Aviation IndustryFAA Shelters That Meet Your Exact Needs
Our field equipment shelters are patterned with the alternating FAA Orange and White colors outlined in the IACO’s Aerodrome Standards. They are designed to meet airfield frangibility requirements while maintaining our 25-year warranty and living up to our “Built for Life” motto.
These colors come from the same gelcoats we use in all our shelters. The gelcoat is molecularly bonded during the production process so there will be no chipping, flaking, peeling, or cracking of the color.

Designing a building that will limit damage to an aircraft while still being strong enough to withstand hurricane-force winds is no easy task.
It certainly can’t be accomplished with shelters made from concrete or metal and while some wood construction may work, wood shelters are typically weaker and require significantly more maintenance than fiberglass shelters.
At Shelter Works, we have developed a solution. Our shelters are strong enough to withstand the rigors of the runway while being “crushable” enough to meet FAA frangibility standards.
Shelter Works’ proprietary wall construction does not utilize metal framing therefore reducing radio frequency interference. Our prefabricated fiberglass buildings can be constructed to accommodate multiple frequencies to help maximize signal reach and reception. Insulating materials can be increased for higher R-values while not diminishing RF Transparency.
