Dairy & Animal Shade Shelters

Our popular animal Shadehouse are a cost-effective and practical all hot dipped galvanised steel framed design. The kits include all steel framework, shadecloth, cloth clamping systems, brackets and fasteners to complete the building. We supply nationwide and export throughout the Pacific.

Used to shelter from the sun , Dairy herds, Beef, Goats etc, We supply them in a range of modular sizes to suit the individual needs. Our design includes simple slide-together connectors for quick and secure assembly of the main frame. Only basic tools and skills are needed to erect the building.  The Redpath Shadehouses give owners speedier build times, improved durability and affordability over more traditional timber pole/wire & clip designs.

The tall 3.5m metre roof height provides clearance for farm machinery to be used. The animal Shadehouse is supplied standard with knitted commercial grade 45/50% shadecloth fitted to the roof.  The sidewalls are left open for air flow / cooling.
The Hot Dipped galvanised poles include a sleeved lower section to eliminate direct contact of animal effluent with the poles of the building. The poles footprint is 5.7m x 5.7m for simple access throughout the building for stock and light machinery.
The proven “Duralock”  Shadecloth fastening clipping systems is included to securely fasten the cloth to the buildings frame.

Redpath animal Shadehouses are designed to work reliably on a typical NZ site nationwide. The flat roof design does make them less suited to high snow or hail-loads.
Animal Shadehouses do not include design engineering for council as they have a non-water-collecting or water draining surface. (rainfall travels through the shadecloth). The design is mostly tolerant to being built on undulating ground.
