SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEMS
Instead of small openings such as windows, stables have for many years now featured fully open perimeter walls. This solution enables fully opening or closing an entire side of the stable and allows full control of the air flow when combined with a ridge vent. Side ventilation elements are controlled either mechanically using a reel or by electricity. In the case of an electric drive, the entire ventilation system can be fitted with a weather station (including rain, wind and temperature sensors) which controls the system fully automatically without the need for any additional input or regulation. We supply 6 types of side ventilation systems:
SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM TYPE A
The type A side ventilation system was until recently the most popular stables ventilation system. Its functioning has been proven across over 20 years of use. The canvas is suspended at the top on steel cables, which are connected to the main cable that is then reeled via pulleys onto a motor-powered cylinder or mechanical reel. This system provides vertical movement. At the bottom, the canvas is firmly mounted onto a sill board. During movement, the canvas folds onto the sill at the bottom. An integral part of the system is a mesh which supports the canvas during poor weather conditions.
SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM TYPE B
The type B side ventilation system is currently the most commonly used side ventilation solution. The canvas is suspended at the top on steel cables, which are connected onto the main cable that is then reeled via pulleys onto a motor-powered cylinder. This system provides vertical movement. At the bottom, a shaft connected to a motor is attached to the canvas. When the canvas is in motion, the shaft winds the canvas up at the bottom. The canvas is thus protected from dirt and remains taut when fully or partially closed.
SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM TYPE C
The type C side ventilation system operates on the principle of opening from below. At the top, the canvas is fixed onto an aluminium strip, while the bottom is attached to a shaft. The shaft is driven by an electric motor. As the shaft turns, it changes the covering height of the opening.
SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM TYPE D
The type D side ventilation system is the most advanced side ventilation design. It differs greatly from the other systems. The canvas is wound onto a shaft to achieve the desired covering height, but the system can also move vertically. The system thus provides not only ventilation, but also shading. Another undeniable benefit is the absence of support meshes, which are instead replaced by robust profiles with rubber fittings to serve as a guide and support for the whole system.
SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM TYPE E
The type E side ventilation system operates on the principle of opening from below. At the top, the canvas is fixed onto an aluminium strip. At the centre, the canvas carries a cylindical fitting for mounting onto the reel-in shaft. Thanks to the position of the central reel-in shaft, the canvas reels in twice as fast. The bottom portion of the system is fitted with a shaft for canvas tensioning. The space between the canvas and the terrain is sealed off via a welded sleeve. Vertical movement of the system is delimited by supporting inner and outer profiles with a PVC profile that protects the canvas against wear.
SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM TYPE F (POLYCARBONATE WALLS)
Hollow polycarbonate is used in agricultural cattle breeding structures not only as a part of roof sheathing, but also as a material for sheathing the perimeter walls of stables and other buildings. Our company supplies polycarbonate boards in a variety of sizes and designs. Most commonly, we install polycarbonate walls into waiting halls and milking parlours, i.e. in places where improved thermal insulation is required. Stables buildings can be fitted with boards with a varying degree of transparency. Polycarbonate walls are controlled via a manual reel or an electric motor.
ACCESSORIES TO SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM
WELDED WIRE MESHES
Welded wire meshes are installed in front of the perimeter walls themselves and form a barrier in the stable between the animal and the canvas that is part of the side ventilation system. They prevent the cattle from reaching and damaging the canvas.
TIMBERING FOR SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM A - F
Timbering consists of planks or structural square timber and is used for mounting technological elements of side ventilation systems. The dimensional parameters of the timbering are dependent on the type of canvas used and the size of the opening. Planks and square timbers are planned and waterproofed. Planks can be substituted by steel components on customer request.
CANVAS ENDINGS FOR SIDE VENTILATION SYSTEM OF ALL TYPES
This element prevents wind from getting under the canvas and protects motors and the travel system from outside weather conditions.
