Roof ventilation option
Optional roof ventilation system
Redpath Dairy housing may be fitted with either a single-side facing (SRV) or Double side facing (DRV) roof ventilation system. The Roof vents are all driven by durable "rack & pinions" and may be either manually or fully automatically controlled. Roof ventilation becomes a more important consideration if summertime dairy cow housing is going to be considered or if the Standoffshelters are larger in size (say more than 4000m2 + ).
With larger Redpath clear roofed dairy housing designs the sidewall ventilation will often be quite far from the center of the building , and this can promote warmer than desired temperatures in the central areas of the building. The roof vent system may be simply fitted to the middle spans of a multiple-span truss building or it may be fitted to all spans.
Redpath recommend fitting a Redpath electronic temperature control module and motor/gearbox to control the roof ventilation system. This module will monitor the internal environment and open and close the roof venting to suit the desired pre-set temperature. The control module will also close the roof vents in times of rainfall or if the wind reaches a strength that requires the roof vent to close.
Vents may also be operated via Redpaths manual chain drive gearbox if farms do not have a power supply to the shelter or they only require basic control.
Roof ventilation will provide the farmer with a sophisticated 'year round production' facility and helps to provide the ideal temperature and humidity for the cows 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
Other cooling optins for stock include the fitting of overhead shade screening within the shelter - which is an optional extra.
