Why choose a pvc fabric building for your business

Frontal hangars can fulfil several functions, including:

  • Extension of an already existing warehouse. This type of tunnel provides additional sheltered space when the production activities become more intensive;
  • Extension of storage areas. The installation of a frontal hangar creates a covered space for loading and unloading operations whatever the season and weather conditions;
  • Vehicle and equipment repository

Another valuable quality is its versatility. The frontal hangar may be assembled and dismantled according to individual necessities and situations. In some countries it is possible to get tax reduction by choosing temporary building; for further information please refer to local rules.

Qualities of frontal hangars

These retractable buildings are provided with galvanized steel structure and PVC fabric previously subjected to specific treatments to ensure insulation and protection against mold and condensation.

As far as the opening and closing mechanism is concerned, the steel structure comes with wheels sliding on metallic guide rails. The latter is equipped with a protection device that ensures durability over the entire system.

The tensioned PVC fabric curtains are designed to withstand wind force thanks to specific devices, e.g. strong straps.

Frontal structures are adaptable to different working environments, such as agriculture and industrial sectors.

Installation and customization

Frontal hangars allow greater customization, according to individual requirements. Besides accessories and size options, the customer can select the covering color and decide whether to have the company logo on it.

Furthermore, it is possible to add other accessories, such as roll-up or fold-up door. The latter is particularly useful for those activities that demand semi-automatic opening and closing systems.

The installation is quick and comes within 30-60 days (time could vary depending on sizes).
