With a Cover Technology outdoor cover, garages to increase performance can be constructed quickly and easily. Thanks to the wide choice of colours and the availability of bespoke sizes, modular covers are able to fit perfectly into a wide variety of environmental contexts. The GARAGE construction consists of an aluminium and steel frame covered with technical PVC fabric or sandwich panels. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads. The key feature of the GARAGE structure is the creation of a central area for vehicle maintenance and a series of side areas and containers to accommodate functions such as a warehouse, an engineering workshop, a management office or toilet facilities.

GARAGE structures are of modular design, allowing:
- DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS (open hangar, runway hangar, tunnel hangar, large-door aeroplane hangar, helicopter hangar and servicing hangar)
- INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (anchoring with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
- DESIGN WITH A SPECIFIC SNOW BEARING CAPACITY, ranging from 60 kg/sq. m for the basic structure up to 400 kg/sq. m for areas with very high snowfall
- CE MARKING of the structural components in compliance with the EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 standard thanks to Cover Technology’s accreditation.
It is also important to note that structures are designed and constructed in compliance with the Italian Ministerial Decree dated 14.01.2008 (known as the Technical Construction Standards or NTC2008 with return time Tr 50 years) and in compliance with the Eurocodes.
