In recent months, we've explored the differences between new and used telecommunications shelters and certain advantages each option provides.
Some of these advantages included focusing on used telecom shelters being less expensive with full restoration options (1), while new telecom shelters are capable of being customized for unique specifications (2).
Some of our clients faced the same challenges this year and our team was able to successfully provide solutions based on the specific project requirements. Here are a few examples.

Purchasing a new or used concrete shelter is the best telecom solution for housing any kind of telecom power equipment, generators or battery back ups that keep your business online 24 hours a day.
New Concrete Shelters
By purchasing a new shelter, you have the option of customizing it to unique specifications including fabricating a structure at a specific size to meet your exact needs. This is ideal for the consumer in a situation where specific size limitations are key and you can't find that perfect shelter in the current marketplace, especially with limited options in 2017.
New shelters are built for strength and can withstand impact, harsh weather conditions and minimum load bearing which provides unsurpassed strength. Weather conditions include up to 150 mph winds and flying debris. Worried about insects or weather climates ruining your investment? Boring insects, mold, mildew and erosion are no match for concrete shelters.
Telecom shelters, normally precast concrete shelters, are designed for ground-mounted telecommunications and data equipment protection. They are built to last long-term and protect vital telecom equipment from any damage.
Most concrete shelters typically include structural precast concrete, insulation, FRP walls and ceilings, tile floor, cable racking, equipment racking, grounding, alarming, electrical build out and custom equipment integration for specific power equipment.
New vs. Used Shelters
Used telecom shelters offer the same quality and strength of a new concrete shelter, are considerably less expensive and remain just as customizable. If you are looking for a way to cut costs on your upcoming telecom project, surplus shelters can be provided as-is or fully restored to your own liking.
Restored shelters undergo rigorous inspection and specific maintenance. All shelters can be customized to your liking including custom generators, racking and fire suppression options. These key components keep your necessary equipment running 24/7, avoiding any down time.
