The size of the Wilmington shelter is expressed by the width and the length of the roof area. For example, a 30’ x 44’ Wilmington shelter is 30’ wide and 44’ long. The pressure treated laminated wood arches are spaced at 8’ intervals in the length direction of the shelter. In the example referred to, there would be six sets of arches spaced 8 feet on center. The roof decking would extend past the arches two feet at each end of the shelter. In the width direction, the roof would extend past the center-line of the arches 2’ 0.



Pressure treated, prior to gluing, laminated wood arches designed to be surface mounted in concrete for stability. The lumber for the arches is treated prior to gluing which affords full penetration of the core.


Galvanized steel base shoes custom fabricated for securing the base of the surface mounted arches to the concrete foundation.


The ridge beam is engineered and sized in combination with the size of the shelter and the shelter’s arches for the required structural support.
