Redpath Sheep shelters

Used throughout the country, the sheep rearing shelter normally would have a soft floor (sawdust or post-peelings) base, and Redpath pay special attention to protecting the steel poles from corrosion by using a rubber sleeve over them at ground litter contact points. The roof cladding is usually long life Durashelter clear, or Durashade white shaded film or Roll up blinds are optional on one or both sides of the building.  
The Redpath sheep shelters are made up of an all bolted RHS box section tube design, making them straight-forward to assemble by the owner or Redpaths contractor and also make them very strong in high wind sites.

Sheep rearing houses are most popular using the 9.6m arch span in either single or multiple connected spans, although Redpath offer a 8m, 10.65m, 11.2m or 12.2m series also. Ventilation of the shelter is either by natural side or roof vent systems + air forced fan ventilation is an option also
