It’s well documented that avian species respond well when the photoperiod is regulated. Providing the right levels of light can increase hormone production and growth, leading to a healthier flock and increased profitability. LED lighting allows you to take control of your poultry shed environment. Lighting should be considered just as important as other environmental factors, including ventilation and temperature.

Why choose LED lighting?
Light levels have a significant impact on avian species. According to the Poultry Welfare Recommendations, poultry should have sufficient light to see and be seen, observe their surroundings and engage in normal levels of activity. LED lighting is one of the best and most efficient ways to ensure this. LED lights produce white light by combining blue light with red and green phosphors. This is the closest approximation to sunlight possible and allows flocks to grow and thrive naturally.
If you choose to upgrade your lighting to modern LED lighting, we aim to complete all work at turnaround. This means that the upgrade work can take place while your houses are empty, meaning you won’t need to disrupt day-to-day operations. Our team of electricians are highly-skilled in their craft and also adhere to strict health and safety procedures. With experience in the poultry sector, they also follow biosecurity guidelines to prevent cross-contamination.
