A stable is a building in which livestock, especially horses, are kept. The exterior design of a stable can vary widely, based on climate, building materials, historical period and cultural styles of architecture.
Horses are often kept inside barns which may be substantially hotter than outside temperatures due to radiant heating of the structure.
Despite their ability to sweat, horses still have difficulty cooling themselves when temperatures become extreme. Because of their large size, their body heat tends to accumulate faster than they can get rid of the excess. Especially in conditions of high humidity, when sweat no longer evaporates to cool the skin, horses are prone to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, which can be extremely dangerous.
MISTING SYSTEMS BENEFITS IN HORSES STABLES
An Italfog misting system, when installed in a barn, introduces a steady supply of water to the air in the form of ultra-fine droplets which evaporate before they hit the ground. A correctly installed misting system creates a curtain of mist, which can reduce temperatures in the immediate area by as much as 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit (depending on the outdoor temperature and relative humidity).
The best results from a misting system are achieved when the mist is produced in an area which already has good airflow.
Many people like to install a line of misting nozzles just under the eaves of the barn. In alternative the misting fans are a “cool” alternative. The use of misting fans help to guarantee a good airflow index.
