Quality that Stands the Test of Time

Winkler Structures’ customers have come to expect nothing less than a high quality, industry backed, fabric covered building solution. This is due to the longevity of the buildings, the weather conditions they can withstand, and the industry standards that Winkler Structures adheres to. With minimal maintenance required, Winkler’s fabric buildings stand the test of time and mother nature too.


While they can also be portable, fabric tension structures are indeed a long term building solution. Winkler dispels the myth that fabric membrane structures are only a temporary or short-term storage or housing solution. Many of our first installed buildings are still standing in the same places today, and Winkler was one of the first manufacturers of fabric covered structures for the agricultural industry. The fabric cover, made with our specialty polyethylene material, lasts 20 to 25 years while being virtually maintenance free. Additionally, with its advanced UV protection coating, you don’t have to worry about sun exposure degrading your building.


Not only built for longevity, Winkler’s fabric membrane structures also stand up to any weather conditions including rain, hail, and snow, which bounces or slides off of the fabric membrane cover. Winkler’s unique truss design in its steel is also designed to withstand these weather extremes including high winds. Buildings can be engineered to withstand any wind or snow load rating worldwide.

What ties all these elements together in manufacturing our high quality, No Compromise Fabric Structures? It’s the certifications and industry standards that Winkler adheres to, regardless of which industry or application the building is being used for. Winkler Structures is certified under the Canadian Welding Bureau, and is also ISO 9001:2008 and CSA A660 certified.



Whether a fabric structure is sought for the certification-heavy oil and gas fields, or just a small hay storage shed on a local farm, the same level of quality and procedures go into the manufacturing process.
