Storage shelters for personal, industrial and commercial use
Whether for private, commercial or industrial use, the possibilities of a storage tent are diverse. For example, it could be used as a storage shelter, a work tent, as a shelter for your vehicles or machinery, or even in the agricultural sector as stables for livestock.
In terms of dimensions, its all up to you. A 3x2m storage shed could be used to shelter bikes, a ride-on mower, or garden equipment. Since the side walls can be removed, you could even use it as a makeshift gazebo or canopy to provide pleasant shade in the garden during summer. Dimensions extend to 10x20m, which make it suitable for commercial storage or as a work tent when your business needs to expand quickly. Sidewall heights extend from 2 up to 4 metres high giving you the ability to order the tent that fits your requirements perfectly.
Our different product lines of storage tents are designed to be used year-round and are extremely durable. All frame constructions are fully galvanised, making them anti-corrosive. Only robust, durable PVC tarpaulin material is used. It is 100% waterproof and offers high UV protection. All tents are available with extra high-quality PRIME tarpaulins, which are 9 times more tear-resistant and certified fireproof according to European standards. Given their strength and durability, our storage shelters make an outstanding alternative to a permanent building structure.
Selecting a utility tent: finding the right outdoor storage solution
Calculate size: Your first task is to calculate how much storage space you need. Give particular thought to the sidewall height that will best fit your needs.
A Professional storage tent with wall heights of up to 4m allows you to maximise the storage area, by enabling goods and freight to be stacked. Even relatively small storage areas can be optimally used. It's important to consider any limitations in the outdoor space and ensure that there are no unexpected obstacles when setting up the tent, such as long branches or wiring.
Get creative: Put some thought into the possibilities for added work and storage space. If you want to keep cars, motor bikes or bicycles protected and dry over the winter, could you also do with some space for hobbies or games? If you have short-term storage needs, could the tent function as a comfortable break room or to provide shade for staff working outdoors when not otherwise needed?
Choosing materials: Products available on our site are divided into three categories, with differences in materials used: Economy, Premium, and Professional. Each category offers something unique in relation to the durability of the tarp, frame strength and stability, and of course, in relation to price. Our storage tent solutions are designed for year-round use.
So, which Storage Tent product line is going to suit you the best?
The Economy storage tent can be strengthened with a base frame or roof reinforcements and features a relatively light PVC tarpaulin with a weight of ca. 500 g/m². If you're looking to keep bikes or outdoor equipment safe and dry in a garden shed, this will do the trick just fine. Due to it being lighter and fairly simple to assemble, this storage tent is especially suitable for portable or short-term use. Carry and storage bags make it even easier to transport.
The Premium product line represents our mid-range shelters. Premium shelters feature a strong, ca. 500 g/m² PVC cover, a base frame and two-fold roof reinforcement. As a result, the storage shelters are very stable and durable. Schools and clubs may consider a premium shelter for use as a bike shelter or an outdoor canopy for students or members.
The Professional product line is part of our upper range of storage tents and in comparison to the other product lines, features an extra-strong frame. It also features two-fold roof reinforcement as well as a base frame, making it extremely stable. Heavy duty professional shelters are available with wall heights from 2 to 4 m. Two types of material are used: robust, ca. 550 g/m² PVC tarpaulins, as well as extra-resilient, ca. 720 g/m² moulded, Prime PVC tarpaulins. These are 9x more tear-proof than standard PVC tarps, are certified as flame retardant and can withstand temperatures of -30 to +50 Celsius.
The key advantages of a storage shelter
Fast, easy use: A storage shelter provides an ideal solution for on-demand storage and warehousing problems. You can create a sheltered area for materials, goods or machines in no time. While the construction of a permanent building will need to be permitted by authorities, a temporary outdoor structure saves you time and money. In general, storage tents can be set up immediately and are far more cost effective than a comparable permanent building structure.
These utility tents are also modular in design, giving you the option to increase the size of the sheltered storage area in any direction using connecting gutters. The outstanding quality and great functionality of our tents assists smooth work flow, for example, at construction sites or when used as Marquee at trade fairs.
Extremely flexible and mobile: assembling or dismantling a storage tent is quick work. As a result, a tent can be erected without fuss, and stored or sold if no longer needed.
Our customers use portable shelters for all sorts of purposes. While some need the tents only for short periods, a majority of customers need the shelter for long-term use and leave them standing over a period of years. The durability of each and every part means that these shelters can stay standing for years on end.
Winter Storage: Stable, weatherproof and secure
A storage tent must be suitable for all weather conditions. As well as high-quality frames, connectors and tarps, our storage shelters feature extra strong anchoring.
The tarpaulins of our storage shelters are made of stable, tear-proof PVC - which is comparable to a robust lorry cover. The PVC has a high level of UV resistance and can withstand hot and cold temperatures. Seamless roof and side panels sit especially tight against the frame, reducing the amount of surface area open to wind. Special pulley systems in some product lines further improve the secure attachment of the tarpaulin to the frame. From our mid-range of storage shelters upwards, the frame features a retractable system of support cables or poles. As a result, rain runs off without settling on the canopy.
The stable, fully galvanised frame is a big factor in the stability of the utility tent: Extra-strong poles, connector and solid ground pegs made of 100% steel withstand wind and bad weather, making the tent stable. When stability is a concern, storm protection straps (tie downs) can further improve the strength and load bearing capacity of the work tent.
Compare Storage tents to our other product categories
We have a huge selection of tents and temporary structures available on the website. In particular, you may be weighing up whether a storage tent or Temporary Warehouse/Industrial Tent might be your best choice.
Storage / Utility Tents: The ultimate in flexible utility tent design
For all of our models of storage shelter, the roof tarpaulin and wall sections are separate. The side walls can be individually attached or removed at intervals of 2m. This creates numerous possibilities for entrances on the sides of the work tent and even gives you the option of removing all side panels to use the shelter as a canopy during warmer weather. You may also want to add an awning or window panel to provide more light or shelter. Awnings are available for tents with a side height of up to 2.6m. For storage shelters with a width of 8m you have a choice of custom gable panels with either a standard zipped gate, a pull up gate including utility doorway for personnel, or a large sliding entrance gate.
Our industrial work tents use a seamless single-piece canopy and wall section, which is precisely and securely attached to the frame by a pulley system. The tarpaulin is easy to position on the construction and a high level of stability and safety is ensured. Industrial size warehouse tents are a good choice when you are looking for a work tent that offers more room (up to 10m wide) and absolute robustness.
It's worth considering a temporary garage as a small to medium outdoor storage solution. Smaller models are perfect for bikes and small machinery, while larger sizes, particularly in the professional product line, are perfectly suited for use as a carport.
Get increased stability for your work tent or storage shelter
You can effortlessly improve the stability of your storage tent. The Storm Safety Set comprises robust tension belts and ground attachments. Depending on the surface, professional ground pegs or concrete anchors can be selected.
The Safety Plus Package ensures a high level of stability. As part of the Safety Plus Package, storage shelters in the Professional quality category even come with an engineer's report detailing wind and snow loads. With this report we guarantee that the tent can withstand certain gale forces or force effects - the exact values can be found in the individual product descriptions for each product. Loads are calculated based on the entire construction being stabilised and secured using specially designed steel cables, anchors, and reinforced tension belts with ratchet tensioners. The work tent can be anchored to either hard or soft surfaces.
Economy and Premium storage shelters are not guaranteed for snow and wind loads, but the Safety Plus Package is still a sensible choice for increasing stability and wind resistance for these products.
Fire-resistant-certified storage tents
At House Of Tents fire-resistant certified storage tents are available in every product line, according to the following European standards: EN 13501-1 or CH-BKZ 5.2. This guarantees the highest level of security and complies with fire safety regulations required for public events. Insurance companies may require that you use flame retardant materials. Few of our competitors offer certification of this kind. Our fire retardant shelters can be identified by the logo, showing a crossed out flame.
