Lighting 101 With Dana
Whether its explosion proofing, lack of electricity or a desire for energy efficiency, here at Shelter Works we offer several interior and exterior lighting options to meet your needs. We spoke with our resident sales guru and lighting specialist, Dana Woodall, to get the basics of what you can expect when lighting a Shelter Works building.

If you are in a situation where you do not have access to electricity, such as remote gas equipment, skylights are one option for you. They are an inexpensive way to illuminate the inside of a shelter during daylight hours. They provide enough light to move around equipment without bumping into it and are a cost effective lighting option when high visibility is not an issue. Because our skylights are integrated during the manufacturing process they are seamless and will not leak.
Low Maintenance Fiberglass Shelters
In North Carolina, there's a water filtration station that serves the citizens of Moore County. The fiberglass shelters that protect the gas lifters there needed to be updated. Unfortunately, the molds for the previous shelters had worn out, so they turned to Shelter Works to upgrade their critical field equipment protection.
John Russ, a buyer for Walker Process Equipment explains, "Shelter Works fiberglass shelters are absolutely top-of-the-line, and they'll build anything you want! They are lightweight and won't rust out, so they will last for very long time."
Because each one is custom designed, they were able to specify skylights that allow natural light to pour into the shelter, making it bright enough to service the equipment without having electrical lights. This lowers the overall cost of maintaining the equipment and saves money. In addition, they specified doors on the sides that allow multiple access points to the equipment. All of this creates a cost-effective shelter that requires virtually no maintenance and will last for decades.
