Alaska Structures (, the leading provider of tension fabric buildings for mining operations, will be showcasing their cost-effective and energy-efficient building solutions at MINExpo 2016 this September 26-28 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company has been manufacturing highly durable fabric structures for commercial operations in rugged environments for more than 40 years. Their durable fabric buildings are uniquely suited to benefit mining operations, from storage facilities to workforce housing to equipment repair and maintenance buildings.

These fabric structures are engineered specifically for longevity and portability - two features that significantly reduce operating costs for mining companies. Since they are designed for both long-term and temporary use, mining organizations can rely on the stability and security of critical facilities, even in harsh climates and extreme weather. Alaska Structures fabric buildings are easy to setup and dismantle for transportation to new mines or different locations around the mining site, increasing efficiency and ensuring minimal downtime.

In addition to being cost-effective, Alaska Structures’ building solutions are designed to be highly energy efficient. The tensile fabric material is translucent, allowing natural light to illuminate the interior space, thus reducing energy costs for lighting in the daytime. The structures can be fitted with efficient systems for environmental control, HVAC and more for minimal energy consumption. Additionally, Alaska Structures offers supplementary insulation options that provide more energy-efficiency as well as greater protection from UV radiation.

Alaska Structures will be showcasing innovative fabric buildings for mining companies and their representatives in attendance at MINExpo 2016, from Booth #12150.
