BVL Structure


The BVL structure type is a larger version of the BVE. The design originated in the UK and features a vertical sidewall.


The BVL features vertical lattice frame sidewalls and single or multiple lattice roof pitches per span. Multiple modules link together to provide sporting or warehousing structures of any length.


This allows for more interior clearance over the full width of the building, making it the ideal solution for sports buildings and warehouse systems.


The BVL can be adapted in a variety of ways. The leg height can be extended for additional interior clearance.
