A carport can be many other things including a bus shelter or a Gym!

Carports are probably inappropriately named. Yes, they can be used for protecting your car but they can be used for many other purposes too. A carport can be many other things including a bus shelter or a Gym!

In particular, the cantilever carport is an exceptionally good –looking addition for any area that needs shade or shelter from the elements.

They say a picture is worth a thousand word, so let’s have a look at some recent uses of the Cantilever (Cantaport) carport. The mention of Cantaport carports is not just advertising; the Cantaport is an essential part of most of these uses as it is the only cantilever carport available in Australia which is built to the most exacting Australian Standards. It would be a silly person who tried to use a cheap Chinese copy with just a maximum 80km per hour wind rating as a school bus shelters as seen in this photo.

This school in Sydney took six Cantaports and erected them as school bus shelters. Not only do they do the job, but they are great looking addition to the school. So, if you want a bus shelter or a double or triple bus shelter, have a look at a Cantaport Cantilever carport range.

The obvious way is to use a carport is to protect vehicles from the elements. If you have a caravan, trailer or boat you want to protect, build a carport!

Do you need a great new entertainment area?

You can’t go past a nice hip roof carport or Dutch roof carport – only we now call them gazebos because they are built in the middle of your garden! Even a solar carport can make a great gazebo!

You can consider additional cover and privacy by installing screenings or outdoor blinds on your new gazebo. It’s’now just a matter of bringing in your outdoor furniture and barbecue your new entertainment area is complete in around a day!

Have a look at these photographs – what amazing looking patios! Yep, place your carports in a different location and call it a patio! And just how good do these Cantaport Cantilever Carports look as Patio roof kits?

What about a little shade for the swimming pool during hot summer days? I think this photograph says it all. Again your Cantilever carport is moved to a different position and we now call it a permanent pool shade cover!

Looking for a shaded area for gardening?

Looking for a shaded area for gardening? Or maybe looking for a place for your exercise equipment to free up space in the garage or your home?

The answer is build an outdoor gym from one of our outdoor Gymnasium Kits or build a permanent potting area from one of our Potting Area kits. They are just carport kits erected in a different location for a different purpose!

Wouldn’t it be great to give the kids a secure play area away from the sun and rain where they can still play safely outside? Try one of our outdoor play area kits! Again, its just a re-use of a great looking carport!

Everyone could use a carport for something other than parking a car. If you have the space and are thinking of a carport for your car, maybe  build a larger carport and use a part of it for another purpose. Not only can they look great but they add value to your home.Cantilever Double Carport-Cantaport 5.1m x 5.4m
