The Sonoran (Standard) Carport :

Sonoran Style Carport

Often imitated but never duplicated, Absolute Steel’s Sonoran carports are the ones that started it all.  This is such a popular structure, we call it the “standard” carport.

These versatile steel structures come in a wide range of sizes: widths from 10’ to 40’ wide and heights from 7.5′ to 15.5′.  Standard main frames are 2″ x 3″ – 14 gauge galvanized steel for rugged durability.  We also offer an optional 2″ x 4″ frame for applications or areas that require a heavier frame.

Sonoran carports feature a horizontal application of the panels with rounded eaves so sides can extend down to the ground in an unbroken pattern if that’s what you want.

As is the case with all our structures, Sonoran metal carports come in a 5′ On Center frame system or a 4′ On Center frame system that can withstand heavy snow load areas. This is an easy structure to assemble.

The Mohave Carport :

Mohave Style Carport

The Mohave carport’s main distinction from the Sonoran style is the vertical panel application which makes it the most compatible for shedding snow. When customers are in an area that exceeds a 45 psf snow load, we recommend the Mohave style carport.

A gable end panel is available for this model, as are additional side panels for one or both sides for better protection.  This image shows optional side panels on both sides.

This metal carport must have the various trims such as ridge cap, gable and eave trim which adds to the installation and the cost but its looks blend well in residential settings.

The San Tan Carport :

Limited to only a few sizes, the San Tan carport most resembles the Sierra’s profile but it’s priced competitively because it doesn’t have the various trim applications. A nice feature about the San Tan is the eave overhang, which varies from 4” to 6” depending upon the width of the carport.  This is an easy system to install, most sizes taking a simple tools and a couple of people a few hours.

The Arcadia 5000:

Arcadia 5000

The Arcadia 5000 carport can be nice alternative for a more decorative approach to your weather protection needs.  Rather than a carport with a metal panel for a roof, the Arcadia 5000 features a transparent roof that allows light to pass through.  This can make it a more attractive option when using this structure as a shade structure in a commercial or residential setting.

The Arcadia is a strong and stable, requires no maintenance and has long term durability. Attention to small details such as a gutter system to drain water away and anchoring hardware gives an added value to your carport.

The Arcadia 5000 is a high performance carport that was designed to be easily installed by 2 people and requires no experience, no special skills, and no special tools.

  • Width: 142.5″ (11.875′)
