Specialty Fabrics Review July 2021 - 40

B
roiling summers, harsh winters, drought, fires,
hurricanes-climate change is making life harder, more
fraught and dangerous for people across the globe.
While political leaders and governments argue over policies
and regulations, the specialty fabrics industry is stepping up
to devise products to help mitigate the affects of a changing
climate. Here we highlight companies whose products are
experiencing increased climate-driven demand.
PROVIDING NATURAL ILLUMINATION
Extreme climate patterns and a greater demand for protection from
harsh weather have contributed to interest in engineered fabric
structures, says Deanna Hope, marketing manager for Calhoun
Super Structure. Other factors boosting demand include funding
from the new Biden administration for infrastructure projects as
well as corporate operations requiring new structures for storing
equipment and housing livestock. Hope says the pandemic
contributed as well, upping the clamor for large, covered and airy
temporary fabric solutions.
Located in Tara, Ontario, Canada, Calhoun designs, engineers
and manufactures fabric structures for the agriculture, municipal,
commercial, industrial, residential, recreational, equestrian and
fertilizer markets. Its structures range from 16 to 250 feet wide and
can be constructed for any length.
Included in the company's lineup is the CC Series, offering a
hoop aesthetic and greater design capacity than wood or steel; the
VP Series, with cathedral-style peaks and flexibility of design; and
the HT Series for customers seeking additional height.
Two of Calhoun's newest profiles are the SE Series, with a
Calhoun manufactures custom engineered
fabric structures up to 250 feet wide and for any
length. Shown here is the company's CC Series
product, a traditional hoop aesthetic that affords
greater design capacity compared to a wood
or steel structure. The fabric on the structures
ranges from 16 to 19 percent translucency.

45-foot-wide opening side-width and height ranging from 10 to 35
feet, and the GB Series, which has standard 10-foot-high side walls
and makes efficient use of floor space. Both use gable brackets for
construction efficiencies.
" Calhoun currently uses engineered high-density polyethylene
[HDPE] fabric manufactured into a woven sheet-form and coated
on both sides with a specialized, thick protective layer that aids in
protecting against UV damage, " says Hope. " The fabric covers offer
up to 16 percent translucency for non-fire-retardant [non-FR] fabric
and 19 percent translucency for fire-retardant [FR] fabric. "
Allowing in natural daylight reduces electrical usage and saves
costs. At night, these structures typically require one-third of the
lighting, since the underside of the fabric roof reflects and disperses
any artificial lighting used (additional energy cost reductions can be
achieved through adding solar panels).
