Temporary buildings for the military

Buildings that are easily relocated are especially beneficial for military purposes. The U.S. Department of Defence knows that a portable building is the most economical and feasible way to meet short-term needs of military facilities.

A fabric covered building from Winkler Structures is an ideal solution for military use as it is both portable and durable. Whether seeking a storage facility for military vehicles and equipment or a shelter for service men and women, Winkler Structures will serve all military branches to its best ability.

Customizable buildings 

When investing in a clear span building from Winkler Structures, customers know they are purchasing a quality, customized product. Each project is taken on by a team who customizes the building to meet the unique needs of each customer and the military is no exception. If the structure will be used for equipment maintenance and storage, Winkler Structures can design a building with enough overhead room to ensure plenty of space for working and maneuvering large equipment.

“A clear span building from Winkler Structures features a specialty fabric that provides impressive strength.”

In addition, the NovaShield Membrane Structure Fabric is ideal for light transparency. With natural daylight allowed into the building, there is no need for artificial lighting during the day time. This saves money on energy costs and infrastructure.

Quality and durability 

A clear span building from Winkler Structures features a specialty fabric that provides impressive strength-to-weight ratios. The polyethylene material is ideal for quick and efficient installation, which is especially beneficial for military use.

In addition, the material used for these fabric structures stands up to everything from wind and rain to snow and ice. The UV protection coating also ensures the integrity of the fabric no matter the sun exposure level and is also the only one of its kind to offer both UV resistance as well as flame retardant properties. In fact, NovaShield will pass even the most demanding of certification standards, including:

  • California Fire Marshall
  • DIN4102
  • Far 25.863(a)
  • UBC31-1
  • ASTM E84

The Allied Gatorshield steel serves as a superior skeleton for all fabric covered buildings engineered by the designers at Winkler Structures and backed by a 15 year warranty.

Quick and efficient construction 

Army Facilities Management emphasized the importance of having a safe, efficient and detailed construction project when erecting portable and temporary buildings. Winkler Structures come down just as easily as they go up, leave little to zero footprint behind and can simply relocated as required.
