Covering your pool gives you many benefits
- extending your swimming season
- increased privacy while swimming
- significantly reduces the amount of chlorine that is used during the season
- reduces the need to sweep your pool as often.
- Enjoy swimming without the mosquitoes!
The typical package is sold with a double clear cover and a roll up side wall kit.
The structure can be fastened directly to your deck or anchored beside the concrete. Consider placing the structure off center to create extra walking/lounging space along one side.

Another application that our structures are being increasingly used for is golf cart storage.
These shelters provide golf course superintendants with economical winter protection for the carts and other equipment.
During peak season these shelters service as maintenance areas for equipment and storage for fetilizer.
Multi Shelter Buildings are very versatile and the same building can be used for multiple applications. Call today to discuss your requirements and we can help you find just the right structure for your needs.
Installing a greenhouse over a swimming pool is a cost effective and simple way to significantly increase the use of your investment.
Even with an unheated pool, you will be extending the swimming time by a minimum of three months. This is accomplished due to the greater heat efficiency which is created by the double poly cover.
During the swim time you will have up to 75% decrease in chlorine use and a 75% decrease in sweeping time.
The roll up sides will make the temperature comfortable during the day time with adequate ventilation. By closing the roll up sides in the evening you will eliminate the cool evening breezes and control the bugs.
With the wide variety of shapes and sizes available, almost every pool can be covered. The experience can be further enhanced with adding a spa or change house area. A wide variety of ends are available depending on the aesthetics or requirements.

While we are enjoying the nice weather of the summer, it’s always a great time to be thinking of your late summer and fall projects. Often we hear people rueful that they were not able to get their structure up before snowfall since winter always sneaks up. What better time to plan for those projects than now!
We have many wonderful weather days for installing, rather than having to settle with a less than ideal day to put the building up and especially fasten the cover down. Friends and neighbours would likely be more willing to help as well.
- These buildings are great for storing the hay and other equipment for your farm.
- They can cover your swimming pool to extend your season into late fall/early winter.
- Park your RV, boat or other fun summer toys over the winter to keep them protected.
- Plan for a garage so this will be the year you don’t need to brush snow off your vehicle.
There are so many great uses, call us today to discuss your project requirements and out there ideas!
The fall is always a busy time here at Multi Shelters. We would love to help you with your 2017 project, and we hope to hear from you soon!

Animals thrive in a greenhouse type environment benefiting from
- being dry
- being out of the wind
- being in the light without being in the direct sun.
- The cushion of air created by the inflator fan will reduce the condensation
- Roll up sides are added for easy natural ventilation.
Usually customers attach a snow fence or netting to the inside of the arch if the structure is mounted to the ground, so the animals do not come in contact with the cover or run away when the sides are rolled up.
A short wall is also an option to keep the animals away from the plastic while also increasing the sidewall height.
A white tarp covering may be used instead of the double white poly, especially in situations where the animals are going in and out on their own accord when they require shelter.

An inflator fan is a very small fan which is attached to the inner layer of a double layer structure cover. Because the inflator is a squirrel cage type of fan, it can run continuously against the back pressure it has created without over heating.
The primary benefit of the process of putting air between the two layers of cover is to reduce heat loss. By having this cushion of “insulation”, the building experiences a significant reduction in condensation. The air filled pockets acts as a shock absorber therefore substantially stiffens the building in very windy locations. Covers tend to last longer since they are always tight.
The closer you are to achieving dead air space, the more these benefits can be maximized. 4”-5” of air space is optimum. Too much air space will result in air movement and reduced efficiency. When installing a double cover, both layers are on the outside of the structure but only the inside layer is pulled tight.
For all of those who are either off the grid or too far from a practical source of electricity, stay tuned for our solar powered inflator fan announcement coming very shortly
