere, without the need for a costly foundation, due to its ability to be erected on any relatively level surface area when incorporated with our anchoring system.” The beauty of portability allows customers to re-locate FastCover buildings to a location that best suits them. An initial location may no longer be suitable for commercial, mining, farm or ranch enterprises and a re-locatable building allows for FastCover buildings to grow along with the business. Portability also means that when customers no longer have need for their FastCover, re-sale value becomes very important. Great re-sale value comes with a FastCover that has the ability to provide decades of service,

Like all FastCover buildings, the SLSS series is available in a variety of truss spacing to meet the demands of North American snow, rain and wind loads. Powdercoat paint is standard on all FastCovers. Powdercoating is a great rust inhibitor and ensures years of service. All FastCover buildings, big or small, incorporate High Density Polyurethane fabric membrane with UV inhibitors, in 12 oz. weight and 23 mils thickness to provide protection for equipment, product and livestock against the elements.

FastCover used to Protect Overpass Concrete pours on Provincial Hwy Project

FastCover Fabric Structures was awarded the contract for the protection of concrete from the elements during pouring of overpasses for the Province of Manitoba. This project, using Portable Fabric Buildings, is slated for completion October of 2018. The picture shown is the FastCover 65′ wide by 100′ long.

Working with the general contractor Flatiron and the engineering group, FastCover has been able to design and develop structures that are capable of being used for the multitude of widths required for this project. Each FastCover can be reconfigured to change width dependent on the overpass being poured. This concept not only resulted in significant savings for this portion of the project but also increased efficiency in assembly and erection. Increasing or decreasing the widths of these FastCovers only requires the addition or deletion of a small number of steel components and no change to the fabric. These FastCovers range in size from 55′ wide to 100′ wide with a typical length of 100′ long. There is no doubt that these temporary structures are of significant size and require the need for appropriate equipment and trained personnel.

These FastCovers will be erected and disassembled multiple of times over the course of the project and have been designed to do so with ease. FastCover, working closely with the project engineers, has also ensured that all National Building Code requirements have been met to safely work in the structure and handle the site location’s climate loads in and around one of the heaviest concentration of vehicle traffic in Manitoba.

This is just one of many projects FastCover is currently involved in. FastCover is a proud family owned manufacturer and installer of fabric buildings serving the agriculture, industrial, commercial, oil & gas, and mining industries factory direct!  it is a great example of how Portable Fabric Buildings can add value to a commercial construction project.

Low Quality Import building damaged by Wind

If it’s too good to be true… it’s usually too good to be true

The image above is from an imported fabric building located in Alberta, Canada which was damaged by wind.  This is what can happen to a building that is not built from quality components engineered for the North American climate.

Fabric Building Quality is not Too Good to Be True

This headline may have originated back hundreds of years, but it was coined by an evil henchman who worked for an evil newspaper villain who was plotting to overthrow the free world who was ultimately foiled by you know who… Bond, James Bond.

In the Fabric Building industry there is a huge discrepancy in the quality of products being offered in the North American market. More recently, if you have been in the market for a fabric building, you will have noticed a number of distributors claiming to sell quality “Canadian” fabric buildings.  They claim to be designed specifically for North American climates, albeit imported from abroad. These structures are readily available online through kijiji, distributors and auction houses. The challenge we all face as consumers is how to make a good buying decision when we are purchasing something we have never purchased previously. If I know nothing about the automobile industry, why not buy a Ford Pinto vs. a Mercedes Benz 500. It’s less than 1/2 the price and they both get me from Point A to point B. Not that simple! If it’s too good to be true… it generally is too good to be true!

Quality Building Components

There are significant differences in a quality fabric building vs. many of the import products available today. As Benjamin Franklin said, ” The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.” At FastCover we pride ourselves in using quality materials that result in decades of great service from our structures. Using a minimum of 11 – 12 gauge black steel tubing ensures that our Structures are truly strong enough to give you decades of worry free & maintenance free service. We have seen too many poor quality fabric structures collapse after the first heavy snowfall in places like Prince George British Columbia, Sydney Montana or Snow Lake, Manitoba. Powder coating all steel components on every FastCover ensures greater longevity of fabric. Applying and baking several millimeters of paint onto all our steel ensures smoothness where fabric and steel meet.  High density polyethylene fabric is an integral part of FastCover engineered structures.  When properly adhered to one of our quality steel frames, the entire fabric & steel envelope create its ability to withstand North American snow, wind and rain loads as per National and International Building Code. Fabric on many import buildings cannot be tightened “like a drum” because it is not strong enough and can expand and contract in various weather conditions. This fabric is not an integral part of the structure and provides no additional strength.

Stay in touch with our blog section as we will be writing a series of posts on the various components that make a FastCover an excellent choice for your equipment storage, cattle handling, dairy farm, light industrial, machine or maintenance shop. We will look at fabric, hardware, steel, foundation & anchors and warranties.

Quick Tip

You would not buy a new car, truck or combine without a warranty, so make sure you have one on your new fabric building. FastCover’s 15 year warranty has you Covered!
