Customized to Client Specifications
These fiberglass enclosures can be small (perhaps 6’ x 6’), sometimes an 8’ x 8’ and often a larger 10’ x 12′ size. Every analyzer shelter is customized to the client’s specifications, following each state’s requirements for wind loads, seismic loads, etc. Every analyzer shelter has an explosion proof electrical package for the many electronics inevitably included in the building. The engineers in each area need to follow whatever the state-mandated specifications are, and the flexibility of the Shelter Works equipment shelter makes that easy to accommodate.
Meeting State Requirements
“They are one of the few equipment shelter manufacturers that can meet state label requirements. In fact, they are currently the only fiberglass manufacturer that is approved in Ohio, which is very stringent in their requirements.“ Schnebelen continued, “We’ve been with Shelter Works since the inception of the company, and we love the fact that we can customize these prefabricated equipment shelters exactly as needed.”
“Additionally, their PE drawings are complete and very thorough, which makes our projects go more smoothly. It’s important to get it right, with equipment that can include gas analyzers to monitor the measuring componentry installed inside the pipe lines. This equipment is necessary for the proper operation of these processes for the natural gas industry, and this equipment needs to be properly protected.”
Another advantage of these equipment shelters are that they are much more transportable than the metal alternatives that some engineers consider. That means that the prefabricated equipment shelters (which arrive fully constructed) can be stored in a storage yard and then moved to the final site at a time that is convenient for the construction crews.
