An Overview on Prefabricated Shelters

What is a prefabricated shelter?

A shelter provides an enclosed space that offers protection for people or equipment. They consist of a frame, ceiling and roof, glazing/windows, and an entryway. At Shelters Direct, we offer prefabricated steel and aluminum shelters, both of which offer durable and rugged protection for your facility. Prefabricated can mean a variety of things, but when referring to shelters it means that the product is fabricated and assembled in our factory to ensure proper fit and form. However, the shelter is then disassembled and shipped to the customer knocked down to be assembled on site. This method aids in protecting the shelter when it is delivered to the end-user. It is also more cost-effective.

Shelters can be customized with a variety of color finishes and roof designs to suit the aesthetic of the facility in which they will be installed. Ventilation space can be incorporated as needed.

There are many applications in which a prefabricated shelter is beneficial. Some of the most common uses for shelters include bus waiting areas, bike shelters, equipment protection, and smoking shelters.
