Alaska Structures fabric buildings and camp systems for mineral exploration offer American-made quality. Our architectural support systems provide incredible strength through galvanized steel or aluminum frames. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) fabrics resist tearing, flapping and failure in extreme conditions.


Choose from hundreds of options in Alaska Structures’ extensive catalogue of field-tested fabric structures. Work with our designers to create mineral exploration structures uniquely suited to your needs. Add custom door and window packages, HVAC systems and environmental control units. Select a PVC fabric that is translucent to allow in natural light or opaque to block the sun’s rays. Pick a design to accommodate energy-saving proprietary insulation to any R-value of thermal resistance.
