Mobile Field Shelters and Stables



We have been building mobile field shelters since 2005 and our unique and distinctive design is the result of many years of continuous development and refinement of our product. They are all based on a heavy Galvanized steel skid frame which continues up to roof height at the corners and around the doorways in the form of folded steel sections which are intended to provide a smooth and safe finish and also protect the building from its life as a scratching post.

We have only one basic design and construction system which is highly adaptable to almost any size and purpose you would like, as standard all of our field shelters use plywood lining to half height for kickboards - finished with a smart wooden rubbing strip at its top edge, the spaces between the uprights in the walls structure are filled in, externally they are clad in waney edged Larch weather boarding giving our buildings their distinctive soft appearance.

Our roofs are a 20 degree apex design, based on plated trusses spaced 4' apart, these carry purlins at 18" spacings and our front overhangs or 'canopies' extend to 4' beyond the front wall giving as much protection from the weather as possible. We use black Onduline roofing sheets as standard on all of our buildings; Onduline is considerably quieter in heavy rain and condensates far less than a steel roof, and can also be expected to have a long life when installed to the manufacturers recommendations regarding support and fixings.

The steel skids are made to order and are available any size and with your choice of opening positions and sizes. Additional options available include partition walls, stable doors and shutters.

Our unique design of steel corner and door sections provides a smooth and safe edge to the buildings. If rain guttering is fitted then the Down Pipes can be hidden inside these corner sections as they are always vulnerable in designs where these are outside the building.

Safety is a primary consideration of the design and the steel skid finished is another example of this. The 'turn-up' at the end of the skid is kept back underneath the corner to avoid any unnecessary sharp edges.
There are two towing eyes fitted to each end of the skid, these need to be used as a pair with a bridle type towing chain to balance the towing force to each corner.

All of our buildings are constructed by us on site, they are not pre-fabricated kits available for self assembly. All of our prices include delivery and construction at your site.

Black Onduline roofing sheets are used on all of our buildings. Onduline has become the roofing material of choice for equestrian buildings as it gives a much quieter roof during heavy rain than a steel clad roof.

Our shelters are based on a heavy Galvanized steel 'skid' which gives them their mobility. All of our steel work is Hot-Dip Galvanized as this is a far more weather resistant coating than paint. The skid ensures that no wood is in contact with the ground and avoids any resulting damp problems.

Our shelters and stables are all lined to just over 4' with exterior grade hardwood 1/2" plywood. The uprights are spaced 16" apart - closer than the usual 24" which creates a really solid wall. The plywood is finished at the top with a chamfered wooden rubbing strip.
The spaces between the uprights are filled in to create a small shelf above the plywood lining.

'Waney' or natural edge Larch weather boarding is used to clad all of our buildings. This very traditional cladding gives the buildings a nice soft appearance and gives them their unique character.

Our shelters are not intended to be the cheapest available on the market but I am sure that they represent the best value for money currently available as the features of our design, robustness of our build quality and our careful choice of materials mean that our Field Shelters and Stables compare very favourably with considerably higher priced examples.

 

These are a unique product which are not intended for mass production, each is constructed individually and tailored to your requirements. Current demand means our waiting list is approximately 6 - 8 weeks.
