When it comes to animal welfare, considerations often revolve around proper nutrition, healthcare, and suitable living conditions. However, one crucial aspect that can often be overlooked is the impact of roofing solutions on the well-being of animals kept outside. As a leading provider of roofing solutions, we can shed light on the profound effect the right roof can have on creating a happier environment for animals.

Whether you're a stable owner or caretaker of animals, selecting the right roofing solution is pivotal. Factors such as durability, ease of fitting, and acoustic benefits, including sound dampening, should all be considered in ensuring the well-being of the animals. The key to fostering good animal welfare lies in minimising disturbances and maintaining a peaceful environment.

Keeping noise to a minimum

Whether you are creating a new habitat from scratch or renovating an existing space, minimising noise is crucial in adverse conditions like rain or storms, particularly in animal shelters and farms.

Our popular ONDULINE CLASSIC roofing sheets excel in this aspect, providing up to four times more noise reduction compared to metal alternatives, helping to absorb sound better and create a more tranquil space for animals.

Weather protection

Animals, such as horses and chickens, are exposed to the elements daily. The right roofing solution acts as a protective shield against adverse weather conditions, ensuring that animals stay dry and comfortable all year round. Our roofing materials are designed to be weather-resistant, preventing leaks and maintaining a dry environment even during heavy rain. This is especially crucial for animals susceptible to respiratory issues or stress caused by prolonged exposure to wet and cold conditions.

Our ONDULINE DURO SX 35 sheets offer protection against strong winds, to ensure good animal welfare. To maintain a dry and secure environment for your animals, Onduline sheets also provide complete water tightness and are guaranteed, offering peace of mind against unnecessary leaks that could otherwise disrupt their habitat.

Temperature regulation

Proper insulation is vital for maintaining a consistent and comfortable temperature inside animal shelters. Our roofing materials offer excellent insulation properties, helping to regulate temperatures by preventing excessive heat build-up in the summer and retaining warmth during colder seasons. This ensures that animals are not subjected to extreme temperature fluctuations, which is particularly important for young animals, promoting their overall well-being and health.
