Energy-Efficient Fabric Buildings

WeatherPort® high-quality tensioned fabric structures from Alaska Structures® offer many benefits. We design fabric buildings that set the standard for energy efficiency in fabric membrane structures and can be safely and securely erected in days or weeks, not months or years. 

Our quality products reduce monthly expenses because they are engineered to be innovative, energy-efficient buildings. By adding one, you’ll cut down on heating, cooling, and lighting expenses that could quickly empty your wallet. In some cases, you could even earn tax breaks or rebates for running an energy-efficient building.

WeatherPort fabric structures are easy to install because they require minimal site preparation and foundations quickly.

Retrofitting an existing structure for better energy efficiency is one option. Building a new metal, wood or brick-and-mortar structure is another choice. Both of these courses of action can be expensive and time-consuming.

WeatherPort structures are great for a wide variety of industries and facilities, including:

With a shorter construction schedule, you’ll save time and money in the short term, and the high quality of durability of our structures will prove that you made the right decision in the long term. 

Here’s exactly how WeatherPort can save you money and time while being the best choice for your structure.

Durable and Energy Conserving Roofs

Our PVC fabric roofs offer high solar reflectance and high thermal emittance, and their transparency allows for natural light. Those technical properties alone can lead to less energy use when heating, cooling or lighting a fabric building. Unlike metal roof systems, our roofs don’t corrode—and no corrosion means no leaks or drafts from rust holes.

Controlled Temperatures

WeatherPort fabric structures are excellent at maintaining mild temperatures in a wide range of environments. Even without HVAC and ventilation systems, fabric buildings maintain interior temperatures that usually are 15°F cooler than exterior temperatures in the summer and 15°F warmer than exterior temperatures in the winter.

Quality Insulation Possibilities

When you add proprietary EnerLayer® and SuperLayer® insulation, you can save even more money while at the same time-saving energy. As with traditional metal, wood or brick-and-mortar buildings, you can add any R-value insulation you desire to your WeatherPort structure to customize it to your liking.

Efficient Lighting Systems

WeatherPort designers can create a plan to accommodate energy-efficient lighting systems, including occupancy sensors to ensure that you’re not illuminating an empty room. We can also add skylights to let in more natural light and cut down on daytime electricity use.

HVAC Options

Adding an energy efficient 16 kW heater, Alaska ECU® or HVAC system from a wide range of Alaska Structures® product options is another way to keep more of your hard-earned cash where it belongs—with you!

From indoor sports facilities to garages, or camps systems for outfitters to workshops, most if not all of these energy-saving options and benefits are available in each of our pre-designed building plans.
