Add real estate value to your home and enhance your outdoor living or storage space with our high snow load capable Grizzly Shelter Ltd. powder-coated steel truss awnings and carports. Our custom manufactured (in Canada) structurally welded CSA approved trusses are perfect for homeowners seeking a stylish and durable solution for patio awnings, carports, or pole barns. Their high strength comes from a combination of 2" and 1" square steel framing and heavy duty steel plate connections.

Our steel trusses allow you to easily create a shaded area for entertainment or relaxation, or a robust carport or awning with up to a 95+ lbs per square foot estimated snow load to protect vehicles. These trusses can also work well for covering larger areas as pole barns for farming, feed storage, animals and livestock. They can be great for outdoor recreation, events or just a covered work area to fix up boats, cars or more, the sky is the limit!

We provide the powder coated steel trusses in the colour of your choice to match your home or existing roofing or exterior siding etc.. We can also quote you on customizing the length of trusses to suit your needs for covering a deck or patio.  We assemble, weld, paint and ship trusses from Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa regions currently, but are always adding locations.

TIP: We can customize the powder coated steel truss colour to match your house.


Our trusses are ideal for constructing a single-sloped (4/12 or 18 degree slope angle) pent roof awning, ranging from 8 to 12 feet in depth. To ensure stability, especially in snowy regions, we recommend a maximum truss spacing of 8 feet apart for supporting up to 95 lbs per square foot of snow load. For vehicle protection, use the trusses to create a 12-foot wide carport. Alternatively, join two trusses for a 24-foot wide peaked covering, suitable for two vehicles, with a 10-foot connecting bar provided.
