4-Way Insulated Inlet
Attic air is typically warmer than outside air on cold days. By installing ceiling inlets, producers can capitalize on solar heat trapped in their attics and ventilate poultry houses more during the day. Average turkey or chicken houses with ceiling attic inlets are capable of being ventilated 20 percent more than houses without ceiling attic inlets on cold days without experiencing the 20 percent increase in fuel usage that one might expect. In studies conducted in Georgia, producers experienced between 10 and 20 percent lower fuel usage compared to houses without ceiling attic inlets. Houses with ceiling attic inlets tend to be less drafty since the air from the attic is warmer than outside air. This means houses will have better moisture control, drier litter, and better air quality, and all this adds up to better bird performance.
From ease of installation to performance, the GC1140 4-Way Gravity Insulated Foam Ceiling Air Inlet is proving to be an exceptional poultry inlet. Designed for cold weather climates, the GC1140 4-Way Foam Insulated Inlet has a very tight rubber seal and minimal moisture build-up.
Correcting shortcomings of air distribution, the GC1140 Gravity Flow Inlet has no blades to break, fall out, or get stuck open or closed. Air enters the GC1140 inlet from the attic and is evenly distributed in all four directions into the poultry house. The air travels along the ceiling instead of falling directly onto the birds. The GC1140 Gravity Inlet gently mixes air without creating a draft resulting in even temperatures throughout entire room.
