Perforated Sheet Metal provides Innovation for the Agricultural Industry

Livestock producers could improve animal health and slash electricity costs by installing an innovative see-through wall on buildings.

While many farmers have relied traditionally on spaced timber boarding to clad shed walls, it often provides insufficient ventilation, increasing the risk of respiratory diseases.

Now, ground-breaking perforated metal sheeting has been proved to eliminate those problems. A colour coating galvanised steel cladding with a 25 per cent perforated area, in the form of tiny holes which allow light and air through, but not wind and rain.

In news this week - Perforated metal sheeting has improved air flow, while protecting against the elements at Pantswilt Farm in the UK, for rearing calves. It has also been installed in farms across the UK countryside since 2001, producing excellent results.

The perforated screens are sustainable, provide longevity and much needed airflow to protect the livestock (farmers investment).

It improves light and ventilation and in an exposed position, it does protect against the wind and rain.

"The better the ventilation, the healthier the animals - I think the perforated sheeting is a big step forward." said the farmer

Getting the ventilation right in old - or new - livestock buildings is critical to animal health and productivity, but finding the right balance between fresh air and a chilling draught can be difficult.

Animal welfare being a controversial and current issue, perforated sheet metal provides a great solution for farmers and the agricultural industry.
