Legacy Building Solutions, a designer, manufacturer and installer of tension fabric buildings, including aircraft hangars, has opened a new fabric manufacturing plant at its headquarters in South Haven, Minn.
The new facility will allow the company to produce higher quality fabric panels while also increasing capacity, company officials said.
The new plant is a hybrid fabric-steel structure that incorporates steel sheeting on the exterior sides. Offering more clearspan space than Legacy’s previous plant, the new building enables workers to operate more efficiently, particularly when manufacturing larger polyethylene or PVC fabric panels, company officials explained. The set-up allows for greater production capacity and, in turn, faster deliveries of completed tension fabric structures to customers.
Featuring a 40-foot skylight and R-30 insulation for increased energy efficiency, the plant is fully climate controlled to eliminate the temperature and humidity fluctuations that can affect the quality of fabric welds, officials noted. Legacy has also added state-of-the-art equipment — including a laser-guided welding system — to aid in producing fabric panels for larger structures. This is especially advantageous when manufacturing panels for fabric buildings with widths of more than 200 feet.
