Founder, Robert Lanning started his poultry profession aged just 18 and now, via six farms based in the West Country, his company currently produces more than 3.5 million chickens per year, housed in 24,250 mÂ˛ of indoor chicken production houses.
In terms of heating, woodchip was used previously, as an attractive fuel source when IHI incentives were in operation. However, recently this has declined and Robert wanted to move away from woodchip, due to it being dirty and difficult to handle, preferring to install indirect gas heating.
Robert initially looked at the Winterwarm system, but asked draperVENT founder Paul Draper for advice, having known him for many years and trusting in his judgement and expertise.
draperHEAT were able to integrate and create an indirect heating solution to support a 35k bird shed.
