Looking for a reliable and sturdy horse shelter for your prized animals? Wide Span Sheds has an incredible range of steel stables, all of which have been designed to the very latest in Australian engineering standards, are ShedSafe accredited and made with world-class BlueScope Steel. 

Before you start shopping for your steel stable, it is important to do a little research first. Firstly, figure out where exactly you intend to build your new horse shelter. When it comes to stables, it is important to know the most common direction for wind – and make sure the back of your equine shed faces that way so that you don’t get an uplift gust of wind in your stable. 

If your site is located on a hill, then it is best to place your equine building at a higher level. As water flows down a hill, you want any flow to go away from the structure to reduce the chance of flooding and potential damage to your shed.

Want to make sure you and your horses are comfortable all year round? Then consider investing in roof ventilation and/or insulation. This will help you keep your horse shed warmer in winter and cooler in summer. And trust us, in the scorching summer heat, a shed without ventilation or insulation can get extremely hot. 

Also consider various optional extras that you might like to include in your new steel stable: 

  • Dividing Walls
  • Sliding doors
  • Personal Access (PA) doors
  • Stable shutters
  • Split stable doors
  • Extended header sheeting
  • Multiple sheeting options
  • Skylight roof sheets 

Wide Span Sheds will design your new steel stable according to your site specific design criteria. Taking into account site location, wind speed and Importance Levels.
