There are as many different types of prefab shelters available as there are uses for these innovative and simple structures. From outside waiting areas through to protected office space within a large industrial environment, there are numerous different types of prefab shelters available to suit all purposes. Shelters are amongst the most functional buildings that you can possibly construct, generally they are produced with no frills at all, and aside from the actual construction of the unit, there is very little maintenance required for them. The simplicity of the structures is one of their main advantages, as they can be placed according to needs with no real need for infrastructure items such as power or water.
One of the most common uses for a prefab shelter is as a security shack. By providing a number of shelters around your workplace, you give your guards a place to wait when they are making their rounds at night. Provided that the prefab shelters are placed well apart and with commanding views of the surrounding area, they provide a means for security guards to better control the area that they are responsible for.
Different sizes of prefabricated shelter are available to meet the needs that you have in mind. The shelters are designed to be modular in construction, and as such can be adapted for whatever purpose you require them for. A tiny one man prefab shelter can be a ticket booth, security guard stand, a kiosk, an information booth, or anything else that it needs to be with just a few simple additions such as a shelf and window, or a connection to the gate system.
Larger shelters are equally flexible in their usage, and again can be adapted for a huge variety of uses. Popular options such as smoking shelters and bus shelters can be the same in design and construction, but serve completely different purposes. The benefit of using prefab shelters for all of these purposes is that the structures can be completely assembled on site in a matter of just a few hours. Thanks to a lightweight aluminum frame and high quality panels made of either glass or fiberglass reinforced plastic, you get a structure that is completely resistant to weather.
Both the interior and exterior of a prefabricated shelter can be customized to your exact needs, with the provision of as many power supply sockets as you need being installed along with lighting, air conditioning, and phone services. You can use a high level shelter mounted on stilts as the hub of a security network, or the same basic building as an office unit within a factory. The only limit to what can be achieved with a single starting point is the range of different purposes that it can be used for.
Of course, the biggest advantage of any kind of prefab shelter is that it can be constructed incredibly quickly. Depending on the exact model you require, it will be either built from a number of different components, or bolted together as a framework, either way, all of the parts will be supplied fully finished and ready to use. Then, once the shelter has served its purpose in one location, it can be moved to another relatively simply and reconstructed there.
