Easy build steel framework

Shadehouse Flat-Roof

The Redpath Easy-build flat-roof shadehouse offers shade and climate protection for a wide range of nursery crops, native plants and for hardening off.

Pole spacing’s are a nominal 5.8m in both directions, and each pole has a slide-connector at its top for simple on-site assembly.
The sides have brace poles extending out at an angle to provide strength and increased growing area.
All steel frame tubes are hot dipped galvanised, and the shadehouse is supplied with 50% long life knitted commercial grade shadecloth cladding. Alternative grades of shadecloth are also available.
Aluminium Duralock is used to securely hold the shadecloth in place at its edges.
A 5.8m 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 may include roof strapping and additional bracing.
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.
The flat-roof shadehouse is simple and quick to erect, often taking 2 persons just a few days* 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 surface.
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.
