This metal hardness chart organizes different types of metal using the Mohs hardness scale, a metric used by scientists to determine the scratch resistance of different minerals. With diamond at the top of the scale at a score of 10, elements and alloys can fall along the metal hardness scale from 10 (the most scratch-resistant) to 1 (the softest). We’ve arranged common metals in order of hardness in our handy chart and in this list. Our list includes different kinds of metal from metallic elements like silver to common alloys like steel.
Mobile: Similar to a manufactured building, this type of dwelling is delivered to the customer pre-assembled, but it is built on wheels.

The triple-steel garages are built in 26-foot, 28-foot, and 30-foot widths. We also have 40-foot-wide models, available in lengths of 32 feet, 34 feet, 36 feet, 38 feet, and 40 feet. The lean-to model comes in 36 feet, 42 feet, 44 feet, 46 feet, and 48 feet. It has 12 feet on both sides of the building. The lengths start at 21 feet and get longer in 5-foot increments: 26 feet, 31 feet, 36 feet, 41 feet, 46 feet, 51 feet, 56 feet, 61 feet, 66 feet, 71 feet, 76 feet, 81 feet, 86 feet, 91 feet, 96 feet, and 101 feet.

A fabric or vinyl tarp is better than nothing, but it’s still not an effective cover for your RV.  It’s awkward and cumbersome to put on and take off, and it still leaves your RV exposed to the elements. And have you ever tried to remove a tarp that is covered with 6 inches of snow and ice?  Not fun, and not easy.  A better place to store your RV is under a covered metal carport (RV carport) with a solid surface. Better still, keep your RV both safe and secure inside a fully-enclosed metal garage!
We have three options available for your RV cover, including our most popular option, the regular roof cover. This roof cover is ideal for areas where temperate climates and mild weather is the norm. For snowier or more wintry sections of the country, we recommend our other two types of roofs, since they are engineered to withstand more extreme conditions. The boxed eave roof has an A-frame design shelters and is made with stronger material that withstands more brutal weather than the regular roof type shelters. Our vertical roof shelters for our RVs has a vertical design that allows snow to dissipate quickly, which is recommended in areas where harsh weather is common. Work with us to determine which roof type best suits your needs.
Here at Carport Central, you can find hundreds of metal carports online as well as metal garages. Metal carports can have open sides, open ends, or be partially closed. As they are without walls or have partially enclosed walls (side panels or cut panels), steel carports are also usually less expensive than the metal garages in our online shop. Our helpful building specialists will take your needs and budget into consideration when suggesting which steel building best suits your needs.
At Alan’s Factory Outlet, we have RV shelters for sale made with sturdy metal sheets that wrap around the support structure to create a roof and two partial sides or a roof and one full side. Carports that are partially enclosed provide ventilation while still protecting your property. Another benefit of our partially enclosed RV carports is that you’ll have easy access to your vehicle to clean it, load it, or just climb in for a quick inspection. But if you prefer, we also have affordable RV storage that is entirely enclosed.
Custom sizes for all sorts of carport applications; 20 year warranty on all 12g steel carports, and the option of a portable carport that could be moved if the need were to arise. Our quality metal carports can be the ideal storage solution for both the busy homeowner and the bustling commercial business. Using the professional installation service, you would not have to worry about putting together car port kits all on your own. With all the benefits a residential or commercial business has to gain through the use of a steel carport; any other choice just doesn’t look as good, and definitely isn't as cost effective as our carports.

There are three types of RV carports – regular roof, a-frame roof, and vertical roof. We provide you with the choice of roof style and wall panel style, all depending on your personal preferences. You are also given the options of a roof-only carport, a carport with panels or a fully-enclosed garage. Your customization options range from the regular style roof (good) to boxed-eave style roof (better) to vertical style (best) that doesn’t allow anything to settle on your paneling. Our RV carports can be built starting at 12′ wide going up to 60’ wide; however, you need to keep in mind that your RV carport cannot be built taller than the width.

“Timing was an extremely important factor for us and we knew no one in America could get a steel building on site quicker than Armstrong Steel - so the choice was easy. With all of the unscrupulous steel building companies out there today, we're glad we chose Armstrong Steel because we got what we paid for and THEN some AND they came through in a pinch!”
