What is a winter shelter?

The winter shelter is a removable structure covered with a canvas that can be found, for example, in residential parking lots across the province. It protects you from the cold season’s bad weather and saves you from having to clear the snow after each storm.
Please note that there are a few municipal bylaws that must be respected or you risk fines. Check with your municipality to make sure you can install a winter shelter.

Advantage of a custom-made winter shelter

Designed to meet specific needs, a winter shelter allows you to secure your environment, protect your customers or your employees, make your life easier or solve a particular problem.

We use our extensive expertise and know-how to custom design and manufacture higher-quality winter shelters for residential, commercial, institutional and industrial sectors. That’s why companies such as Bell Helicopter Textron, Airbus, Bombardier, Messier-Dowty (Safran Group), Paccard and Nova Bus as well as several hospitals, CHSLDs and CLSCs call on our team to respond to their specific needs.

Our winter shelters are manufactured with the highest-quality materials available in the industry.

Our custom-made shelters are made with acrylic fabrics (Sunbrella, Dickson, Ultrasol, Tempotest, etc.) or superior-quality vinyl (Ferrari 502, Stam, Ennis 1974, Solstice 86-92-99, Solstice Air, etc.). Structures are made of galvanized steel or natural gray or painted aluminum.
