Light ridge with excellent daylighting performance that doubles up as vent
The Skytex light ridge is a product from the HUESKER Light and Air range. Alongside the intelligent Lubratec® wind protection/ventilation systems and Ventitec® high-volume fans, the light ridge plays a key role in optimizing the indoor environment of livestock houses.
The stable, round-arch assembly with the UV-resistant membrane achieves optimum light diffusion through the 13 ft 2in - 23 ft (4-7 m) wide opening while minimizing direct sunlight and solar gain, thus preventing the air from heating up. High wind deflectors and large openings additionally ensure efficient air extraction.
HUESKER is certified according to DIN EN 1090 for the company’s own production control. In accordance with the regulation (EU) no. 305/2011 for construction products, load-bearing steel and aluminum structures, such as the Skytex light ridge, have to be produced according to the harmonized standard DIN EN 1090.
