Important Winter Care Articles

We have published a few articles regarding winter care and maintenance, and suggest anyone who has purchased a structure from us to review them to make sure your shelter is safe over this winter. As always, we are available for anything you are wondering or concerned about. We would be happy to help.

The idea of a moving structure allows a user, with a little creativity, to protect 2 -3 times as much area with the same building and investment. It is a very simple concept as long as some basic guidelines are adhered to. It can be applied to many of our standard structures.

Please see our Movable Structures page for more information and don’t hesitate to call us with any questions regarding this unique application.

Winter Storms and Maintenance 

With the upcoming storms in both Ontario and the east coast forecasted, we wanted to remind everyone: it’s okay, and even preferred that the buildings have some snow around them.

This prevents the wind from getting under them and it also means that the height above the ground is less. This significantly decreases the aerodynamic lift.

As we’ve stated in our winter care articles and in the installation guide, there are things you can do to prepare your building to withstand the storms as best as possible. Taking extra steps during the ‘worst case scenario’ situations can often make all the difference and help your building stay standing.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about any of these situations. Good luck and stay warm!

Merry Christmas and happy new year!!

Multi Shelters Website Updates

Here at Multi Shelter Solutions, we do our best to provide flexibility in choices, quality of service and excellent value for the money. Due to some significant increases we have received on the galvanized tubular steel that our hoops are manufactured from, we have needed to raise our prices, effective immediately. The prices that you will see on the current application web pages are the correct and up to date ones.

We have also updated the sample prices for replacing the roof covers to the website as well so that you will be able to anticipate those costs down the road. These are only meant as examples, and as always you’re free to give us a call for your specific project.

Finally, it is with a sense of amazement and gratitude that we see how many people are using our website as their primary research tool for figuring out their next building purchase. There has been over 150,000 views now in approximately 28 months. Your feedback is appreciated!

Thank you for your patience and loyalty. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you on your next shelter project!

A note of caution…
At 6’ rib spacing, these structures are not intended to, or capable of handling very much snow load. This tunnel can handle greater loads by simply reducing the rib spacing and/or increasing the length of the anchor pegs.
