Meet the SQX: Quonset Hut Solutions from Alaska Structures

Alaska Structures creates the world’s safest and most versatile portable and permanent fabric building solutions. Our SQX Series of quonset huts continues our tradition of offering rugged shelter systems that are tough enough to stand up to the world’s most extreme climates. Alaska Structures takes the time-tested quonset hut design that has been used for years, and turns it into a high-tech fabric building system. Originally made out of corrugated steel for military purposes, quonset huts have been adapted by Alaska Structures into the perfect lightweight yet incredibly strong shelter solution for extreme environments.

We use rugged thermoplastic fabrics and high-strength metal framing systems tailored to your intended application, as well as snow loads, wind loads, humidity, and high/low temperatures specific to your location. You won't find a more durable fabric building. Our available insulated quonset huts can't be beaten in terms of heat retention, or snow load capacity per square inch.

You can quickly and safely install our SQX Series quonset buildings with minimal site preparation and securely fasten them to any surface. Every Alaska Structures building we produce meets or exceeds local and international building codes. We make each SQX Series tension fabric structure in the United States using industry leading engineering and design principals. Independent third-part experts test and certify our engineering, ensuring that it meets our demanding standards and yours.
