Design features

  • Provides overhead cover from airborne predators
  • Protection from the elements
  • Provides cover from rain, wind and hail.
  • Offers shade in the hot summer months
  • Ideal for placing food containers underneath, so that the chicken feed is kept dry.

The shelters are robust, yet can be quite easily moved using the carrying handles.

Stakes are provided to anchor the house to the ground, which should prevent it blowing away in a high wind.

Recycled Plastic

This field shelter is manufactured from flat sheets (2.4 x 1.2 m) of recycled plastic, typically 6, 9 or 12 mm thick, sourced from a plastic recycler.

Standard sheets are black in colour. A thin coating can be applied during manufacture to provide a coloured surface on one side. Additives are used to make the plastic ‘UV stable’, to minimise colour fade when exposed to sunlight. Sheets are smooth on one side and have a lightly textured ‘hatch’ pattern on the other.

The recycled plastic is made entirely from used food-grade plastic, primarily post-industrial waste. All plastic waste from the manufacturing process is returned for recycling to make more plastic sheet – this makes manufacture almost a zero waste process.

Some of the off-cut plastic is recycled to make the small 'Pi Clips' supplied to hold the houses together. The metal fasteners are made from stainless steel or other rustproof alloys, to provide a long outdoor life. Being metal, they can all be recycled.

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
