Purpose: to provide heat closer to bird activity via hot-water piping.  By only emitting heat where it’s needed most (at bird level) growers reduce propane usage by 75%.

 Advantages:Radiant NC Floor 033

  • Provides even heat for each bird
  • Initial heat time is greatly reduced, therefore fossil-fuel energy consumption is significantly reduced
  • When zone proposed, the system acts as an attractant to draw birds into feed and water areas
  • Reduces bacteria/virus present in the litter
    • Provides a 135°F consistent floor temperature 3 days before bird placement
  • Reduces litter usage
    • Less required initially
    • Moisture wear-and-tear is reduced
    • Heat reduces/eliminates fecal moisture
  • House exhaust and atmospheric ammonia significantly reduced
