Portable Garage: Shelters, Metal Carports, Instant Garage
Choosing a Portable Garage or Carport
Versatile portable garage canopies and carports are becoming an economical way to shelter vehicles or heavy equipment in residential, commercial and industry settings. They're also being used as animal shelters, portable storage sheds and outdoors entertainment venues.
The easy-to-assemble carport and garage canopies at CanopiesAndTarps.com are built with all-steel frames that are powder-coated for durability and sturdy polycarbonate roof panels. Cleanups are easy. It's also easy to reconfigure your outdoor shelter for multiple uses throughout the year. Step-by-step instructions are included with every garage canopy or tarp carport.
At Canopies and Tarps, find open-sided canopy tents with mesh tops, round portable garages, valance tops, fire-retardant covers and enclosure kits. Find peak-roof portable garages to store an RV or multiple vehicles and wind/snow-rated shelters. All portable garage units include front and back double access panels with zippered doors that can be rolled up and down.
An economical choice when you don't need a fully enclosed space is a standard top canopy with open sides. Choose a flat roof or low peak canopy, or consider a high peak or rounded peak. Sizes range from 10 feet by 10 feet to 30 feet by 50 feet.
Because these are often used as entertainment canopies, find them stocked in red, green, beige, yellow, orange or blue. For example, the 10-foot by 10-foot Adventurer Canopy from Canopies and Tarps is available in seven colors. This canopy includes a galvanized steel frame and matching fittings, a 12-mil poly tarp and ball bungee ties.
For jobs that demand heavy-duty shelters, the 30-foot by 50-foot Commercial Canopy with reinforced roof rafters has a waterproof high-density polyethylene tarp cover that is also UV-resistant. The high-peak top promotes water runoff. Installation tools such as ball bungee ties, foot base plates and bar brace supports are included.
Round-style portable garages are available in sizes to fit a motorcycle, a pickup truck or an RV. You can also find three-car rounded portable garages at Canopies and Tarps with white interior linings for enhanced illumination.
These portable fully enclosed garages with rounded roofs are designed with impressive wind/snow load capacities. The all-steel frames are powder-coated for durability. The cover is triple-layer, chemically heat-bonded polyethylene with a rip-stop fabric cover. The seams are hot air fused to create a 100 percent waterproof structure. Zippered door panels are at the front and back.
For more versatility with a full enclosure, consider a 30-foot by 40-foot canopy with a full enclosure kit that will allow you to attach one or two sides, or attach all panels to transform a tarp shelter into a fully enclosed garage. This style has a double-zippered front door, a solid back door an all accessories.
Portable sheds are another outside storage option that will protect your work project, equipment, supplies and tools. Cheaper than a conventional metal shed, these sturdy enclosures range in size from 6 feet by 6 feet 12 feet by 12 feet with heights up to 8 feet by 8 feet at Canopies and Tarps. A portable shed is an inexpensive way to house sporting equipment, lawn mowers and other outside gear.
These portable sheds are bonded with a DuPont brand thermoset baked on powder-coated finish to prevent chipping, peeling, rust and corrosion. The waterproof polyethylene cover is triple-layered and chemically heat-bonded to stop rips, and it's UV-treated inside with anti-fungal agents to resist weather damage. A trademarked RatchetTite Tensioning System makes installation easy. The front door panel has double zippers.
American-made Shelter Tech SP shelters are available in different sizes with specific wind and snow ratings to withstand extreme weather conditions. For example, the Shelter Tech SP 22-foot by 30-foot Peak Shelter Series with an 11-foot height has a snow load rating of 60 pounds per square foot and a wind rating of 175 mph. This series of snow/wind shelters have 14.5-ounce poly covers crafted with fire-rated FR fabric with patented steel ShelterLock stabilizers at each connection.
Each metal component is triple-coated to prevent rust on these wind/snow-rated shelters. The air-fused seams are waterproof. If you want to set up a portable garage in extreme weather conditions on uneven surfaces, these shelters have the added advantage of pivoting footplate designs to make installation easy on uneven terrain.
When on temporary assignment, portable garages and carports have proven money-saving options to protect vehicles without investing in permanent structures that will have to be left behind when the assignment ends. Because all set-up accessories are included, along with step-by-step instructions, you can arrange to have a portable garage canopy shipped as you would your other belongings to military installations, summer vacation homes, research bases or university housing.
