For more than twenty one years FAST Shelter has been manufacturing shelters for use in the Automotive Refinishing field as well as many different industrial applications. Through customer feedback and independent research we have continually made adjustments and improvements to our product line.
FAST Shelter is made to be used on macadam, concrete, stone, sand, grass, or any other surface. If you can drive on it, you can place a FAST Shelter on it.
Who needs a FAST Shelter?
Anyone who works outside and requires a temporary portable inflatable tent or workstation to protect their work, their tools, or themselves from the elements. Possible users include:
- portable paint booth
- auto tune up and oil change
- auto detailing
- snow mobile repair
- motorcycle repair
- boat repair
- construction covers
- emergency site shelter
- sporting event registration
- public event shelter
- and many more!
Why buy a FAST Shelter?
By using a FAST Shelter portable workstation, days normally lost to wind, rain, cold and sun are changed to profitable ones. The rapid set up and take down means FAST Shelter doesn’t add to your work load, only to your bottom line.
Many of our customers report earning 25% more each week simply because they have a controlled environment to work in. No more overspray on nearby vehicles, no more dusty paint jobs, no more wet interiors or ruined equipment because of a sudden shower. But most of all, no more short work week because of weather.
Face it, you’re in the appearance market. FAST Shelter makes you look as good as your work really is. Your customer will appreciate your professionalism, and that will result in additional sales. The “wow” factor is real and it sets you apart from your competitors.
Why an INFLATABLE shelter?
EASY SET UP
By using air for support, set up time is rapid and there is no need for cumbersome poles or damaging ground stakes. Five minutes is all it takes for an experienced person to set up a shelter.
Shelter packs up into either a heavy duty canvas bag or hard-side container. Everything except the blower in one spot.

Set Up / Take Down – Portable Paint Booth
Make sure there is enough room for your FAST Shelter inflatable tent before you take it from your work van or pickup truck. Walk off about 30 feet in one direction and 15 feet in the other. And if it is a windy location, be sure to leave room to park a vehicle on the attached pads for better stability.
Call or email us with any questions.
FAST Shelter comes in a heavy duty viny bag with tie up straps. Undo the straps, flip the bag on its side and roll out the shelter. Any flat surface will do.
Locate the two end doors and drag the shelter to face the way you want. Spread the shelter out flat so that the bottom black tubes are pulled tightly opposite each other. It is a little easier to do with two people, but one can handle it.
Place the blower by the blower tube and attach the tube.
Plug in the electric cord and turn on the blower. FAST Shelter will begin to inflate.
FAST Shelter inflates by itself. It is the tubes that inflate, not the whole structure.
You are ready to work!
Once inflated the shelter will need to be secured. Check out Anchoring Your Shelter for the best ways to secure your shelter.
