Why PVC Panels are a Better Choice for Dairy, Hog & Poultry Farms than Other Alternatives?

08 April, 2018

Gone are the days when animal farms used to be in large, open fields or spaces with a temporary structure. This structure provided just the basic protection from the forces of nature. But the hygiene and health of the animals were rather overlooked. However, things have changed drastically with time. Modern animal farms need to comply with many safety standards and regulations.

Whether it is for agricultural applications or livestock containment, using the right ceiling and wall materials is critical to ensure safe handling of animals in a sanitized environment. This is where PVC panels step in. Let’s see why Duramax PVC panels are a better choice for dairy, hog and poultry farms than other materials like wood and FRP panels.

Excellent durability and strength – Whether used for the walls or for the ceiling of the containment, PVC panels are extremely tough and can easily withstand weather extremes and difficult operating conditions. As such, these panels last for a very long time without any severe damage.

Lower cost – Thanks to the rising cost of lumber and labor, wood has become an expensive option for constructing and maintaining animal farms and confinement facilities. Fiber Reinforced Panels or FRP isn’t very cost effective either, given the high material and installation costs. Plus, FRP is not resistant to moisture and mold.
PVC is an ideal low-cost solution for building animal farms. And since it lasts for a long time, it saves money on maintenance and repairs.

Easy to clean and maintain – Animal containment needs to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis to maintain safety and hygiene. Cleaning PVC panels is extremely easy and simple. Plain soap and water is enough for daily cleanups, while bleaching and pressure washing can also be done without any risk of damage. After washing, PVC panels easily drain off the surface, so there are no chances of moisture accumulation. Additionally, PVC panels don’t need refinishing or repainting.

Germ-resistant qualities – Materials like plywood or wood are susceptible to various kinds of bacterial growths. Being 100% moisture proof, PVC panels cut down this risk to minimum. Therefore, the livestock is likely to remain protected from disease-causing bacteria and other microbes in PVC paneled containments.

Non-corrosive and impact resistant – Dirt, chemical, and animal waste are common in an animal containment. However, none of these factors have any kind of corrosive impact on PVC panels. Also, PVC panels can endure strong forces and impacts without undergoing any kind of damage, dents or scratches.

Bright finishing – PVC wall panels and linings help to enhance the interior of the containment and reflect maximum light, making space look brighter. The best part is — you don’t need any extra coat of paint to achieve these results. PVC panels that are used in animal containments are typically bright white in color.

When you consider these factors, it’s easy to see why PVC panels are an ideal choice for dairy, poultry and hog farms.
