How Shelter Works’ R-Values Protect Against Extreme Conditions
Shelter Works buildings are specified for some of the coldest places on the planet. This video shows:
- A Chicago-area headworks bar screen facility that cannot be allowed to freeze, even in the dead of winter
- A telecom building on top of a downtown Chicago rooftop which experiences brutal wind loads and snow loads in the Windy City
- A shelter that protects natural gas equipment high up in the Rocky Mountains (above 6000 feet) where there are heavy snow loads (it’s heated inside to about 70° but you will notice that it is insulated so well that the snow didn’t even melt off the top!)
- A telecom shelter that is located 10 miles outside of Anchorage, Alaska, a place that sustains several weeks of -20° temperatures and up to 2 to 3 feet of snow fall per day
- A microwave repeater station for an area just south of the Arctic Circle in James Bay which requires R-39 insulation.
When your field equipment requires additional protection from extreme elements, let shelter works engineer the perfect solution for you
