Steel frame

Modular tensile structures, built to last.

Steel frame fabric buildings

Renthall rents flexible fabric buildings that can comfortably cover all business requirements. These buildings are used for everything from sports halls and aircraft hangars to warehouses and production halls. They are also modular by design, allowing them to be extended or relocated in the future to meet your business’ growing needs. If you need a temporary building that is also built to last, this is the solution.

With Renthall, ISO 9000 Quality Assurance procedures are the foundation for all operations, from initial briefing through to final commissioning.

Bespoke buildings

Our steel-framed buildings can be adapted as needed by our expert engineers. Custom designed buildings can accommodate all types of door, ventilation, and other systems and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes, ceiling-mounted HVAC and fire-suppression systems, fall-protection equipment and other superimposed loads. Decide whether your project needs our Thermohall® insulation, as both insulated and uninsulated buildings are available to suit your needs.

Flexible foundations

Bespoke structures can accommodate many foundation options such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Renthall co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost-effective solution.

Design criteria

All structures are designed in accordance with UK Building Regulations with respect to wind and snow loads. The design is in strict accordance with the relevant British Standards or Eurocodes. We can also offer buildings around the world designed to suit local conditions and code requirements. Our past projects have been designed to sustain wind speeds up to 135mph and snow loads up to 500kg/m2. The building framework and cladding membrane are structurally analysed using appropriate non-linear techniques and software.

Premium fabric

All buildings are clad with tough PVC impregnated polyester fabric. The sheets are sectioned in accordance with the length of the building and joined with special overlap joints. These joints are waterproof and able to withstand vibrations caused by high winds. The membrane is tensioned over the steel structure and anchored to the foundations. The quality fabric has a life expectancy of up to 25 years depending on environmental conditions.
