THERMAL INSULATION OF PIGGERIES AND POULTRY HOUSES

What happens when a poultry house and piggery is not insulated?

Probably most of us would assume higher energy costs.Obviously this is right ,although this is not the only one correct answer.Not only does insulation affect heating costs, but also other issues like feeding costs,mortality losses and  meat quality.

*Environmental quality and mortality losses:In summer when it is too hot ,the temperture inside the building rise up very fast and birds and piglets may die of choking.While in winter, in a poorly ventilated farm,trying to maintain the temperture in order not to loose too much energy,side walls must be closed and the humidity in the house will increase and as a consequence a lot of ammonia will be given off.This will cause breathing problems and therefore the quality of the chicken or pig will decrease .

*Food intake, production and yield:The challenge is keeping birds and piglets from over- heating nor from getting too cold. When animals overheat, they stop eating and therefore production and yields decreases as they need more time to achieve the desired weight. When it is too cold , animals try to maintain the body temperture by eating more feed although the conversion is worse.All in all animals are less efficient in feeding terms.

WITH THE RIGHT INSULATION SYSTEM  ,WE COULD REDUCE PRODUCTION COST RAISE YIELD AND QUALITY AND REDUCE CO 2 EMISSIONS.

What if you need insulation,but your roof is corroded and rusted, during the rainy season the water is streaming through the roof your animals are wet the feed gets wet and production cost keep on rising?You use Polyurethane spray foam to waterproof and insulate your roof .You spray your roof on the outside with polyurethane spray foam paint the foamed roof with an elastomeric uv resistant  coating and you have an insulated and waterproofed roof.

THERMAL INSULATION OF BUILDINGS

RIGIFOAM RIGIFOAM spray foam is a closed-cell ,rigid polyurethane foam . It is produced by an exothermic reaction between a polyol component and isocyanate.At the end of the reaction phase , the foam begins to solidify and cure. Applied with a spray gun in several layers ,RIGIFOAM provides seamless thermal protection.The field of application covers virtually all areas of flat and pitched roofs ,ceilings,walls and floors.

The advantages of insulation with RIGIFOAM spray foam:

  • Insulation without joints or gaps.
  • Maximum insulating performance at minimum thickness.
  • Insulation of components in hard to treat areas.
  • Excellent adhesion to the substrate.
  • Prolongs the life of buildings.
  • Rapid installation times.
  • Increases comfort in the home or workplace.
  • Low material weight .
  • Safe professional installation.
