Tents

Here at John Harvey Engineering Ltd we have invested a lot of time in the development of tents and getting the specification right, both for the pigs and the farmer.

The frame slots together and is easy to assemble. The frame is made with galvanised and painted tubular steel with painted joiners and brackets. The tent can be taken down and moved without undoing any bolts.

The tarpaulin covers are UV resistant, anti-bacterial and heavy duty. The tents come with steel frame plastic clad 8′ x 4′ hurdles which run the perimeter of the tent. These are easy to use, strong and can be power washed down. They can be used with or without a hurdle run for growers, fatteners or dry sows.
