Calf “Poleshelter”



The Redpath Poleshelter is used for basic protection of stock from the elements.

The Poleshelter meets the needs of customers seeking a competitively priced shelter that will provide simple shelter wind/ rain and frost protection
Poleshelters are supplied as a ‘roof only’  DIY kit,  The customer supplies their own timber poles and attaches the Redpath Pole shelter roof to them.
Customers can choose the pole height that best suits their needs , for Calves this may be anything from 1.5m through to 3m poles. Some customers will choose fit a timber rail along the pole line (as pictured above) – but this is not usually necessary as the roof hoops of the Poleshelter can be connected directly to the poles.
Usually the timber poles are rammed into place and there is no concrete used for foundations. The shelter roof structure is speedy to erect with the use of common farm equipment, and basic tools such as drills, stringlines, stepladders only required.
Redpath provides an assembly guide and offers “over-the-phone’ assembly assistance 8-5 weekdays.

The Poleshelter will protect from direct rainfall with the rain water falling to the ground off to the sides of each hoop. The convenient 9m span of each hoop gives plenty of space, and you can connect as many span widths as you like “side-by-side” or make the shelter as long as you requir
