In areas vulnerable to hurricanes, such as Florida, Texas and Louisiana, water damage and flying debris from hurricane force winds can wreak havoc on the field equipment throughout all the utilities markets. It is vital to protect the country’s resources with stronger, reinforced buildings in order to withstand future events.
“A hurricane’s destruction can be far reaching. Rebuilding is often a daunting and hugely expensive undertaking that can take years to complete if not managed properly.” says Tracy Switzer, President of Shelter Works. “As we come out of hurricane season, cities everywhere are assessing the damage and investigating ways to adequately protect these assets going forward. We’ve solved this problem for our clients by producing cost effective fiberglass enclosures that are pound-for-pound stronger than steel and come ready to install within one day. Using our proprietary FiberBeam™ technology, we are able to safeguard critical field equipment against all types of severe environmental conditions,” continues Switzer.
