DomeShelter™ Shipping Container Sheds; Safety, Reliability and Quality
By Mark McEwen- Product Design &
Drafting Coordinator, DomeShelter Australia
There used to be a saying in the IT industry that “you’ll never get fired for using Microsoft.”. You could take a risk on some low-cost importer from China and save a little, but if anything goes wrong, you will have to answer why you didn’t opt for guaranteed reliable old Microsoft.
In the mining and industrial sector, safety is paramount, in fact the number one consideration in any purchase ahead of performance and price. If it’s not guaranteed safe, nothing else matters.
DomeShelter Australia never pretends to be in the same league as Microsoft, but as a leader in the Fabric Structure industry, we have become synonymous with reliability, quality, and safety. We have rescued many companies who have had their “Microsoft” moment and regretted a buying decision based on just price. In many instances good insurance will pay out for wind damaged Fabric Shelters, also known as Shipping Container Sheds, but the cost of lost production and safety to staff and assets is far greater than the cost of the shelter replacement.
Buyers of DomeShelter™ Shipping Container Sheds sleep well at night, knowing their shelters are secure and engineered to the highest standard required for the region they are located. When a cyclone sweeps in from the Indian Ocean in Australia’s North West or a tornado like Willy Willy or Dust Devil crashes through the suburbs of metropolitan industrial areas, DomeShelter™ Fabric Structures will still be standing.
Australia has some of the highest engineering standards in the world. The Australian Wind Code was developed to meet that standard and ensure building structures are designed to withstand the anticipated wind speeds of the region they are located in. The design and engineering teams at DomeShelter Australia work diligently to ensure every shelter produced in our facilities meets the rigorous wind code standards, even up to wind code region D of severe cyclonic.
As a member of the DomeShelter™ team I also sleep well at night, knowing our designs are highly engineered to the standards specified, on all shelters produced.
