Temporary maintenance buildings for trains and static machinery

For anyone outside the rail industry, the question of how temporary buildings can enable undercover maintenance on trains is of little consequence. For those who do need an answer to this question, it can be a problem because the cover needs to go over the railway track. Similarly, any large static machinery that needs protection will need the cover to be built over and around the equipment as the usual method of moving the machinery once the building is in place, isn’t an option.

This is where temporary maintenance buildings really come into their own, providing the installation technique of a clear-span tent, but the strength and durability of an industrial permanent building. Continue reading

Another option for temporary building roofing is insulated steel composite panels.
