New Covered by GenTent™ OEM Program Enables Portable Generator Companies to Custom Brand Patented Portable Generator Safety Canopy

Unlike typical generator doghouses or other full canvas enclosures, the GenTent system allows the generator to cool itself and ensure exhaust fumes are expelled to prevent buildup of poisonous gasses. “Champion Power Equipment is a thought leader and forward thinking company that takes safety and proper product usage seriously,” said Mark Carpenter, CEO and Founder of GenTent Safety Canopies. “As an early endorser of the GenTent product line, we are pleased that the generator tent product category is growing and to have Champion as our first Covered By GenTent® partner.”
