Duraspace Modular Enclosures Now Available in U.S.

Duraspace modular buildings and enclosures are now available in the United States for businesses needing affordable, adaptable, convertible space.

Customized and convertible truly modular buildings for on-site storage or additional facility space are now available to businesses in the United States from McDonald Modular Solutions.

The Michigan company has an exclusive distribution agreement with RM Products of Orillia, Ontario to sell Duraspace modular fiberglass buildings and enclosures in the U.S. Duraspace buildings and enclosures offer unusual adaptability, since they are manufactured in panels and then assembled in Michigan according to customer specifications. The products are virtually maintenance free, pre-engineered for North American wind and snow loads, and rated as non-combustible.

Quick assembly and easy transportation make Duraspace products attractive. They’re also expandable as needs change.

Walkway covers can be later disassembled and converted to buildings, for example. The products are also easy to relocate.

Thousands of Duraspace products are in place across Canada, according to Randy Chotowetz of RM Products.

In Louisiana, Hurricane Katrina recovery workers are using Duraspace modular fiberglass enclosures adapted to shower space and shipped to Verizon’s on-site security team in New Orleans by McDonald Modular Solutions.

A 16’X20’X15’ garage to hold equipment for maintaining the sports venues at Western Michigan University was recently shipped to Kalamazoo in pieces, then assembled on site by a crew from McDonald Modular.

Tim Tsaddler, WMU’s manager of buildings, custodial and support services, said the garage is “an added nice piece” of the maintenance complex, and appealing because he could order the building to size. He noted that it was also set up easily and quickly.

Jerry Carrico, director of sales, says Duraspace is unlike any other product available in the U.S. “No other modular product offers all the benefits,” he observes. ”We expect Duraspace to be hugely popular.”

Buildings can be mounted to concrete, asphalt or a typical framed floor. Additional equipment is easily mounted through the wall, or to the internal flanges on interior surfaces. Duraspace enclosures can be designed in many configurations. Buildings typically range from 8 to 20 feet wide, and become personnel enclosures, general storage spaces, or dual office and storage space units.

Duraspace products are the first North American enclosures to resolve challenges found in difficult existing situations. For example, Duraspace enclosures are well-suited for water treatment plants where pipes must be securely covered to meet U.S. Homeland Security requirements.

Covering sensitive electrical or communications equipment is another application, as are custom storage, office and maintenance buildings. McDonald Modular Solutions is a major Midwest supplier of commercial, institutional and industrial modular space, both temporary and permanent.

The company is ISO 9001 certified for quality, and offers standard or custom products for purchase or lease. McDonald Modular Solutions has earned numerous industry awards, including the Building Institute’s Award of Distinction nine times. For more information about Duraspace products, visit
