Half Round Buildings

Originally designed for hay and farm storage, half round buildings are now seen in many forms, and their adaptability means they are ideal for calf-rearing, workshops, machinery storage and many other uses.

The standard half round building is 8.7m wide. Our size range also includes a smaller option of the 5m arch and the massive 12m arch. Length increases in bays of 3m or 3.6m.

The individual options for your half round building can include blank ends, sliding or roller doors, clearlight panels for natural lighting, person doors, lean-tos, and spouting.
