22 Jan Discover the Excellence of Pig Arks from Blackdown Buildings
Welcome to the Blackdown Buildings blog, where today we delve into the world of Pig Arks, a staple for the welfare and comfort of not just pigs, but also sheep and goats. Situated in the heart of the South West, Blackdown Buildings has carved a niche as the leading timber buildings company, dedicated to crafting superior quality, sustainable solutions for your livestock housing needs.
What are Pig Arks?
Pig Arks are innovative, arc-shaped shelters that offer pigs, and other livestock like sheep and goats, a safe and comfortable environment. The design of these arks is not just about aesthetics; it’s about creating a space where animals can thrive, protected from the elements, and in a structure that complements their natural behaviors.
What to Look for in a Quality Pig Ark?
When it comes to housing your livestock, quality and durability are paramount. Here’s what sets a top-tier timber pig ark apart:
- Sustainable and High-Quality Materials: The best pig arks are made from sustainable, pressure-treated timber. This ensures longevity and resistance to harsh weather conditions and pests.
- Robust Construction: Look for pig arks designed with durability in mind. Features like heavy gauge steel roofing and galvanized fixings contribute to an enduring structure that withstands the test of time.
- Thoughtful Design for Animal Welfare: Livestock need a comfortable living space. Quality pig arks are designed with features like a raised solid timber floor for warmth and dryness, and treated ply ends with a thick door frame to minimize chewing.
- Ease of Maintenance: Good pig arks are designed with the farmer in mind. Features like an easily detachable roof and widthways studs for forklift moving make maintenance and relocation a breeze.
