Exclusive Design

The Raised Curved Ridge has been exclusively designed by Briarwood Products and helps to provide beneficial ventilation within a livestock building. The design facilitates the Venturi airflow effect, as the fresh flow of cool air enters the building directly where warm, moist, stale air can accumulate and provide a breeding ground for harmful bacteria if left unvented.
The Raised Curved Ridge is a good alternative to using an open protected ridge system, as it allows a major airflow, whilst protecting against risk of direct rainfall entering the ridge detail or livestock building itself. The curved ridge acts as an ‘umbrella’ shielding the building from direct rain whilst efficiently allowing fresh air flow.If preferred, Cranked Ridge Fittings can also be used as an alternative fitting to the curved ridge, to create the same benefits of the raised ridge. Although the curved ridge provides a more aesthetically result. The airflow can be adjusted to suit all building sizes by the height of the ridge.

A full range of alternative ventilation systems are available from Briarwood products so please contact us if you require assistance.
