The Guardian shelter series builds upon the proven Western Shelter octagonal frame with evolutionary design upgrades to improve strength and weather resistance. Featuring a single piece cover set design, Guardian Shelters do not have seams between the roof and the walls. This means that they are well suited for longer term deployments where extended exposure to rain and wind is a concern.

Features and benefits
Extreme weather resistance
The Guardian is our toughest shelter yet, thanks to the structural rigidity provided by the single piece cover set. The permanent RF welded connection between the roof and the walls also means that there is no seam between the two, making it nearly impossible for wind or rain water to breach the shelter.
Ease of logistics
The Guardian Shelter Series simplifies logistics by limiting the number of separate parts involved in the shelter's construction. This reduces the risk of losing parts in the field, and makes shipping significantly easier.
No tools required
Similar to the GateKeeper Shelter, the Guardian requires no tools, ladders, or equipment to deploy. This vastly simplifies the setup process, and ensures that you never find yourself in the unfortunate, if not dangerous, situation of not being able to deploy your shelter because of missing tools.
Designed as a system
Western Shelters function well as stand alone products, but they deliver the most value when paired with our many support systems. These shelters are designed with climate control, electrical wiring, lighting, and air distribution in mind. Be sure to ask your sales representative about our complete line of accessories and support systems.
