|ADVANTAGES TO OUR ENGINEERED TENSION FABRIC STRUCTURES AND WARRANTY INFORMATION:
Energy Efficient, Natural Light — Sustainable Building Features
Our white fabric covers reduce the need for artificial lighting, lowering your energy consumption. With abundant daytime lighting that is bright and natural, the interior of the structure is an inviting environment that people, plants and animals thrive in. The cover's translucent and reflective qualities also allow for further energy savings by providing indoor temperature stability. Our buildings are climate responsive — they stay cool in the summer and warm in winter.
Due to the unique engineering of our fabric structures, all of the inside space is useable. There are no internal columns or supports to interfere with your interior plans. Offering superior height and clearance when compared to traditional metal or wood buildings, these buildings allow you to utilize as much space as possible for any application.
Fast Delivery — Fast Installation & Fast Savings
Our structures go up quickly — fabric structures are built in less than half the time it takes to construct a traditional wood or steel building. When you need a building fast, we can manufacture it in just a few weeks. The design of our structures means prompt, efficient installation, which saves you money.
Our buildings reduce outside noise and diminish indoor echoing. Sound-absorbing covers and walls provide a peaceful, tranquil environment for people and animals with no harsh sounds of rain or sleet pelting against a roof.
Excellent Air Quality
A fabric structure feels and smells fresh and clean. The natural light cuts down on moisture and bacteria growth, providing an environment that is healthier than more conventional steel and wood buildings. Superior ventilation options, such as roll-up sides, are available.
Highest Quality — Built to Last
Our all-purpose Truss Arch fabric structures are rugged. We use the highest quality steel available — Allied Gatorshield® galvanized steel — to manufacture the most durable frames. With Allied's Flo-Coat® triple-layer process, our frames have unmatched rust and corrosion protection. Fabric covers have a patented weave that is lightweight yet exceptionally strong. Covers are also UVI treated and weather resistant for long-lasting use, and flame retardant material is available. Nova-Shield II™ with ArmorKote™ covers have a 15 year warranty. Our pre-engineered truss arch structures meet all wind and snow load regulations.
Permanent or Temporary
While the high-quality construction of our fabric structures creates a durable, permanent building, the cost-effectiveness of these structures also makes them ideal for use as temporary buildings. They can easily be relocated or taken down whenever your needs change. Unlike wood or metal buildings, our buildings are engineered for versatility, and can easily be added on to if you should require more space.
Barns2Go truss buildings are available in Round and Gothic styles with building sizes available from 20' to 200' wide and in any length desired. We can even engineer customized building sizes. Truly buildings of 1,000 uses, our structures currently function as airplane hangars, alpaca housing, riding arenas, garages, driving range shelters, aviaries, butterfly sanctuaries, salt storage, grain and equipment storage, and more.
Minimal Foundation Requirements
Costly concrete foundations are not necessary for our buildings, whether for permanent or temporary use. Save money by installing a building directly on the ground with little to no site preparation. The flexible nature of our covers means that they can safely be erected on somewhat uneven surfaces. Our structures can also be constructed on asphalt or concrete, and you can add height to your building by putting it on a pony wall, shipping containers or concrete blocks. Our Manta Ray Anchoring System for Truss Arch Buildings requires no excavation, meaning that it provides superior holding capacity while being environmentally friendly. Other anchoring options are also available.
Made from either polyethylene fabric or fire resistant vinyl, our covers never need maintenance or cleaning with harsh chemicals. Wash off dust, dirt, and pollutants with water or let the rain clean the exterior of your building for you.
There are no hiding places for rodents in a tension fabric structure. The corner-free design, combined with abundant natural lighting, creates an unappealing setting for nesting rodents. With no traditional insulation or wood, there are also fewer insects in these structures.
Manufacturer's warranties on our products vary from item to item. Please see individual item descriptions or contact us for full details on warranties prior to purchase. Due to the weight and nature of our products, we do not accept returns. Any damaged or defective merchandise will be replaced or repaired directly through the manufacturer through the warranty program.
TENSION FABRIC BARNS, SHELTERS AND GARAGES WARRANTIES:
Unless otherwise noted in the product description, standard manufacturer's warranty on all tension fabric buildings other than engineered truss structures - indoor riding arenas or specific large barns (which will be noted in product description - i.e. 12.5 oz covers generally have a 15 yr pro-rated warranty), is one (1) year on fabric and framework, covering manufacturer's defects. Warranties do not cover damage done by livestock, weather related damage or acts of God, or damage done by not following assembly or anchoring instructions.
Please note that this is standard warranty coverage on shelters this size but does not mean that the lifespan of these structures or covers is estimated to be one year. Generally a 9 or 10 oz fabric should have a durability of 10-15 years depending on weather conditions and can be replaced through us at a very reasonable cost if required. Galvanized or powder coated framework, barring damage by animals or machinery, should give 15++ years of life depending on usage.
INDOOR RIDING ARENA/ENGINEERED TRUSS STRUCTURE WARRANTIES:
