TELECOMMUNICATIONS SHELTERS are
versatile, lightweight structures that provide
ease in transport and placement. They can be
moved with a forklift
instead of a crane, or with a flatbed truck,
a C-140 or a helicopter. ISPI
SHELTERS have superior structural and thermal
characteristics that allow for temperature and humidity
control at minimal cost, especially at remote sites.
They are made to withstand gale force winds, extremes
of temperature, earthquakes, snow or even a tsunami.
Their ease of transport makes them ideal for remote,
vault, mountaintop, or high-rise installations.

today's outdoor communications equipment must be prepared
for whatever nature unleashes. ISPI SHELTERS are
in service in harsh climates all over the world.
Our shelters and generators can be easily installed

made polymer concrete pads providing significant

as a barn or a windmill with custom paint or aggregate.

modular design of ISPI SHELTERS allows
for expansion or reduction in footprint size. They are
easily stacked for expansion in any configuration imaginable.
Individual units feature molded, seamless construction
inside and out. Simply stated, they are like oversized,

investment in electronics from prying eyes, curious wildlife
and environmental and other invasive forces. Like the

to 25 years.
