The Gothic arched frames are constructed from a triple layer of sustainable, structural exterior grade plywood which is highly durable. They are then screwed and glued together with a high quality, fully waterproof glue. The frames are then treated with two coats of waterproof timber preserver.

Woodscott shelters are built on tanalised timber skids, you can upgrade these skids to ACCOYA eco timber, these come with a 25 year no rot guarantee. The skids sit straight on the ground, which can be uneven, no footings are required, therefore no ground preparation is necessary, and why your shelter would not need planning permission. They are held firmly in place by being bolted to 10x ground stakes.

4x diagonal braces are required, one in each corner, these are also held in place with ground stakes and bolts. This makes the structure very solid, will withstand winds over 80 mph and can be positioned in very exposed locations.

The cladding and plywood boards are all securely screwed in place with the addition of washers on the ends, this strengthens the area, as horses like to scratch themselves on the end of the cladding boards, this prevents the boards from splitting.

To comply with planning laws, our shelters are truly mobile and can be moved with ease. To move your shelter around the field, you simply remove the fixings from the stakes, then brace the skids with lengths of timber, tie a tow line through the holes in the ends of the skids and pull.

All components on our shelters are screwed and bolted together, this allows you to easily remove individual components that may need replacing/maintaining in the future, or completely dismantle and rebuild in a new location were moving by hand or vehicle is not feasible.
