    The benefits of Reflective Insulation in Poultry Houses, Dairy Barns and Hog Barns.

    Keeping farm animals and livestock warm in the winter and cool in the summer is of vital importance. Insulation4Less offers reflective insulation products that protect poultry houses, dairy barns and hog barns from black-globe effect. Prodex Total Insulation is flexible, easy to install and it is a farmer's problem solver.

The Black-Globe Effect
    A little known natural phenomenon called the "black-globe effect" has a pronounced stress factor relating to the cost efficiency (or inefficiency) of weight gain in meat producing animals and birds. Whether an animal is outdoors or indoors, in temperatures exceeding 78° F, it absorbs a tremendous increase in radiant energy from the sun. Although the animal may be confined to a building, the "black-globe effect" on the animal is the same as if it were actually 10 to 20° F higher than air temperature. Studies show that with the elimination of the "black-globe effect" through the use of reflective foil insulation, many improvements are immediately apparent. In the dairy industry, an increase of as much as 10% in milk production has been noted. Also noted; a conception rate improvement of nearly 24%. Broiler house feed conversions went from averages of 2.3 to 2.8 lbs. of feed per lb. of bird to a much improved 1.99 feed conversion.
    Many growers are finding that their animals grow faster and more efficiently after installing Prodex Total Insulation. Death losses from heat are greatly reduced. The illustration to the right shows how an animal is heated even though the air temperature may not rise much. In winter, indoor heat is reflected back into the living space to produce greater comfort and energy savings.

    There are many other good reasons to install barn insulation. While the main reason to install barn insulation is to keep indoor temperatures comfortable for both humans and livestock, properly installed barn insulation will also mitigate moisture problems and air infiltration issues. All barns, including those that are storage only, should use reflective foil insulation to control condensation as the major part of a strategy to protect the barn contents from damage.

    To protect your investment in livestock, crops and equipment, use a combination of reflective aluminum insulation and ventilation to maintain consistent indoor temperatures. Use reflective building insulation in all poultry houses, dairy barns, hog barns, stables, silos, outbuildings, storage sheds, storerooms, and steel buildings.
