Create a safe and comfortable stay for your pigs

Eternit have been manufacturing roofing sheets, designed for UK farmers and our unique climate for over 100 years. Our made semi-compressed sheets are designed to absorb 25% of their weight in moisture, this is more than all imported fibre cement sheets available in the UK today.

Build in sustainability
Consumers care more and more about animal welfare. That’s why it’s important you invest in a sustainable building adapted to your pigs’ needs. Give special attention to piglets and pregnant sows, they are more sensitive to climate variations.

When asked for advice in designing pig buildings, we know the overall result needs to be practical and safe, whilst keeping to your budget and specification. This considered, we want your agricultural building to fit in with its surrounding environment.

Make a sound investment
Pig buildings need to be able to withstand the aggressive and corrosive environments created by the pigs. Fibre cement is the ideal solution for this as it will not corrode in the ammonia rich environment. Another key benefit is the excellent thermal properties renowned with fibre cement, and will help in the objective of not letting the pigs get too hot or cold in the building.

Building design considerations must go beyond the look, function and flexibility. There are technical and practical aspects to look at which include orientation, ventilation, lighting and wildlife control, all of which, if not done correctly, can have a real long-term cost to a business. We have a technical team that has over 60 years of farming and building experience giving you ‘Peace of Mind’.

Eternit have been creating roof sheets used on pig buildings in UK for decades. We have the experience and heritage to help with your new building.
