There are many reasons why a canopy will benefit your facility.

Access control canopy

When you need to know who has been coming into and out of your facility, you need an access control point to monitor and manage the movement of employees and visitors. An entrance canopy provides the ideal solution. In the event that you manage a military facility, you’ll need to ensure that your entrance canopy meets all of the requirements of the UFC 4-022-01 Anti-Terror/Force Protection regulations for entry control facilities/ access control points. At Shelters Direct, we have extensive experience providing canopies for a variety of military uses that are in-line with all rules and regulations.

Vehicle and truck inspections

When you need a space for vehicle and truck inspections, you’ll want to protect the vehicles and drivers from inclement weather. Prefabricated canopies offers the ideal solution. Our canopies have been used at Fortune 500 secure facilities, the Department of Defense, and a variety of government facilities, so we have the experience needed to provide the right truck inspection canopy for your needs.
