Temporary Warehouse Structures

  • Temporary Structures

    In the past, when companies needed more temporary storage space, they had two options. They could rent or build a permanent structure, which was very costly, or they could set up a tent, which lacked strength and security. Now, Temporary Warehouse Structures offers what more and more businesses are finding to be a superior alternative. If your company is storing valuable products, why not go with a proven solution? Our metal structures and portable warehouses have been used extensively in Europe and Australia for decades. They are constructed of rust-free galvanized steel and anodized aluminum. Engineered for extreme wind and snow, they have withstood the freezing gales of the North Sea and the blistering summers of the Australian outback. Best of all, they can be erected at a fraction of the cost of a brick-and-mortar structure.
  • Clear Span

    Clear Span’ is an architectural term to describe the distance between the two inside surfaces of the span supports; the distance that is unsupported, if you will.If you have need in your steel building design for a wide space that is clear of posts and beams, then a clear span design is the choice for you. In essence a clear span design is one that does not have supporting pillars such as those found in pole buildings. A clear span building offers the most usable space and is ideally suited to factories and warehouses where vehicles such as fork lift trucks are used within the building. Other applications could include sports complexes with full size playing fields and even indoor motocross arenas. The most common type of single store building above 10 m (30’) span is the steel ‘portal framed’ building; applications of portal frame buildings include: factories, warehouses, aircraft hangars, schools, gymnasiums & sports centers etc.
  • Temporary Fabric Structures

    Temporary Warehouse Structures offer portable fabric buildings that enable businesses to make investments in mobile buildings. The structures that we provide use a modular framing system that may be expanded, disassembled or assembled by a crew that has no prior experience with temporary fabric structures. We provide phone support and above industry standard customer support. Although disassembly can be useful for transporting the structure from one job site to another, it probably isn’t quite sufficient for relocating structures within one job site. We have encountered this need and addressed it here at Temporary Warehouse Structures. We provide mobility kits – rails and a crane-lifting package – that makes it possible to move our temporary fabric structures as whole units. The fabric structures from Temporary Warehouse use a corrosion resistant, triple-galvanized structural steel frame made in the USA.
  • Thermo Roof Air Systems

    Thermo Roof Air Systems Roof Structure Air Systems and Insulation. Our structures utilize a double layer thermo-roof design. This type of roof system is a breakthrough in technology. These design advantages limit rain/snow collection, thereby reducing roof loading and extending fabric life. The air system connects all fabric sections and maintains air pressure inside the roof/gable fabrics. A relief valve is installed in every structure to prevent over pressurization of the roof fabrics. This is an automatic, pressure controlled, and sealed system that requires NO personnel involvement once properly installed. Continuous 110 volt electric power is required for proper air system operation.
  • Clear Span HVAC

    HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. In warehouse spaces, HVAC systems control the ambient environment (temperature, humidity, air flow, and air filtering). These systems include filtration where required by climate, humidification, and dehumidification as well as heating and cooling. The goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. The cost effectiveness to install an HVAC system in a commercial warehouse space fully depends on its usage. The low noise operation of the system makes it’s very recommendable as it gives off near zero to zero noise pollution. When compared to some other cooling systems, TWS’s HVAC systems are very clean and quite safe to use, in addition to creating more purified air. In some cases, TWS might use a unit that is a combustion heat free system. This type of system works automatically by removing undesired air and replacing it with the more purified form.

These large portable buildings, often called industrial tents, are designed for industrial and commercial setup and re-use.The frame is made with galvanized steel and anodized aluminum for strength, durability, and flexibility. The various frame components are bolted together to form the structure’s skeleton.The vertical walls are 2 inches thick composed of two pieces of steel sheeting filled with foam. They are assembled vertically in a tongue and groove fashion. This design allows for insulation, security, and safety. Water can seep under the walls if the interior is lower than the exterior ground level.The tops and gables are double ply 21 oz. coated vinyl fabric that is air inflated.

About us

Temporary Warehouse Structures was founded in 1998 by two men that had over 36 years of experience in the German clear span tent industry. No company in the United States was providing the ”industrial grade” clear span tent structure for the portable temporary warehouse market.

Several party and event tent companies offered (and still do) their clear span tents for use as a temporary warehouses, but they were not of the strength, durability, or innovative design as the clear span warehouses that were available in Europe. Temporary Warehouse Structures was the first American company to exclusively offer this superior product. Our structures are heavier due to larger profile aluminum extruded rafters and cave uprights, galvanized steel reinforcing joint inserts, and galvanized steel purlins. The structures are NOT – and we do not offer – party/event structures. Our 2 ply air inflated roof fabric is far superior to the industry standard single ply fabrics. Our Thermo Roofs offer a dead air space insulation factor, no water or snow accumulation at the eaves, no condensation dripping into the structure interior, no wind flutter of the material, and they add strength to the structure.

We are continually proud to offer our clients superior material, craftsmanship, and structurally sound clear span buildings. Call us TODAY at 281-489-7811 to discuss your project or request a quote.
