Mobile field shelter, horse shelter
Manufactured to the same high specification as our timber stables, Vale Stables' mobile field shelters are manufactured to an extremely high standard – and designed and built to last.
We keep a large range of standard sizes in stock starting from 8x10 smallholder range up to 12x36. To make your building mobile we offer 3 options of skids. Pressure treated timber skids are the least expensive, suitable for less regular use, by far the most popular are our unique 80x40 galvanised steel skids, for regular towing and a low threshold for your horse to step over we supply these on over three quarters of our shelters. We offer 100x100 galvanised steel skids for those who wish to upgrade.
Our mobile field shelters range from
8' x 10' to 12' x 36', designed with either a single 6’ or double 6' wide openings that can be fitted with slip rails or galvanised steel gates. Every mobile field shelter is fitted with 11 mm OSB kick boards to a height of 4'. Upgrades are available to 12mm ply or 18mm OSB.
Roofing and guttering
All our standard mobile field shelters have a lined overhang to the front, the 10’ deep model has an 800mm overhang, 12’ models have 1100mm. Shiplap lining can be an option.
Onduline roofing can be ordered in black, green, red or brown and as mentioned above is always lined with OSB to prevent sagging and withstand strong winds. If looks are high in your agenda, Asphalt shingle is particularly popular, however if you want to go all the way Cedar shingles will be the envy of all who see them and with a life of over 30 years are very reasonable value. Galvanised box profile and P6 Fibre cement are available on request.
We always advise guttering to the front of your mobile field shelter where moisture will collect in the entrance, the back is more a matter of preference, leaf guards are available if required.
We are often asked to provide rubber matting for our buildings. Solid 17mm mats reduce or illuminate the need for bedding in the shelter and have a positive effect on the health of your horses feet. Rubber or plastic grass mats also have great advantages in the entrance of your shelter, helping to bind the ground and spread the weight of your equine.
Delivery and installation
We manufacture all our timber buildings on site in our Warwickshire factory, keeping a large stock of standard sized complete stables enables us to keep delivery times to a minimum, we can often produce bespoke panels within 4-7 days.
