Why Allshelter?

Why Allshelter?

What makes Allshelter shelters superior

Allshelter shelters consist of high-strength polyethylene fabric, tensioned over a curved heavy-duty but lightweight steel framework to create a permanent yet relocatable structure offering protection in even the harshest conditions.

Strength in curves

Simple, strong and durable, arches have been used in buildings for thousands of years. Curved profiles have incredible strength and intrinsic ability to resist pressure from external forces.

That’s why curved steel was a central element in the development of Allshelter weather protection systems. They are designed and engineered to create extremely durable permanent and deployable structures in a large range of sizes that are well able to withstand wind, snow and gravitational loadings.

Allshelter has perfected the arch design so well that our tension fabric structures can weigh up to 50% less than other conventional structures and yet still have the equivalent strength. Not only is our tension fabric an effective roofing material for large spans, its lightweight nature, translucent and reflective properties, and environmental adaptability are an advantage in all our solutions.

Strength in steel

The Allshelter design has evolved through years of intensive designing and testing in parallel with being tried and proven in a diverse range of real-life applications.

Allshelter uses a sophisticated, yet simple, combination of high grade light weight steel frame members to cleverly absorb compression through its entire form. It distributes all forces onto its supports utilising the natural curve of the arch.
