Redpath Ecoshelters Overview

Ecoshelters have been very popular with the pork production industry for over 15 Years.  More than 1000 of these units have been manufactured and built by Redpath. The Ecoshelter will usually be supplied with Durashade or Canvacon shaded roofing cover, and roll up blinds are optional on one or both sides of the building.  Ecoshelters are an all bolted RHS box section tube design, making them straight-forward to assemble by the owner or Redpaths contractor and also very strong in high wind sites.

Ecoshelters are most popular using the 9.2m arch span in either single or multiple connected spans, although Redpath offer a 7.5m and 10.65m series also. Ventilation of the Ecoshelter is either by natural side or roof vent systems + air forced fan ventilation is an option also.
