Thanks to the outstanding durability of aluminium alloy, Cover Technology LIVESTOCK HOUSING COVERS are an excellent tool for meeting farmers’ various requirements. Farm livestock housing covers and shelters are removable covers that are quick to assemble and can be disassembled and reassembled if required. This final feature is an excellent aid in speeding-up the issue of the necessary building permits. The LIVESTOCK HOUSING COVER construction consists of an aluminium and steel framed cover with technical PVC fabric. The choice of materials allows shipping low weights and compact volumes, rapid assembly and impressive resistance to weather loads.
