We are now in full swing of one of our favourite times of year … Lambing Season. With animal welfare at the forefront of our business, the natural ventilation properties of our fibre cement profiled roofing creates the perfect environment for your livestock to thrive. Not only benefitting the livestock, but also the reducing risk of diseases and protecting your Farm’s profitability.

Clever Design and use of Eurosix creates a Natural Ventilation System
White Tree Farm in South Wales contacted Briarwood to offer advice and recommendations on appropriate roofing solutions for their new purpose built lambing shed and hay barn store.
Good ventilation and creating optimum conditions for the livestock were key considerations for White Tree Farm. Briarwood were able to visit the Farm to recommend the best materials for the project.
Over 520m2 of EUROSIX reinforced fibre cement roof sheeting was specified to cover the duo pitch roof as well as a run of ventilated crank crown ridges to provide the best environment for the lambing shed and hay barn store.
In addition to the natural ventilation provided by the fibre cement roofing, the building was designed with one completely open side vertical detail and traditional Yorkshire boarding on the remaining vertical details, to allow a maximum flow of air from eaves to ridge.
The farm were very pleased with the clever design with a natural ventilation system. The building promoted effective air flow, allowing warm stale air to escape from the highest point of the building, whilst replacing it with a flow of fresh and clean air.
“Briarwood were involved from our initial planning stage and they were very knowledgeable on how we could design the building to create optimum conditions for our lambs. The vast stock and colour options available at Briarwood made it easy for the building to meet local planning and specification requirements. We are very pleased with the finished building.”
