As you drive through town, there is a good chance that you have seen prefab shelters along the way without realizing what they are or how they benefit people. Also referred to as factory-built or pre-engineered enclosures, these heavy-duty structures work perfectly to protect people and equipment from harsh elements.
Prefabricated shelters can be designed specifically for your needs based on where you live and the type of protection you require. They help keep people and equipment out of the rain, snow, wind, and hot sun. If preferred, you can enhance your new shelter with features like way-finding signage, tinted or frosted glass, unique roof treatments, paint colors, and more.
In addition, once your customized prefab shelter is complete and shipped to your location, there is no assembly or on-site labor required. With a rugged design and construction of welded steel, a B.I.G. engineered shelter is sturdy, durable, and easy to install. The only thing you may need after delivery is a forklift to place it on top of a pre-poured concrete slab.
After you've decided that a prefabricated shelter is what you need, you can choose a basic design or have something elaborate created for you. Our manufacturer can add various components to make it more comfortable, including heat, lighting, cooling, and other options. If your facility has unique architectural features, you can incorporate those into your design as well to complement the surrounding area.
A prefab shelter serves many purposes beyond protecting people and equipment. They're perfect for lots with automated parking machines, as they provide coverage for customers and keep tickets dry. People who like taking smoke breaks love these shelters too. In today's world, smokers have limited options, and enclosures provide a place to go that prevents smoke from drifting and offending nonsmokers.
Prefabricated shelters are commonly placed along bus lines, as well. People often face inclement weather or delays and need a safe and comfortable place to sit or stand while waiting for public transportation. You can also find them at train stations, airports, or anywhere shuttle service is available to give people an alternative area to wait for departure.
