Winter is coming, and now is the time to prepare. If you have a vehicle that you need to keep sheltered from the elements during the winter, but you don’t have enough space in a traditional garage, a portable garage is a good alternative.
Winter can bring harsh weather, including snow and strong winds. You can protect your vehicle from the elements with a commercial wind and snow load rated storage building from Shelters of America.
Durable Construction to Protect Your Vehicle from Winter Weather
Our shelters are designed to be durable enough to stand up to extreme weather. They can withstand winds up to 105 miles per hour and ground snow loads up to 55 pounds per square foot.
Portable garages from Shelters of America are made with galvanized steel frames that are designed for durability, rust protection, and strength. Each tube goes through a triple-coating process inside and out so no untreated metal is exposed to the elements.
Our shelters have hook anchors and patented ShelterLock stabilizers at each rib connection to provide strength and stability. The hardware is bolted throughout at each connection point for maximum strength.
Our portable garages have double-zippered front door panels and solid rear panels. Our RatchetTite Tension System keeps the cover tight and smooth. The polyethylene material is treated inside and out to resist damage from the sun’s UV rays. The material is available in 9 oz. strength with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty, 14.5 oz. with a 10-year warranty, and 21.5 oz. with a 15-year warranty. The covers have a life expectancy up to 15 to 20 years and are available in several colors.
These wind and snow loads are for reference only and assume the portable garage is securely anchored according to local building codes and ordinances. The wind and snow loads have been calculated in accordance with ASCE 7-05 based on an unoccupied and fully-enclosed building. Local code requirements vary. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to comply with local codes.
