Discover the classic shelter system

It all began with the “Frankfurt” model. When our company founder Walter Solbach made the first shelters in 1969, he used elements from showcase construction and so gave the “Frankfurt” shelter system its unique character. This was so influential that its shape and style has found many imitators. Many decades later “the Frankfurt” is still a useful canopy, especially where the going gets rough. Whether as a machinery and equipment shelter in an industrial environment, providing shelter and splash protection for service stations, or as a classic bus shelter – with this model, you get an absolutely resistant and long-lasting weather protection. Should a shock be too hard: many parts can be replaced or repaired easily.

The design is also great for giving your company that special touch. Your company colours can easily be applied with a custom paint job to showcase your desired brand identity and feeling.

We do not have to say a lot to our customers about this model - if a product stays on the market for over 45 years and is still as popular as our "Frankfurt" - that speaks for itself. We especially receive positive feedback on the robustness and customisability through the wide range of colours - it simply makes a good impression when a petrol pump shelter or garage matches the corporate image.
