A customized six-foot by 12-foot Provincial Partitions smoke shelter provided the required protection from the elements.

J.J. McGuire, a general contractor servicing many industries, needed an exterior control room for one of its large automotive clients. The equipment to be housed outside was already in place, so the specifics of this particular building solution would require some creative thinking. 

The ideal solution

Provincial Partitions is a leading provider of modular structures, with more than 35 years in the industry. Since custom applications are its specialty, the manufacturer was a natural choice for this project.  

It was determined that the most ideal — and cost-effective — solution was to customize a relatively standard six-foot by 12-foot Provincial Partitions smoke shelter, which 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 Provincial Partitions smoke shelters, is lightweight and easy to relocate should needs change. Significant cost savings were realized by using the standard components used in smoke shelter construction.

All Provincial Partitions smoke shelter enclosures include a welded tubular aluminum frame construction and tempered safety glass. They are pre-painted and pre-glazed, and feature base plates for secure anchoring. Seating and other accessories are available, in addition to many glazing and electrical options.
