Strong And Robust Field Shelters

Providing shelter in the winter and shade in the summer, a mobile field shelter is invaluable for horses, sheep and alpacas that spend any time outside in the elements. Our specifications go above and beyond to ensure you have a field shelter designed to last in all weathers.

Our field shelters are strong and sturdy but light enough to be easily moved by 4x4 or compact tractors.

Shelter in the field, yard or paddock

Field shelters don't require groundworks or potentially any planning permission. Built from the same sustainably sourced, pressure treated timber that we use in our range of timber buildings, Olson Mobile Field Shelters are solid and quick to install.

With an integrated, galvanised metal skid or pressure treated timber skid and towing chain, our mobile field shelters are easy to move and reposition.

As standard an Olson Field Shelter is constructed from treated 4x2 timber, we line to 1.2m high with OSB and use L shaped chew strips on all openings. On top of this, you can specify additional boarding including the roof etc.

Be it a muddy paddock, snow-covered hilltop or even as additional space back in a horse yard these are superbly adaptable shelters. Our timber buildings are built to last and endure the rigours of daily life. In fact, we are so confident that we guarantee the workmanship on all our timber buildings for 5 years.

Roofing Options

Our timber buildings are available with a range of roofing options. Below are the different types of roofing material that you can choose between. Most of our standard building specifications include Onduline or are finished ready for tiling by a roofing specialist.

Onduline
Onduline

A durable and easy to install roofing option, onduline is ideal for stables and garages.

Onduline

Available in several colours, these corrugated sheets are made from recycled fibres that are then saturated with bitumen under controlled pressure and heat conditions. The result is a uniform, hardwearing roof backed by a 15-year manufacturers guarantee. The colours are impregnated into the material so do not require maintenance. The only thing you need to do is keep the leaves off and clear the gutters. This is our standard roof for stables as it has the ability to deaden the sound of rain.

Onduvilla
Onduvilla

Made from recycled fibres, Onduvilla is a lightweight, quick to install but durable roofing material offering a natural tile look.

Onduvilla

The sister product to Onduline, Onduvilla is similar in being made from recycled fibres but is in an overlapping tile format (installed as sheets). The roof is coloured with variations to replicate the look of a clay tiled roof. With a 15-year manufacturer guarantee, this lightweight roofing material is laid over a boarded roof and can installed on any of our building ranges.

Adding a clear sheet to the roof of a timber building allows natural daylight to flood into the space and makes it brighter for both animals and humans. This option can only be combined with Onduline roofing. Many of our buildings include one or more clear roofing sheets (depending upon the size of the building) but you can specify additional clear sheets.
