Two Natural Light Fabric Structures were completed this past week in Clarion, IA, for Rembrandt Enterprises. The project consisted of two tension membrane fabric structures erected on 8′ concrete poured walls, above ground. One building was 80′ x 200′ and the other was 80′ x 400′. The buildings will be used for manure storage. Total erection time of the buildings was just under one month.
Want to maximize your commodity storage investment?
When you decide to build, consider getting the best of both worlds. Hybrid Buildings, from Behlen Manufacturing and Natural Light Fabric Structures, offer the strength of welded-plate rigid frames. They are engineered to meet necessary loads and are custom designed to meet your needs. Hybrid Buildings also offer the lighting and ventilation benefits of a Natural Light polyethylene fabric roof. The result is a stronger, brighter, and more cost-effective building solution.
Hybrid Building Advantages for Commodity Storage:
- Engineered to meet all required loads, including unbalanced snow loads
- Engineered to carry conveyor loads
- Engineered to carry temperature monitoring cables
- Engineered to carry grain loads up 20′ on building side walls
- Flexibility in design allows for customized structural features such as large door openings
- Optional liner panel provides a clean, finished look
- Standard or reverse tapered frames which will give you a flush wall to clean against
- Modular or clear span frames to allow greatest flexibility
- Can easily be designed for future building expansion
- Building provides superior ventilation compared to a conventional steel structure
Greystone Construction, an authorized dealer for Natural Light Fabric Structures, recently completed a new salt shed for the Minnesota Department of Transportation in Rochester, MN. The project consisted of a 100′ x 160′ Natural Light Fabric Building erected on 4′ above grade concrete piers. The tension membrane fabric structure spans 12′ precast concrete bunker panels.

Natural Light Fabric Structures are ideal for commodity storage for many reasons:
- Buildings are designed to maximize air floor
- Polyethlyene fabric substantially reduces the risk of condensation compared to wood/steel buildings
- Buildings’ high clearances create a safe working environment for truck and payloader operators
- Building steel is galvanized which reduces the risk of rusting in a highly corrosive enviorment like salt
Williston, North Dakota – Two fabric buildings from Natural Light Fabric Structures were recently completed in western North Dakota for a pipeline company working on new pipeline infrastructure in the Bakken oil and gas play. Both tension membrane fabric structures were 32′ x 40′ and were installed on shipping (sea) containers. The buildings are an ideal warehouse building solution in western North Dakota for the Bakken Oil play because of their ability to be installed quickly and easily moved from site to site.
Two 50′ x 60′ Natural Light Fabric Structures were recently installed on double stacked shipping containers in WI. The tension membrane fabric structures provide a high side wall height and 50′ of clear span for working space. The two fabric building warehouse storage buildings were installed in only a few days.

Greystone Construction, an authorized dealer for Natural Light Fabric Structures (NLFS), has completed the first of two buildings for Rembrandt Enterprise. The buildings will be used for manure compost. The first fabric compost building is an 80′ x 200′ NLFS DP Series and the second commodity storage building is an 80′ x 400′. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of July 2012. Both tension membrane fabric structures are being erected on a poured concrete foundation.
NLFS uses hot dipped galvanized steel which substantially reduced the risk of rust. The 80′ NLFS building profile allows for trucks and payloaders to operate safely as the product is piled inside the warehouse storage building.
