Choosing the right kind of shelter for your project is an important decision. The right shelter will help keep your workers safe, protect equipment and machinery from the elements, and be easy to assemble and dismantle. It should also be built to withstand the toughest weather conditions, whether you’re working in extreme heat, cold, cyclone-prone areas or anywhere else.

The wrong shelter can impact your productivity and costs in a number of ways, so it’s important to get it right. When it comes to choosing a shelter, there can be an overwhelming array of options, including different materials and designs, which can make it difficult to know what to choose. A fabric shelter can be the perfect choice for many projects, for a number of reasons. Here are four of them:

1. Cost
Staying within budget is important for any project and a fabric shelter can help you keep your costs low while still providing you with the high level of protection you need to avoid expensive damage or reduced staff productivity in adverse weather. The right shelter can help you save costs in a number of different ways, by protecting machinery and reducing the need for expensive repairs, keeping staff safe, and avoiding injuries or health problems, which could lead to reduced productivity and downtime.

2. Flexibility
Fabric shelters are uniquely flexible and can be put to a wide range of uses. This means that you can avoid having to install different shelters for different purposes. Whether you are looking for a shelter for a work area, storage purposes, an aircraft hangar, or to keep machinery protected, a fabric shelter offers the flexibility and versatility to be put to a range of different uses. Fabric shelters can also be installed and removed quickly, so you can adjust them to the changing requirements of your project.

3. Mobility
If your project has multiple locations, you don’t want to waste money paying for a permanent shelter at each location. With fabric shelters you don’t have to as they are easy to dismantle and reassemble in different locations, and some can even be towed between sites for the ultimate in mobility and convenience. Instead of paying for shelters at different sites, you can save costs by moving the same shelter wherever you go. All our shelters come with full assembly instructions so you can install them and take them down at your convenience and in your timeframe.

4. Efficiency
Reduced costs and hassle don’t mean reduced protection. Fabric shelters are highly effective, and at Allshelter, ours are built to local safety standards, including wind codes. This means that there’s no need to compromise on efficiency to save costs. You can be confident that your workers will be protected from the elements and your productivity can remain high no matter what the weather or location. Fabric shelters can also help you be more efficient with your resources, by making the most of natural light and keeping the need for artificial lighting to a minimum. The fabric lets sunlight through during the day, and at night, the curved shape allows for the maximum distribution of overhead lighting for the ultimate in energy efficiency.

Fabric shelters can be used in a number of different environments, for a range of different uses. To find out more about Allshelter’s fabric shelters and discuss your project needs, please contact our office today.
