Features & Benefits

The ClearSpan Advantage
The ClearSpan Advantage - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Coined as “Buildings of 1,000 Uses”, ClearSpan's tension fabric structures are made from triple-galvanized, structural steel tubing for the trusses and 12.5 oz., high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fabric for the cover. Manufactured with a unique, rip-stop weave, the fabric is also infused with UV-inhibitors, providing a comfortable working environment in all seasons. Also available in flame-retardant fabric, the material is light permeable, producing abundant natural daytime lighting, significantly reducing your daytime utility costs. With an industry-leading warranty of 50 years on the frame and 20 years on the cover, you can enjoy your fabric structure from ClearSpan for years to come.

Permanent or Temporary
Permanent or Temporary - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

The unique design of ClearSpan buildings allows them to be permanent or temporary, especially in the oil and gas sector. In an industry that calls for demobilization from site to site, no other building is easier to disassemble and relocate, all while maintaining its durability and integrity, like a fabric structure from ClearSpan.

Versatile Installation

Other rapid and economical installation options include blocks, piers and containers – even on the most extreme and uneven surfaces – providing added height and significantly more
usable space.

Ours versus Theirs

ClearSpan Industrial Building - ClearSpan Fabric Structures
Traditional Industrial Building Building - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Easy to Relocate and Expand

If your site changes, your building can be relocated; if you need more space, you can easily expand your industrial building.

Permanent and inflexible. Cannot be relocated, eventually needs to be destroyed and disposed of; costly and time consuming to add on to.

Fast Construction

Can easily build up to 5,000 sq. ft. in a day, which results in lower construction costs and shorter timelines.

Our HD and Turnkey Buildings, pre-designed and low in cost per square foot, are on-hand for fast delivery.

Long construction timelines raise costs. It may take months for a building to be completed.

Abundant Natural Lighting

Light permeable fabric covers provide superior natural lighting, significantly reducing utility costs.

Dark, traditional buildings require supplemental lighting, day or night, increasing electrical costs.

Maximum Usable Space

No interior support posts mean equipment and vehicles can maneuver with ease, while also providing a large storage space.

Support posts and beams limit usable space and may make manuevering equipment and storing materials more difficult.

Minimal Foundation Requirements

Can be built directly on the ground, eliminating the high cost of a concrete foundation and expanding the number of locations where buildings can be used.

Concrete footings and foundations can more than double costs and lengthen construction time, while limiting the locations where buildings can be used.
