Ultraspan truss design Standoffshelters Overview

The Redpath Ultraspan truss design clear roofed dairy housing shelters offer a wide clear-span for simple "drive-thru" ability for farmers. The 10.65m span design has been used by HERDHOMES LTD and other popular market suppliers in the past. The 10.65m Ultraspan design will often be connected alongside a 6m or 9.6m width central service lane, and may be connected side-by-side to any other Redpath clear roofed dairy housing design to optimise the loafing area cover.

Redpath's truss series of buildings offer additional flexibility and options compared to the arch series housing, in that the truss series can incorporate roof ventilation systems in fully automatic or manually operated guise. + also the truss designs may be partially or fully clad in a hard cladding such as tin or polycarbonate if it were ever required.

Durashelter super-heavy duty 260 micron clear long life roof membrane is used on the 10.65m truss series designs. Durashelter offers a high level of light transmittance and allows PAR (photo-synthetic active radiation) to pass through it and this has a substantial effect on the drying of the floor and the floorings health. Excessive humidity and long periods of wet soggy floors can then be avoided, reducing the incidence of bacteria growth. This becomes particularly important during winter which also coincides with the shelters most intensive use.
