The spacious Rhino Shelter 40X60 Domed Truss Building from MDM Products, one of the top makers of outdoor structures in the country, is a great all-season structure. It offers a tremendous amount of space for your vehicles and general storage at a very affordable price.
Popular especially for commercial applications, the building is ideal for protecting your equipment and other property from the elements. It offers plenty of working area inside as the peak height is 18 feet, making it easy to accommodate even tall recreational vehicles.
The rugged all steel frame is designed for quick assembly in just a couple of hours or so with just ordinary household tools and all the required hardware is included. The frame is made of heavy duty galvanized pipe that has multiple coatings and is 2 3/8" in diameter. Structural wind braces are incorporated into each corner to further increase rigidity and ensure longevity.
The triple-layered polyethylene cover is UV protected and is a sharp white hue. The material is 24mm thick and has a 10 ounce per square meter weight. It is fire-resistant and waterproof, and scuff protection has also been added to help it stand up to the rigors of years of use outdoors. Heavy duty polyester rope is included to help tie down the main cover.
The large doors are wide enough even large commercial equipment to enter. The included mechanical crank makes opening and closing the doors a cinch for quick access.
With its large area, rugged construction, and classic design, the Rhino Shelter 40X60 Domed Truss Building will prove to be a useful addition for any business.

Anchors (Cable Hook) - Rhino Shelter portable structures come with very strong cable hook anchors that attach to the bottom cross rail of the pipe frame with 1-5/8" or 2-3/8" U-bolts depending on the size of the structure. Enough anchors are included for just about every application. Some customers prefer to have even more anchoring, and so extra individual cable hook anchors and U-bolts are available.
Anchors (Ground Auger) - Some customers prefer auger-style anchors, which work great in dirt and are reusable and easy to install. Six large 32 inch auger anchors are available that have a pull-out strength of 1200 pounds, the same as the included cable hook anchors. Six small 16 inch auger anchors are also available that have a pull-out strength of 800 pounds.
Liftgate For Delivery - The customer is required to have at least one person present to sign for the delivery and help unload the pallet from the truck. When your Rhino Shelter portable structure arrives from the shipper, the liftgate is a crane-type device that takes the giant pallet off the truck and places it in your driveway.
Without the liftgate, the customer will have to remove the box or boxes from the truck manually. This is usually done by opening the shrink wrap and moving each piece to its destination in your garage or backyard. This procedure usually only takes 15 or 20 minutes, and each piece may weigh anywhere from 40 to 80 pounds or less. The driver is not obligated to help unload the delivery, though we have not found this to ever be a problem.
Ideally two people will be present to accept delivery so that everything is unloaded quickly and moved safely, and the customer will have a hand truck for easier mobility. The liftgate is recommended for the very largest deliveries but is not necessary for most of the smaller structures.
Benefits of Rhino Shelter structures
Heavy Duty Galvanized Steel Frame - Typical Rhino Shelter structures up to 12' x 24' use 1-5/8" diameter tubing, while the largest structures bigger than 12' x 28' and above use 2-3/8" diameter tubing. Only the Party Tents, Party Canopies, and Steel Carports use a different frame system.
The double-dipped manufacturing process gives a triple-layered coating to provide added strength and protection against the elements and ensure that the frame is completely corrosion-free.
The inital flat strip steel is cold-formed and induction welded and then is subjected to two coating baths. The bonds zinc to the hot tubing and then a conversion coating above. The final protective coating is a clear organic polymer that gives the surfact its smoothness and brightness. These coatings will not flake off during construction or dull with age, and the frame construction and design ensures that your structure will be rigid and durable for years to come.
Industrial Grade Fabric - The strong vinyl covers used in Rhino Shelter structures have three layers in a triple stack weave for significant durability. The seams are heat-bonded to make everything fits perfectly over the frame.
The unique rip-stop polyethylene used prevents any small tears that occur from expanding. The white underside allows maximum light reflection inside your structure for added brightness.
The cover is UV-treated on both sides with a 10% chemical treatment, and the inner black scrim layer, unique to Rhino Shelter, blocks 100% of sunlight and UV rays from penetrating through the material. This allows covers to last an average of 7-10 years, depending on the level of sun exposure, while cooling the temperature inside. The effective lifespan of the cover is considerably longer than the covers used by competitors, and replacement covers are available at an affordable price.
Pre-Drilled Bolt-Together Frame - No cutting or drilling is needed during assembly, and power tools are not even needed.

Cable Hook Anchors - Rhino Shelters use 3 feet long anchors with rust-proof stainless steel anchors. The anchors easily go into the ground without digging with the drive rod that fits in the head of each anchor. Each set of anchors has a pull-out strength of 1200 pounds, four times higher than auger anchors typically used by other manufacturers. Rhino Shelter party tents are anchored by ground stakes while the metal carports use stainless steel pins.
Ratchet Straps - The heavy duty straps are unique to Rhino Shelter structures and allow the cover to go over the frame with the tighest fit possible. The reinforced webbed strap material and turnbuckle design will prevent any ripping and helps create a wrinkle-free look quickly.
The straps allow the cover to fit more squarely on the frame as well, making adjustment of the fabric on the bottom cross rail easier, and unlike rope, they will not stretch or allow the cover to get loose over time.
Designed To Withstand Winter Weather - Rhino Shelter structures are able to withstand winter storms in heavy snow areas. The roof is typically sloped or rounded and the covers are smooth to help snow slide off. The structures do not have engineered official snow load capacities as they are portable. In case snow accumulates, simply tap on the building's ceiling from the inside to dislodge it if it is safe to do so.
