Shelters & Pavilions
The Manufacturer

Americana Building Products by Hindman Manufacturing Co., Inc., of Centralia, Illinois, has been manufacturing building products for 47 years. Through the years, we have developed a variety of shelter lines built with quality material and structural integrity you can count on.

All-Metal Recycled Shelters Structures
Structural rafters and columns are steel unless otherwise specified. The steel conforms to: ASTM A 36 or the equivalent specifications. All metal components have one coat of paint in your choise of color over a factory primer.

Most shelters are avilable in two styles: The tubular rafters and columns or the C Channel rafters and columns.

Roof decking is high strength, recycled aluminum with stucco embossed, painted finish. Optional paint Galvalume steel is also available. These materials are rolled into panels with a watertight, snap lock connection and a 3 V shape with 2 1/2" ribs, 8" on center.
