Sterling Range: The Classic Farm Shed.

The 'Sterling' is designed to be a flexible general purpose farm building suitable for livestock, workshops, machinery and storage.

Available in 30', 35', 40', 45' and 50' spans, the base building is 60' long in four 15' bays and includes a fibre cement roof with rooflights, 7"X3" treated timber purlins and 6" 'Hunter' brand StormFlow gutters and downpipes plus all the bolts and tek screw roof fixings you need.

The sturdy steel frames have properly haunched and gussetted connections and include roof and side bracing.   Purlin cleats are fabricated from 8mm angle to provide proper seating for the timber and set at maximum 4'6" spacings.   Baseplates are minimum 10mm thick (12mm above 40' spans) and punched to accept foundation bolts (included in the kit).   The steelwork can be supplied either painted with a high build rust resistant primer or Galvanised.

In all cases the posts are designed to be bolted on a foundation base 18" (450mm) below floor level and have an overall length approximately 13'6" (4725mm).

There is a wide selection of side cladding options available in either plastisol coated steel or yorkshire boarding on a "Pick & Mix" basis, additionally if you prefer to supply your own vertical cladding you can order the necessary gable and door posts seperately.

Please note that the base building does not include side cladding to the gable peaks because we have found that many of our customers intend to fit side cladding later and matching the existing peaks is inconvenient.   Almost invariably the cladding is thrown away and replaced which is a waste of time and money. If you intend to clad the building later we would suggest that you purchase additional gable posts with the kit.

If you need a building longer than 60' then extra bay kits are available which include an extra portal frame, purlins, roof cladding,rainwater goods and fixings.
