Cover Technology can proudly boast of extensive experience in the installation of temporary outdoor structures, capable of providing extensions and continuity for a limited period in the event of renovations or weather damage, for example. Temporary structures have a metal supporting frame of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, connected together by steel or aluminium joints. The structural skeleton consists of a series of trusses supported on the ground by steel plates fixed to the installation surface. The anchor system may comprise plates and threaded rods or plates and steel micro-piles to allow the structure to be installed without the preparation of foundation works. The TEMPORARY STRUCTURE consists of an aluminium and steel frame with a cover in technical PVC fabric membrane. 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).

CONFIGURATION
Width Minimum 10.00 metres / Maximum 40.00 metres
Length Standard modules 05.00 metres / total length infinite
Side height Minimum 02.50 metres / Maximum 04.00 metres
Wind resistance Minimum 25 m/sec / Maximum 41 m/sec
Snow resistance Minimum 60 daN/m² / Maximum 400 daN/m²
Cover fire resistance class Self-extinguishing – Flame Retardant Class 2
Operating temperature -30 °C  /  +70 °C

The TEMPORARY 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.

The supporting frame consists of extruded aluminium alloy profiles, creating a lightweight structure that withstands all weather conditions. Roofs and side walls are in flame-retardant, waterproof, very tough, PVC fabric. Naturally, there is a very wide selection of materials to suit the different uses and locations of structures. The main materials used in construction of the TEMPORARY STRUCTURE are:

MATERIALS
Main structure components Aluminium alloy profiles
Base plate elements Hot-dip galvanised steel
Cover Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Side walls, if required Modular sheets of Class 2 Flame-Retardant PVC / Sandwich panels
Doors or openings, if required Folding vehicle doors / personnel doors
Metal cables Plastic-coated steel cable
Supporting surface Plinth not required
Anchor systems for concrete surfaces Threaded bars fixed with structural vinyl/epoxy resins
Anchor systems for firm ground and asphalt surfaces Steel nails driven into the ground
Anchor systems for loose ground Continuous spiral coils or rods

Apart from the STANDARD PVC fabric membrane, the cover may be in:

  • PVC fabrics with blackout treatment for sun protection
  • Thick PVC fabrics (strong cover)
  • Low-emission (silver-coated) or insulated PVC fabric membranes
  • PVC fabrics with special coating
