POULTRY HOUSE

Niagara Falls

SUPERTHERM ® applied to the roof of a 20,000 sqft poultry house in Niagara Falls Canada, to help reduce the temperature. Current insulation materials (Cel Pak) being used in the houses become loaded with moisture from condensation and must be replaced every 5 years. SUPERTHERM ® coated houses eliminate condensation and will perform for 20 years without concern for reinsulation. SUPERTHERM ® provides the added environmental benefits of a reduced HEAT ISLAND EFFECT.

Heat stressed birds have reduced profitability in several different ways:
1. Increased mortalities - any direct loss is important as the cost of the chick is immediately lost, as well as any feed that has been ingested.
2. Lower and less consistent weights - heat stressed birds will not eat during the day. When temps. drop during the evening, the birds rush for the feeders, fight for position, and then gorge. Binge eating reduces potential gains, and due to fighting, smaller birds have less of a chance to eat, resulting in inconsistent weights that irritate processors.
3. Higher feed conversions - The greatest cost in poultry production is the feed cost. Due to energy losses of the birds trying to keep cool, as well as changes in feeding habits, poor feed conversions can strip a lot of profits from a flock.

SUPERTHERM ® Reduced attic temperatures by 30°, which helped reduce the death rate of Birds by 75%. Birds were also an average of one pound heavier in the SUPERTHERM ® coated house at the end of the grow season, which results in more cash value per bird.

SUPERTHERM ® was used on Cold Water Pipes inside the poultry house. The lines remain cool due to the moving water, and high heat and humidity inside the house can cause condensation to form on the outside of the pipes. This water drips onto the bedding, reducing litter quality. Wet litter can be a reservoir for disease. SUPERTHERM ® eliminates condensation, helping to prevent outbreaks of coccidiosis and enteritis.
