XT Series


The XT-Series shelter system was born out of a need for exploration or research teams traveling to remote areas to have a lightweight shelter that offers the rugged durability to not only withstand severe weather conditions, but endure the rigors of repeated setup and take downs. Whether used for a single night before moving to the next station, or kept in place for months or years at a time, the XT Series shelter system from Alaska Structures® has been field tested and proven by thousands of customers in extreme locations around the world.

The portability of the XT Series Shelter is unmatched, as is the quality of materials used in its construction. We produce each Alaska Structures XT-Series Shelter in the USA, using the highest quality materials. This ensures that each XT Series Shelter will hold up to the strict standards and proven reputation of Alaska Structures, and will perform well when exposed to the taxing conditions our customers routinely subject our fabric buildings to. The XT Series Shelter System is designed with minimal tool and foundation requirements, reducing the setup time and need for site preparation. Each XT Series shelter can be packed into carry bags or reusable Alaska Structures roto-mold containers.

Alaska Structures engineers each fabric building to meet our customer’s specific building requirements, as well as local or international building codes to ensure the safety of our fabric buildings. Our goal is to design and engineer the ultimate building solution which will meet any challenge - functional or environmental. The ability to customize, easily setup and take down, and quickly transport the Alaska Structures XT-Series Shelter System has made it the shelter of choice for the following government agencies:

  • Department of Natural Resources
  • Department of Fish and Game / Fish and Wildlife
  • Department of Fire Services / Fire and Emergency
