Fabric Covers

Standard Covers - Designed for Strength and Durability

Fabric

The covers used on Norseman Structures buildings are manufactured from 12 oz/yd²406.9g/m², 23mil0.59mm thick polyethylene fabric.

This fabric is created using a layer of woven tapes (scrim) and is then coated with a specialized, 4 or 6 mil thick protective layer, front and back, that helps protect against UV damage and scuffing.  This combination provides a cover with increased protection against abrasion during fabrication, installation and everyday use for years to come. In addition, these covers have tremendous rip, tear and puncture resistance. 

Covers are available in a variety of colors.

Fabric covers allow sunlight to filter through (20.9% light transmission), resulting in a building with a bright atmosphere. This reduces and may even eliminate the need for artificial lighting during the day for reduced energy costs.

If natural light is not desired, blackout fabric is also available.

Optional Cover Materials

Fire Retardant (FR):
Fire Retardant fabric is available and manufactured to provide protection for your valuable assets while adhering to stringent building codes required. It has self extinguishing properties, often eliminating the flame instead of adding fuel as many building materials would.

Watch how the fabric covers used on our Commercial line of buildings performs when exposed to fire. Watch video.

PVC: Depending on your specific requirements, Norseman can also provide a large selection of PVC fabrics. They are available in a variety of weights, colors, translucency and topcoats.

Warranty

Standard & FR (fire retardant) covers are available with a pro-rated warranty up to 20 years. Warranty details can be found in each Norseman Structures Owners Manual shipped with your building.

Instron Testing Ensures Quality

Fabric building manufacturers source finished covers or procure raw material in order to create covers for their buildings. However, most manufacturers cannot confirm the strength of their fabric past the manufacturers specifications.

As testament to our commitment to accuracy, quality and safety, we have invested in an Instron Testing System designed to test the shear strength of raw fabric and weld adhesion on the seams to ensure we meet new building code requirements.

First, we test 'weld adhesion' which involves peeling our welds apart and recording the amount of strength required to do so. Secondly, we determine at what point the fabric fails after it has been welded together. Engineers review these results to ensure the design of the structures and covers is in line with fabric weld strength and to ensure all welding machines are functioning and calibrated correctly.
