The flexible building
A multi-purpose building is a popular solution – for understandable reasons. They can easily be expanded or reduced in size or moved, or hired out for other purposes in line with altered needs or issues that one often encounters in the public sector, or for sports clubs that wish to have a better source of income and improve finances.
In addition, the hall, a steel structure clad with steel plates, can be supplied with additional equipment that further expands the hall’s possible uses.
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.
