Redpath Arch or Truss Shadehouse

The Redpath arch or truss shadehouse designs are another option to the more cost-effective flat roof shadehouse designs.
These designs use long life box section arch or pitched roof trusses and poles, with strong plate connectors and 12mm bolts and nylocks, and folded steel ‘walk-through’ long life gutters are standard. The arch or truss roofed shadehouses therefore offer a more permanent design option, improved overhead clearance and a fully design engineered solution that may also be converted to a poly clad greenhouse at some later date.
Standard spans are 8m, 9.6m or 10.65m. Any of these spans may be inter-connected side by side for a multi span layout. Lengths can be anything from 12m through to 150m or more.
