Eurosix Vent Ridge system benefits livestock building

Briarwood Products of Highbridge, Somerset have supplied over 600m2 of EUROSIX fibre cement roof sheeting in Natural Grey to cover a new Dairy Farm building in Bedfordshire. After months of detailed planning for this new project a specification was issued for EUROSIX reinforced fibre cement sheeting to include a ventilated ridge system with a Natural Grey colour finish.

In addition to the EUROSIX ventilated ridge system this livestock building has included one completely open side vertical detail and Yorkshire boarding on the opposite vertical detail, so a maximum flow of air can be obtained from eaves to ridge. This natural form of ventilation system, if planned correctly, is known to produce the most effective air flow which allows any warm stale air to escape from the highest point of the building, whilst replacing it with a flow of fresh and clean air.
