Fabric Buildings for Movie Sets, TV Shows, and Commercials
Need an assortment of futuristic looking structures for a colony on the surface of Mars, a remote research facility, a medical or isolation facility to contain a virus outbreak, military shelters for a war scene, a large warehouse for a top secret alien spaceship, or an engineered structure like the WeatherPorts used by guide and outfitting companies at the base camp of Mount Everest? No problem. WeatherPort has worked with producers, assistant directors, production supervisors, location managers to create custom structures for movie sets, television shows, and commercials. Our tensioned fabric structures have been used in front of the camera, as well as for support facilities behind the camera, including makeup and wardrobe facilities, dressing rooms, props and equipment storage, production and office space, hospitality suites, production crew housing, sound stages, film sets, and on-site warehousing.

The Benefits of Fabric Buildings for Film Sets
WeatherPort fabric buildings provide many benefits over traditional building construction, modular buildings,and trailers for film and TV productions. The following benefits have been proven hundreds of times by film and production crews operating in extreme and remote places:
- Engineered and designed to meet specific wind and snow loads for safety.
- High quality materials and strict quality control procedures ensure a fabric building system capable of withstanding extreme conditions and unmatched durability.
- Lightweight and low-cube designs reduce shipping costs and logistical burden.
