Fabric buildings for waste management centers are becoming a rising trend. Leaders in the industry are discovering how such structures are beneficial in terms of overhead cost, employee satisfaction, sanitation, etc. We’ll summarize how fabric buildings improve efficiency in waste and recycling facilities.
These benefits apply to most industries but are especially relevant for facilities that handle waste in some shape or form.
1. Natural Lighting
Fabric cladding enables natural lighting to enter the interior. This helps save on electrical lighting and also creates a more pleasant work environment for employees. Studies have also shown that natural light increases alertness and curbs afternoon fatigue. This is most beneficial when work becomes repetitive.
Portions of fabric buildings contain open end walls or mesh under the canopy walls. This provides maximum ventilation and is crucial for removing odors. You can also install an active ventilation system, much like the ones found in some steel buildings, for optimal odor control.
3. Durable Construction
Fabric buildings are reinforced with steel frames. These are durable enough to hang and support the weight of heavy machinery, such as cranes, conveyors, and catwalks. The buildings can also support the addition of smaller lean-to structures that serve as breakrooms or offices.
Fabric doesn’t corrode. This makes it beneficial for an industry that handles corrosive material on a regular basis. What about the steel beams? The beams are also corrosion-resistant due to the use of hot-dipped galvanized solid steel.
Spokane waste centers can benefit immensely from transitioning to a fabric building. Contact C&S Construction for a customized fabric structure or pole building as a primary or secondary warehouse. Fabric buildings for the waste managment industry is one way to improve day-to-day operations.
