Insulated fabric buildings
Insulated halls are based on the standard WiikHall, and can be employed for a range of different uses. Insulated halls are equipped with an insulating sheet that makes all the differences and provides protection from cold surroundings. The result is a hall that will keep both people and goods warm.
The sandwich principle
The classic WiikHall’s insulating properties are the result of our sandwich system – an airtight space between two layers of sheets that also includes an insulation mat. The sheet is supplied in two thicknesses, giving U-values of 0.36 and 0.76. The insulation sheet lies on the outside of the steel structure, covering it like a duvet. The sheet quality is the same as that used on ordinary halls; the outer layer is 900g and the inner layer is 650g.
Rooms that provide warmth
These insulating properties have made the WiikHall a popular choice for use as sports halls, workshop halls, warm storage halls or production hall. The additional equipment means that the area of use can be further expanded and that the WiikHall can be an inexpensive alternative to a permanent building – yet offering the same or similar properties.
The sheeting is manufactured in Europe and has undergone flammability testing in accordance with European standards with good test results. The sheeting has one of the highest levels of tear and stretch strengths on the market and is supplied with a five-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
O.B.Wiik’s fabric covered buildings with hot-dip galvanised steel frames are dimensioned in accordance with Norwegian and EU standards.

Seemingly, an O.B.Wiik fabric covered building looks the same regardless of its location. We adapt our solid basic structure to local climate conditions.
The fabric covered building are anchored with base plates on most surfaces. In cooperation with the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, O.B.Wiik has carried tests to calculate the optimal use of tent pegs for direct anchoring in fields. If there is any uncertainty about the level of anchorage in the ground, we conduct on-site tests.
