Join us online every Wednesday morning on Zoom to connect, chat, and find solutions to challenges you may have.
Since we aren’t able to get out to trade shows this year, we decided to host this quick weekly check in to connect and say hello!
Norm will be available to answer any questions you may have. You may also send them in advance to multisheltersales@gmail.com and we will answer them “live” on zoom.
We know you’re busy with your business too, so if you send in a question and can’t make it live, don’t worry, we will post a recording on Facebook and YouTube after the event.
Come out and connect, no matter which side of the country you’re on! this allows us to see everyone face to face that we may not normally get to because of distance. we look forward to having you join us in our new weekly special event.
Please note this is a time for connection, brainstorming solutions to your challenges, learning some information about structures and other questions. If you have a question about an order, or would like a quote, please contact the office separately and we would be happy to help you.
We are excited to have you join us for this new event and we look forward to your questions!

Featured Add-On: Center Pivoting Gable Vent

We wanted to remind everyone of the center pivoting gable vent that we offer as a simple solution to the challenges of venting a building.

For venting to be effective, it has to be as high as possible. This is a cost effective alternative to costly roof vents.

Part of the window swings in and part of it goes out. Because of this

  • rain is never an issue
  • the window is easy to control even in extreme winds.
  • Incoming air is always deflected up to mix with the warmest air.
  • The tubular steel construction makes it both lightweight and resist twisting over time.

A continuous rope goes from the top of the window to a pulley at the ridge, down to ground level and back up to another pulley and then to the bottom of the window. By tying the rope off to an eye bolt on a gable post, this allows for very simple control from ground level.

Please don’t hesitate to call us for more details or with any questions you have about this option for your building!

Properly Venting a Building

Properly venting a building is a critical consideration when planning your building.

Getting rid of the initial ground moisture, quickly, when you have erected your new shelter is something many people do not think of. Quality air changes for plants or animals is something that automatically comes to mind. Getting rid of moisture is equally as important for storing your valuables.

Vent4Since warm air holds moisture and warm air rises, it is important to have venting capacity as high as is possible.

Venting through the roof, with individual turbines or a continuous roof vent, is the most effective but also the most costly.

This is only really necessary when you are in a very protected spot and there is a real need to keep the temperature down in a long building.

vent3Most medium length buildings that have the ends facing into the prevailing winds, can be adequately vented with gable end peak vents.

  • Make sure that these openings are as big as possible and as high as possible.
  • It is also important to make sure your “windows” can withstand the winds in your area.

Our centre pivoting gable vent has filled this requirement very effectively.

  • With part of the window going in and part of it going out, the wind can never get hold of it.
  • With the top and bottom rope through a double pully on the ridge, it is easy to maintain precise control over the opening area

As with all the other considerations, please do not hesitate to contact us with your specific set of circumstances and challenges
