Farm Sheds

Farm sheds are an essential feature of farm life.

They protect your horses, your valuable stock feed, and machinery. And you need a solid shed to keep your agricultural chemicals and sprays out of the wrong hands too. And then how could your equipment keep on functioning without your spacious workshop?

We have solid steel farm sheds to meet all your requirements whatever your needs including:

Farm Shed - 14M x 28M x 5M

Solid Steel Farm Shed – 14M x 28M x 5M

The extraordinary spanning capacity of the steel frames means we can build open portal sheds up to 25m wide and skillion sheds up to 12m wide.We can also build barns, open gable sheds, stud frame buildings, and add on awnings and lean-tos.

You tell us what you need; multiple sized bays, internal walls, or fully enclosed lockup bays. Roller doors or sliding doors, personal access doors, and windows are all options we can easily design into your new farm shed too.

There are lots of other options as well ranging from insulation to mezzanine floors and whirlybird ventilators.

All our shed designs come with full engineering specifications and meet all building code, ShedSafe, and council requirements. And you can even see how your planned shed will look thanks to our 3D design software.

It’s a great way to try out different colour schemes and see how changes such as moving a wall or altering the size of a bay will impact on your overall design.

A range of rain guard products allow you to optimise your shed for rainwater harvesting and we all know how critical that can be.

And with a choice of Unicote or Zincalume cladding you have plenty of options for colour choice. And don’t forget, our sheds are complete kitsets so you can either build the shed yourself or let us do it for you.

Rural Sheds

Rural life is always changing and there’s just so much to do.

That’s why rural sheds need to be versatile. And they need to be tough. We don’t build toy sheds. We build real rural sheds that’ll cope with everything you demand of them.

Are you looking for the perfect shelter for your horses, an open riding arena or perhaps a lockable office? Maybe you need a general purpose storage shed for your boat, trucks, trailers and other assorted vehicles.

Or are you looking for a shed suitable for a large-scale workshop?

We can rural build barns, open gable sheds, stud frame buildings, and add on awnings and lean-tos

We can rural build barns, open gable sheds, stud frame buildings

We can build open front sheds or open gable sheds up to 25m wide thanks to the incredible unsupported spanning strength of Protective steel. We can build barn style sheds, add in awnings or lean-tos and just about anything else you could want in a rural shed.

And yes, we can do multiple bays with differing sizes and throw in a couple of fully-enclosed lockable bays with roller doors. Perhaps you need to add in an office space too with personal access doors, windows, even a sliding glass door and an awning.

And we’ll make sure it’s really cozy with insulation options.

Our range of sheds includes:

  • Portal sheds up to 25 metres wide
  • Skillion sheds up to 12 metres wide
  • Barns and open gable
  • Gable and skillion carports
  • Attached awnings
  • Patios and stud frame buildings

Maybe you’re not sure whether to go for a mono-pitch roof, a traditional roof or a barn style shed? Perhaps you’d be able to decide about the roof pitch if you could only see it before you bought it?

And you still can’t decide where those internal walls should go? And don’t get started on the colour range either. Our years of experience and our innovative 3D design software means we can implement all your design ideas immediately and you can see the result on the spot.

You can even take a walk through a 3D visualisation of your new shed and get a real feel for how your shed will look and perform.

The ShedTech 3D software ensures that your new rural shed will be incredibly strong and will meet all engineering and council requirements as well as Australian building codes.

You can choose the kitset option for our sheds.

The heavy duty best-in-the-industry bracket options include embedded type or bolt to existing slab hinge up styles so you know your shed is going to stay where you put it when the weather gets a little wild.

And with Unicote or Zincalume cladding panels you have a wide range of colour options too. Our sheds are also designed to be easy to install.

We’ve made it as easy as possible with full installation instructions, engineering specifications and features such as hinging brackets that allow you to pivot frames up into place.

You need to be aware that some of the bigger sheds will require specialist lifting equipment. Of course, you can also let us do it for you while you sit back, relax and make the most of rural life.

Machinery Sheds

Tractors, harvesters, hay balers, trucks, trailers, slashers, sprayers

They’re the tools of your trade and they’re worth a lot of money. Machinery sheds protect your valuable machinery assets from the weather as well as the increasing threat of theft.

We offer a wide range of steel sheds to cater for all your machinery shed requirements.

Thanks to the superior spanning capabilities of Australian Protective steel and our state-of-the-art design software we can design your dream machinery shed.

Open front, open gable or closed (or a mix), various bay sizes with options for mixed bay sizes and stud heights, and roller doors or sliding doors; you want it we can design and create it for you.

Plus you have a huge range of additional customisation options too such as personal access doors, windows, awnings, and colour choices, and with our ShedTech software you can instantly see how the finished design will look.

Open Front / Open Gable

The choice of open front or open gable sheds gives you so many more options for optimizing your valuable shed space.

So, which one is best suited to your needs?

Open gable sheds allow you to take advantage of the additional height at the highest point of the roof to manoeuvre large equipment in and out of the shed with ease.

You can get your oversized machinery into a smaller shed without having to invest in a much larger open front shed.

Open front sheds allow you to have multiple bays running the length of your shed.

The old restrictions on bay sizes are no longer so critical thanks to the extraordinary spanning strength of our steel framed sheds.

Open front sheds allow you to have multiple bays running the length of your shed

Open front sheds allow you to have multiple bays running the length of your shed

You can have varying bay sizes up to 6 m wide or more so you have the right space for all your equipment. You can also choose a mono-pitch or standard style roof for your open front shed.

Our wide span steel frames mean you can have a completely open shed or you can add internal walls to separate bays or even enclose some of them completely.

The choices are endless and they’re all yours.

But thanks to our advanced 3D design software you can see instantly how those decisions will look and feel.

The ShedTech design software also takes away those engineering challenges so you know your shed will be built to last. A choice of Unicote or Zincalume cladding means you have a world of colour options too.

Workshop Sheds

Workshop sheds sit at the heart of many farming businesses and industries.

You need a great workshop shed to protect your valuable equipment, machinery, and tools. Your gear needs protection from the tough Australian climate.

But with an increasing onus on workplace safety and rural theft on the increase your equipment also needs to be kept securely out of the wrong hands.

That’s why we build workshop sheds that are designed to work 24/7 protecting your tools even when you’re not on the job.

From large-scale industrial workshops big enough to store a spare plane or two down to a single bay lock up shed where you can use your welding kit, tools and a generator, we have the perfect workshop shed for your requirements.

Strong I-Beam columns and welded-web truss construction ensure your shed can take anything you can throw at it or in it. The structural advantages of steel allow us to build large span open plan sheds up to 25m wide and 9m high.

You can design the interior space to suit your requirements; add in internal walls or create separate lockable office spaces.

There are so many optional add-ons that will make your shed really work for you.

Hay Sheds

Protecting your hay from moisture is vital for your animal health and your farm finances.

A well-designed hay shed can make all the difference to the quality of your feed especially at the end of a long hard season.

Investing in a superior quality hay shed can pay for itself in little more than a single season. That’s because the extra nutritional quality of well-stored hay means you’ll get better returns and healthier animals.

Hay sheds also need to be tough to combat the increased moisture that often accumulates in hay sheds.

You’ll also be looking for a shed that toughs out the heaviest downpours and gale force winds and still keeps your hay in good condition. That’s why we use super durable Protective steel products that are made in Australia for Australian conditions.

We can build open front sheds with wide open spans or open gable sheds for easy loading and access to your feed.

We can work with you to come up with the most effective design taking into account the size and type of your bales. This is an important factor in making the most of your shed space. We can also do barn style hay sheds or even simple roof-only type hay storage options.

You’ll probably also want to think about maximising ventilation because increased humidity and moisture content in poorly designed hay sheds can contribute to the rapid deterioration of the hay quality, increased corrosion rates in the shed’s structural elements, and even increase the risk of hay bales igniting.

Check out our range of whirlybirds and ventilators for extra ventilation.

Of course, we can also design a mix and match hay shed with a fully enclosed bay for storing some tools or other equipment.

The choices are all yours and our highly acclaimed ShedTech 3D design software enables you to visualise your new shed instantly.

This software also ensures your new hay shed meets the required wind loadings and all the building code and council engineering requirements as well.

And you can be sure that our prices mean your new hay shed won’t be the straw that breaks the bank or the camel’s back.

Shearing Sheds

The shearing shed is still one of the most important sheds on any sheep farm.

A well-designed shearing shed can improve revenue by improving the efficiency and reducing the costs of shearing operations.

With careful planning your new shearing shed can also improve operating conditions for your workers making the job easier and safer. We can do completely customised shearing sheds including:

  • Portal sheds up to 25 metres wide
  • Skillion sheds up to 12 metres wide
  • Barns and open gable

Our industry-leading 3D design software means we can work with you to design the perfect shearing shed for your requirements. You can try out various arrangements for optimising work flow.

Move the windows, doors and access points around. See how different bay sizes might help or how design changes can maximise natural ventilation through the shed.

This amazing 3D design tool even lets you do a walk-through of your design to get a real feel for how your new shed will work. And this tool is ShedSafe approved.

ShedSafe is the industry benchmark established by the Australian Steel Institute for Australian-made sheds. This means that all the gnarly engineering details will be sorted and your new shed will meet all building code and council requirements.

With complete customisation freedom you can add multiple other functional spaces to your sheds. Add inner walls and mezzanine floors to create office space or a smoko room for your hard working shearing gang.

Insulation and whirlybird ventilators are other options to help take the heat off your animals and employees. Think about vermin flashings too to help maintain a really clean and tidy space.

We use Protective steel for the framing and cladding. That’s because we believe there is nothing stronger or better on the market and it’s Australian-made.

Choose from Zincalume or Unicote panels for a truly tough shearing shed that’ll look smart too, thanks to more than 22 colours to choose from.

And of course, you can depend on the Protective Steel 15-year warranty.

Dairy Sheds

The dairy shed is a pivotal part of your farming business.

And a well-designed dairy shed is critical for herd welfare, efficient processing, and milk quality.

We can design a fully customised dairy shed to match your requirements exactly including:

  • Portal sheds up to 25 metres wide
  • Skillion sheds up to 12 metres wide
  • Open sided
  • Partially or fully enclosed

You have full control over where windows and roller doors go and the size of bays or the addition of any internal walls. You can add garaports, awnings, and other add-ons such as whirlybirds and insulation.

Our 3D design software is approved by ShedSafe. This means all engineering and building code requirements are taken care of. And with super tough Protective steel framing and cladding your shed won’t be kicking the bucket anytime soon.

All our sheds are available as complete kits that you can erect yourself (some larger sheds will require specialised lifting equipment) or we can do all the hard yards for you.

Barns

Heritage and Australian style barns are really popular and for good reason.

Barn sheds combine a brilliant and pragmatic all-purpose design with solid durability. Barns are a great way to build multiple functions into your shed design.
