Cover Technology shelters are multi-purpose, movable structures, suitable for air transport, able to ensure protection even in harsh weather conditions. Systems can be installed in very short times, directly on the ground, with no need for reinforced concrete plinths. Special extruded aluminium alloy profiles are used to minimize the weight of the supporting structure while ensuring the necessary strength. MULTIPURPOSE SHELTERS consist of an aluminium and steel frame covered with technical PVC fabric. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads. This construction solution is applied for shelters for use in the Industrial, Events and Civil Defence sectors, thanks to a very rapid, effective installation system (approximately 1,000 square metres of shelter erected per day by an 8-person team).

|Cover fire resistance class||Self-extinguishing – Flame Retardant Class 2|
|Operating temperature||-30 °C / +70 °C|
MULTIPURPOSE SHELTER structures are of modular design, allowing:
- VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS (open and enclosed structures, etc.), thanks to the wide range of accessories and equipment.
- INSTALLATION ON DIFFERENT SURFACES (asphalt, concrete, dirt, or sand) thanks to a special anchor system (with threaded bars, plates and nails or spiral bars)
- DESIGN FOR 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
- Provision of 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.
