Check out the strength of our fabric!

​Date Published: July 22 2016    |    Category:  General News Simple Shelter

When it comes to fabric, we know what we're on about. We've been cladding our shelters with the same Tuffspan PE fabric for the last 20 years and it has never let us down. 

To prove our point, at Fieldays this year we suspended a 2300kg Ford Ranger on our Tuffspan fabric for the duration of the 3 day show. As well as drawing the crowds, the stunt certainly demonstrated the incredible strenth and durability of the 407gsm polyethelene.

Another National Fieldays has come and gone and as usual, been very successful. This year, the Simple Shelter site was just inside Gate One and visible all over Fieldays. We’ve continued to grow our site, showcasing both post mounted and container mounted options and this year adding a freestanding steel frame to demonstrate the strength of our structural steel. Once again the Dairyhouse structure housed the live milking display together with Lely, Cowhouse and Technipharm.

Faultless performance at the Alpine Drilling Project

Date Published: June 24 2015    |    Category: General News Industrial Simple Shelter

Simple Shelter played a critical role in the recent project to gather information about the Alpine Fault – New Zealand’s biggest earthquake threat. From October through to early 2015, scientists from all over the world gathered in Whataroa, near Franz Josef Glacier, in order to drill 1.3km into the fault and analyse the findings.

The Simple Shelter was required to protect the sensitive equipment from the wild weather in the valley – and according to project manager Ray Marx, it held out “amazingly well”.

Our biggest Fieldays ever!

Date Published: July 09 2014    |    Category: Farming General News Industrial Simple Shelter

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who visited our sites at National Fieldays this year. This year on the Simple Shelter site we showcased both our post-mounted and container-mounted shelter options in a key location near Gate 1. The response to these two structures was very interesting - a common theme was comments on the strength of the Simple Shelter design and how pleasant it was to be inside the structures.


Re-covering an existing structure

Date Published: April 22 2014    |    Category: General News Industrial Simple Shelter

Over the years, Simple Shelter has been asked to replace roof covers on a number of existing shelter structures made by other suppliers, where the original manufacturer has been unable to supply replacements themselves. We recently re-covered one of these structures in Morrinsville, and in spite of the fact that very little detail was available regarding cover sizing and design, the replacement cover fitted perfectly.

Tsunami recovery work with Simple Shelter

Date Published: February 21 2014    |    Category: General News Industrial Simple Shelter

Following the severe tsunami which hit Samoa in 2009, Simple Shelter was contacted by a Samoan government agency.

An existing shelter structure covering a slipway had suffered damage during the tsunami when a barge broke free of its moorings and collided with one end of the structure. The resulting damage released the roof cover and badly damaged it.

Offshore installations: Featuring Fiji

Date Published: November 15 2013    |    Category:

Simple Shelter’s installers travelled to Fiji earlier this year to take care of erecting a clear span workshop facility in Suva. With two Simple Shelter structures each 16m wide x 18.3m long, the workshop offers almost 600 square metres of clear span space, and the unique arched design of the structures ensures good ventilation and even working temperatures year-round. The Simple Shelter’s translucent TuffSpan fabric cladding allows plenty of light transmission, keeping lighting costs down.


Simple Shelter at petrochemical plant: Tough structures for tough sites

When Methanex needed temporary structures during their scheduled shut-down period, they gave Simple Shelter a call. The brief was straightforward: two structures were required for a sensitive welding process which needed to take place under cover during the shut-down. Simple Shelter supplied and installed two fully enclosed Simple Shelters with electrically operated winch-up doors - the two blue Simple Shelters are visible in the middle of the aerial photos below.
