Designed and Engineered for Sydney Carport Wind and Weather Conditions
Engineering wise, the area in and around Sydney comes under what is called wind region A1-5. This is on the lower end of the wind scale, in comparison to higher wind areas such as cyclonic regions. However our designs are conservative and stronger than others, and all carport kits include the relevant site specific engineering. This provides you with some peace of mind, because it complies with or surpasses current standards. It also provides you with the correct paperwork needed to submit to council for approval.
Made in NSW
Manufacturing of steel in NSW is largely done at the main steel plant in Newcastle. Regular daily and weekly runs to Sydney ensure that all carports are always available.
At the point of manufacturing, the frame is pre-punched, and materials are cut to size. By doing this you only pay for the material you ordered and saves you time when it comes to the installation. Once all parts are ready, everything is consolidated and professionly wrapped, ready for delivery.
Time frames can vary, from order to delivery, of about 6 to 10 weeks. This is so that your carport can come in your choice of size and colorbond colour. A flat low delivery fee is offered so that you get even better value for money.
Delivery is always subject to an accessible site, so it’s a good idea to be present on the day that your carport kit arrives. Marking a drop point as to where to place the materials helps with delivery. Even sending through some site photos or a home plan ahead of time can also be helpful for the transport company and driver.
Once the delivery is made, you’re free to start the installation, but we do recommend that you first unpack and check all the materials for correct quantity and size or length.
A bill of materials will be included to assist you of course, together with the engineering drawings for your particular site.
All up this makes for an excellent DIY Carport Kit project, or an easier, less expensive installation for your builder to do.
