Advantages of Steel Shelters by Par-Kut International Inc.


There are two main reasons to purchase a steel versus an aluminum shelter:

1. Architectural Options

Basic steel shelters from Par-Kut are professionally designed and built so your image will be professional as well. You can specify any single color for the shelter. Further architectural enhancements include tinted glass, window mullions, custom roof fascias and overhangs, factory installed signage, barrel vault roofs, gable or hip roofs, standing seam metal roofs, gutters, decorative finials and multicolor paint schemes.

In addition to appearance options, functional add-ons include benches,heaters, photo cell controlled lights, break resistant window glazing and even glass or plastic skylights.

2. Portability

Because of welded construction, the single unit strength allows for overhead lifting. This is especially convenient for offloading the steel shelter from the truck at delivery time. The durability afforded by welded steel also means the investment in the shelter will last years. The steel shelter can be moved with a fork-lift as well.

Additionally a portable steel shelter from Par-Kut can be moved when your site requirements change. If you have a dynamic site with constant change, the shelter can be built with a steel base with fork lift slots for even more portability. Solar lights are also available should the site be too far removed from an electrical supply wire.
