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!

Featured Product: Hanley Caterpillar Tunnels

Knight Hanley StructureWe offer these structures with 17′ wide hoops at 6′ increments. Ultimate in Low Cost, Portable Season Extending Greenhouses.

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.

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

Retightening a Loose Structure Cover

Previously we outlined how to do a temporary fix for loose cover. This should not be left for an extended period. Re-tightening a cover does not have to be done in one day.

  • The job MUST split into two parts lengthwise.
  • The cover must be pulled lengthwise BEFORE it is pulled from side to side.
  • Make sure you do the tightening process on a calm, warm day.
  • You should do the end which looks the worst first.
  • This job will require taking ALL of the cover fasteners out.

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.

When you are tightening the cover, you should always pull 90 degrees to the wrinkle. This means that after you have secured at the peak, most often you will be pulling diagonally to the corner.

Once you have done one end/half and the wind is still down, you can start loosing the fasteners on the other end and repeat the process until complete.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Winter Storm & Your Structures

We posted this January 4, 2015, but feel it’s important enough with the turn of weather today to repost. We hope you find it helpful.

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.

It is important to note that the ice in itself is not an issue, even a very thick layer actually has enough strength to become self supporting. There are two potential problems though. If the ice stays on the building, it usually has a rough enough texture that subsequent snow will not likely slide off. This scenario lead to major problems last winter (2014) when we had freezing rain, followed by a dump of snow and then we had rain. This can triple the weight on a building in very short order.

The other potential problem happens when you are attempting to remove the ice from the building. If the ice layer is not too significant you can gently bump the cover from the inside. ALWAYS start bumping the cover from the top. This way ice will slide over ice. Starting from the bottom creates a potential where the ice sliding down will fall back against the building and slash the cover. NEVER do all of one side and then the other. Work both sides simultaneously. If there is the slightest doubt in your mind about the amount of weight on the building, bump the cover from the outside using something with a long handle.

If in doubt please don’t hesitate to ask.

FEATURED PRODUCT: Movable Structures

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.
