V.L.A 13m,14m and 15m Ultraspan Overview

The Redpath V.L.A truss design Standoffshelter offers a clear-span for simple "drive-thru" ability for farmers. The V.L.A design may be connected alongside all other widths of Redpath buildings.

Redpath's V.L.A truss series of buildings offer the additional flexibility and options compared to the arch series of Standoff-shelters, in that the truss series can incorporate roof ventilation systems in fully automatic or manually operated guise.

Super-heavy clear long life roof membrane is used on the V.L.A  design. Durashelter 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 floorings health.
Excessive humidity and long periods of wet soggy floors can then be avoided, reducing the incidence of bacteria growth. This becomes particularly important during winter which also coincides with the shelters most intensive on-farm use. 

Redpath supply a factory warranty for its designs and the frame is heavily protected against corrosion. Poles that enter into the ground include a PVC sleeve outer protection for additional security of the hot dipped coating.

All Redpath shelters are supplied with high wind engineeering to suit New Zealands naturally windy climate and include a wind warranty.

Redpath has more than 30 years, and with many hundreds of dairy shelters supplied and erected nationwide giving us a vast experience in the Dairy and animal shelter industry.
