A "fabric building" also referred to as a "clear span metal building" is a building structure that utilizes a tension "fabric" that can withstand tension to be held in place. There are several types of tension fabrics used today: PVC coated polyester, silicon coated fiberglass, and Teflon coated fiberglass, Solawrap Film and Synergy Fabric. Our Britespan Building Structures are built with Solawrap Greenhouse Film or Synergy Fabric. Once the frame is built, the fabric cover is stretched over the frame.

It's economical! Fabric covered buildings offer lower operational costs, can be installed quickly, be naturally bright, can be customized, be permanent or relocatable, and be more cost effective to build. Not all fabric building are created equal. Here's why you should understand what sets a Britespan fabric building apart. Vist it the Britespan Cover-All Fabric Building Buyers Guide Watch the video here.
Fabric Roof: One of biggest benefit over traditional buildings is its fabric roof. A fabric cover has non-conductive properties that reduce the transmission of heat and cold, making the building feel warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Using a high-quality roofing material such as Solawrap or Synergy Fabric offers a major advantage.
Translucent Properties: Britespan polyethylene fabric covers called Synergy Fabric allows natural daylight into the building, reducing/eliminating daytime lighting cost. A fabric building will require typically 1/3 of the lighting capital costs due to the bright white underside of the fabric roof reflects and disperses the artificial lighting throughout the building.
Custom Sizing: A huge advantage is the spanning capabilities. A Britespan Building can span 24' - 300', to any length. Britespan's Rigid Beam series also offers custom heights, widths, eaves and slopes.
Britespan fit and finish go far beyond what you find with other competing lines.
