If you live in an area that is hot and you need a large storage area with maximum air flow, the Shelter Logic 12x20ft Partial Coverage Canopy is the way to go. This canopy is essentially a mini garage or shed, but has no sides to allow for the best air flow. This would be idea if you have equipment that you use often or cars that can't fit in the garage. The canopy is big enough for almost any piece of equipment or collection of stuff that you would like to put under the canopy.
The canopy is really fast and easy to set up, but the quality doesn't decline because of it. The beams and supports of this portable canopy are made of beam-welded tubes that are two inches in diameter. Once these tubes are made, they run them through a stressful test called the Rhino Shield process. This will ensure that the pieces are secure and protected in the best way. Once that test is completed, the tubes are then coated in a powder finish. This finish makes the poles resistant to rust and weathering. On top of that they are coated with an anti-aging and an anti-fungal agent. These two coats will ensure that the poles don't become weaker with age, nor will they start to grow mold or mildew when the canopy is packed away.
The top of the canopy goes through just as much of a test as the rest of it does. The fabric of the canopy is a triple-layered polyethylene that is UV treated. This treatment will contain UV protection for anyone or anything under it. The canopy is also fade resistant, meaning that not only will the things under the tent not be affected by the weather, but neither will the canopy itself. The canopy will also have the anti-aging and anti-fungal protection over it. With these types of materials you really can't go wrong.
You will also find that the airflow of the tent will keep things under control. Many times people will not notice how hot something can get if there is no air conditioner to keep it cool in the summer. It is really something that you need to take notice of when you are putting something in another garage or storage location that can be effected by extreme heat or sun. The airflow the Shelter Logic Canopy provides will keep the item(s) at a more uniform temperature than many other storage options out there, and will be significantly cheaper than most other options as well.
Don't worry about picking up hardware either. The Shelter Logic canopy comes with all of it's own hardware and materials. So you can enjoy your canopy moments after you take it out of the box.
