Gable Buildings – Rugged Fabric Buildings with Straight Side Walls
The ruggedly classic design of arch-style fabric buildings and canvas wall tents give way to a new generation of tensioned fabric buildings with straight side walls. The GB Series from WeatherPort® utilizes the latest engineering principles, the highest quality materials, and more than five decades worth of proven manufacturing excellence to create the longest lasting gable-style fabric building available.
When we set out to create the ultimate portable building system, we asked a diverse group of previous customers – individuals, hunters, guide outfitters, golf courses, ski lodges and ski resorts, car dealerships, port facilities, small business owners, and camp operators to name a few, for input on designing the next generation of premier portable buildings. We received a resounding response asking for a straight-wall shelter system that offered the same level of portability, fast and easy set up, rugged durability, and craftsmanship found in our other fabric building systems.
Since opening our doors in 1968, the WeatherPort team has strived to create customizable building solutions engineered to meet the wind and snow loads of any location in the world. The GB Series of fabric buildings exemplifies this continued pursuit and has earned us the reputation of being the leaders in the fabric building industry.
Available in high-strength galvanized steel or lightweight and aircraft grade aluminum, the single-arch frame systems of the GB Series are designed for portability. Engineered with a minimum tool and foundation requirement, the GB Series employs a revolutionary shelter design that allows for a fast set up on virtually any level surface. Our architectural fabric membranes are engineered to withstand extreme weather conditions – be it year-round exposure to extreme heat and high solar loads like those found in a desert climate, or enduring the bone-chilling cold and high winds of Antarctica.
