2) What windloads can the Round Pen Handle?
The Round Pens have been exposed to over 70 mph wind gusts without incurring any damage.
Please check out our Testimonials page and read how the Equi-Cover has handled in
hurricanes!   (Please refer to our pro-rated limited warranty for details).

3) What is the snowload that the Roundpen can handle?
We recommend snow loads no larger than 45lbs.psf. Due to the vinyl roofing component we
can not put a Roof Snow Load rating on the Equi-Cover.  The GatorShield Steel structure has
impressive strength but the vinyl roofing can give and stretch depending on temperature and
weather conditions. A light, fluffy accumulation of snowfall will weigh an average of 8lbs per
cubic foot and a wet heavy snowfall will weigh an average of 32lbs per cubic ft. Thus, a couple
inches of heavy, wet snow will pose more problems and cause the vinyl to stretch more than a
few inches of fluffy snow would. Responsible parties should ensure the roofs are continually
monitored during periods of heavy snow accumulation and remove snow accumulation as
needed. (Please refer to our pro-rated limited warranty and Maintenance Guide for details).
