You can find out more information on the structure shapes on our structure options page as well
The chart below explains the profile shape of our structures. For example, two feet in from the side of the structure, the 27′ Regular Profile is 5’5″ and has a peak height of 11’7″. The column on the far left is the length of steel the structure uses for each hoop. RP = Regular Profile HP = High Profile Below the chart are photo examples of the various shapes.
If you do not see the size/shape/height that you require below, contact us for a custom quote. We don’t bend any steel before getting an order, so we are able to help you meet your requirements by either using longer/shorter steel, custom bending the hoop, etc. We look forward to helping you with your shelter project!
Below is an example of the regular gothic profile. It has a curved arch that bends straight toward the peak. It is our most common structure to date and has great snow shedding capability.
Below is an example of the shape of our high profile structures. These structures give you more usable space at the side (see profile chart above for comparisons) and has greater snow shedding ability. It is currently growing in popularity.
Below is an example of the shape of our Cathedral structures. These structures give you more height with less floor space and are idea for tall boats or RVs. Because of the straight walls, they catch more wind and must have extra bracing, with our largest Cathedral going on 2′ hoop spacing. Virtually no snow can stay on these structures.
Below is an example of the space saver structure. It has straighter side walls with the peaked profile. This isn’t recommended for high snow or wind areas. Please speak with us about your specific location and application before considering these.
