5 misconceptions about fabric buildings

Many myths and misconceptions surround the construction and use of canvas buildings.

In fact, this type of construction is much more ingenious than many people think, and is used extensively in many sectors.

We’ll help you demystify canvas buildings and better understand why they’re so commonplace these days. In fact, you might even benefit from purchasing one.

#1 Fabric buildings are fragile

It’s easy to see why this idea has become popularized in public belief, but the logic that a canvas building can’t be sustainable is at fault.

A canvas building that is designed and engineered to perform its intended task should have no problem withstanding the weather and other external pressures of the environment in which it is located.

A well-thought-out and well-installed building can easily survive for a very long time in the conditions for which it was built. Snow, wind, rain: you can prepare for almost any eventuality.

In fact, Permodome buildings for sale come with a warranty of up to 15 years, proof that we sincerely believe that durability is not an issue.

#2 The agricultural sector is the only one interested

The agricultural sector is obviously one of the places we often associate with canvas buildings, but this application is far from the only one that exists.

In fact, there are a number of different business sectors that benefit from the possible uses of canvas buildings. These include :

  • The equestrian sector
  • The municipal sector
  • The industrial sector
  • The mining sector

Whether for machinery storage, a covered skating rink, an aircraft hangar or a riding arena, this type of building has a veritable catalog of possible uses.

#3 Canvas domes are for temporary installations only

Although there are canvas buildings designed specifically to serve as temporary facilities, this is far from being the only form that exists or representing the primary use.

In fact, it’s possible to use solid steel structures designed to withstand snow, wind and rain over long periods, making it possible to construct a canvas building that can simply be erected and left in place for as long as the owner requires.

What’s more, an insulating fabric keeps the building’s interior dry, even during rainy and cold periods of the year. This means you can keep your materials, crews or citizens dry and warm, whatever the time of year.

#4 No customization possible with these buildings

The versatility of canvas domes would lose some of its charm if they couldn’t be customized to suit your needs.

#5 Service ends when canvas is installed

It would be easy to believe that once the building is erected, the services are concluded and you are now left alone with any problems that may arise.

Like all forms of construction, canvas domes need to be properly maintained if they are to operate at full capacity for as long as possible. What’s more, unforeseen events and accidents can happen, and that’s only to be expected.
