Fabric Buildings By Alaska Structures

  • Application specific design - Alaska Structures’ fabric buildings can be customized to meet your needs, no matter the size or intended application of your building requirement.
  • Worldwide delivery and support - our fabric buildings are used in more than 85 countries.
  • Technical expertise - Over 65,000 engineered fabric structures from Alaska Structures have been constructed around the world. Our 40+ years of proven expertise designing and manufacturing fabric structures cannot be matched.
  • In-house engineering and design teams ensure safety and compliance with local or international building codes.
  • High-strength architectural membranes are polymer-based thermoplastics and used for all of our engineered fabric buildings. Compared to polyethylene (PE) fabric covers used by other companies, our architectural membranes provide a greater abrasion resistance, will not rot, are mold and mildew resistant, have been laboratory and field-tested to -80˚F to +130˚F, are UV stabilized for prolonged sun exposure, and exceed the fire safety requirements outlined in the California Code of Regulations for membrane structures.
  • An optional electrostatically applied powder coat (available in a large selection of colors) provides an added level of protection from rust, salt air, oxidation, humidity, and other environmental factors. Powder coating is available for both our aluminum and galvanized steel frame systems.
  • Open span building design - provides an unobstructed interior up to 150' wide, to any height or length.
  • Energy-efficient design helps to reduce heating and cooling costs. Translucent fabric can be used to allow more natural light, reducing power needed to light the structure during the day. Proprietary insulation and HVAC systems can be used to maintain a comfortable interior temperature.
  • Prompt delivery - Alaska Structures' fabric buildings feature low-cube packaging for quick and economical shipping.
  • Minimal foundation requirements allow Alaska Structures’ fabric buildings to be setup with less site preparation than metal buildings, wood-built construction, concrete or tilt-slab buildings, as well as brick-and-mortar structures. Saving both time and pre-construction costs while reducing environmental impact.
  • Optional installation services - performed by or supervised by our highly qualified and experienced building specialists. Ideal for projects with a short construction schedule or first time fabric building owners.
  • Maintenance free - our tension fabric structures, once setup, do not require expensive and ongoing maintenance or upkeep compared to steel buildings, brick-and-mortar, or wood construction.
  • Permanent or portable installations - Alaska Structures’ fabric buildings, by design, can be taken down and easily moved from one location to another. Steel buildings, wood structures and brick-and-mortar constructions are designed to be installed permanently and are not easily moved.
  • Lower life cycle costs. Investing in an Alaska Structures' fabric building is a big decision and one that offers long-term savings. When amortized over the life of the building, the cost of ownership is much less than steel buildings, brick-and-mortar, or wood buildings.
