ZINCALUME® steel is a popular choice for many farmers, and why shouldn’t it be? It is a high quality galvanised steel that has the lifespan of up to four times that of other galvanised steel products. It is a product of iconic brand, New Zealand Steel and it simply looks amazing.
The team at Wide Span Sheds highly recommends that you search for a reputable steel building supplier. Seek out those that provide quality buildings designed and engineered specifically for the New Zealand market and your site upon which it will be built.
In 2014, there were a total of 4.9 million cows being milked in New Zealand (according to Go Dairy website). With over 20 billion litres of milk being produced in the country last year, it's no wonder there is such a high need to for quality steel wintering barns, better known as cow or dairy sheds.
Available in five standard sizes and featuring one roller door, the Kiwi Barn is a charming and practical building choice. This barn kit is manufactured locally from New Zealand Steel, and has sheeting options in both ZINCALUME® and COLORSTEEL®. The distinguishing feature of this design, is the streamlined roof line (compared to the traditional raised centre section on an American barn).
