COMMON GLAZING OPTIONS

Double-Pane Tempered Glass

DOUBLE-PANE TEMPERED GLASS

This is the most cost-effective window typically specified for its enhanced safety and good insulating properties. Standard sizes include 15″ x 15″ and 22″ x 36", but custom sizes are available.

Safety-Rated Wire Mesh Glass

SAFETY-RATED WIRE MESH GLASS

This type of reinforced window provides additional protection and might be specified to discourage vandalism, protect the integrity of the window during hurricanes or to protect against flying debris caused by airplane jet wash on active runways.

Plexiglass or Lexan

PLEXIGLAS OR LEXAN

For many of our customers, our corrosive-resistant, fiberglass buildings are chosen because they need to protect equipment in aggressive chemical environments. For these types of applications, chemicals could possibly etch glass, reducing opacity and therefore visibility. To combat this, we use either Plexiglas® or Lexan® for these types of situations.

Note: In our experience, Lexan may yellow in the sun over time

Fire-Rated Glass

FIRE-RATED GLASS

The FAA buildings we create for use on airstrips around the country require glass with a 45 minute fire rating. Let us know what your requirements are, and we’ll be happy to meet your individual needs.

Skylights

Skylights

Skylights are another option for providing natural light to the interior of the shelter that eliminate the possibility of passers-by seeing into the shelter. 

Shelter Works shelters can accommodate virtually any size skylight placed anywhere in the roof and feature our guaranteed leak-proof construction.
