Product Information

Best telecom shelters manufacturers in South Africa. These telecom shelters are crucial for maintaining uninterrupted communication in different regions, including urban, rural, and remote areas. Dalucon offers customized solutions that adhere to the highest performance and safety criteria for a variety of applications, including insulated roofing panels, insulated doors and insulated shelters and containers.

We have developed our own unique base frame. Our base frame is designed in a way to maximize its strength through careful placement of its cross members, which avoids the floor carrying the weight of the wall and roof panels. A water proof system channels the water to the underside of the base frame, very importantly, giving the container a clean, elegant look and feel.

Base frames can be made up of Hot Dipped Galvanized or 3CR12 material. We prefer stainless steel 304 for its durably, anti-corrosion properties and ultimate strength.

    Telecom Equipment Shelters

    Telecommunication shelters are essential infrastructure elements that serve the purpose of housing and safeguarding sensitive equipment required for maintaining resilient communication networks.

    Construction Materials: Hot Dipped Galvanised and 3CR12

    Hot Dipped Galvanised Steel

    Hot dipped galvanised steel is a popular material for constructing telecommunication shelters due to its excellent corrosion resistance and durability. The galvanisation process involves coating steel with a layer of zinc, which provides a protective barrier against rust and environmental degradation. This makes hot dipped galvanised steel ideal for outdoor applications where exposure to the elements is a concern.

    3CR12 Material

    3CR12 is a ferritic stainless steel known for its superior corrosion resistance, especially in mildly corrosive environments. It offers a cost-effective alternative to more expensive stainless steels while still providing excellent performance. 3CR12’s robustness and longevity make it suitable for telecommunication shelters that need to withstand varying environmental conditions without compromising structural integrity.

    Telecommunication Shelters have various uses in South Africa.

    Metropolitan regions

    Telecommunication shelters are crucial in metropolitan areas as they provide necessary accommodation for equipment such base transceiver stations (BTS), power supply, and network switching devices. These shelters provide protection for essential communication infrastructure against environmental elements, acts of vandalism, and unwanted entry. Within urban areas, where there is often a scarcity of space, these shelters offer a condensed and reliable option for installing and overseeing telecom equipment shelters.

    Rural areas

    Rural regions in South Africa frequently encounter connectivity obstacles as a result of extensive distances and challenging topography. Telecommunication shelters enable the extension of networks into these areas by offering a secure setting for the equipment that sustains mobile and fixed-line communications. These shelters play a vital role in expanding services like voice, data, and internet connectivity to communities that lack access, thus promoting economic growth and social integration.

    Challenging and inhospitable surroundings

    Telecom shelters constructed from robust materials such as hot dipped galvanized steel and 3CR12 are essential in remote areas and regions with challenging climatic conditions, such as coastal areas or sites with extreme temperatures. These shelters guarantee the functionality of the equipment even when exposed to saltwater, extreme humidity, or temperature variations. The durability of these materials ensures the dependability and extended lifespan of the communication infrastructure.

    Significance of Communication Shelters

    Telecommunication shelters are essential infrastructure components specifically built to accommodate and safeguard delicate electronic equipment that is crucial for maintaining resilient communication networks. Their significance is manifold, including safeguarding against environmental risks, ensuring security and safety, facilitating maintenance, and allowing for scalability.

    Safeguarding of Vulnerable Machinery

    Telecom shelters are designed with precision to safeguard delicate electronic equipment from environmental perils such as precipitation, particulate matter, gusts of wind, and severe temperatures. These telecom equipment shelters guarantee the best performance and durability of the equipment they contain by creating a regulated atmosphere. Ensuring the resilience of communication networks is of utmost importance, particularly in regions susceptible to severe weather conditions.

    In order to do this, all the wall panels in these telecom shelters are constructed using high-pressure injected polyurethane, which is then covered with a layer of 0.6mm white Chromadek. The panels are connected using a tongue and groove technique, and all connections are meticulously sealed with polyurethane sealant. The roofing is constructed with a 2-degree incline, typically sloping away from the door, in order to avoid water infiltration. The precise construction of these shelters guarantees that they are completely waterproof, protecting the equipment within from any moisture or other environmental elements.

    Protection and well-being

    Communication shelters not only provide environmental protection but also offer strong security features to protect equipment from theft, damage, and illegal access. The utilisation of robust materials such as hot dipped galvanised steel and 3CR12 significantly bolsters the physical security of these shelters, rendering it arduous for trespassers to get access. Protecting priceless telecom assets and guaranteeing continuous service depend heavily on this security.

    The doors in these shelters are fabricated using stainless steel 304 and are laser cut. They are also equipped with a three-point locking system that can be disassembled from the inside in case technicians become trapped inside. The hinges are equipped with anti-tamper mechanisms and pivot on urethane bushes to guarantee seamless operation when opening and closing. These elements collectively guarantee the security of the shelters and the protection of the equipment from external dangers.

    Simplified upkeep and convenient access

    Telecommunication shelters are specifically engineered to facilitate convenient maintenance and ensure easy access. They frequently showcase modular designs that facilitate rapid installation and convenient access to equipment for maintenance and upgrades. This design flexibility is especially advantageous in isolated or rural settings where the prompt execution of maintenance tasks can be difficult. Utilising superior materials also decreases the frequency of necessary maintenance, hence leading to decreased operational expenses.

    Large shelters offer the convenience of flat pack and on-site assembly options, which facilitate shipping and installation. We can offer electrical reticulation services, which include providing kits that consist of AC/DC distribution boards, plug points, interior and exterior lights, smoke detection systems, wiring looms, air conditioners with vandal protection, AC control panels, and emergency fans with door louvers. These features guarantee that the shelters are not only simple to upkeep but also fully prepared to facilitate telecoms operations.

    Scalability and flexibility

    Telecommunication shelters are designed with a modular structure, which enables easy expansion and adaptability while deploying networks. In response to the increasing demand for telecommunication services, it is possible to create extra shelters to house new equipment and enhance network capacity. Scalability is crucial for accommodating the rising connectivity demands of South Africa’s expanding population and economy.

    Shelters of almost any size can be produced, and in the event that extra-large shelters are required, they can be shipped to the location in flat pack form and assembled there. Shelters can also be compactly loaded into shipping containers or onto super link trucks for transportation to Africa. By adopting a modular and flexible strategy, telecoms operators can effectively and optimally scale their infrastructure according to their requirements.
