Free range laying farm

Free range poultry shed with 16,000 laying hens.





For the ventilation system an equal pressure system has been installed. The benefits of this system are:

  1. Both the air entering the house and leaving the house are perfectly balanced.
  2. The ventilation can be altered in all conditions to provide the optimal environment for the birds.
  3. The system is not affected by the opening of the popholes as the pressure in the house is equal no air enters or leaves through them.
  4. Both the inlet and exhaust fans are frequency controlled and therefore energy savings can be fully optimised.
