Relatively recently, the production of tent garages began. This is a metal frame on which a fabric covering is stretched on the sides or only on the roof. This design helps to protect the car from snow, rain, direct sunlight and wind.
Canopy with a waterproof awning “Marquise”. It is an ordinary rectangular canopy, which is installed with an inclination to one side. The slope may or may not be significant, depending on the design. An awning for a canopy can be installed either on supports separately from a building or structure, or on special mounts screwed to the wall. You can have a look at some models on Shade N Net.
Such canopies made of awning fabric, in contrast to the “Marquis”, have a more complex frame. A fabric roof covers the frame to the ground, creating an impromptu roof and walls, ideal for a summer cottage or a hike, because the whole family can hide in such a tent along with a car.
The name of these sheds and their appearance makes us draw an analogy with a real garage, but it is still a shed, although it has a characteristic shape, an awning roof and walls. For cars, these canopies are a great option. You drive your vehicle under such a canopy, close the entrance with a fabric curtain and you can not be afraid for the safety of expensive equipment.
Benefits of an awning:
- mobility – the structure can be quickly disassembled and assembled in another place;
- there is no need to build a foundation – a fairly flat area;
- universality of dimensions, without reference to a specific car model;
- reliable protection against moisture, snow, the material withstands temperature drops from -50 °С to +70 °С
They are sold in departments for summer cottages and gardens, landscape, as well as through Internet sites, for example shade-n-net.com. The range is quite large.
