Ridge Exhaust Systems

Chimney Ridge Exhaust Systems









Our forefathers used natural ventilation to ventilate their farm buildings. Principally, fresh air is brought in through a sidewall opening and the natural convection of the warmed air rises and is drawn out through chimneys or ridge openings. Sun-North has created various sizes of insulated poly chimneys that are ideal for this application along with long ridge door and lite panels that can regulated this exhausting of air through the peak of the building. Natural light is very beneficial for healthy livestock and the ridge is a valuable point for light entry

Air Movement Systems

Air Movement Systems









Natural ventilation is the ideal solution but there are situations that require power assistant to create a healthy livestock environment. This can take the form of fans mounted in chimneys or fans in end walls to create tunnel ventilation. In some barn designs both natural and forced air or fans would be used to create the optimum environment. Some may need natural and ceiling circulating fans. Where the density of animals is very high such as caged poultry layer barns then forced air through fans and forced air inlets may be the only answer.
