In many cases, telecom infrastructure needs to be deployed in hard-to-reach areas. Shelter Works telecom shelters 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.

Shelter Works fiberglass telecom 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.

Shelter Works’ proprietary wall construction does not utilize metal framing therefore reducing radio frequency interference. Our prefabricated telecom 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.

Our telecom shelters are typically placed in remote or environmentally challenging locations, where they shield sensitive electronic equipment from the elements and potential security threats.

And unlike traditional building materials, fiberglass does not rust, corrode, or degrade over time, making it ideal for long-term use in challenging outdoor environments.
