The Commercial shelters are the most popular shelter we sell especially suitable for Women and those may in some cases find the Industrial grade just too heavy to move about or open. It is important to buy the shelter which is right for you. I myself can open the Industrial shelter but i would make it look like hard work as i don't have the physical strength that a man has. The simple truth is that i prefer the Commercial shelter. My main reasons are that I can open it easily and I can lift it on my own. For someone like myself this is the perfect shelter for me. The Commercial shelter despite the fact that it is lighter then our Industrial shelter it remains very strong and robust.
What really makes the difference is the Frame Shape, the gauge of aluminium used in the bars, and the strength of the angles and connectors are all so important. So many tend to focus on whether the frame is a 40mm or a 50mm but there are so many more factors to take into account. Every difference in the shelter and the fabrics used adds to the cost of production. We strongly believe that we have found the best mix to supply to the Irish market.
The strength of aluminium which is used in the construction of our Pop Up Shelters is remarkable for the metal's low density and for its ability to resist corrosion. The Aluminium is cast into a hexagonal shape to be more resilient to bending vs square structured frames.
Heavy Duty Nylon clamps + nut and bolt on all cross bar sections for extra strength and less shaking in wind vs some companies who only use a nut and bolt.
Large base plates on each leg to provide an adequate area for placing a weight on your shelter leg.
Large fixed section of heavy duty velcro on the top corners of frame to help hold your canopy in place.
4 x tapped screw corners in the framework to screw through a brass eyelet in your canopy down into the frame for a tight secure fit. (This will help to prevent your top blowing off your frame which can happen in severe wind (most other companies do not provide this).
5 x Adjustable height settings vs only 3 settings by some other companies. Our shelter can extend to give a clearance of 6ft 8".
The Polyester Fabric used by O'Meara Camping has been Fire Tested by BTTG to British standards BS7837:1996 to ensure that our material adheres to all the correct Fire Certified requirements in Ireland. (Fire retardant fabric is just not enough for commercial use if your shelter material is not fire certified you can be asked to remove your shelter by the fire officer on duty. Your shelter must pass a naked flame test). We have seen some videos online showing various types of pop up shelters with fabric so light in quality and weight that a light wind lifts the fabric so easily this is not to be compared to our heavy material. The Fabric used by O'Meara Camping has been graded to 380Gsm. You pay for what you get. Video to view shortly. We have a showroom in Dublin where we welcome you to come in and see, feel and demonstrate our range of shelters.
