Redpath Designs

Redpath designs of clear or white shaded roofed dairy housing shelters offer an efficient shelter system for NZ farmers. They are offered in spans of 6m, 8m, 9.6m, 10.65m 11.2m, 12.6m, 13m, 14m & 15m spans. All of these spans may be inter-connected with each other or they may include a central drive-thru feed-lane.

Ventilation can be an important consideration for the herd in summertime and Redpaths ridge mounted rack and pinion roof ventilation system offer superior management of internal temperatures and humidity by creating natural air flow as warm air evacuates through the opening vent. The roof ventilation system is usually fully automatically controlled however if required a manually operated roof vent can be supplied.

Duratough heavy duty 215 micron clear long life roof membrane is used. Duratough offers a high level of light transmittance and allows PAR (photo-synthetic active radiation) to pass through it and this has a substantial effect on the drying of the floor and the flooring’s health.
The sunshine through the clear roofing reduces excessive the likelihood of any wet soggy floors, limiting the incidence of bacteria growth and any ammonia build up
This becomes particularly important during winter which also coincides with the shelters most intensive use. Duraflex white shaded roofing is also a popular option

Redpath has more than 30 years experience in design and install with many hundreds of dairy shelters supplied and erected nationwide.
