Insulation:

We highly recommend insulation especially on farrowing arks. The arks have extra braces lined with 5.5mm ply. Recycled wool insulation is then put in the cavities before fitting the sheets this helps keep those animals or poultry vulnerable to the cold cosy and warm in winter and cooler in summer.

Please add the following costs per ark:

8ft x 6ft £125.00
8ft x 8ft £150.00
8ft x 10ft £175.00
8ft x 12ft  £175.00

Ventilation:

A 2ft x 3 ft window is cut out of the back allowing air to flow through the ark, thereby helping to keep respiratory diseases at bay. Galvanised hinges are used to keep the window open and when not needed the window can be bolted shut. Useful also for arks that are going to be positioned where there is limited or no shade.

All sizes £50.00

Loading Bar:

A loading bar is fitted on all of the 8 x 10 and 8 x 12 standards and removable floor arks. . Should you require a loading bar on any of the other sizes these can be fitted for a modest cost.

Loading Bar = £25.00

Green Sheets:

Ideal for conservation areas and woodland settings where galvanised sheeting would not be appropriate.

Farrowing Crèche:

An absolute godsend for keeping piglets in a safe environment, yet at the same time allowing them to come out of the ark, as well as enabling the sow to come and go as she pleases. Made from galvanised steel, the crèche is 4ft long by 4ft wide and approximately 15 inches tall, and bolts easily onto the front of our arks.

SONY DSCPig Sorting Panels

Specially developed polyethylene panels for starting piglets and fattening pigs. The front is completely smooth making it easy to clean for example by a high pressure cleaner. The construction of the panels makes them very strong and durable. Polyethylene is a durable, non corrosive material that cannot rot. It is also very light, making the panels easy to handle. Every panel has several rounded handles on two sides, so the panels can be handled in various positions. This makes them easy to use for anybody in any situation.
