At Tegral, we understand at certain times through the seasonal calendar natural light can alter in livestock environments. Natural light is an element not to be overlooked when thinking about our animals welfare and for this reason the more we can replicate the natural environment inside a livestock building, the better it is for the animals.
We have been investigating and researching innovative ways that we can help to improve the living conditions for animals whilst retaining the performance of the building and not adding additional overheads like electricity and maintenance. After a number of different experiments, we have managed to create a coating that is applied to the underside of our fibre cement sheets, resulting in an increase of natural light within the building. Tests have proven that in all scenarios natural light is increased dramatically. This new product will be perfect for dairy units and stables in particular.
In addition to this improvement, if the correct amount of translucent sheets are used on a building, then we can get even closer to replicating the natural light outside a building. This is an exciting and cost effective application for Profile 6R and Profile 3 products and can be used with any painted sheet colour option.
