Versatube Classic Carport Series
- Primary framing uses 2” x 2” square and 2” x 3” rectangular steel tubing for structures engineered up to 30’ wide and 12’ high (sidewall). 2” x 4” steel tubing is used for carports engineered over 30’ up to 52’ wide and up to 16’ high (sidewall).
- Standard carport packages include frame system with self-drilling screws, 29-gauge sheet metal & trim package with screws, butyl caulk tape, vinyl trim, and your choice of anchors.
With the VersaTube Slip-Fit frame system, you can get your shelter up in a single afternoon using common tools. The Classic carport is ideal for a wide range of shelter applications: single car, double car, three car, 3-sided, enclosed and as RV covers. Install on ground, concrete slab or footings or piers, or any level surface per anchoring instructions. Must be installed with one end slightly raised to allow water runoff.
Interior truss bracing may be required by engineering depending on the carport dimensions and your local snow and wind load requirements. Typically, 10’, 12’, 14’ and some 18’ and 20’ models do not require truss bracing. Some 18’ and 20’ and all 24’ and wider units are sold with truss bracing. Truss braces are used on all interior truss frame sections and ARE NOT REQUIRED on the front and back end truss of carports. The Truss bracing sent with your carport depends on the load rating on the cover.
