FLAT ROOF SHADEHOUSE

Easy build steel framework

Shadehouse Flat-Roof

The Redpath Easy-build flat-roof shadehouse is an affordable all steel framed shelter that offers shade and climate protection for a wide range of nursery crops, native plants and for hardening off.

Supplied in sizes from 100sqm – to 10,000sqm, Pole spacing’s are a nominal 5.7m in both directions, and each pole has a four-way slide-connector at its top for simple connection of the main frame parts and speedy on-site assembly.
The sides have angled brace poles extending out to provide additional strength and also an increased growing space.
All steel frame tubes are hot dipped galvanised, and the shadehouse is supplied with 50% shade grade long life knitted commercial shadecloth cladding. Alternative grades of shadecloth are also available.
Aluminium Duralock is used to securely hold the shadecloth in place at its edges.
A 5.7m opening is left in one sidewall for an exit entry point, although you can add more openings if required.  A sliding door can be added as an optional extra also.

Redpath Easy-build shadehouses are suited to medium wind exposure sites. A higher wind upgrade option is also available which includes more frequent fastener clip for the roof and some additional bracing if required.
Flat roof shadehouses are not suited to heavy snow load or excessive hail regions, we recommend a Redpath arch or pitched roof truss shadehouse for those applications which will allow snow and hail to slide off the roof.
The Redpath flat-roof shadehouse design is both simple and quick to erect, often taking 2 persons just a few days/weeks* to erect  (*size dependent)

Redpath easy-build Shadehouses are supplied in kitset form, they are often assembled by owners or local fencing contractors. They do not include design engineering for council as they are a non water-bearing / draining surface. (rainfall travels through the shadecloth)
The steel poles can either be connected to your own timber rammed pole* or may be concreted directly into the ground. (*timber pole not included)
Pictures show current design as of date of writing, Redpath flat-roof shadehouses like other Redpath designs are under continuous design development to best meet our clients needs.
