Livestock Shelter Benefits

Animals thrive in a greenhouse type environment benefiting from

  • being dry
  • being out of the wind
  • being in the light without being in the direct sun.
  • The cushion of air created by the inflator fan will reduce the condensation
  • Roll up sides are added for easy natural ventilation.

Usually customers attach a snow fence or netting to the inside of the arch if the structure is mounted to the ground, so the animals do not come in contact with the cover or run away when the sides are rolled up.

A short wall is also an option to keep the animals away from the plastic while also increasing the sidewall height.

A white tarp covering may be used instead of the double white poly, especially in situations where the animals are going in and out on their own accord when they require shelter.

Center pivoting gable vent

We are pleased to introduce our center pivoting gable vent as a simple solution to the challenges of venting a building. For venting to be effective, it has to be as high as possible. This is a cost effective alternative to costly roof vents.

Part of the window swings in and part of it goes out. Because of this, rain is never an issue and the window is easy to control even in extreme winds. Incoming air is always deflected up to mix with the warmest air. The tubular steel construction makes it both lightweight and resist twisting over time.

A continuous rope goes from the top of the window to a pulley at the ridge, down to ground level and back up to another pulley and then to the bottom of the window. By tying the rope off to an eye bolt on a gable post, this allows for very simple control from ground level.
