Base Frame rails
The square tubing along the base of the building onto which the legs are attached.


The bow is a single piece square tubing bent to make the roof of the building.

Concrete Anchors
Sometimes referred to as wedge anchors. Concrete anchors used in building installations on concrete in place of the rebar.

Concrete with tubing  (Ground Concrete Support)
Sometimes referred to as wedge anchors. Concrete anchors used in building installations on concrete in place of the rebar.

Corner Braces
Corner braces are U-shape channels that are used to assist in reinforcing the structure of the building.  On all of our buildings, four 2 feet long corner braces come standard and they are installed on each corner of the building. Additional corner braces are available at an additional cost. We recommend the use of 2 feet long corner braces on each building leg (2 per bow). For buildings with legs that are longer than 8 feet, we recommend that customers upgrade to 4 foot corner braces on each corner and we also recommend that they be installed on each building leg (2 per bow).


Gable Ends
A steel panel, usually installed horizontally, with the same curve as the bow of the building. They can be installed on either end of the building and they extend from the top of the legs up. Gable ends can be installed vertically at an additional cost.


Garage Door
Our garage doors are the roll-up type. They retract into a cylinder above the door opening. We offer a variety of sizes up to 10' x 10'. Please note there are no windows in our garage doors.

Header Bar
Header bars are placed at the top of the door frame when a door opening is requested, whether it is an opening with or without a door (walk-in or garage) is installed.

J-trim is used as decorative trim underneath extra paneling on the sides of carports, around walk-in doors and windows.

L-trim is used as decoration on the ends of regular style carports to provide a finished look. L-trim is also used around the edges of garage doors and on portions of the Boxed Eve model carports.

Lag Bolts
Lag bolts are used to secure the building, in the place of rebar or concrete anchors, when installing on a wood platform. Should lag bolts be needed, they must be supplied by the customer.

Legs are the vertical lengths of square tubing that connect the bows (top) to the base rail (bottom). 12 Gauge legs are 6 feet to 12 feet in length. 14 Gauge legs are 5 feet to 12 feet in length.

Mobile Home Anchors
Mobile home anchors are used to secure the building in a ground installation only and they are used primarily on certified buildings. They are helical in design. They can be installed as an option on all other buildings at an additional charge.

Our panels are 29 gauge steel. They are available in standard lengths of 21', 26', and 31', and 13 different colors.

Rebar Anchors
Rebar is a common steel reinforcing bar. Our rebar anchors are made from this reinforcing bar and they are approximately 3 feet long. They have a 5/8" nut welded onto one end. They are installed through a hole drilled into the base rail and they secure the building in both ground and asphalt installations.

Roofing Horizontal
Roofing runs horizontal (front to back).  This is the standard style option.


Roofing Vertical (below)

Roofing runs vertically (up and down).  Additional Hat channel (U shaped metal runners) is installed so that the metal can be laid vertical.  This option requires a Box Eve / A Frame building style and a vertical roof option.  A vertical roof is a nice option to have.  Also notice the roofing trusses in the below photo.  Roofing trusses are not standard on all buildings, they typically are included on 25' to 30' wide units as a standard feature.  Roofing trusses are available on smaller buildings for an additional cost. 

HC is Hat channel - standard for vertical roofs.
RT is roofing truss - not always standard.  Ask..



Snow Braces
Snow braces U-shaped steel channels that are installed at the center bend of the bow all structures to reinforce the roof. They are also sometimes referred to as center braces.

We form our own steel tubing at our manufacturing facility in Texas . We offer as standard the 14 gauge 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" square tubing. As an option, our buildings can be constructed with a stronger 12 gauge 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" square tubing, at an additional charge.


Walk-in doors
Our optional walk in doors are 34" x 72" and they have a 9" x 9" window.

Our optional windows are 30" x 27".
