Windbreaks

Our standard windbreak offers the most cost effective solution to weather protection. They are manufactured with a tension based system using hooks and ratchets to fix the windbreak to the building. We recommend this product for areas that are relatively low in farm traffic or for high roofed areas not requiring daily access. 
 The standard windbreak has straps running horizontally at approximately half meter intervals to give added strength. Please note that as products are made to measure the depth varies widely and as such straps may be placed slightly differently depending upon your requirements.
 With a hook attached on one side and a ratchet with hook at the other, the windbreak can be tightened as necessary, and can be installed and removed easily for added convenience.
 All of these features will give you a lighter barn, excellent ventilation for livestock, protection from birds and vermin for hay, straw and grain - and all without letting the weather in.
 To ensure that your windbreaks fit as they should we ask for three specific measurements;
Span of the gap - NOT including any part of the stanchion, as this lets us determine the width that the windbreak needs to be for full coverage.
Depth required - this needs to be the complete depth of the gap you wish to cover - NOT the depth from roof to floor.
Width of the stanchion - this should be the width of the front face of the stanchion that the windbreak will attach to. This will determine the length of the strap ensuring it is not too short. If your windbreak will not attach to the front face of the stanchion please give us the length required from the inside edge of the stanchion (that the windbreak will be covering) to the point at which the hook will be attached. In some cases this will involve taking the strap around to the side of the stanchion.
