Taking care of your PVC hangar

Recommended for annual inspections:

Metal constructions – make sure all bolts fastenings are in plase and tightly fixed;
Tent – make sure the tent does not have any mechanical damages, also that the tent is well tightened around the frame;
Snow load endurance – as it is with every structure, snow accumulation observed during winter. If snow accumulation occurs, press gently against the tent from the inside to get rid of the snow. Fastening ropes – make sure the fastenings that fix the roof in place, are undamaged and well fixed.

Comparison with other hangars on the market

As we know, there is a wide range of hangars on the market – covered and metal hangars, wooden constructions, inflatable models. Many people are confused by the range, because every seller only praises their own product. The right choice is usually in the middle.

For example hangars with metal walls seem safer and sturdier than covered hangars. And that is usually the case too. But in some cases the thickness of the metal sheet is only 0.2-0.4mm. That can not be taken as protection for your property. You might as well wrap your things in tinfoil. The only way to prevent theft is with anti-theft alarms and security guards.

A good metal hangar is two-three times more expensive than a covered hangar we offer. At the same time, there are many models, which are a little bit more expensive. But pay attention to details – the construction of the frame, distance between arches, thickness of the pipes, thickness of the tent etc. Do not forget that snow accumulates on metal, unlike on covered hangars.

Another extreme is hangars that are based on temporary gazeboes (thin pipes to hold up the construction, fastened to the ground with tent pegs). These models are very cheap but would you like to be inside one during a snowy winter or a storm?

So, simple advice: try to get as much information as you can, don’t only look at a cheap price and pretty charectarizations. It is important to find a hangar that fits YOUR price range, needs and quality.

The strengths of our hangars

All hangars are adjustable to fit different climate conditions. The is no universal model that fits both Spain and Finland.

  • Value for money. We don’t overprice our hangars, as we would be selling gold. But if we would lower it, it would immedietly affect the quality. Manufacturers always have ways to save on materials, but we don’t want to do that. Also we are always developing our hangars so we do not react to problems, but rather prevent them alltogether.
  • We offer warranty and maintenace to all our hangars, greenhouses and shelters.
  • Almost all our models are readily available. Usual delivery times are a couple of weeks after purchase if the product is not in stock.
  • Quick and easy assembly. If you wish to assemble the hangar yourselves, we can still help you. Instructions come with all hangars and on our website there are pictures and videos of assembly. If needed, our workers can always help you.
  • Easy to repair. In case of the tent tearing, you can always paste or weld it back together, without taking the whole construction apart.
  • Mobility. If need arises, you can move the hangar to anothers site. That can be done with minimal effort. It is very common if you rent a lot with a hangar already installed.

Hangar ventilation

Ventilation is a process where old air exits the room and is replaced with fresh air from the outside. During ventilation, if need arises, air is filtered, warmed or cooled, becomes dryer or more humid. That provides:

  • more oxygen(O2) in the air,
  • less carbon dioxide(CO2)
  • getting rid of excessive humidity,
  • removal of dirt in the air.

The easiest is natural ventilation, where the air gets into the room through windows, doors, gates, ventilation shafts etc. Another way is forced ventilation, using fans. This also a possibility to get air out of the room ( fans suck the air out) and new air in. These ways can also be combined. .

So if the specifity of use shows that natural ventilation is not enough (using the hangar for cattle/animals or for storing dangerous substances), you should also install forced ventilation.

Fighting condensation

If warm and humid air react with a cold surface (in this case the tent) the humidity in the air will stard condensing, in other word it will become water. That happens because cold air can not hold as much moisture as war air. One way to fight it is using anti condensation films.

Anti condensation film, or waterproof film, is used to isolate the roof. It is usually used on gable roofs. Currently the main type of these films is dispersive film. It will allow the air to rise without letting the humididty through. That way the roof can “breathe”. Fixing the film is very simple, which allows it to be used in our hangars, should the need arise.
