STEEL R PANEL PATIO
COVERS AND CARPORTS - UTILITY SERIES
Our Utility Series patio covers and carports are designed to provide affordable refuge from the elements, offering you a pleasant place to hide from the sun and rain, while protecting your patio furniture or vehicles.
These “R panel” style patio covers and carports are, in fact, so strong, that our installers frequently walk on top of them when finishing up installation details. The posts are heavy, square 14 gauge red primed steel, in either a 3 inch or 4 inch size, set into 3000 pound per square inch rated concrete, buried deep in the ground.
Unlike a lot of the little carports you see set up on the side of the road everywhere you go, these steel patio covers and carports are not likely to be blown away by high winds. If one of these gets blown away, you had better check and see if your house is still there!
We use C shaped beams and I beams that we create by attaching C beams back to back, to assemble a sturdy structure capable of holding its own in strong winds and under ice and snow loads.
The top of our utility series consists of what most people call “R Panels”, (a name trademarked by one particular manufacturer) - like the ones used to cover steel commercial buildings, well known in the industry as one of the strongest and most affordable coverings available anywhere.
Our panels, though, are not those thinner 29 gauge flatter ones, like you often see on the little carports we mentioned earlier - on the side of the road - at used car lots, trailer house dealerships, pawn shops and such places. Our panels are 26 gauge (the lower the number, the thicker the panel) for added strength when storms and ice come calling.
Our Utility Series covers and carports can be attached to your home or they can be freestanding. We can span up to 30 feet between posts, if you like, by using the correct size C beam to support the roof structure and panels. That is wide enough to park 3 cars under, with no posts in between to ding your car doors on!
