Whether you need reliable storage sheds for equipment, machinery sheds, or any type of farm building, our open gable end sheds are a terrific option. Open gable end sheds are also known as flow-through sheds. A flow through shed is generally a large farm shed that is clad on the two longs side with the two gable ends open. At True Blue Sheds, we custom design a range of rural sheds, fully tailored to your needs.
What are farm sheds made from?
Open gable sheds are constructed from a range of materials, including steel and Colorbond®. Steel is the most common material used in farm sheds because it’s durable, reliable and has a long lifespan. The average life expectancy of a steel structure is between 45 and 60 years.
The most common types of steel used for sheds are Colorbond® (a type of galvanised zinc alloy) and Zincalume® (another type of galvanised zinc alloy). Both products offer excellent corrosion resistance against both atmospheric conditions such as rain or sun exposure; however, they differ slightly when it comes to how resistant they are against fire damage: while Colorbond® has better heat resistance than Zincalume® at high temperatures (over 350 degrees Celsius), Zincalume® lasts longer than Colorbond® when exposed continuously to low temperatures (-20 degrees Celsius).
