  • Strong

    The composite materials in our shelters ensure the highest strength to weight ratio. Pound for pound, these structures are stronger than steel.

  • Lightweight

    Fiberglass is often specified because it is lightweight. Our structures can be put on rooftops or other places where weight limitations are critical factors. It’s possible that the building you specify could be 30% lighter than a comparable metal structure or 80% lighter than the same type of concrete enclosure.

  • Energy-Efficient

    Shelter works unique fiber beam construction ensures that our buildings are energy-efficient, with no metal or wood to transfer extreme outside temperatures into the enclosure.

  • Carries a 25-Year Warranty
