SSG: Gable Roof

Our SSG line of fabric covered buildings are our most popular style, with a versatility and economy that lends itself to many applications. Gable pitches can vary from 15° for moderate climates to 30° for high snow load areas.

SSG15: This gable design with a 15 degree slope economically provides the maximum usable cubic space in any combination of width and length, as well as the highest possible clearance across the full shelter width. The SSG15 is typically used in areas with snow loads of less than 20 psf. Its gable slope complements existing structures.

 

Common uses: The SSG15 fabric covered building is popular with industrial, municipality and military clients, and is widely used for warehousing, manufacturing and aviation. It can also be outfitted with metal sidewalls for additional strength and security (See Hardside product for more details)

SSG30: This gable design with a 30 degree slope is used in areas with substantial snow loads, as its steeper roof slope is stronger, sheds snow buildup and provides the most economical engineered solution for these areas. The SSG30 is typically used in areas with snow loads of 20 psf and higher. This design provides the highest clearances near the center of the shelter.

Common uses: The SSG30 fabric covered structure is popular with industrial, municipality and military clients, and is widely used for warehousing/bulk storage, aviation and manufacturing (with high center clearance requirements).

 

All Shelter Structures fabric covered buildings are built to last, with galvanized steel frames and coated polyester-reinforced PVC membranes. They can be outfitted with any commercially available accessories you may need, including lighting, HVAC and doors (personnel, roll-up, pivoting and more).

Additional benefits of our fabric covered buildings include:

  • A modular design that allows you to expand and subdivide structures into multiple units and easily relocate them as your needs change
  • Unobstructed clear span space, with no columns or internal supports
  • Mobility to provide clear access to the interior; most fabric covered shelters can be designed to be moved on wheels or track systems, or via crane
  • Eco-friendly construction, with recycled steel and a small carbon footprint created during manufacturing, transportation and installation
  • Reduced energy use in fabric covered buildings utilizing translucent fabric
  • Optional hard sides for locations where security is a concern or for operations that require protection for the fabric
  • All Shelter Structures fabric covered buildings have a service life of 15-25 years while the galvanized frames have a service life of 50 years. All shelters comply with local building codes, and meet all of the environmental requirements at your specific
