We don’t need to tell you that mobile field shelters are used for sheltering horses, but did you know that mobile field shelters have lots of other potential uses too?
Mobile field shelters are not just for horses
During our 40 years of industry experience we have tailored field shelters for all kinds of purposes. Here are a few of our most popular…
- Hay storageThis is a popular choice due to the importance of keeping hay dry. Storing hay correctly can help ensure the hay retains the most nutrition content possible. It also keeps the hay more palatable for horses feeding on it. Protecting hay from ground moisture and water run off by storing in a field shelter will also prove very efficient in keeping hay dry – much better than leaving it in a field covered with tarp.
- Tractors, farm machinery and other general storageAs well as the benefit of a dry, protected space to store them, mobile field shelters can also offer valuable machinery some much needed added security.
- Housing LivestockWhether it be sheep, llamas or a dog kennel, we can help. In recent years we’ve seen the demand for alpacas rise too. As the alpaca is still quite rare in the UK, coupled with their slow breeding rate, this makes them quite a valuable animal with alpaca wool becoming highly sought after. Stocking rates for alpaca are similar to sheep which is 4 to 6 animals per acre in good quality pasture. This makes alpacas a great farming option for those with small acreage.
Here at National Timber Buildings we can build a shelter bespoke to your needs. Whether you want to add guttering, gates, doors or roof lights, our in-house CAD designers will build your requirements into your 18-, 24- or 36-foot shelter design. One of our clients based in Canterbury even requested that we add a bar into their shelter so they can use it for wine tasting events and weddings!
Mobile field shelters can be erected super quickly and are easy to tow and move around. Plus, the best feature of a mobile field shelter is that in most cases you don’t need planning permission to build one!
