1. A constant hazard with portable shelters is degradation and corrosion of the frame. A Rhino Shelter prevents this by making all carriage nuts and bolts from stainless steel, making sure that the bolts won’t rust from exposure or suffer stress fractures due to wind or snow pressure for the lifetime of your product.
  2. All components of the Rhino Shelter frame are made from galvanized steel tubing. Unlike many other portable garage frames that use cheaper recycled steel that has been powder-coated to appear galvanized, Rhino Shelter’s use only true hot-dipped galvanized steel. For even greater protection, our tubing has two extra layers on the outside, including a clear protective coating, as well as a corrosion-resistant coating on the inside of the tubes.
  3. Rhino Shelter covers are made of heavy-duty 10-ounce rip-stop polyvinyl fabric with fabric diagram extra UV-resistant treatment and fire-retardant chemicals. Our material is made of three layers – the outer weatherproof coating that comes in a number of different colors, a black middle layer that blocks out both visible sunlight and ultraviolet rays, and a white inner layer. Our rip-stop poly fabric is hard to tear, and due to the way that it is woven, even if you get a tear it will not spread. Our high-quality, UV-resistant fabric will last 7 to 10 years in direct sunlight.
  4. All Rhino Shelters come standard with high-strength steel cable hook anchors, and a drive rod is included for anchoring. Rhino Shelters go above and beyond to make sure the shelters are properly secured – the anchor locks 3 feet underground, and have a 1200 pound pull-out ratio.
  5. The cover is attached at all four corners with ratchet straps, and the fabric is heat-welded at the seams. The cross-welding makes for very tough seams, so that the cover can be tightened over the frame, which will reduce structural vibrations. A drum-tight cover also doesn’t accumulate as much snow on the roof.
  6. Each Rhino Shelter comes with a double-zipper door panel with two zippers in each end. Both door panels can be rolled up, allowing for drive-through capability and great air flow in the space. We use only high-quality YKK zippers with closely-spaced teeth for bursting strength. The door panels are designed to withstand strong winds, and we also offer clips that go over the zipper tracks for extra reinforcement.
  7. Most of our shelter sizes come in three colors – green, gray and tan. There is no extra fee for your choice of color. Our three-layer fabric provides excellent protection against the elements – it stops rain and snow, the black middle layer blocks out UV rays and visible sunlight, and the white inner layer is bright and reflective, so you can use a light source in the enclosure more efficiently. A Rhino Shelter’s portable enclosure is hands down the best way to protect your tools or vehicles without having to build walls and a roof.
