Why We're Better

Rhino Shelter by MDM Products, LLC are the industry leaders in portable shelters, buildings, animal enclosures, and more. Below, find out exactly how we differ from our competition.


Rhino Shelter Industry Leading Fabric

Rhino Shelter

To make our fabric more resilient, our material consists of 3 layers. 100% of the sun’s UV rays is blocked by our black inner scrim layer which keeps the shelter fabric cooler and most importantly the layer helps retaining the fabric’s inner materials from breaking down over time. The fabric thickness measures in at 10 ounces. To reinforce our fabric from stress tears or splits which is most commonly found when cranking the ratchet straps and securing the shelter cover, we heat weld our fabric in an up and over direction. Our fabric is CPIA-84 certified (Fire Retardant), 100% water proof, and is certified for up to 10-years life expectancy. All fabric is tested for quality assurance before shipping from our warehouse.

Closest Competitor

Most of the portable buildings that are available in the market do not have the black scrim material and only last 3 to 5 years. Also, a common trick the competition uses is to display their thickness in square meters which makes it sound thicker than it really is. Don't be fooled by this marketing scheme.

Galvanized Steel

Rhino Shelter Steel Tubing Comparison

Rhino Shelter

The steel of your shelter plays an import role in ensuring its life span. Rhino shelters are built to withstand snow loads and heavy winds. Our galvanized steel is hot-dipped so the pipes do not rust internally or externally. We are proud to show pictures of snow covered shelters on our website that have withstood the infamous Northeast winters year in and year out as a testament of our quality. Please note: our Party Tents and Party Canopies are powder coated due to the fact these are temporary structures and are not designed to be exposed to the elements year-round.

Closest Competitor

Our competition only uses thin wall small-diameter tube for their frame as well as powder coating for protection. Powder coating does not protect against rust and a smaller diameter frame makes a weaker structure. Also, the light weight steel cannot hold up under snow load.


Rhino Shelter Ventilation

Rhino Shelter

Rhino Shelter is proud to be the only shelter company to offer built in screen vents for breathing. This helps with regulating the shelter's inside temperature. When protecting something valuable, this is a must-have feature.

Closest Competitor

Closest competitors use cheap plastic clip-in vents that will not last and is not a structural part of the shelter.

Anti-Spread Pins

Rhino Shelter Anti-Spread Pins

Rhino Shelter

There are 4 pins for every garage. These pins help keep the end arches from spreading apart and causing the zippers to break. Without the pins, when wind hits the front or back of the shelter, the arches flex back and forth and will eventually break the zippers. The pins help maintain the shape of the buildings arches and, most importantly, keep your end arches from spreading wider than they should be, ultimately ensuring the life span of the shelter.

Closest Competitor

Other competitors do not offer these pins, nor do they supply you with this option.


Rhino Shelter 2 Year warranty

Rhino Shelter

We stand by our product and show it by including a standard 2-year warranty on all parts and labor that covers the entire shelter.

Closest Competitor

The competition only offers a 1-year warranty on their products

Better Business Bureau

Rhino Shelter Better Business Rating

Rhino Shelter

Rhino Shelter is a proud member of the Better Business Bureau and we stand out with an A+ rating for over 12 years. Buying a shelter should be a smooth process. We understand in this day and age no one has time for gimmicks or service representatives who can't help you. We not only sell great shelters, but we make each and every customer a priority and go the extra mile to answer every question or address any concern in a timely and professional manner.

Closest Competitor

When buying a shelter, make sure you research a company's Better Business Bureau rating. The BBB is a good resource to check before making an expensive purchase.


Rhino Shelter Hardware Comparison

Rhino Shelter

Hardware is an incredibly important part of a quality shelter. We'd like to point out that our carriage bolts bag weighs in at an astounding 6 lbs. and that's just the carriage bolts.

Closest Competitor

Our competitor's entire hardware pack weighs in at only 2 lbs. Low quality hardware will greatly diminish the life span of your shelter.
