Western Shelter has built its reputation on the legendary reliability and versatility of the GateKeeper shelter line. Since our founding in 1988, this general purpose shelter series has protected people from the most severe weather conditions all over the world.

The GateKeeper is available in three standard sizes and multiple trim levels, ranging from the base shelter only to a fully insulated system complete with support equipment.

Features and Benefits

Time tested ruggedness

High quality components and a weather proven design come together to make the GateKeeper one of the toughest shelters on the market. Our customers have relied upon the robustness of the GateKeeper through high winds, heavy snow, scorching heat, and bitter cold. These Shelters are also known for their ability to last through countless strike cycles and extended deployments.

Deploys without tools

A marquee feature of the GateKeeper series is that it 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 due to missing tools.

Unmatched interoperability

GateKeeper shelters are designed from the ground up to network together through a simple connection process. This allows individual shelters to grow into much larger climate controlled structures, a capability that is ideal for medical applications where keeping patients dry and protected is critical at all times.

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.
