How does ThermaCote® protect your poultry and reduce your energy costs?
Thermal stress occurs when a chick’s body temperature rises above certain limits.
In Poultry Farming to achieve adequate animal welfare, we need to provide the animals with the right temperature. Thermal stress affects the stages of poultry development which causes an increase in the mortality of the chicks as well as a lower conversion of the food in growth or weight of the animal. In addition, it increases the predisposition of chicks to diseases. This type of stress also affects production by decreasing the amount of eggs, weight, and thickness of the shell. To achieve the optimum temperature, the cost for heating and cooling can be so high that profitability becomes drastically reduced.
If you are looking to protect your chicks from thermal stress and reduce your energy costs simultaneously, you should consider applying ThermaCote® in your poultry farm.
ThermaCote® is a thermal insulation coating.
ThermaCote® is a high performance thermal barrier, which incorporates ceramic technology to prevent the transfer of heat (or cold). The use of ThermaCote®, a thermal insulator, allows a reduction in the economic cost of the energy used in your farm by lowering the use of heating and cooling elements. ThermaCote® also directly contributes to a reduction in the mortality rate of animals. Thanks to the thermal comfort generated by the ThermaCote® insulator, animals achieve the ideal weight by consuming less feed and, in turn, increasing production. Additionally, the quality of the final product improves.
ThermaCote® protects from condensation on your farm due to its thermal insulation performance, reflectivity, airtightness, and high vapour permeability. Thanks to ThermaCote® your farm will remain drier and healthier.
