Wind & Snow
Different climates demand different engineering requirements that will determine the design elements of a yurt. We work with structural engineers to develop the strongest load capacities for your needs. Our experienced sales guides can help you decide which options are best for your situation.
(Compression Ring to Rafter Brackets)
The first element in an engineered yurt, CORR Brackets, strengthen the connection between the rafters and the compression ring to reduce the potential for rafter-twist. CORR Brackets are an exclusive Colorado Yurt feature and are included with every single yurt.
Big Wind Package
