The HD Buildings are available in both gable‐ and round‐style designs and can be mounted as a freestanding structure or affixed to other foundations, such as ponywalls or containers. HD Buildings are made from triple‐galvanized structural steel tubing for the frame and a 12.5 oz., high‐density polyethylene (HDPE) rip‐stop fabric cover. ClearSpan Fabric Structures provides de‐ sign‐build solutions for any desired ap‐ plication. ClearSpan buildings feature abundant natural light and spacious in‐ teriors without internal support posts. With minimal foundation requirements, the structures can be permanent or tem‐ porary and are easy to relocate. Made in the U.S.A., they can be built to any length and up to 300‐ft. wide. ClearSpan's cor‐ porate headquarters are located in South Windsor, Conn., and supports a campus for manufacturing and distribution in Dyersville, Iowa. The structures are ideal for covering aggregates stockpiles or for equipment protection. Since there are no internal support posts, the building allows for maximum usable space. The fabric cover is avail‐ able in several colors, and its permeable properties make it extremely energy ef‐ ficient. The polyethylene material allows the transmission of abundant natural light, significantly cutting costs that would otherwise be needed for supple‐ mental lighting. What's more, the pre‐ fabricated design of 20 ft. on center truss rafter spacing yields an expedited pro‐ duction time, so customers can receive their building quickly. "We added the three lengths of 160‐, 180‐ and 200‐ft. simply due to customer demand," stated ClearSpan's Senior Vice President Matt Niaura. "Having these new profiles in our system will allow for a faster overall process from order to in‐ stallation." The HD buildings start at 25‐ft. wide and cost as little as $7.49 dollars per sq. ft. End panels and accessories are also available, but are sold separately. "We're always trying to provide the best prod‐ uct, while still keeping costs down," ClearSpan President and CEO Barry Goldsher said.
