DESIGN & CUSTOMISE YOUR SHELTERS

Make the smart choice for your site. Choose a SmartShelters custom designed shelter.

Do you have needs that don’t quite fit our extensive range of standard designs? Do you instead require a custom designed shelter?

Our experienced design team are always up for a challenge, but with an extensive history in shelter manufacture and design, the chances are that we’ll already have a similar concept on file! We’ve designed structures for customers as varied as boat manufacturers, conference centres, fire departments, film production companies and heritage societies, as well as endless shelters for our more regular customers in the agriculture and commercial sectors.

A BRAND YOU CAN TRUST

Delivering high quality designs for 100 years

At SmartShelters we believe our structures are set apart by our clever, intuitive and functional designs. Our shelters are also designed and built to rigorous standards, because we know that if you take short-cuts on site, you’re asking for trouble. AS/NZS 1170.2-2002 for those who know their codes.

We also engineer every design to suit its location. Whether you are a global mining operator or a local earthworks contractor, you can be confident that your SmartShelter has been designed to withstand high wind and snow conditions.

We can customise designs to suit your needs

A recent mine contract called for a minimum wind speed rating of 208km/h (58m/s), and SmartShelters’ professional installation team erected a container-mounted structure which fully complied with this specification. In fact, our shelters can be designed with wind ratings of up to 300kph!

All SmartShelters constructions feature structural grade Australian steel, fully galvanised to protect against corrosion. A typical hoop member is produced from galvanised steel, 100mm x 100mm x 4mm SHS.

ASK US A QUESTION ABOUT OUR CUSTOM DESIGNS

We know how much damage UV rays can cause to uncovered machinery, materials and equipment, particularly in Australasia, home to the most severe UV climate in the world. With this in mind, all SmartShelters structures utilise an ultra-UV stabilised PE fabric that has been developed for local conditions.

Large farm shed plans?

Do you require a large farm shed structure? The unique domed construction of a SmartShelter agri-shelter can be made in spans up to an incredible 50m. There is no limit on shelter length, and the height of the shelter can be made greater through the use of stacked shipping containers, poles or concrete blocks.

Pole shed plans?

There are a variety of ways to mount your SmartShelter, including ground-mount, container-mount, block-mount and more. But unlike the solid walls of our other options, pole-mount shelters allow for maximum ventilation, keeping the shelter cooler in summer while still offering protection from the elements. You can choose from either galvanised steel (C350 grade or higher) or timber (H5 tanalised high grade) mounting poles, as well as enjoying complete freedom in choosing your size and layout.
