Winkler’s tension membrane structures are ideal for the Oil and Gas industry. We specialize in buildings for equipment storage, material storage, site protection, housing units, and anything else that requires a safe, secure environment with protection from the elements.
Our fabric structures provide maximum protection with minimal to zero footprint. Buildings can be installed in as little as a week and can be deconstructed and moved in the same amount of time. This gives up a significant amount of upfront savings in construction time. Fabric buildings from Winkler Structures are easily relocated and can be repurposed to meet any industry demand. Versatility without sacrificing quality is what sets us apart in the oil and gas industry.
We use nothing but the best raw materials so you know you’ll be getting an industry leading level of quality. The translucent fabric cover gives the benefits of natural light; which provide an enjoyable working environment while saving you substantial amounts in reduced operating costs. Our clear span design allows you to maximize your floor space and moving equipment throughout the fabric structure is simple without columns to obstruct pathways.
Go one step further when you incorporate shipping containers in the design. Use the interior of the containers for washrooms, lunchrooms, meeting space or secure storage. When changing job sites, simply dismantle the building and load materials into the container for easy transport. Insulation packages can create a comfortable working environment year-round that doesn’t block off natural lighting.
Winkler Structures are always built to the specifications of the customer. We want your fabric building to fit the exact needs in your operation. During the project planning there are multiple options that can be added to the building with ease, including: Doors, Ventilation, Eaves, End Walls, Fabric, Foundation, and Curtains. Because every building is different, we have the right options at competitive prices to make your building work for you.

Ventilation is key to having a climate controlled tension membrane structure. We can incorporate ventilation systems into our steel frame to allow for a wide variety of ventilation and fan options. We work closely with industry leading ventilation designers to combine their expertise with our customizable frame, ensuring you get the right ventilation for your project every time.
Ventilation can also be built right into the tension membrane to give you free flowing air throughout the building. Canvas can be replaced with large mesh vents on the end walls and structurally supported ridge vents can be built into the roof. Let our experienced design team help you get the ventilation you need at an affordable price.
Eave attachments ranging in size from 1’ – 6’ and everything in between can easily be designed and attached to your building. We use the same high quality materials that we do in our structures to ensure your investments are protected.
Common Eave Uses
- Cover outside feed bunks on cattle confinement buildings
- Keep moisture away from your foundation wall
- Additional storage along the length of a building
The custom nature of our buildings requires a very detailed approach to end walls. Our project managers will work closely with the design team to ensure you get the exact end wall you need to get the job done. We use the same industry leading steel and fabric that we do on our buildings to ensure quality throughout the building. Door sizes, ventilation options, and protection strength are all taken into account when designing our engineered end walls.
A wide variety of fabric options is crucial to provide buildings for every industry. Our No Compromise attitude means we have the fabric option for almost any application. All of our fabric comes from an industry leading supplier that we hold to the same quality standards that our customers demand.
