The GBX Series of gable buildings range from 8 feet to 30 feet wide and any length, can be configured to create field offices, storage buildings and garages. The HGX Series is available in the same sizes as the GBX with a more robust heavy gable construction, perfect for areas that experience high winds or heavy snow loads. The GTX Series of gable truss buildings are Alaska Structures’ largest fabric building and can be custom built to 150 feet wide, to any height, and to any length. The GTX Series of fabric buildings are ideally suited for on-site warehousing, equipment storage facilities and large workshops.

Alaska Structures created the quonset-style MTX Series specifically for maintenance building applications. MTX buildings are 40 feet wide and come in standard 40-foot and 80-foot lengths with others available upon request. The single-arch design of the MTX Series allows it to be easily transported and setup from one job site to the next.

Alaska Structures public works buildings are ideal for hundreds of uses, including:

Alaska Structures uses proprietary fabric membranes and high-strength galvanized steel or high-strength aluminum frame systems in all of its durable shelters. Our long-lasting membrane systems offer a greater longevity and abrasion resistance than other materials. Fabric tension structures are easier to install than metal, wood or brick-and-mortar buildings. Alaska Structures' fabric structures also require less site preparation, offer quicker build times and reduce construction costs.
