Skid Structure Enclosures

In various industries ranging from mining to e-mobility, skid structures have revolutionized how equipment and materials are transported and utilized. A skid, a movable frame structure, serves as a platform where industrial equipment and materials are pre-mounted. This ingenious approach eliminates the need for on-site assembly, streamlining operations and ensuring that functions are “ready to use” upon arrival. For mining operations, modular and portable mining skids have become a cornerstone, allowing for the consolidation of equipment like air compressors and ancillaries onto a single frame. Data centers benefit from electric skids, which support multiple crucial pieces of equipment like generators, switchgear, and transformers. Similarly, oil and gas operations utilize modular process skids to transport complete process systems and gas conditioning skids to pre-treat natural gases. Solar power solutions make use of solar skids for efficient DC-to-AC conversion, while utility companies rely on skidded electrical assemblies for rapid and hassle-free installations. In manufacturing and refineries, process piping skids offer self-contained environments equipped with all the necessary components for seamless manufacturing processes.

However, exposing these skid structures to the elements poses a significant risk. Unprotected, sensitive mission-critical equipment is vulnerable to weather-related damage and extreme temperatures that can severely impact performance and efficiency. This is where Alaska Structures® engineered fabric structures step in as the ideal solution for skid structure enclosures. Our enclosures can be seamlessly integrated into the skid structure assembly or designed to encompass the entire skid assembly, securely anchored to various ground surfaces. Their meticulous engineering to meet area-specific wind and snow loads, in full compliance with local or International Building Codes (IBC) safety standards, sets our skid enclosures apart. They provide unparalleled protection against adverse weather conditions that could otherwise disrupt operations. These high-quality enclosures are specifically designed for regions with high solar loads and those prone to freezing temperatures. At Alaska Structures®, we work closely with companies to configure skid enclosures precisely to their requirements. Whether insulation, HVAC systems, lighting, electrical systems, windows, doors, or access points, we ensure each enclosure is tailored to optimize performance and safeguard valuable equipment.
