Product Description

Planning Permission

Because our mobile field shelters feature skids attached to the base, and require no ground works to be built and used, they are deemed temporary structures and technically except from planning consent. This saves you a lot of time, hassle and expense dealing with contractors and local planning offices. If you would like more information on planning permission get in contact with us and we will be happy to provide advice.

Key Features

pressure-treated-timber-1To ensure the longevity of our mobile field shelters, the timber framework they are made from is treated with a specialist wood preservative. Rather than a brush on treatment, we put the timber through a purpose built vessel where it is first soaked in a water-based protective agent (TANALITH E) and then vacuum dried. This process allows the preservative to seep deep into the timber’s cells and protects it against damp, fungal decay and insect attacks for years to come, requiring minimal ongoing maintenance or treatment.
The exterior cladding used on our mobile field shelters is Shiplap. Shiplap is a rabbeted pine, where each board partially overlaps that of the board next to it. This creates a channel of aesthetically pleasing shadow line effects, provides excellent protection against all weather conditions and allows for flexible dimensional movement caused when towing.
metal-skidsAs standard, our mobile stables are supplied with 80mm x 40mm metal skids/sledges fitted to the base of the structure. These skids are what facilitate the easy movement of the stable across your field. To move the stable, you simply tie it to a 4×4 vehicle or tractor using the anchor points and tow chain provided, and drag it.
black-onduline-roofAs standard all shelters include black Onduline roof sheeting. Onduline is an extremely robust yet lightweight material that is used as roofing worldwide for many agricultural and industrial applications. This roof sheeting will protect the inside of your shelter against all manner of weather, from torrential rain and gale force winds, and it’s lightweight quality doesn’t add unnecessary additional weight to your structure, allowing it to be easily moved. If you wish, you can change the colour of your Onduline roof sheet to something that blends in nicely with your surroundings – see the upgrades section below for more details.
The standard size of the openings on our mobile field shelters is 2.4m. This is plenty of space for even the largest of animals. However, if you would like something larger or smaller, we can accommodate for that in a custom manner. Just give us a call on 01746 766110 and see what we can do for you.
front-gutteringAll shelters include robust 15mm thick OSB kick-boards that provide extra strength and stability to the inside of the structure. This high density, moisture resistant lining is perfect for protecting against damage caused by animals kicking out. Our shelters also include front guttering and a down pipe to help stop puddles forming and causing a muddy and unpleasant entrance way for you and your animals.
All field shelters include a 1.2m canopy/overhang as standard. This canopy helps provide extra cover for your animals and helps rain water drain away from the shelter entrance. If you would prefer, however, we can build your shelter without a canopy.

Upgrades & Extras

To make your mobile field shelter a dual purpose equestrian building, we can provide stable conversion kits that seamlessly bolt on. These large timber panels feature a stable door and window and can instantly turn your shelter into a portable stabling solution. Alternatively, if you have a larger dimension mobile field shelter, we can provide kits that create internal partitions (dividers/gates) for adjoining stable units, separate tack rooms or hay storage areas within the same structure.
metal-gatesFor an additional cost, we can include a metal or timber gate with your building. Adding a gate can be a great way to provide an extra bit of security and keep your animals out of the way when needed, without having to get them back to their stable. Both gates available are robust and look great fitted to the structure. Alternatively, we can also provide timber slip rails with galvanised brackets. For costs, speak to one of our representatives today.
If you prefer, you can upgrade the standard 80mm x 40mm metal skids to more robust 100mm x 100mm metal ones for an additional charge.
coloured-onduline-roofing-1Upgrade the standard black Onduline roof sheet to a red, green or brown one that can help your building blend in with it’s surrounds. For upgrade pricing and any other questions you may have about roofing, talk to one of our representatives today.
