Standards & Tech Specs

Toro Shelters are designed inline with UK Building Regulations with respect to climatic, environmental aspects as wells as wind and snow loads. As a result all our structures are installed in strict accordance with the relevant British Standards or Eurocodes. Consequently, we can also install Toro Shelters outside of the UK that are designed to suit local conditions and code requirements. With this in mind all Toro Shelters frameworks and membranes are structurally analysed using state-of-the-art software.
