|Innovative Containment Flooring Solution For Fiberglass Shelter Building
Prominent Fluid Controls asked Shelter Works to create several buildings that were specified with containment floors. These 8' by 18' field equipment protection shelters were designed to protect a three-pump polymer solution feed skid. The containment floor, together with the grid flooring on top of it, minimize safety concerns and provide containment in the event of a leak or piping failure. "These units are pumping cationic and anionic liquid polymers, which are as slippery substances as you'll ever find. It presents a big safety concern," explained Kevin Pointer, Project Manager for Prominent Fluid Controls.
The innovators at Shelter Work seamlessly integrated a fiberglass emergency spill containment basin system with an elevated fiberglass grid flooring that would allow 550 gallons of liquid to be contained, so workers could safely continue to walk on the fiberglass grid flooring. Pointer went on to say, "We didn't even know that Shelter Works could offer this type of a solution, so we were delighted. It was a great experience for us-from submittal packages right through installation, Shelter Works always gives us what we need!"

Long-Lasting and Customized Equipment Protection For Irregular Elevations
The Village of Williamsburg, OH Waste Water Treatment Plant needed two fiberglass shelters to protect a grit washer and mechanical bar screen. The bar screen enclosure footprint had to sit on an existing concrete slab poured at two different elevations with an 18 inch difference in height. Roughly half the building would sit up on the higher portion. The grit washer enclosure was installed on a new concrete foundation with two elevations. One doorway would need to be dropped down below the bottom of the walls into a 10-inch-deep notch in the concrete because they needed access to the equipment at both the higher and lower elevations.

Double Doors Added In Field
Recently Shelter Works provided a building to cover a sewage lift station in Johnson City, TN. Everyone was delighted with the building. However, after installing the building over the pump package, it was determined that it would be advantageous to have another set of double doors to for additional access to the control panel inside.
This presented a challenge to client, contractor and engineer. The building was already "in service" and could not be sent back to the factory. Needless to say, they did not want ...
