Redpath Goat shelters
Used throughout the country. The goat shelter normally would have a soft floor (sawdust or post-peelings) base, and Redpath pay special attention to protecting the steel poles from corrosion by using a rubber sleeve over them at ground litter contact points. The roof cladding is usually either Durashade or Canavcon shaded material. Roll up blinds are optional on one or both sides of the building. The Redpath goat-shelters are made up of an all bolted RHS box section tube design, making them straight-forward to assemble by the owner or Redpaths contractor and also make them very strong in high wind sites.
Goat houses are most popular using the 9.6m arch span in either single or multiple connected spans, although Redpath offer a 8m and 10.65m series also. Ventilation of the shelter is either by natural side or roof vent systems + air forced fan ventilation is an option also
