Services

Installation

Slip Tube experts are extremely knowledgeable and efficient at installing our shelters and greenhouses as well as others. We have completed projects world-wide including Africa, Turkey, the Falkland Islands, plus many remote locations such as BC First Nations reserves with limited access. We take care of the logistics and deliver a high-quality building no matter the locale.

Roof/Poly Covers

We replace old/damaged covers on both shelters and greenhouses that are manufactured by Slip Tube or our competitors. Coverings vary from heavy-duty vinyl and polyethylene to 6-mil-polyethylene and are available in several different colours and treatments depending on the application.

Welding/Steel Repairs And Maintenance

Our custom shop allows us to manufacture almost anything you need to repair damaged or faulty parts and structural components. Due to the industrial use of our shelters and greenhouses, they can be prone to damage from heavy equipment operating inside. Our team constructs and repairs our buildings as well as other manufacturers.

Additions

If your Slip Tube building requires expansion or additional components after the original purchase, we can add length and height, roll-ups for ventilation, light deprivation covers, shade cloths, doors, mechanical equipment, garage doors, curtain ends, and much more. Slip Tube is a custom shop providing versatility and affordability to meet every need.

Shelter/Greenhouse Relocation

Slip Tube buildings are durable and can withstand being moved for relocation; we also reinstall old buildings that have been resold to new customers. Our experienced crew can knock down an existing building, usually in one day depending on its size, and relocate it to a new site. Reinstallation is quoted based on size, location and application of the building.

Cement Lock Block Delivery And Placement

Many of our industrial buildings are anchored to cement blocks to gain height, provide protection from machinery, or to satisfy engineers’ lift requirements. Our expert crew lays out the proper positioning and guides the crane operators for perfect placement.

Engineering

Slip Tube offers site-specific engineering required by certain customers to satisfy the jurisdictions in which they operate. We provide structural B1 and B2 drawings to be submitted to the applicable authorities at an affordable price.

Design/Auto Cad

Our designers provide detailed drawings to help you and DIY builders better understand the structures for an improved installation. Exact measurements are provided and details are outlined to assist you.

Supervision/Instruction

Many of our customers cannot build Slip Tube structures on their own or choose not to hire our crew to completely install the building. In these instances, we provide a supervisor at a reasonable rate to help you through the more difficult aspects of installation.

Supply Only

Slip Tube provides almost anything imaginable for DIY builders who want to create their own greenhouses or shelters. Whether it’s springlock and wire required to attach poly to a greenhouse frame, or custom welding work, Slip Tube’s competitive price points on parts and poly/fabric provides the ideal solution for all your projects.
