Telecom Lightweight

LIGHTWEIGHT

Shelter Works fiberglass field equipment shelters are ultra-light weight yet offer superior flexural strength.  Weighing 70% less than steel and 25% less than aluminum, our shelters with FiberBeam™ Technology are pound for pound stronger than steel.  They are an ideal solution for applications that have weight restrictions, including roof-top installations, or where transportation costs can be cost prohibitive for heavier alternatives.

Telecom RF Transparent

RF TRANSPARENT

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.

Telecom Tamper Resistant

TAMPER RESISTANT

Our seamless corners and roofs combined with the inherent structural strength of fiberglass, provide a secure, tamper-resistant environment to house critical field equipment.
