Modified Hanley Tunnel

One of our most popular structures is the hanley tunnel because it is the cheapest way of covering an area for season extension.

As a way of addressing some of the challenges and limiting factors with the tunnels, we have come up with a modified hanley.

The two areas where it significantly improves on the regular tunnel are the side clearance and the peak for snow shedding. Instead of using 24’ of steel to make 17’ wide and 7’6” high, we are using 26’ of material to make 16’ wide and 9’ high. It still uses 28’ wide plastic with extra at the ends to make the same kind of “tails”.

Sliding the plastic up on the sides is still the way that the tunnel is ventilated and you will still have the same challenges as far as creating access.

The re-bar anchors, base plates, clasps and rope are the same on the modified hanley as they are for the regular tunnel. We supply 5’ more of extra plastic for the tails since the building is taller.

The peak on the end hoops are very hard on the plastic, so we have designed a more rounded hoop at each end. It is strongly recommended to have 3 guides ropes at each end to brace back to the anchoring posts of the plastic.

Any structure with ends is not considered a Hanley Tunnel. We are more than willing to discuss the differences and benefits/drawbacks between tunnels and cold frames should you wish to know more.

The main thing which is critical to understand before going with a modified hanley is the extra wind load which the structure will be subjected to. Going from 7’6” to 9’ high, results in a 40% increase in the wind load. This issue is what makes the correct tightness of the ropes an even more critical consideration.

It is also the reason why we strongly urge customers who
do not have any tunnel experience to start with a regular tunnel.

Curbside Pickup Helper

With the new provincial guidelines many businesses have been forced to go with curb side pick up. Terry Cormack and his staff at the Palmerston Home Hardware have certainly made the process more pleasant for their customers during the messy weather of the winter months.

We were lucky enough to get our new entrance shelter up yesterday. What a great help for curbside service! With the weather we’ve been getting today, our customers have really appreciated a little shelter! A big shout out to our local manufacturer Multi Shelter Solutions – right here in Palmerston!! Norm Eygenraam and his team at Multi Shelter Solutions put an extra effort into getting the bits and pieces made just before Christmas. And an extra thank you to Norm for his expert guidance with assembly yesterday! I would highly recommend Norm and his team if you are needing a solution to your shelter challenges. Check their shelters out at www.multisheltersolutions.com, or give them a call at 519-343-2335.

This 10’ x 12’ Multi Shelter Solutions building allows customers to wait for their order out of the snow and wind. With this “relative comfort”, it is easier for customers to be patient while the store employees do their best in these challenging times.

With the portability of this unit, when restrictions are lifted, Terry will be able to move the shelter to the back of his property where it can shelter his forklift and other miscellaneous equipment.

  • 10 x 12 x 10’2” — $1050 
  • 16 x 24 x 11’3” — $1875   
  • 20 x 24 x 12’1” — $2200

With the variety of sizes available there is a Curb Side Helper available to suit your requirements. Call or email today to get your custom quote!

Deliveries to Newfoundland!

**exciting announcement**

Our driver left this morning with our very first delivery to Newfoundland!

This has been something we have wanted to do as a company for a long time.

We deliver frequently to the east coast, which offers significant savings for our customers. Unfortunately, for our Newfoundland customers, things have never worked out to be included in those savings.

We do have a number of structures already in NFLD but this is the first time we can deliver them ourselves

This is partly a “trial run” for us so that we can have all the kinks worked out and do an even bigger load exclusively to the island, likely in April 2021.

Please contact us if you’re in NFLD and are interested in getting in on that delivery!

Thank you to all of our customers who have been working with us and planning ahead for their purchases.

Please send your questions to multisheltersales@gmail.com and we will address them on the next zoom call.
