Briarwood Products of Highbridge, Somerset have supplied over 650m2 of EUROSIX fibre cement roof sheeting which covers a new livestock building on a small family farm in Gloucestershire. 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 the building open on 2 sides and EUROSIX roof sheeting to overhang further than the traditional eaves line which adds protection above the cattle feed. Yorkshire boarding fixed at the gable end to offer continuous ventilation.
In addition to the EUROSIX ventilated ridge system this livestock building has included the open side 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 a 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.
