The Mojave offers two temperature extremes. In the summer, the average temperature is 105° F, but there are times of the year when temperatures can push 125° F for several weeks in a row. In the winter, the temperatures can dip as low as 0° F depending on the elevation. In both seasons, the strong sun exposure makes UV rays an additional point of consideration when choosing proper field equipment protection. Shelter Works’ exterior gel coats offer a UV coating that provides exceptional protection from hydrolysis, temperature, oxidation, and UV radiation. Our gel coats are applied as part of the manufacturing process for a more even, overall coverage than secondary UV coats that are sprayed on after production. Plus, our proprietary FiberBeamTM construction for this particular shelter includes 1.5″ foam core that insulates and helps to retain equipment generated heat, protecting the pressure tank and electrical equipment from winter temperature lows.
The technician who commissioned the project noted, “We are very pleased with the shelter, as it met all our requirements. With its 25-year warranty, we expect it to last a long time and will definitely consider a Shelter Works fiberglass equipment building the next time we need one.”
