Shelter Company Makes a Name In The Marine Industry



With the ability to supply clear span temporary structures up to 150′ wide, Poly-Steel and Weather Block Shelters has established a worldwide reputation for providing durable alternatives to traditional buildings. The shelters boast long life, low cost and portability, making them a perfect choice for boatyards seeking weather protection, containment or storage solutions.

Established in 1979, the successful company was purchased from avid boater Stanley Huddleston in January 2003 by Patty and Charly Smail. “We’ve known Stanley for 10 years, and watched the business grow. We have a lot of new ideas, ranging from design innovation to new marketing opportunities, all geared to improve our product and service to the customer. We bring a lot of business and engineering experience to the table, and are excited about the future.”

Constructed of galvanized steel frames covered with reinforced vinyl fabric, the shelter frames have an 80 year lifespan, while the covers last from 5-25 years, depending on the fabric. The shelters are manufactured in components and assembled on the customer’s site. And, they are usually delivered in 4-6 weeks.

Small shelters can be assembled in hours, and larger units can be erected in just a few days. Building permits are usually not required.
