Polytunnels for Sheep Housing

Polytunnels for Sheep Housing

Our range of sheep polytunnels use a robust 50.8mm diameter tubing for the complete framework. The steel is high tensile "Z35" grade which is galvanised and has a 1.5mm wall thickness. The polyttunnel steel framework includes 5 bracing struts to each end hoop to provide rigidity where it's most required to withstand high winds.

The polytunnel hoops are spaced at 6ft apart for a fast build whilst maintaining superior strength. The foundation tubes are concreted into the ground which gives maximum stability.

All the timbers for the end frames, base rails and mid-rails are Tanalith treated for a longer lifespan. We use 4" x 2" CLS (89mm x 38mm finished size) for all the timberwork. For the end posts, we double-up on the timbers to give plenty of support for hinging a 10ft wide field gate (not supplied). The polythene is secured with a double row of treated battens.

Along each side of the polytunnel sheep house there is a 39in wide ventilation panel to allow air circulation with minimal draughts. The ventilation panel is comprised of ventilation netting fixed to the timber base rail and timber mid-rail. Inside this, supported on the polytunnel hoops is 5-wire stock fencing to protect the ventilation netting from "lively" sheep.

As with all our polytunnels we've made sure there are no weak links and each component is designed to ultimately fulfil it's purpose.

We supply our sheep shelters with Indasol diffused polythene. This is 200 microns thick for durability. The heavy diffusion reduces instant temperature gains in bright sunlight. This polythene also has an anti-condensate layer to stop condensation forming as droplets on the inner surface.

Anti hot spot tape is included to ensure the polythene doesn't degrade prematurely.

See detailed specification at the bottom of this page.

What's In The Kit

What's In The Kit

o Foundation tubes, diameter 50.8mm x 1.5mm high tensile galvanized steel tube, with steel tie rod for concreting.

o Hoops, ridge tubes, diagonal struts from diameter 50.8mm x 1.5mm high tensile galvanized steel tube. 5 struts per end.

o Timber end frames, base rails and side rails from 4in x 2in CLS treated timber.

o Door vertical posts timbers "doubled-up" to make substantial section for hanging a field gate.

o Indasol diffused 800g polythene. Anti-fog, anti-condensate. 5 year UV warranty.

o Windbreak netting ventilation to provide airlow with minimal draughts.

o 5-wire steel stock fencing around the sides.

o Anti hot spot tape for improved life of polythene cover.

Aluminium Gutter Option

A really useful addition to you sheep house, the aluminium gutter will divert rainwater run-off from the polytunnel towards one end of the the polytunnel. There, it can be collected in a water trough or routed to a watercourse.

Ideal for keeping the internal floor area of the polytunnel dry for young lambs to thrive.
