Why We Can Offer A 25 Year Warranty

25 Year Warranty Shelter Works products are engineered specifically to meet the rigid requirements of industrial applications because they need to live up to the tagline: "Built for Life." We take a tremendous amount of care in designing the highest quality shelters, engineering each aspect, from the submittal drawings and the construction process to core materials, resin and gel coats, door construction and hardware, to final electrical wiring and installation. All of our shelters go through extensive quality checks to ensure that every shelter will perform to expectations.


"I have been working with fiberglass my whole life-even when I was a kid-so I'm very familiar with what it can do," Tracy Switzer, President of Shelter Works, explains. "We've been building shelters for decades. Over the years, we have perfected our processes and engineered our products to eliminate the challenges usually associated with shelters. Our exclusive FiberBeam™ technology is one example of this. By having FiberBeams incorporated every 12 inches that bond the inner and outer layers of fiberglass skin, our walls and roofs end up being pound for pound stronger than steel. This allows our buildings to withstand hurricane-force winds and hold incredible amounts of snow-high in the Rocky Mountains, in Canada and even Alaska. Because other fiberglass manufacturers don't go have this type of composite building system, they run into troubles with delamination but our FiberBeam construction eliminates that issue."

That's what Regis Yurcich recalls of the first of many Shelter Works fiberglass shelters purchased for one of the 171 waste water pump stations he's in charge of as Chief of Facilities for Newcastle County, Delaware.


We recently spoke with Yurcich to ask why they keep coming back to Shelter Works to protect their equipment. He explained, "Because they are so durable, these buildings last a long time, and the one-piece design is great. It makes installation so streamlined, and it's easy to move if necessary." At one point, they added additional flow for one of their facilities, which meant the wet well had to be increased in size (considerably). A new, larger structure had to be built, but rather than destroy the old building, they were able to reuse the structure elsewhere to protect some different equipment.
