Cover Technology modular structures can be fitted with accessories and finishes that allow them to be installed as permanent structures, even without foundations. Like temporary structures, permanent structures consist of a metal frame of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, shaped to connect both to the flexible PVC fabric membrane covering and to rigid panels. Normally, permanent installations are anchored by means of threaded rods, which secure the base plates; but structures can also be installed without foundation works, with steel micro-piles or spiral rods inserted into the ground. The PERMANENT STRUCTURE consists of an aluminium and steel frame covered with metal panels or 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 used for structures to be used in Industry and Airport markets, generally speaking where more complex, internal fittings are required for prolonged use over time. Upon request, roofing and walls in rigid materials can be designed to comply with any landscaping requirements.

The PERMANENT STRUCTURE is 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 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.
