Fiberglass Shelters

When working outdoors, it is important to have a storage building to protect your equipment. However, not all shelters will do the trick. For ultimate protection, choose one of TRACOM’s all-weather fiberglass shelters.

Buildings For Equipment Protection

Depending on where your company is located, you may experience extreme heat or cold, large amounts of snow or rain, or even strong winds. In some locations, you may face all of these weather conditions.

In order to fully protect your equipment, you need a fiberglass shelter that is:

TRACOM FRP shelters require virtually no maintenance and are not susceptible to decay or rust. Our FRP shelters and enclosures are a long-term investment, come with various features, and are used in multiple applications.

Durable Equipment Shelters

TRACOM’s all-weather shelters and enclosures are engineered in one piece with fiberglass reinforced plastic. The molded one-piece construction provides high strength at a low cost and eliminates the joints and seams that paneled constructed buildings have.

With all stainless steel hardware and no wood or metal structural members, TRACOM shelters are designed from the beginning for long life and extreme ruggedness, protecting your equipment against 135 mph wind, 40 PSF snow, and seismic zone 4 loadings.
