Important Note About Freight Costs from Norm

Featured

With sudden skyrocketing fuel prices we can no longer guarantee freight costs. Any freight or courier quotes, at this point are an educated guess and would have to be confirmed at the time of ordering.

This applies to anything that has been quoted in the last 30 days as well.

We will be carefully monitoring all freight quotes from our suppliers and definitely favour those that give us the most stable pricing.

We hope that is a short-term problem. We also hope for a peaceful resolution to the problems that are behind this volatility.

We will keep you posted.

Winter Care & Maintenance
Important notes for various situations
Our structures are designed in a gothic shape with a slippery cover to be lightweight and snow resistant. This encourages the snow to slide off quickly. This is not an industrial high snow load building….

Weather Cautions
These buildings are not industrial grade shelters and, as such, some caution must be exercised under some winter storm conditions….

Winter Storm & Your Structures
Many areas have been hit with freezing rain today and even though it has generally not been enough to warrant concern for the structures, it is a good time to recap some common things when dealing with ice on buildings….

Retightening a Loose Structure Cover
Re-tightening a cover does not have to be done in one day. Taking a short cut will leave you with more wrinkles. Areas with wrinkles will flutter more and cause stress points.
This will also cause the cover to deteriorate quicker……

Temporary Fix for a Loose Cover
There are a number of instances where a cover will need to be installed in less than ideal conditions. This can be either be on a windy day or in the cold (-10C or worse) and the job simply can not wait.

Season Extension: Hanley Caterpillar Tunnels
The real lure of these buildings is their low cost and simplicity to move. Generally the area is prepared in advance and then the tunnel is moved over the area when the planting is to be done…..

Happy Valentine’s Day and Family Day! We hope you and your family are staying warm, and getting excited for the upcoming spring and growing season! We look forward to working with you on your projects in 2021!

Exciting Announcement!

It is with gratitude that we are announcing the expansion plans of Multi Shelter Solutions in 2022.

Through the dedication and hard work of the staff in combination with the trust and loyalty of our customers, we have outgrown our facilities.

After 17 years, this will be an opportunity to start with a clean slate. By building according to our needs, we will be able to serve our customers better and work with greater efficiencies.

By building with a vision toward the future, there will be an even greater possibility for expansion.

I am grateful that the Town of Minto Council shared our vision for the use of the new property and chose our proposal.

It will be a very busy year with a lot of excitement.

Truth and Reconciliation day

Today is National Day for #truthandreconciliation  On this day of reflection, we recognize and educate ourselves on the history and legacy of residential schools, and wear orange to remember the Indigenous children, honour survivors and the community.(credit: PetValu)

We can’t wait for the govt to fix things. If the last two years have taught us anything…change begins with people. Not power. Today is a day of remembrance, acknowledgement, so that thousands of lives are not forgotten and the ones still suffering are supported how they need
