Field Shelters

Here at Finer Stables we manufacture and install a wide variety of high-quality mobile field shelters and mobile stables. In most cases mobile buildings do not require planning permission as they are movable and not a permanent structure.

They are easily towed and allow you the flexibility to move the location to suit your requirements throughout the year. Sizes start at 12’x12’ up to 36’x12’ with two timbers and two skid options to choose from you will be spoilt for choice.

Field Shelter Specification 

Our mobile buildings are only made using the highest quality timber and materials, constructed from 75mm x 50mm timbers for the framing for maximum strength. The shiplap cladding is 16mm x 125mm and the weatherboard cladding 15mm x 125mm.

The roof joists are planed all round 125mm x 50mm set at 500mm centres for extra strength. All external and internal timber used for our buildings is pressure treated. Pressure treatment uses a high-pressure tank to force the preservative chemicals deep into the timber, therefore providing a longer lasting treatment against decay, as well as being environmentally friendly and nontoxic to animals.

The roof is finished in black Onduline an extremely tough, lightweight, corrugated roofing material manufactured from bitumen saturated organic fibres. It has a 15-year insurance backed water proofing guarantee, withstands wind speeds up to 120mph, it does not rust, rot or become brittle and has high insulation and sound absorbency values. We also offer coloured onduline and a range of galvanised roofing systems.

Our timber skids are constructed from 125mm x 75mm pressure treated timber, the galvanised skids are constructed from 100mm x 50mm box section galvanised steel. Both options come complete with towing eyes.

Kick-boards are supplied as standard to 1.2m high in 11mm OSB, with the option to upgrade to full height or PLY.

Field Shelter Optional Extras

We have several optional extras available to personalise your building, such as gates, clear roof lights and guttering. Please refer to our optional extras listed with the building you are interested in purchasing.

Mobile field shelters and mobile stables are manufactured to order therefore opening sizes are flexible, tack rooms can be added to create a bespoke building to suit everyone’s requirements.

Anchoring your mobile field shelter down is highly important. Our Ground anchors are easy to install and remove should you wish to move the building. They are fitted by first bolting or screwing the bracket to the building and mobile skids, then the anchor is hammered through the slot in the bracket. The slot prevents the anchor rotating out. In some areas, planning permission is needed for permanent fixed structures, for example, stables and shelters, however, using our anchors, the shelter can be safe and still be temporary and therefore outside the planning requirements.
