MaconFortress
Permanent storage for peace of mind

Our improved MaconFortress™ technology is attached in separate pieces across the trusses, minimizing risk, maximizing strength, and allowing quick replacement in the unlikely event of damage. Harboring against wind and rain, our keder system creates a continuous waterproof connection between fabric and frame without risk of wear points on the cover.
