Sprung Structures has provided membrane structures to industries, businesses and governments in more than 100 countries. Their structures offer a number of advantages, including:

#1 – Quick Construction

One of the biggest advantages of Sprung Structures is the quick construction. One 235,000-square-foot Sprung structure was constructed and ready for move-in in just 11 months. That’s an impressive feat for such a large structure.

Most structures can be delivered to the job site within three weeks of placing an order.

Sprung has an office around the world, with manufacturing and distribution centers in the Middle East and North America.

The Sprung team can erect a non-insulated structure of up to 2,000 square feet in just a day.

Sprung structures have:

  • Minimal foundation requirements
  • Flexible options for purchasing or leasing
  • The ability to be expanded and relocated

All of these factors also help move the construction process along more quickly and smoothly.

#2 – Flexible Design

Sprung offers a number of options when purchasing your structure, including various building components. These structures are also modular by nature, which makes it easy to expand them or remove modules to downsize.

The interiors of these structures also have a flexible design and offer a bright, welcoming environment. Attractive design elements include:

  • High ceilings
  • Daylight panels
  • Glazing walls
  • Colorful graphics

Sprung makes it easy for buyers to make their structure their own and a reflection of their brand or organization.

#3 – High Performance and Durability

Sprung Structures are known for their high performance and durability.

Their structures are built with a non-corroding aluminum substructure for their structures and an ultra-durable architectural membrane to ensure your structure lasts. You can also add insulation to create a completely finished interior.

The company’s tension system uses individual 15-foot membrane panels that are tensioned horizontally and vertically. The structure’s unique tension system and shape allow the building to withstand extreme weather conditions.

When constructing a structure, a Sprung technical consultant is on-site at all times to monitor and oversee the process.

#5 – Lower Costs

Sprung Structures can save you time and money.

  • Delivery and construction are quick. Many buildings take just a few weeks or months to complete after delivery.
  • Structures are ultra-airtight to improve energy efficiency and reduce overall operating costs.
  • The Kynar- and Tedlar-coated architectural fabric membranes are long-lasting and highly durable.
  • The non-corroding aluminum substructure can last decades.

The construction time savings and the longevity of Sprung Structures lower the overall cost of your structure and maintaining it.

With their durability, quick construction and flexible design options, Sprung Structures is a great option for both industrial and non-industrial applications. For more than 120 years, they have been responsible for offering membrane structures that are used in industries, such as energy and gas, mining, aviation and many more.
