Fabric Structure for Optimal Boat Storage
If you own a private boat or you have boats in your fleet that are not used on a daily basis, they are best protected in an enclosed shelter. However, traditional dock buildings and dry-dock buildings are expensive to construct and maintain – and it’s even more pricey to rent boat protection during seasons of non-use.
The affordability and quality of marine fabric buildings from Big Top Manufacturing make them the perfect solution for anyone who requires covered or enclosed boat storage.
Maximize Storage Space with Fabric Building Boat Enclosures
Boat storage buildings from Big Top are the product of years of testing and research. Each building is designed to maximize usable space without compromising structural integrity and durability. The side walls are high enough to accommodate nearly any type of boat or yacht, and the arched or peaked ceilings provide even greater height away from the walls.
The ends of these fabric buildings can be left open, or customized end walls can be installed. End walls may be completely closed, include small doors for personnel or consist of large, bay doors for boats to enter and exit. Your design and manufacturing options with us are endless, and our experienced team can help you design the fabric structures you need regardless of your boat or fleet storage needs.
Big Top structures use self-supporting frames that do not require low beams or columns. This creates a single, large space so that boats can be arranged in a variety of ways while leaving enough room for maneuvering or maintenance work.
Those who require marine fabric structures with multiple rooms or compartments will also be satisfied with Big Top buildings. Dividers can be placed inside the structures, or multiple modules can be combined to create separate compartments or rooms. Roof sections can also be installed on a rail system so that certain areas can be accessed by crane without having to expose the other sections.
Fabric Structure Proven Durability
Big Top fabric buildings for boat storage are uniquely designed with steel frames covered in taut fabric. The frames are comprised of galvanized steel tubes that are coated in zinc to prevent corrosion. The hollow tubes make the frame light, which is helpful during installation or when moving the structure.
Several choices are available for the fabric that covers the frame, but most Big Top customers prefer heavy, white PVC. The strongest PVC available from Big Top is rated to last for up to 20 years, and completed structures have been known to withstand winds of up to 100 mph.
In marine conditions, we understand moisture is a concern, and we can help customize and accessorize your building – with proper ventilation and fabric density, for example – to protect against this element.
The fabric used for our boat-storage buildings allows ambient light to filter through, which reduces the need for electrical lighting. However, the buildings are strong enough to support full lighting systems if needed.
Our designs and fabric help maintain internal conditions, ideally saving you money on energy costs, as well.
Simple Installation of Big Top’s Fabric Shelters
Boat storage fabric buildings from Big Top Manufacturing do not require much in the way of a foundation. They can be installed on virtually any surface while staying compliant with international and local building codes. When a building is no longer needed, it can be easily disassembled and safely stored for years. It can also be relocated in a single day without having to be disassembled if crane or rail mobility is incorporated into its design.
