The building withstood record snowfalls
In the late winter of 2019, Rema’s timber storage building constructed in 2017 was truly put to the test. The record-breaking 520-kilogram snow load that fell in one night made Rettenegger uneasy – but there was no need.
- The building withstood the load beautifully, and the snow slid off the slick roof by itself the next day, Rettenegger commends.
- We always dimension the frame structure of the Best-Hall for the purpose of the building and the conditions of the building site. In areas with snowfall, we use thicker steel profiles than usual, and the load is also accounted for in the special fastening of the fabric, allowing for both the fabric and the building to remain in place even under heavier loads, says Marcus Green, representative of Best-Hall in Austria, about the expertise based on over 40 years of experience.
Christian Rettenegger has been so satisfied with his choice that he, too, has become an advocate of fabric-covered buildings.
- These days, I recommend this affordable and quick storage solution even to my competitors, he laughs.
