Fabric structures

How long is the lifetime of a fabric structure from Hallbyggarna Jonsereds? All steel frames we supply are hot dip galvanised in accordance with EN 1461 and are completely rust protected. We manufacture our steel frames in high strength steel and the lifetime of these is several decades. The technical lifetime of the tarpaulin is 25 to 30 years and it can easily be replaced if needed.

Is a building permit required? A building permit is required within an area covered under a zoning plan. We can assist with drawings and other documentation that is required for the building permit application. If needed, we can also provide a certified inspector and assistance with the building permit application. If you prefer to find a certified inspector near you instead, we recommend the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning website.

What do your fabric structures cost per m²? A price per m² depends on several variables such as the dimensions of the fabric structure, geographical location, equipment and customer customisation. This is why we need more information before we can give you a price. We are happy to help you with a free quotation and you are always welcome to contact us with your questions and needs.

Why choose a fabric structure from Hallbyggarna Jonsereds? There are many factors that form the basis for why Hallbyggarna Jonsereds is a great choice of supplier. We have over 50 years’ experience and have completed more than 18,000 fabric structure projects, which has made us the reliant supplier we are.

What factors that impact the price? Our products are developed with two main goals, a short delivery time and competitive price. Generally speaking, we can say that it is more financially favourable to build long instead of wide, because the steel frames with a smaller span are cheaper than the steel frames with a larger span. The snow load for the relevant installation site also has an impact on the price.

Why do you need to know what the snow load is? Our constructions are calculated in accordance with Eurocode, which contains dimensioning for, among others, snow and wind loads for the relevant site where the fabric structure is to be fitted.

Are the fabric structures CE marked? Of course, we are certified in accordance with EN-1090-1, which concerns load-bearing components. Companies who manufacture loadbearing components (supporting construction parts) that have been dimensioned with Eurocodes need to be certified in accordance with EN-1090-1- As a certified manufacturer we issue performance declarations and CE marks.

How long is the delivery time? The delivery time for our fabric structures is truly short in comparison with conventional buildings. The size of the fabric structure, area of use, specific customer customisation and season are things that can affect the time for e.g., dimensioning, manufacturing and installation. Some of our spans are kept in stock and we are thus able to supply them with a noticeably short time span. Contact us and we will discuss the delivery time for your needs.

Can your fabric structures be heated? Of course! The fabric structure can be insulated in a way that ensures a great insulation R-value. With insulation on the inside of the frames there is better protection and it retains its insulating function unlike most solutions that are placed on top of the truss where the snow load can compress the insulation together with a poorer insulation R-value as a result.

Can a fabric structure from Hallbyggarna Jonsereds be used to store materials that are sensitive to moisture? Of course! We dimension for dehumidified environments, which ensures that your material is stored in the required environment. Our solution also eliminates the risk for condensation, which can be a factor in all types of cold storage.

How long does PVC last? Our PVC is exceptionally durable and lasts a long time. PVC is created to be resistant against wear. It also protects against decay and shrinkage, plus it is resistant against acid and is waterproof. All of this is combined to increase the lifetime of the PVC material.

How much does an electric heating mat thaw per day? Our electric heating mats are 1×3 metres, 1000 w and thaw approx. 30 cm per day. However, this is not something we can guarantee.

We want to build an ice hockey rink, which tarpaulin should I use? Tarpaulin 250g/m² 10×12 metres or 10×20 metres works excellently for this purpose. Use our guide for how to build an ice hockey rink at home.

Can your insulating matsbe hung up as a drapery or separator in order to e.g., dampen the noise in a room or to keep the heat in? Yes, it can be used for this e.g., at different constructions.
