Dome Shelter Installation: Industrial Sites


Fully enclosed fabric shelters used at an industrial site.

With such a large clientele under each segment of the industrial sector, it would be wrong not to say they are a major contributor to today’s world. Fabric dome shelter installations empower companies within the industrial sector to continue to expand and grow.

Dome Shelter Installation for Industrial Sites

With the industrial sector continuously growing, there is no time for downtime. If extra space is needed, conventional buildings such as steel-clad sheds can take months if not a year to build. In contrast to traditional buildings, fabric shelters boast significantly shorter lead times. Depending on size, our container domes offer a 48-hour guaranteed dispatch and quick installation. A container dome shelter installation is much more cost-effective. Therefore, this enables companies to continue working whilst the shelter is getting installed, reducing the overall downtime.

The majority of our fabric dome shelters are delivered in compact kit form with step-by-step installation instructions. Hence, the carbon footprint is dramatically reduced. This not only makes it a better solution for the environment but also lowers your costs.


What are the Needs of an Industrial Workplace

Every company possesses unique shelter needs, and the flexible nature of container dome shelters allows designing for various versatile uses, including:

  • Extra warehouse & storage
  • Equipment & machinery storage
  • Sandblasting & painting
  • Maintenance shed
  • Bulky goods storage
  • Manufacturing shops

Along with our extensive fabric shelter range, we offer a variety of accessories, allowing you to truly make the shelter your own. Our endwalls provide the ability to fill in one end of the shelter or partially enclose your shelter, providing extra protection from dust, rain and sunlight. Accessories such as doors give industrial companies the option to fully enclose their fabric shelter, allowing for maximum protection and security of their assets.


The Dome Shelter Installation Process

Fabric shelters are generally packaged and delivered in a kit form with clear step-by-step instructions for a simple shelter installation. The installation of fabric shelters can vary depending on the size and type of shelter, as well as the site conditions. However, the general steps involved in the installation process are as follows:

  1. Site Preparation: The installation site needs to be prepared before the fabric shelter is installed. This may include clearing the site of any debris or obstacles and ensuring the ground is level.
  2. Foundation Preparation: Depending on the size and type of fabric shelter, the foundations required can vary. Options like piers, concrete slabs, and ballast allow you to tailor the hold-down of your fabric shelter to meet your specific needs.
  3. Assembly of the Frame: The frames of fully engineered fabric shelters are generally made of high-grade steel such as C350 and C450, and are assembled on-site. The frame is designed to be easy to assemble and disassemble with bolt-together sections.
  4. Installation of the Fabric Cover: Once the frame is in place, the fabric cover is installed. Typically, manufacturers construct the fabric cover from durable, waterproof materials like polyethylene fabric. They then tension it tightly and secure it to the frame using devices like ratchet straps.

Overall, installing fabric shelters is relatively straightforward and can happen relatively quick, depending on the shelter’s size and complexity

How can Industrial Sites Benefit from Relocatable Shelters?

Extensive renovations to traditional steel-clad buildings are a costly move, and with many companies continuing to grow, we can never guarantee how long companies will stay in one location. Fabric shelters can be dismantled and reinstalled at different locations, offering an excellent solution for companies uncertain about permanent locations.

Being classed as a temporary or semi-permanent shelter, container dome shelters benefit changing industrial sites, allowing for flexibility in changing operational needs or site requirements. This can be especially beneficial for temporary or seasonal operations.


Why Choosing to Install a Relocatable Shelter For Your Changing Workplace is a Sustainable Option?

With sustainable solutions becoming a much bigger part of today’s world and changing the way we think, making the right decision about your shelter needs is important. Fabric shelters enable industrial organisations to reuse them at various locations and for different purposes. Fabric shelters can be extended using joining strips or made smaller by separating them into units. This provides a sustainable option for uncertain future needs, depending on the mounting device and container configuration
