Quick-build Flat-roof shadehouse

Redpath shadehouse is an affordable, simple and speedy to build steel frame shelter that offers shade, wind climate protection & a % of frost protection for a wide range of commercial crops, berries, nursery and native plants etc.

Suitable for small, medium or large growers each vertical pole has a bespoke four-way connector that gives simple “slide-together”  assembly of all overhead and sidewall steel rails. All steel framework is pre-cut to length and ready for assembly with only basic tools and skills required to erect the building.

The standard roof height is 3m which gives overhead irrigation systems the ability to offer good water coverage and also allows for light machinery to operate within the shadehouse. Our design includes perimeter sidewall raker stabiliser poles to give stability, strength, and additional growing space. All of the steel framework is hot dipped galvanised and high quality stainless steel cables are used at the base for longevity.
Redpath shadehouses include NZ’s most popular 50% shade grade long life fully knitted commercial shadecloth cladding on the roof, and sides.  Alternative claddings such as 30% or 70% Shadecloth, Birdnetting,  Insect netting etc. may also be fitted as an option to the roof or side walls.  The design offers the flexibility of being able to fit different cladding types or grades to the various roof or sides sections of the shadehouse – For example you may choose to have sections of the roof in the 30% shade and others in 50% or 70% shade fabric, and also choose the sidewall cladding in different grades or types.
Proven aluminium Duralock and Omega cable clip is used to securely hold the shadecloth in place on roof rails, side poles, corners and the base of the building.

A 5.7m ‘walk-in” opening is included as standard within one wall to be used as an entry, or you can add more openings if required.  An aluminium sliding door with aluminium track may be also be added as an optional extra to operate within the 5.7m openings.
Redpath quick-build shadehouses are suited for most NZ sites. Flatroof shadehouses are not suited to heavy snow load regions, we recommend a Redpath arch or pitched roof truss shadehouse for that situation.
If you do not wish to use concrete to secure the steel poles into the ground – You may connect the poles to your own rammed timber pole(s)*  (*timber pole and pole modification not included)

Redpath quick-build shadehouses are supplied in kitset form, and due to their simplistic construction they are usually almost always assembled in small or large areas by their owners with only basic tools and experience. They do not include design engineering for council as they are a non water-bearing / draining surface. (rainfall travels through the shadecloth)
