Giving Back Program Update

An added update, from our 2020 giving back initiative, we were able to donate $520 to Breakfast Club of Canada for March and have decided to change things up for April/May since the need right now is so great.

We will be donating to Canadian Foodgrains which the government matches donations $4/$1 so the donation can go even further, as well as to Covanant House which helps those most at risk, and affected during these unpredictable times, who may be without shelter and a place to live.

A percentage of all structure purchases over April/May will be split between these two great causes to ensure even more people may be helped. Thank you for joining us to help those who need it most.

Update from MSS

**Updated 4/6/20**

First and foremost, we want to express our gratitude for all the front line workers in health care, grocery and growers, as well as so many more, working to keep society going and care for all of us during these challenging times.

We value our partnership with the growers in the food supply chain and are grateful we fall under the essential AGRICULTURAL services in Ontario so we can continue to provide your greenhouses and agricultural buildings, when time is of the essence to get your operations up and running.

The safety of our employees and customers is of top critical concern for us, and as such we have modified many of our procedures, for our own standard as well as government regulations. We appreciate your help in adhering and respecting these changes so we can all come out of this safe and healthy.

Our office doors are now locked, we are not having shop visits until further notice. We will gladly connect to you by phone, email, or zoom video conferencing for all your structure questions and needs.

There will be no pick ups as everyone is required to stay at home.

Our driver will not be handling any cash or cheques or having any direct customer contact. Orders must be prepaid before delivery. Each customer will receive a detailed list of instructions prior to delivery for preparation for delivery and this MUST BE signed and sent back in order for your delivery to go as scheduled. Please see delivery details here: https://multisheltersolutions.com/2020/04/03/multi-shelter-solutions-safe-delivery-protocols/  If these aren’t followed, our driver will not be able to complete your delivery.

At the time of writing this, our driver is doing the first delivery run on the east coast this week. He encountered multiple check points, but we are ensuring we have complete documentation to make the process go as smoothly and safely as possible. We do still plan another delivery to the east coast in April and another in May, but situations are also changing quickly. Please contact the office for further details.

As this is our busiest time of the year under normal circumstances, and now with an added layer of procedures, we appreciate your patience during this time. We are still open for phone and email contacts and will reply within a week or sooner, of receiving the request.

We look forward to working with you on your structure projects!

We are grateful you place your trust in Multi Shelter Solutions for your growing, housing, and storage needs. We will rally together and get through this. Our hearts go out to all those impacted by this crisis and we pray it will pass quickly and you can find some moments of calm.

Stay safe and healthy, and we will keep you updated for any changes in the days to come.

Livestock Shelter or Greenhouse?

One of the questions we are often presented with has to do with customers wanting a structure for dual purpose. In itself, this could be considered as a wise strategy to get multiple uses for a building so that it can be used closer to year round.

The question which needs to be asked is “Are these complimentary applications?

One of these dual applications is for greenhouses and livestock shelters. There are a lot of similarities between the two with the most prominent ones being a double roof cover with air between and that they often have roll up sides.

Where the problem arises is that when you have a greenhouse, there MUST be a clear cover to allow the proper spectrum of light to come through to allow plant growth to occur. This level of light comes with heat which can easily be a problem for animals.

For a livestock shelter 90% of the battle is keeping them dry and out of the wind, cool is better then warm. If your animals will only be in the shelter during inclement weather, you will likely have more leeway in dealing with heat.

We have had customers who cover with single clear during growing season and the put an extra layer of white during the animal housing.

If you have any questions or concerns on how you plan to use your shelter, please call or email for extra input.
