In the poultry and farming sectors, the efforts to maintain maximum animal comfort are objectives that we strive to achieve and improve daily. This is achieved, among other things, with clean, safe facilities and an adequate temperature throughout the year.
The construction of the facades and roofs of the farms has a decisive influence in achieving optimum comfort for the animals, allowing the buildings where they live to be efficient and productive. In addition to this, most of the heat and cooling losses that occur through the building contribute directly to increased energy costs. This, in turn, leads to higher costs of production, air conditioning, maintenance and internal losses.
In this way, IsoCindu has focused on maintaining within its construction solutions products made with resistant materials that achieve the ideal characteristics to achieve the comfort, efficiency and productivity that the sector demands in its farms and warehouses.
1. Ideal indoor temperature
The first thing that farm construction experts demand is that the roofs and walls of a farm should be thermally insulated. This ensures an ideal indoor temperature for the animals all year round. The rigid polyurethane foam (PUR or PIR) from which IsoCindu panels are made offers the thermal insulation factor superior to other systems or building materials on the market today. Its insulating properties, together with a correctly performed installation, guarantee this good energy efficiency and help to maintain the air quality inside the building.
2. Resistance to chemical agents
Ammonia, resulting from the mixture of animal feces and urine, is very aggressive and can affect both the condition of the facilities and the welfare of the animals. The panels must therefore be resistant to these chemical agents without rusting. IsoCindu meets this need with the performance of its 95% closed-cell polyurethane foam, which is characterized by an excellent resistance to mold and fungi, but with the advantage of a metallic and PVC coating that acts as a waterproof protector and avoids a fertile ground for the proliferation of bacteria and spores. Besides being resistant to aggressive chemical agents generated by animals.
3. Clean and disinfected environments
Keeping the building in perfect hygienic conditions is essential to maintain the good health of both the animals and the farm personnel, as well as to contribute to a greater durability of the facilities. For this purpose, it is necessary to look for long-lasting materials that can be easily cleaned and disinfected.
The IsoCindu panel system remains one step ahead of any other building material. It is characterized by simple maintenance, is easily washable and offers better hygiene and innocuousness, avoiding food and animal damage at very low cost. Not to mention the ease and flexibility of the panel to be replaced in case of serious damage, without the need to demolish an entire wall.
4. Resistance and durability to weather conditions
The materials that make up the external face of the facade or roof of the building must be resistant to mold, aggressive external agents, adverse weather conditions and mechanical actions, keeping the structure and installations intact and reducing condensation and water infiltration problems.
IsoCindu's solutions, with elements such as pvc and aluminum, improve the performance of the panels, guaranteeing resistance to external agents, keeping the structure intact and making farm buildings last longer.
5. Acoustic comfort.
The polyurethane foam used in the insulation panel is a synthetic sound-absorbing polymer that helps reduce sound wave reflections and improve the acoustic quality of an environment, reducing the echo and reverberation effect that can be caused by rain, hail and external noises from heavy vehicles or machinery, a feature that helps animals inside farms and sheds to reduce the level of stress.
6. Installation and savings
The insulating panel is mainly part of a constructive system, where accessories, fittings and specific finishes are included to solve the essential needs of each sector, including the livestock sector, with the main objective of offering savings.
This makes it possible to quickly rebuild old farms that are currently still covered with obsolete materials full of asbestos, reducing downtime and with it the costs generated by the construction of the farm itself and recovering the investment as soon as possible.
