Our Shady Shelters are built 'ranch tough' ~ to last for years:
Shady Shelters are made from 14 gauge by 2” Square and 12 gauge by 2 ¼” galvanized square steel tubing to form the two end frames, which can be taken apart for easy shipping, easy transport, and easy storage. The steel in this tubing is very tough, (standing up very well to twisting and bending forces) and last for years.
High strength MIG welding is used wherever welding is required, which gives permanent strength and stability for years of continual use in the open.
Painted sections, such as the welded angles, fence rail grips, and top end caps are also made of the same galvanized steel square tubing. The welded areas are painted with Rustoleum brand spray paint for long-term protection and good looks.
The tarps we use are the best quality that we've found, and our standard size is 8'x10'. Tarps 10'x10' and 10'x12' are available as a special order. The standard tarp used has a silver top and a black bottom. The silver top reflects the sun’s heat, much like the upper leaves of a tree, and the black underside is cool to the eyes, like the cool shady leaves on the bottom of the tree canopy. The tarps are heavy duty, excellent quality and fit snuggly to the frame. The bungees are also top quality. We have not found the same fit or quality at any local hardware stores. Note: it is very important that the tarp is attached to the frame using the bungees provided. The bungees allow movement of the tarp and helps to prevent the tarp from ripping.
Also, if you live in a VERY hot area, you may be interested in the heavier Vinyl tarps that we offer - as a special order. They are made specifically to hold up much better to extremely hot temperatures. Please see the 'Shelter Details' page, for more information.
