Several years ago Creative Tent International, Inc. worked with Erickson to provide a solution to store and maintain air cranes. Their fleet of helicopters is deployed all over the world to transport materials, aid in rescues, assist in a variety of construction uses and renovations. Fabric tension structures are just as portable as helicopters and provide protection as well as storage.
Sometimes permanent buildings are not feasible due to location, time, or money constraints. Relocatable, zero foot print, fabric tension structures are the next best alternative. As a result of our partnership with Erickson we realized the need for these types of structures in the aviation industry. We want to show you exactly how they can be used, the best climate and locations, innovative uses, and much more.
Much like the technology and engineering in aviation are constantly changing, the technology and engineering in fabric tension structures are also changing. For years, fabric tension structures have been used as “party tents” or industrial housing for the military during war time. However, the application of the Shasta Shelter® for aviation use is important to understand. Shasta Shelter® provides large volume, clear span structures with no internal columns or supports. They are configured based on your needs and can grow with you as your demand for storage or maintenance area increases.
The Shasta Shelter® series is a fully relocatable series of structures that are built to last many years. Our structures pack tight and small for the size and volume they give. Minimal containers and lighter shipping than comparable sized units allow you to ship valuable goods and more equipment. Shasta Shelter® is recognized for its quality, advanced engineering, field performance standards and price to value ratio. Equally, Shasta Shelter’s® interim relocatable shelters provide a smart and efficient solution to budget constraints – allowing quick start times.
All of our units are non-corrosive, mold resistant and are engineered to the International Building Code (IBC). They are designed to handle high wind and snow loads, are good for rugged and remote locations, and can be used for short or long-term projects. All of our structures are manufactured in the USA.
