Livestock Shade Sails

Polytex Tarpaulins are well known within the cattle, dairy & livestock industries for supplying livestock shade systems & shelter structures to increase production & ease herd heat loads.

Polytex Waterproof Livestock Structures are custom designed, traditional shaped structures which allow maximum ventilation & constant airflow to provide a productive environment for your livestock.

Polytex Tarpaulins have worked alongside their sister company Architex Fabric Structures to develop a retractable shade system for livestock heat stress reduction which allows the option of winter time (deployment) retraction. This modular shade system is available as standard in 4m or 8m wide sections enabling the flexibility to cater to the many livestock variations.

Polytex have a series of standardized units of static shade systems that can be utilized in most livestock production applications. Often supplied as a modular system that has shade sails and post cap tension systems that can be adapted to your onsite post arrangements. Polytex can supply replacement shades for existing systems found in feedlots, livestock exchanges & livestock handling areas where shade is required.
