Choose GTX for Great Designs

The Alaska Structures GTX Series building system is available in hundreds of sizes and configurations. You can choose options such as proprietary insulation systems, HVAC systems, and lighting and electrical systems. You can add a wide variety of door options to maximize the usefulness of your GTX Series building.

At Alaska Structures, we engineer and design all of our fabric buildings for fast assembly and disassembly, making them the most portable fabric tension structures on the market. We can also provide expert project managers to guide you during the quick installation of a GTX Series building that can be up to 150 feet (45.72m) wide and any length.

Our GTX Series truss support system is easily expandable to grow with your needs, and the long field-life of every Alaska Structures fabric structure ensures decades of safe use. GTX Series buildings can also be designed with a rail-based roller and track system that can be securely anchored to ISO containers, dry docks, roadways, or any level surface. We offer automated and manpowered versions of this system.

At Alaska Structures, we subject all of our engineering to third-party testing. GTX Series fabric structures can be designed to meet local building codes, and they can be installed with less site preparation than structures made of wood, steel, brick and mortar and other traditional construction materials.
