Choosing Reliable Carports

  1. 1. Choosing Reliable Carports
  2. 2. • Carports offer homeowners an inexpensive solution to protecting their vehicles from damaging elements like rain, wind, and sun. They've also become opportunities to accentuate the appearance of property thanks to unique designs and customizable features. • However, carport structure and stability should matter just as much, if not more, than its design. The good news is that some carport manufacturers, like Fair Dinkum Sheds, offer homeowners both. Choosing Reliable Carports
  3. 3. • Unstable carports pose threats to homeowners, their vehicles, their homes, and their surrounding properties. • Inclement weather can cause carports to collapse and dissemble, threatening the safety of objects in their path. Numerous carports collapsed after 2006's Hurricane Larry as a result of inadequate construction. • These inadequacies were identified in carports in every region of the country. Why Reliable Carports Matter
  4. 4. • Customers should look for carports manufactured by companies that have earned ShedSafe™ accreditation. • Companies that sell ShedSafe™ accredited products have met the strict design and construction standards set forth by the Australian Steel Institute. • These criteria include an evaluation of carport materials and the extent to which its design will allow the carport to withstand inclement weather. What to Look For in a Reliable Carport
  5. 5. • All Australian carport manufacturers can receive ShedSafe™ accreditation if they meet the Building Code of Australia’s guidelines. • Accreditation evaluations are conducted by third-party engineers. • ShedSafe™ accreditation cannot be purchased by carport manufacturers. ShedSafe™ Accreditation
  6. 6. • How is the carport installed? To ensure proper assembly, have carports installed on-site by a distributor's professional team. • What is the grade and gauge of the carport steel? Both should be based on your carport's chance for exposure to inclement weather and its wind rating. • What other industry accreditations/ affiliations does the manufacturer have? Fair Dinkum Sheds is also a member of the Australian Steel Institute and Steel Shed Group Additional Considerations for Carport Reliability
