Etex understands the large investment that farmers make in farm machinery to ensure the most efficient farming processes. With this in mind having a dry, secure building to store farm machinery is essential to keeping it in the best possible condition.

Why not steel?

Compared with steel or sandwich panels, profiled sheets offer many advantages that promote the welfare of your animals.

Reduce the stress in animals by choosing a sound-absorbing product. In case of heavy rainfall, the sound under our profiled sheets sounds up to 2x softer than with a metal roof construction, with or without insulation.

Eternit fibre cement profiled sheets are classified A2 to BS EN 13501-1:2002.

Fibre cement does not rot, does not rust and is insensitive to fungi, bacteria, vermin and chemical influences. An ideal environment for your animals.
Fibre cement is a natural breathable material that minimises condensation and does not give rust formation a chance. Stress in animals due to falling drops of condensate is kept to the absolute minimum.
