Redpath 6m design Overview

The Redpath 6m truss Standoffshelter offers simplicity of construction with its one piece roll forms RHS truss.  The 6m may be constructed in 3m modules up to 120m + length.  This span is also "modular"  and may be inter-connected with the family of other Redpath designs to provide the width of building that best meets the farm or feedpad dimensions needs.

This design building still incorporate the super long-life Durashelter heavy duty roof cladding, and also the unique to Redpath rubberised pole coating for total corrosion protection from effluent. The same heavy duty 'walk-through" gutters are also included - as used on the wider span Redpath designs.

The Durashelter clear long life roof membrane used on the 6m designs offers a high level of light transmission and allows P.A.R light (photo-synthetic active radiation) transmission also.  This has a substantial effect on the drying of the flooring and on the floorings health and cleanliness from bacteria build-up. Excessive humidity and long periods of wet or soggy floors can then be avoided. This becomes particularly important during winter which also coincides with the shelters most intensive use.

Redpath series Dairy standoffshelters - are well proven and have been tested by the extremes of weather, from Alpine applications to coastal areas in high wind zones often without any man made or natural shelter protection.  The Redpath family of arch designs will provide years and years of trouble-free life!
