Two Cover-Tech Shelters
In December, 2020 we installed two 30′ x 60′ Cover-Tech shelters at Pearson Airport. The shelters are intended for use with tractor trailers. To achieve greater height the shelters were installed on 3′ concrete blocks.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How difficult is it to assemble a Cover-Tech shelter?
Assembly difficulty depends on: the size of the shelter, the equipment you have available and the weather. A larger shelter, (more than 20′ wide) will have heavier frame pieces and a heavier fabric to pull over the frame. A carport shelter can be assembled with 12′ step ladders and normal hand tools. A larger shelter job is made easier with a two man lift.
Although a shelter frame can be assembled on a windy day the job of pulling the fabric cover over the frame is harder and potentially dangerous in a high wind.
How many does it take to assemble a Cover-tech shelter?
A carport shelter can easily be assembled by two people in an afternoon. Larger shelters may require a crew of four.
What equipment will we need to assemble a Cover-Tech shelter?
Our crews normally use a two man lift, a scissor lift and a
Will we need a building permit?
If the shelter is deemed a “temporary” structure you will not likely need a building permit . But, if the local building inspector observes the structure still in place two years after it was assembled a permit may be required.
