Canopies And Other Covers

Some sort of protection for a conveyor lift is highly recommended and will prolong the life of the equipment.  During the winter season, this will minimize the need for overnight snow removal at start-up. Magic Carpet® lifts have a built-in motorized brush designed for use during operation, but this may not be feasible for significant snow accumulation. During the off-season, a protective cover will help to keep the system clean and prevent dirt and harmful UV rays from deteriorating the conveyor.

While some areas construct their own shelters, Magic Carpet Lifts offers a variety of coverings to fit any budget.


Our new polycarbonate canopy helps eliminate the need for snow removal maintenance.Increasingly popular as the average conveyor length continues to grow, a canopy can virtually eliminate the need for snow removal maintenance.  Magic Carpet Lift’s third generation canopy offers covered protection for ski lifts, walkways and overhead skywalks.

Constructed of continuous aluminum and polycarbonate plastic frame members, this canopy is designed as an attractive permanent resort architectural feature. These canopies are engineered for 100 mph wind and 100 pound per square foot snow loads.  The polycarbonate plastic is impact-resistant, features high UV stability, accommodates wide temperature ranges and can be easily replaced.  Aluminum extrusions are stretch-formed for a smooth appearance. Natural in color, or many anodized colors are also available.

Tarps are a great way to protect your MagicCarpet in the off seasonTarps

A simple tarpaulin can be designed to cover a lift in either a single piece or “shingled” in overlapping smaller pieces. When used as a single long tarp, a roller-type device can be a convenient way to store the tarp and allow for easy installation and removal (similar to a swimming pool cover system).

Tarps are constructed of 18 oz. vinyl coated nylon material and have perimeter grommets on 2’ centers. A variety of colors are available. Tarps are custom cut and sewn and priced per square foot.

Plastic Covers

Plastic covers are an effective method to protect your Magic CarpetCorrugated plastic sections are a very effective method to also protect the conveyor belt and walkway extensions from overnight snowfall and offseason storage.  The arch design naturally sheds the snow and pieces can be set alongside the conveyor during the day as a buffer for the equipment.

BLACK POLYETHYLENE is the less expensive of the two offerings, while the YELLOW POLYPROPYLENE product is heavier and more durable.  Both are available in standard size sections.
