Inspecting The Fabric Structure

If you’ve had your fabric structure for a while now, perhaps it’s time that you take a good look at your fabric building and make sure that it’s still in good condition. In fact, you should make inspecting your fabric structure a regular routine. Otherwise, you may suddenly find that it has deteriorated beyond repair. Regular inspection of your fabric structure is one of the things that you can do to ensure that it will last you for a long time and give the best return for your investment.

Remember that your fabric structure, being outside all the time makes it subject to all sorts of elements. For instance, while you and the items you are keeping inside your fabric temporary storage structures are taking cover inside, your building is taking a beating with things such as rain, wind, the sun’s UV rays, snow, ice, etc. How do you think this impacts your structure? Doing an inspection regularly can save you from greater headaches later down the road.

When buildings get pounded by winter storms or heavy rain and wind, eventually the protective coating on the fabric on the building may become affected. Once that happens, it is a matter of time until the sun’s rays cause the fabric to fall apart. Don’t let that happen – inspect your structure regularly!

While inspecting your building, look for possible leaks, tears, or other weak spots in the fabric that could be affecting the controlled climate. Check that there are no tiny holes from bolts or screws like on a metal building roof, which can allow drips and leaks over time as well. You should do this for all sorts of fabric in your facility like the warehouse divider walls or factory dividers and not just the roofs and covers.

When it comes to tarps used in the trucking industry, we specialise in offering!

  • Steel Tarps: These tarps are ideal for protecting various steel products including cables, sheets, rods etc. These four-sided tarps also come with end flaps.
  • Smoke (or Nose) Tarps: Truck owners often use these tarps to cover the front of the truck load. This helps in protecting the load from soot, dirt and exhaust smoke.
  • Lumber Tarps: These tarps typically feature flaps at the rear end. The presence of these flaps keeps the wood covered on all sides. As mentioned previously, we can customise our lumber, truck and bunker tarps to suit your specific needs. For instance, our lumber tarps feature grommets built in at close frequencies. This makes it easier to fasten the tarp closely and compactly.
  • Dump Truck Tarps: These tarps are as versatile as our bunker and hay tarps. The dump truck tarps that we supply make it easier to carry all kinds of materials such as grain, fertilizer and soil.
