Why We Use Fiberglass For Our Shelters

Our customers have experienced great results by switching from brick, steel, wood, concrete or cinder block. In fact, some of the nation’s top utility companies have bought hundreds of fiberglass shelters from us. Here’s why:

  • Low Cost of Ownership

    Highest lifetime value–longer lasting, lower maintenance, easily repaired
  • Performs in virtually any environment

    Durability unchanged even in extreme temperatures, hurricane winds, Alaskan snow loads, coastal climates and corrosive environments
  • Maintenance-Free

    Aesthetically pleasing structures won’t corrode, rot, rust or decay
  • completely Customizable

    Get EXACTLY what you need; customize the size, color, features and options of our buildings to meet all your special requirements.

  • Resilient

    Resists damage from impact, chemicals, water, and UV rays

  • Ultra-strong

    Pound for pound stronger than steel, fiberglass can be designed to any strength requirement desired

  • Super-light

    Composite materials have the highest strength to weight ratio structures known to man

  • Energy Efficient

    Fiberglass buildings with an encapsulated foam core are very energy efficient, with no metal or wood structural members to transfer extreme outside temperatures into the building.

Comparing Shelter Works To Other Equipment Shelters

Shelter Works equipment protection is often considered alongside steel, aluminum or concrete structures.  How do you know which one is best suited for your application?  These handy comparison charts looks at the differences between our buildings, steel and aluminum equipment buildings and concrete buildings. If you are considering this for your next project, make sure you check out this chart first!
