Fabric Shelters for Weather Events: La Niña


Fabric Dome Shelter Protecting Mining and ConstructionAssets


Are you finding it hard to keep your equipment and people dry from the rain?
Since September 2020, Australia has been experiencing a La Niña weather event. This has caused havoc for people across Australia, particularly those living in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. It has bought continual rain and flooding, creating a level of uncertainty on when and who will be effected and what the impact will be. As a result, many businesses are looking for all-weather solutions, so they are able to continue working even when the weather is not on their side. Fabric shelters are a cost effective way to provide protection from the elements for a variety of applications, including construction sites, mining operations and industrial uses.

La Niña in Australia and its Effects?

Australia is experiencing one of the strongest La Niña’s in decades. La Niña is a weather phenomenon that is characterised by cooler than average waters in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean. This weather event has global implications, but in Australia it typically means increased rainfall along the east coast which has caused continuous rain and flooding in many parts of Australia. As a result of the extreme weather conditions, thousands of homes have been damaged, equipment have been destroyed and lives have been lost. This highlights the importance of needing to protect people and assets from these extreme weather events.

How does This Weather Event Effect Australian Businesses?

La Niña has been wreaking havoc on businesses all across Australia. From increased downtime to equipment and stock damage, companies are struggling to keep up. This has been a trying time for many businesses, large and small.

Construction companies often have to delay their projects during wet weather, and La Niña has been making it more and more difficult to work in these conditions. Despite this, workers can still use fabric shelters on construction sites as maintenance workshops, precast facilities, and onsite manufacturing and assembly areas, allowing them to continue working even when the weather isn’t ideal.
Many industrial activities and storage facilities require a shelter of some kind to protect against the elements. With raw materials already in short supply, La Niña is only likely to make the shortage worse, especially with materials that can’t get wet. Activities such as sandblasting and painting, equipment maintenance and manufacturing can all be adversely affected by severe weather conditions like high winds and rain.

Protecting Your Assets During La Niña

Fabric buildings provide many benefits over traditional structures, including the ability to be quickly and easily assembled without the need for specialised equipment or trades. They are also more durable than traditional structures, with the fabric able to withstand high winds and heavy rain. Fabric buildings are an excellent option for businesses looking to protect their assets from the extreme weather conditions that La Niña brings.
The fabric used in Allshelter Fabric Dome Shelters is high density polyethylene, which is known to perform well in extreme weather conditions. The steel used in the shelter’s construction is also key to its strength and ability to resist damage from external forces. With the arch design perfected, Allshelter Fabric Shelters are able to withstand the worst weather conditions, and provide a weatherproof solution for businesses looking to protect their assets.
