Roll-A-Way (RAW) - The RAW curtains have a permanently mounted floating bottom aluminum roller tube. As the curtain lowers from the top down, the excess curtain material continually wraps on the rolling bottom tube, allowing the fabric to stay tight in all positions from fully open to fully closed.
RAW curtains are available in sizes from 3'-10' high and offer wind support with nylon cord or pipe. They can be operated manually with a 3 position switch (open-off-close), or automatically with a Faromor thermostatic controller. This system gives you the ability to maintain your barn environment regardless of the weather.
Goat Industry Ventilation
Top Down (TD) - Curtains are permanently fastened at the bottom of the opening and lowered (opened) from the top. In cold weather the initial air enters high on the sidewall to ensure ventilation with minimum draft. This economical single curtain system is often employed for dairy and beef cattle housing.
TD curtains are available from 3'-8' heights with a variety of wind protection systems. They are fastened at the bottom, and lower from the top on a cable pulley system. End pockets are fully adjustable making any future repairs easier to manage. They can be operated manually or automatically.
Split Curtain Systems - A Split Curtain System is used where a single curtain cannot adequately cover the high sidewall opening (12'-18'). Smaller curtains are more convenient to manage, and larger curtains will have the tendency to flap more in the wind resulting in noise and extra wear on the curtain.
Most often, a RAW/BRU or BRU/BRU split curtain is used where the lower curtain is considered a "temporary wall" which is usually down through out most of the winter, and open through out the summer. For this reason the lower curtain is often operated manually whereas the upper curtain is operated automatically.
MaxAir - This next generation system operates as a single curtain for openings up to 14'. For these larger openings the material rolls on and off an aluminum tube in the center of the opening which keeps the curtain fabric tight in all positions.
The MaxAir curtain is also available with an optional pipe drive operating system that uses a rotating pipe along the top of the curtain with grooved drums for the drop cables. This eliminates the main cable at the top of the system and the pulleys for the drop cables which will lower service and maintenance requirements.
FRP Chimney - Higher air exit velocity of the chimney, achieved with less ridge opening, result in more equal air exchange throughout the structure.
The FRP Chimney is available in three sizes - 24", 30", and 36" - and has a fully insulated duct section. The large 60" x 60" FRP Chimney's plastic molded roof is the largest in the industry and allows for large coverage to reduce rain and snow entry into the chimney. It can be peak or slope mounted. If dampers are used, they can be joined together in a series and operate either manually or automatically.
Skylight System - The Faromor Skylight System is a fixed mount skylight made from corrugated polycarbonate sheets with aluminum joiners.
This skylight provides natural lighting from the ridge that when combined with the Faromor FRP Chimneys gives you the lighting benefit of an open ridge with the ventilation benefits of an insulated chimney.
SolarVu Panel - Fabricated from aluminum, these panels are light weight and offer a high quality appearance. The panel tracking system ensures a smooth vertical 'open & close' operation over relatively large uninterrupted openings.
Faromor SolarVu Panels come in heights from 24" - 72", and are popular in dairy facilities, especially in parlours, holding areas and calf barns. They can be operated manually or automatically.
ClearVu Panel - ClearVu Panels offer the same high quality welded aluminum frame and operating hardware as the SolarVu Panels, but are glazed with a crystal clear acrylic sheet making it a popular choice for Tie Stall dairies, as well as parlours and holding areas.
Faromor ClearVu Panels are available in heights from 24" - 72", and can be operated manually or by automatic power drives connected to a thermostat.
VIP Panel (VIP) - Faromor VIP Panels are constructed from 1-1/2" polystyrene with white embossed fibreglass skins and capped with PVC channels. These insulated wall panels are used in those applications where heat loss and freezing concerns outweigh the benefits of natural light. Should natural light still be desired these panels can be equipped with fixed thermal insert windows.
The VIP Panel operates vertically as a moveable ventilation wall for poultry barns. These panels permit non-interrupted side wall openings, and can be operated manually or automatically.
HVLS Fans - HVLS fans are the ideal solution for cooling and ventilating large open livestock barns that can become stifling on a hot summer day. They also provide an ideal means to distribute warm air from overhead heat systems during the colder months.
Barns with large always-open doors, or an open shed type of construction, can reap the benefits of this efficient and cost effective technology. One AirVolution fan costs about a nickel an hour to operate.
Exhaust Fans - When designing a proper ventilation system you want to transition from minimum to maximum ventilation as smoothly as possible. The 72" exhaust fan, with optional Variable Frequency Drive, goes from 10,000 CFM to 65,000 CFM, making it the most versatile fan in the market.
Exhaust fans are ideal for tunnel or exhaust ventilation in dairy facilities.
