About Creative Shelters
We have a large selection of canopies, canopy frame parts and tarps. Our kits include high quality joint fittings designed to be used with EMT tubing (electrical conduit) or chain link fence tubing. They include heavy duty tarps available in multiple colors and all the ball ties required for assembly. Our canopy kits are not only the low cost answer to those high priced shaky pop-up-type shelters or flimsier PVC pipe structures, but also provide unlimited applications. Due to the expense of shipping we do not include tubing with any of our kits. Tubing can be purchased at many building supply or fencing supply stores.


If you are interested in building your own canopy we have over 300 different fittings and tarps to choose from. Select from our steel EMT tube fittings in either 3/4 inch and 1 inch sizes or our 1 3/8 inch, 1 5/8 inch and 1 7/8 inch chain link fence tube fittings (fittings are used in the construction of a shelter to connect tubing at corners and joints). We carry fittings for flat top(90 degree), 102 degree slope, 110 degree slope and 120 degree slope roofs. We also carry many specialty fittings. See our canopy examples page for ideas. Our tarps are made of laminated heavy duty polyethylene with woven reinforcing cloth and come in sizes from 6 feet to 60 feet and in white, silver, green, and striped. Our selection includes tarps made of materials which are flame retardant, 100% sun blocking, and mesh for sun screen. To complete your design we carry high grade ball ties (bungee), foot pads, claw anchors, auger anchors, duckbill anchors, ratchet tie-downs, S-hooks, grommets, tarp tape, spring clamps, fabric clips (snap clamps), ZIPUP TM zipper. We would be happy to assist you in designing a canopy for your application or try our unique canopy design tool.
