Energy-Efficient Fabric Buildings

WeatherPort® high-quality, tensioned fabric structures from Alaska Structures® set the standard for energy efficiency in fabric membrane structures . You can expect significant reductions in your monthly energy expenses thanks to their innovative engineering.

With one single building, you’ll cut down on your heating, cooling and lighting expenses that quickly empty your wallet. In some cases, you can even earn tax breaks or rebates for running an energy-efficient building.

Our secure, energy-efficient fabric buildings also require minimal site preparation and foundational requirements. They take only days to weeks to safely assemble and install rather than months or years like traditional buildings.

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.

Versatile Fabric Buildings for All Your Needs

WeatherPort’s energy-efficient fabric buildings 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. The high level durability of our structures will quickly prove that you made the right decision in the long term. 

WeatherPort is the ideal choice for your structure needs. Here’s how we’ll help you save money and time

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 are usually:

  • 15°F cooler than exterior temperatures in the summer
  • 15°F warmer than exterior temperatures in the winter.

Quality Insulation

When you add proprietary EnerLayer® and SuperLayer® insulation, you can save even more money while simultaneously 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.

Adding WeatherPort insulation helps you achieve greater energy efficiency

Efficient Lighting Systems

WeatherPort designers will 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 while reducing daytime electricity use.

HVAC Options

Alaska Structures® offers a wide range of product options to keep more of your hard-earned cash where it belongs — with you! Consider our energy efficient 16 KW heater, Alaska ECU® or HVAC system for further savings.

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