Machinery sheds are wide-span constructions designed to house all manner of machinery, whether for dairy farming, cropping, rearing livestock or felling trees.
Machinery sheds are commonly designed and built to house the specific machinery that they will be covering. Depending on the level of protection your machinery requires, the shed may be a simple open bay design, or a closed bay featuring entry points with hinged, sliding or roller doors. Traditionally machinery sheds are metal constructions with concrete foundations – simple steel shells that keep the rain and sun off. But a new type of construction is becoming increasingly popular amongst NZ farmers.
SmartShelters machinery sheds see a supergal steel-frame covered in a super strength membrane structure fabric, granting your machinery the protection of a traditional structure, while generating airflow and allowing in natural light, making the shed a more comfortable place to be.
Lightweight materials and clever construction methods allow a SmartShelter machinery shed to be erected in a fraction of the time that it takes to build a traditional structure. They can also be made larger (spans go up to a massive 35m) and mounting on containers or poles gives you the opportunity to move the shed if you need to. But flexibility doesn’t come at the expense of durability – SmartShelters machinery sheds are built to last.
