Problem: J.J. McGuire, a general contractor servicing many industries, needed an exterior control room for one of their large automotive clients. The problem was the equipment to be housed outside was already in place.
The specifics of this particular building required some creative thinking. To provide a cost effective solution, it was determined that by simply customizing a relatively standard 6′ x12′ ProPart Modular Smoke Shelter, that it would provide the required protection from the elements. The large glass panels provided just the right amount of combined protection along with increased visibility from within the welded tubular structure.
Just like a standard Smoke Shelter, the unit was constructed without a floor. The oversized equipment that it was to protect was already in place at the client location, so all that was required was to crane the enclosure into place from above. The small glass enclosure, like all similar ProPart Modular smoke shelters, is lightweight and easy to relocate should needs change. Additionally, significant cost savings were realized by using the standard components used in Smoke Shelter construction.

Welded tubular aluminum frame construction
Pre-painted and pre-glazed
Tempered Safety Glass is standard
