The ability to practice or play year-round is a key to getting great performances from athletes at any level no matter the sport. Indoor sports facilities are also great additions to any community. Not only do they provide sheltered practice fields or gymnasium space, they also offer recreation centers the space to host programs that give children and adults something to do even when the weather doesn’t want to cooperate.

When you’re ready to build an indoor sports facility, why not buy the best?

WeatherPort training facilities are a great addition to any campus.

WeatherPort™ creates shelter systems that are uniquely suited for a wide range of athletic and recreational applications. Sports teams, schools, communities and worksite camps around the world use our rugged and attractive fabric structures as gymnasiums, arenas, practice facilities, pool enclosures, horse riding arenas and recreation centers.

Here are some reasons why.


Quick, economical construction

Unlike metal, wood or brick-and-mortar buildings, WeatherPort’s fabric structures can be installed quickly and economically on a variety of surfaces and foundations. Our indoor sports facilities also require less site preparation than traditional structures, which helps reduce build times and construction costs. Your WeatherPort can be up and running in days or weeks, not months or more.

Strength and safety

Maybe you have some concerns about choosing a rugged fabric building over facilities made of traditional construction materials. Perhaps you think of cheap canvas products when you imagine that a fabric shelter system can’t match the ruggedness of those old-school buildings. It’s a common misconception.

Think about the gyms and rec centers you’ve seen. Their massive support systems have to be strong enough to hold up heavy roofs as well as snow loads, drenching rains and the pressure that strong winds add. Those roofs also can rust or rot, causing them to leak or fail. When you choose a WeatherPort, you’re investing in a fully engineered structure that meets or exceeds building codes for snow loads and inclement weather. Our robust PVC fabrics are lightweight and don’t leak, rust or rot. Our high-strength, heavy gable and truss gable architectural support systems have been field-tested for safe, reliable use in extreme climates and inclement weather.

 

Maximum interior space

Clear-span WeatherPort fabric membrane structures are great additions to existing facilities.

Unlike many gyms and rec centers that still use antiquated engineering and designs, WeatherPort fabric buildings have clear-span support systems that maximize interior space without the need for internal columns that block sightlines and otherwise get in the way. We also offer straight wall options for increased structure height. Our high-strength metal frames can safely support such hanging loads as scoreboards, ducts, lights, basketball backboards and more.

 

Unmatched versatility

We can also design your new sports facility to be incredibly versatile. WeatherPort fabric buildings can be built up to 150 feet wide and any length that allows for safe arch spacing. We can add partitions for increased storage space, commercial kitchens, restrooms, concession areas, retail shops and more. You can add custom graphics and logos to promote your school, business, organization or sponsors.

 

Energy efficiency

WeatherPort indoor sports facilities offer industry leading energy efficiency, a benefit that saves you money. Fabric building interiors generally are 15°F cooler than hot outdoor temperatures and 15°F warmer than frigid outdoor temps. We can design fabric buildings for proprietary insulation packages up to any R-value you desire. We also offer environmental control units. Our PVC fabrics allow in more natural light than other materials.

 

Low maintenance costs

Fabric structures require little to no maintenance during their life cycles, which last can last for decades depending on their environments. Our PVC fabrics don’t rust, resist mold, are easy to clean and rugged enough to resist ripping, tearing or flapping. You never have to add a coat of paint to a WeatherPort and our ventilation options ensure you won’t have to worry about musty odors found in older facilities.

    Hi,
    I am from Mauritius and am currently looking for a sport complex of about 1,500 m2. What structure would you advise me to look at? And do you ship to Mauritius?
