Panelized shelter during assembly
VFP's panelized shelters are designed with modular panels to facilitate easy assembly and disassembly for relocation.
R-30 panel insulation makes these knock-down buildings perfect for locations with extreme temperatures or high heating or cooling costs.
Your own personnel can assemble them on roof tops or mountain tops, transporting one panel at a time to the site if necessary. A crew of 2 workers can put this unique pre-packaged shelter together in 3 to 4 hours.
Panel Interlock System
The panels consist of interior and exterior metal skins precisely formed with steel dies and thoroughly checked with gauges for uniformity and accuracy.
The R-30 insulation is "foamed-in-place" rigid urethane, completely heat cured, and bound to the metal skins to form rigid 4 inch (10 cm) thick insulated panels.
Cam-action locking devices are precisely positioned in the panels to assure a positive joint.
Built to Withstand Extremes

The heat and pressure curing process gives dimensional stability and assures you of consistent density in each panel, producing a 98% closed cell barrier.
The double tongue-and groove edges keep the insulation tightly joined when erected, eliminating costly voids in the cold barrier and providing the most efficient thermal break with tremendous strength and integrity. High-quality urethane foam insulation and tight construction give these shelters effective performance at temperatures ranging from 250 °F to -40 °F (121 °C to -40 °C).
The panels simply will not contribute to the spread of a fire:
Approved by the New York City Toxicity Requirements and Listed MEA #37-85M
Passed the New York State Toxicity Test LRP-100-215 in compliance with the fire gas toxicity product test
The standard floor surface is aluminum treadplate capable of supporting a uniformly distributed load of 650 lbs/ft2 (3174 kg/m2).
For heavier loads we can design a reinforced floor capable of supporting uniformly distributed loads of up to 1000 lbs/ft2 (4882 kg/m2).
