Additional Fabric Building Components
HVAC Systems and Ventilation
A well-ventilated fabric structure is critical in the comfort and efficiency of your operation. Whether ventilation is needed for the health of employees, livestock productivity, or improving airflow in caustic environments, your ventilation requirements may vary depending on your industry, building application, and size.
HVAC systems and ventilation can be added to most Calhoun fabric building frames. Calhoun can assist in providing various types of ventilation system options that work with your particular industry, building application, and size.
Some of the many options we recommend include:
- Radiant Tube Ventiliation
- Make Up Air Systems
- Passive and Active Wall Vents
- Ridge Vents
End-wall panels are a maintenance-free option to passively ventilate your fabric building. Mesh or aluminum panels are available in any size and several colors to match your fabric building aesthetic.
Fans and exhaust vents are active ventilation options to create desired fabric building airflow. While these options require additional cost and maintenance they provide optimal airflow for certain industry applications.
Insulation and Liners
Insulated fabric buildings are most suitable where weather is an impeding factor and heat retention is required, or for industries with caustic environments where insulation is necessary to seal the building frame and prevent contact with corrosive materials.
Insulated fabric buildings and climate-control systems provide an optimal indoor environment, which you can opt to fully or partially insulate.
Calhoun can assist in providing various types of insulation and/or liners that work with your particular industry, building application, and size.
Some of the options we recommend include:
- Fabric Liner with Batten Fiberglass Insulation
- Industrial Grade Reflective Foil Insulation Liner
- Fabric Liner (no insulation)
Fabric liners can be added to fabric buildings with caustic environments. This ensures the frame does not contact the corrosive materials including fine dust particles.
Fabric liners are also included in a cavity-ventilation system to prevent moisture build-up on the steel frames.
Windows and Doors
Calhoun understands that one of the most critical features of your fabric building is accessing it, and the size the access area needs to be to accommodate employees, livestock, or machinery.
Calhoun can assist in providing various types of windows and door options that work with your particular industry, building application, design, and size. Some of the options we recommend include:
- Section Overhead Doors
- Steel Roll-Up
- Aluminum Roll-Up
- Rubber Doors
- Fabric Doors
- Bifold Doors
Calhoun can assist with providing a variety of man-door options as well, depending on your industry, building application, design, and size requirements.
Our professional teams work with you to ensure your fabric building meets your needs and local building codes.
