Fabric Structures and Temporary Warehouse Technical Specification
Fabric Structures-USA uses only the highest- quality and strength PVC material for our fabric structures, unlike some of our competitors. For the past 25 years we have only used American-made materials to build permanent / temporary structures to exceed our customers’ needs and specifications. Each tensioned fabric structure is constructed from some of the finest architectural fabrics available and meet or exceed NAFPA 701 (large & small scale) and California Fire Marshall requirements. Seams on every fabric structure are radio frequency welded not hot air seamed like you find with many of the low end shelters on the market.
The different weight of PVC materials we use also allows you to choose the right material for your needs. The lightest weight fabric we offer is up to twice has heavy as some of our competitors’ upgraded fabric. Our white translucent 18 oz. PVC is the entry level fabric of choice because it will allow enough light to perform most jobs during daylight hours without the use of electric lights. If you need a heavier, more durable material for your fabric structure, then choose the 22 oz. PVC material. 28 oz. coated PVC fabric is the ultimate architectural fabric. It is the standard fabric on spans of 159 or more. No matter what our customer needs, we will get what they want and build the right tensioned fabric structure.
18 oz. PVC
This material is in inventory in translucent white, opaque white, opaque green, and opaque tan. Translucent white allows a warm glow of light into the shelter. Opaque blocks all light from passing through the membrane (the fabric in the upper right on this page is opaque white).
