You and I know very well that we cannot fight against nature. So therefore let GenTent, the easy to install portable generator enclosure be your best way to keep your expensive portable generator safe next wet weather. These include downpours, snowstorms, hail, ice and freezing rain.
One of the major problems using a portable generator stems from the fact that they were not constructed to permit the safe use in damp conditions. However, power outages that can lead to the use of a generator are commonly caused by weather conditions, such as ice storms and hurricanes, that will result in damp conditions which may linger after the initial period of precipitation has passed.
Due to this there is an inherent conflict in the actions consumers should take in order to avoid both an electrocution hazard and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning hazard when the generator is to be used in damp conditions. The Cosumer Product Safety Commission made some recommendations in their 2005 staff report that were to be adhered to.
It was determined that to be weatherproof, a generator would need, as a minimum, a raintight or rainproof enclosure, in-use weatherproof receptacle covers, and ground fault protection for all receptacles. And this is where GenTent Enclosure comes in.

Preserve Air flow
GenTent wet weather safety canopy
Generators produce a lot of heat when working. Without efficiently dissipating the heat it will result in the overheating of the generator’s motor, which will in-turn shorten the life span of the generator. The engine of the generator will also not run efficiently if it is suffocated.
This is why manufacturers provide clear warnings never to use the generator in an enclosed area. GenTent has been designed intelligently to remain out of the way of natural airflow. It also incorporates an air pressure relief and gasses relief top cap. This ensures natural convection based airflow inside the canopy and out through the top.
Designed with water resistant materials
When it comes to waterproofing, the GenTent designers took every detail into account. It was designed with Velcro. And it also designed to drive rain from the sensitive electrical panel.
