Fabric Storage Buildings

Why Fabric Buildings?

Back in the day choices of building materials were limited, while barns and metal storage buildings took a long time. Not to mention the associated costs of labor and downtime. Today, fabric storage buildings, often referred to as coverall, Clear span or hoop buildings, offer proven advantages over traditional metal storage buildings.

Whether it’s a temporary or permanent storage building that you need, Britespan fabric buildings are extremely versatile. They go up quickly in full compliance with local building ordinances and are easy to maintain. Further, our fabric buildings won’t corrode like metal buildings or rot like wood ones.

They are ideal for farm buildings and large commercial and municipal buildings because they’re naturally bright inside, cooler in summer and warmer in winter, and easy to maneuver heavy equipment. Our clear span designs give maximum storage space for endless products from salt and sand to equipment, commodities and waste and recycling.
