Canopies aren't only for the home. Sometimes, a large area needs mass coverage, be it for vehicles, other investments, or people. Because of this, manufacturers like ShelterLogic have created commercial canopies. These smaller shelters are built with the same strength as those designed for the home. A galvanized or powder-coated steel frame is the foundation for each commercial canopy and, once anchored into the ground, withstands winds up to 95 miles per hour and heavy snowfalls. The polyethylene tarp, with an enclosed or valance style, also has its own set of protective properties. Heavy-duty and tear-resistant, this tarp is treated to be waterproof, UV resistant, rot proof, and mildew resistant.
So, how large can commercial canopies be? Some of the largest shelters can cover an area up to 30 by 50 square feet, although custom-sized structures are also an option. When it comes to protecting cars and other vehicles, sometimes bigger is better. Such commercial canopies, used in apartment buildings, work parking lots, and at outdoor events and festivals, protect up to six standard-size cars at a time. More than one larger vehicle, such as a truck or RV, can fit under a commercial canopy, as well.
Like any size shelter, commercial canopies are sold in valance and enclosed options. Before you choose a structure, decide its need. Are you storing multiple investments inside of it for several months at a time? In this case, consider a larger, enclosed commercial canopy. If you simply need enough shelter to cover everyday vehicles in a parking lot, go with a valance style.
Not all commercial canopies are made for long-term storage, and others simply provide the convenience of shade over a large surface area. Outdoor events, such as trade shows, flea markets, and weddings, are prime occasions for a larger pop-up tent, and these canopies are made from a powder-coated steel frame and a polyester top treated to be UV resistant and waterproof. Lightweight and durable, these commercial pop-up canopies offer shade from the sun and rain for guests, vendors, and investments. For a wedding, specially, one of these larger white canopies is ideal as the place for your ceremony in the spring or summer, and is easily transformed through a few adjustments into a dining and dancing area for the reception.
