Certified vs. Standard Wind and Snow Load Rated Buildings: What's the Difference?

Not all wind and snow load rated shelters are built the same. When choosing between a certified wind and snow load rated shelter or garage versus a standard wind and snow load rated shelter, you'll find that all are made strong, but the certified wind and snow load rated buildings are premium quality and offer enhanced durability. Compare the buildings below and get to know the difference.

Whether you choose to store or shelter your classic car using the ShelterTech SP Series, or one of our configurable carport models, it's important that you maintain your classic car safe, protected, and under some kind of cover.


When it is left under an ordinary tarp, or exposed to the elements, the value of your classic car can depreciate. UV rays, the heat, bird droppings, and acid rain can cause the paint to fade and crack. Also, if a tarp isn't fitted right, the wind can get between it and your classic car, and the flapping of the tarp can scratch its finish. Additionally, humidity can't escape the tarp, and that leads to mold and mildew inside and on the surface of your classic car.

ASTM Certified Steel: Why It's Important for Storage

When you're storing a classic car, you don't want it to be in a building that will fall apart. ASTM certification assures that only quality raw steel is used to make the galvanized steel frame of your ShelterTech SP Series building. The strong, sturdy, ASTM certified galvanized steel pipes used to create the ShelterTech SP Series frame are resistant to rust and corrosion.

The Advantages of a Certified Wind and Snow Rated Shelter

ShelterTech SP Series buildings are wind and snow rated, which means they're ready to take on tough weather. That means the classic cars you'll store will be safe from the elements in your properly-anchored building. ShelterTech SP Series buildings are engineered to withstand tough winds and heavy snow, and will stay upright regardless of the weather.

The Benefits of our ultra-strong, rip-top uv-treated fabric

When the cover of your ShelterTech SP Series building looks great, the classic cars you store in them will too. Rugged ShelterTech SP Series fabric covers are made from a durable but flexible PVC fabric that has been specially engineered for outdoor use. Fire, rip, tear, mold, fungus, oil, and chemical resistant, these super-strong covers each come with a pro-rated 10 to 15 year warranty and will keep your classic cars safe in the toughest weather.

Build your own with configurable options

Do you have one classic car, or a dozen? ShelterTech SP Series buildings are fully customizable. Choose the ShelterTech SP Building that's right for the demands of your classic car collection. You can configure a building as long as 100 ft., as wide as 30 ft., a barn, peak, or round shaped structure, and with the cover weight and color of your choice.

Why You Need A Wind And Snow Rated Building

Wind and snow can damage your belongings. Whether you want to protect the vehicle you drive daily, your classic car, a boat, construction equipment, or farming equipment: it's important to invest in a tough storage building.


A building that is rated for wind and snow will stand up to the toughest weather, no matter what time of year a storm hits. Wind and snow rated buildings are specifically designed to stay standing when the weather is bad, which will also give you peace of mind. These buildings will also protect your items from anything else that falls from the sky: from tree limbs that can cause structural damage to bird droppings that can ruin the exterior of your car or boat. Additionally, they assemble quicker and are more cost-effective than a permanent structure.


When your valuables are stored under an Arrow Carport or inside a SOJAG Everest, ShelterTech SP, ShetlerTube, or ShelterCoat building, your items will be protected from the elements and other wear and tear that could cause damage.


When you're deciding on the best options for wind and snow rated storage shelters, first ask yorself how much space you'll need to store items. Then decide if you need an actual storage building, or if a carport might do the trick. Either way, these durable wind and snow rated buildings will certainly keep your items safe, even in the roughest winter weather.
