Roof and post mounted structures are ideal for housing sheep, cattle, poultry and horses. In summer they are cool in temperature, similar to being under the shade of a tree. The light is very even without shadows, making it a much more comfortable environment for the animals, resulting in less stress and a potential increased in production.
The option of vented; eves, ridges and ends gives the potential option of manual or automatic climate control. In the horse industry the fabric structures are suitable for dressage arenas and lunging rings, as the gentle even light and lack of shadows calms the horses.
In the USA dairies use both traditional structures and fabric buildings for wintering herds. They report a measurable increased milk production from the fabric structures due to this calming effect.
Roof fabric structures mounted on concrete walls or solid sides, or the fabric to the ground options are practical for grain, feed and fertilizer storage, keeping the product protected from the elements, enabling bulk handling technologies.
The sheep, cattle and dairy industries utilise the fabric structures to cover yards and extend handling sheds, reducing stress on animals and operators.
The fabric structures lend themselves to be used as multi-purpose shedding. In the grain season they may take excess grain, sheep holding for woolly or shorn sheep in the spring, a machinery shed for the rest of the year, and the ideal venue for having all the neighbours around for a party.
Rural infrastructure – warehousing and workshops
Container mounted fabric structures are ideal solutions for equipment workshops and general storage facilities. The containers or modular flat packs can be used as rooms for secure storage, offices, accommodation, training, ablutions, first aid, bunded oil storage, and workshops.
In rural situations, distance can be a factor, and the compact nature of the fabric structures make them easily transportable. Typically the fabric structures come in a cradle 3-4 pallets long weighing one to three tons depending on size.
The flexibility of the fabric structures which can easily enlarged or reduced in size, with a large building divided into two or three separate buildings gives the farmer a lot of flexibility in managing their rural infrastructure.
