Manufactured in New Zealand by Redpath, the Lifestyler greenhouse is a popular choice for Semi-commercial, Lifestyle farmers, Institutions, Schools, Councils or very large home use. This design with its pleasing to the eye  gothic profile and is supplied with full NZ Engineering design drawings and a producers statement for council building permit processing for the majority of NZ regions..
The Redpath Lifestyler uses a strong RHS steel main frame with Pre-drilled heavy plate connections and bolts to give simple construction yet great strength.

The Lifestyler series is offered standard with Duratough commercial greenhouse cladding in either Single-skin or thermally efficient Twin-skin clad form. Duratough cladding is 215 microns thick, and has a typical service life of 10 years or more. Duratough is an EVA based polymer with a high level  PAR (Photosynthetic Active radiation) transmission and 90% + light transmission This gives superior plant production whilst at the same time locking in latent heat for improved night-time temperatures and frost protection.
Redpath’s white pigmented Durashade film is also an option and it is popular for Nursery plant production where cooler temperatures and less direct light can be beneficial.  Redpath’s aluminium Duralock 2 cover clamping system is used to reliably secure the cladding to the structure even in NZs windiest locations.
