As a food truck service based in central Illinois, we experience a great deal of inclement weather and need to rely on our portable generators to operate in any conditions,” says Daniel Krause, owner, The Cracked Truck. “We purchased many GenTents to keep our generators fully protected from the elements and found it extremely easy and quick to assemble and disassemble. Now we can ensure uninterrupted business by operating our generators without worrying about them being ruined by rain – a great advantage for anyone in our service industry.”




Marine grade, made in the USA, and backed by a 3-year materials and workmanship warranty the new inverter generator protection gear includes a four-corner strapping system, especially designed adjustable bracing and frame mounting arms, fiberglass frame system and marine grade Stormbracer® Edition cover. Nearly two hundred GenTents are already in use by the National Guard CERFP teams across thirty-two bases covering the U.S., Puerto Rico and Hawaii.




“The new GenTent XKi mounting kit satisfies the need for an easy to install, GenTent innovated mounting method for inverter generators,” said Mark Carpenter, Inventor and CEO, GenTent Safety Canopies. “Now GenTents completely cover the entire spectrum of the portable generator marketplace and ensure safe generator operations for continuous power supply, avoiding electrocution and CO poisoning risks, anytime and anyplace.”



GenTent’s safe, inclement weather operating solution for 98 percent of the portable generator market, is 100 percent manufactured in the U.S., with over 5,000 units sold worldwide. GenTent products are engineered to be more affordable and convenient than stationary, steel generator enclosures, retrofit plastic sheds or DIY dog houses.


GenTents keep portable and inverter generators:

· Safe while running in wet weather by protecting the Electrical Panels, from any angle, including Blizzard and Hurricane force precipitation


· Portable and easily movable — with easy access for refueling and maintenance


· Naturally cool — unlike generator dog houses or other full canvas enclosures, cooling air is not blocked


· Able to naturally expel exhaust gasses so no buildup of poisoning gasses occurs
