Press Release 2005 – SHELTER STRUCTURES AWARDED 2 BIDS FROM THE US NAVY (September, 2005)


Stuart, FL – Shelter Structures, Inc, leading designer and manufacturer of custom tensioned fabric buildings, recently received two awards totaling $1.499MM from the US Navy. 18 aircraft hangars will be built and installed at both NAS Kingsville, TX and NAS Meridian, MS. The project will provide weather protection for Navy T-45 training aircraft.

Fabric covered steel buildings make ideal aircraft hangars, as they prolong the life of the aircraft by minimizing hail damage and block 85% of the sun�s rays, which can cause premature weather damage to the aircraft. Fabric allows natural light, which significantly reduces utility consumption.

The hangars will be engineered to withstand wind gusts of up to 130 mph, using heavy duty galvanized steel ribs and 28 oz coated vinyl fabric. Shelter Structures obtained the job through innovative design techniques, such as the elimination of ground rails, which can collect trash and cause a trip hazards. Work will commence in January 2006 and be completed by June 2006.
