Universal Fabric Structures specialises in the design, manufacture, and fitting of quality pre-engineered fabric structures for multi-purpose collecting, heavy equipment covers, storage and general mining shelter applications.

Designed employing a light structural frame covered with high strength surface cladding, UFS mining shelters provide an cost-effective, simple to install alternative to standard structuresfor permanent or semi-permanent applications.


UFS mining shelters include the Rapid-Span, Supa-Span, and Alu-Span product offering, these structures are all simply disassembled and movable making them good for interim facilities with resale options.

easy Installation

UFS prefabricated mining shelters are designed for fast, low cost installation.


Quality Structural Frame

The backbone of a UFS mining shelter is a well-engineered structural framing system with the best corrosion protection system available.

easy Foundations

Rapid-Span structures can sometimes be installed with relocatable foundations. Where concrete is needed, the structural engineering of UFS mining shelters generally make allowance for lower foundation costs.

durable Translucent Fabrics

UFS uses high strength, heavy weight, coated fire retardant fabrics from proved suppliers, with lifespans of twenty – 40 years. Using white see though fabrics allows for a well-lit, energy efficient, interior work environment that results in significant reduction of operating costs.

Efficient Space function

UFS truss frames on the Alu-Span and S-Span series allows for cost effective clear span space, with a variety of span profile shapes and door system options to best accommodate heavy machinery storage and warehousing requirements.

Suitable for hard Sites

The structural steel design and flexible tensile surfaces of UFS mining shelters allows installation on uneven or sloping sites.

Low upkeep

The aggregate of top of the range, corrosion resistant structural frames and tough, coated surfaces ensure a long, low maintenance life for UFS mining shelters.


UFS designs and manufactures engineered mining shelters of the highest quality. Many of our design features are unique to UFS. From start to finish, quality is the baseline for each part of the UFS process.

Environmental Control

The membrane cladding of a fully enclosed UFS mining shelter is steadily sealed to offer a weather-tight shell. Structures can be effectively insulated, heated, or air conditioned as required.

The UFS mining shelter product range include the easy-to-erect Rapid-Span structures ( 5-16 m wide ), light weight Alu-Span structures ( 15 50 m wide ), and our completely customizable, clear span Supa-Span series ( 30-97 ) m wide. The Alu-Span series is available for lease thru our AllSite division ( ). All other structures are available for sale only.
