Portapig Single Farrowing : 8-20 crates per building

Portapig housing is a well established product and has now been manufactured for over 20 years. Over 900 houses have been manufactured and delivered to every corner of the UK and Ireland as well as European countries including France, Holland, Belgium and Germany.

Farrowing buildings can be supplied as a single unit to accommodate 6-20 crates. Any building can be further divided into separate rooms. For example an 18 crate building can be divided into 3 rooms with 6 crates in each, or a 20 crate building into 2 rooms with 10 crates in each. Single Farrowing buildings are often placed side by side and can be linked by a forward passage giving the same working environment as a large static building. Portapig Duo Farrowing buildings can be supplied in modules of 24/28/32/36 or 40 crates as one complete building and these can be subdivided into 2 or 3 individual rooms.

Modular Options

Finrone Systems Ltd Modular option allows Portapig buildings to be easily connected under one roof by creating a multi-access passage.

Internal passages are created with hygienic white internal walls and jointing panels, creating a pleasant allweather working environment for staff whilst allowing easy management of pigs.

The central passage can be created by joining the portable buildings end to end with a 2 - 4 metre gap as required. Modular builds also allow flexible future expansion, finished using high quality and professional materials which have already been tried and tested in our established range of Portapig buildings.

One option is shown in the diagram below. The diagram illustrates the farrowing and nursery combined, making the movement of pig and weaners very easy. The passage roof can include skylights providing more natural light, or a range of artificial light can be installed including low energy LED options. Finrone Systems Ltd can provide other bespoke flexible modular options ensuring your building meets your individual requirements.
