The Right Side Curtain for your Needs

VVS side curtain systems make use of freely available natural fresh air. The position of the curtains can be altered to:

  • exchange stale air with fresh air
  • reduce the temperature if it is too high
  • protect from cold air and draughts
  • provide shelter from wind rain hail or snow
  • provide shade (S8 system)

VentLogic automatic VVS control systems make use of temperature, wind speed, wind direction and rain sensors to ensure that the climate within the building is continually optimised. This leaves herdsmen free to focus on other jobs.

Cattle & VVS
  • Total ventilation control for dairy, pigs, beef, goats
    and equestrian buildings
  • Optional weather station for automated control
  • 10 year guarantee

System Types

Not all systems are available in all countries. Contact your dealer/distributor for further information. 

  1. VVS R7 (Rolling)

    VVS R7 (Rolling) side curtain system opens from the top and rolls onto a bottom or middle rolling tube. The system provides maximum weather protection. Where the building has a roof overhang, ventilation can be provided without rain entering the building. Available in two versions, depending on the ventilation height:

    Bottom Rolling – the curtain is rolled on a single flute tube mounted at the bottom of the curtain system.
    Middle Rolling – The curtain is rolled on a double flute tube mounted in the middle of the curtain.

    Ideal where warm air needs to be released from high in the building and animals need to be protected from cold and draughts (calves, goats, dairy cows and pigs).
    All systems are electrically operated as standard and can be semi or fully automated.

         

  2. VVS B6 (Basic)

    VVS B6 (Basic) can be regarded as an economy version of the R7 Rolling system. It is a side curtain system which opens from the top and rolls onto a bottom rolling tube.

    The system provides maximum weather protection. Where the building has a roof overhang, ventilation can be provided without rain entering the building.

    Ideal where warm air needs to be removed from high in the building and animals need to be protected from cold and draughts (calves, goats, dairy cows and pigs).

    Available options are limited to manual, electric, semi or fully automated. Bird net can be supplied on a roll ready to be stapled to the inner control.

    The B6 (Basic) utilises the building as part of the VVS construction and for that reason inner curtain controls will not be supplied by Galebreaker; the customer is free to choose between timber/steel or bird net.

    Can be supplied as a component system.

       

  3. VVS C5 (Climbing)

    VVS C5 (Climbing) side curtain system opens from the bottom and rolls onto a bottom or middle rolling tube with a climbing motor.

    A compensating mechanism in the telescopic coupling means the curtain does not need to be tensioned or readjusted. It can also move slightly under heavy wind loads reducing the risk of damage. (The system does not conform to door regulations and cannot be used as a door.)

    Electrically operated and can be semi or fully automated. Works well with heavy rolling materials. Easy to install.

    An ideal solution where there is no protection from an overhanging roof.

    When the curtain is open, systems can be used which mechanically apply straw, sand or wood-dust materials onto the bedding area.

    When partly open the curtain protects the building from rain but fresh air can still enter at animal height (suitable for animals that can tolerate draught e.g. beef cattle).

     

  4. VVS S8 (Shade)

    VVS S8 (Shade) side curtain system can combine ventilation and shade. The curtain opens from the top and can also open from the bottom to create shade and to direct airflow. The fabric rolls onto a bottom or middle rolling tube. The system operates with a climbing motor.

    Designed for large openings and provides maximum protection from bad weather. Electrically operated and can be automated.
    Each system supplied with a TST14 control box which is used for positioning the curtain to provide shade and to open the curtain from the bottom. (The TST14 is not connected to weather sensors).

    Available in two versions depending on height:

    Bottom Rolling – the curtain is rolled on a single flute tube at the bottom of the curtain system.
    Middle Rolling – The curtain is rolled on a double flute tube mounted in the middle of the curtain.

       

  5. VVS D2 (Drop)

    VVS D2 (Drop) is an economical, easy to install side curtain system which opens from the top. It is regarded as the entry level VVS system in Galebreaker’s product line.

    Instead of rolling a sheet onto a tube, the D2 (Drop) system uses gravity to open the curtain. The sheet is weighted using tubes inserted into pockets at each end and when opened it naturally pleats neatly at the bottom. The sheet is opened or closed using a top cable which is driven by a hand winch or optional electric motor. Electrically operated systems can be automated as an option.

    A suitable alternative to rolling systems in buildings where straw, sand or wood-dust materials are applied mechanically onto the bedding area.

    Can be supplied as a component system. This option has a pocket for the top tube instead of a fluted tube making it suitable for use with 34 mm galvanised tubes which can be sourced locally.

     

     Supplied with cable control only

     

  6. VVS F4 (Fold)

    VVS F4 (Fold) is a low cost side curtain which opens from the top and slides down, controlled by distance keepers. The sheet comes to rest in three sections. The curtain’s sewn-in straps are connected to side guide rails with trolleys.

     

    F4 (Fold) is similar to the D2 (Drop) but the curtain folds in a controlled way which causes less stress to the fabric. The trolley system helps prevent wind damage.
    Can be installed on the outside of a lower wall making it suitable when building construction posts are in line with the lower wall. In this configuration all of the opening is available for ventilation.
    Easy to install. The system operates via a draw cable driven either manually using a hand winch or electrically as an option.
    A suitable alternative to top opening rolling systems in buildings where straw, sand or wood-dust materials are applied mechanically onto the bedding area.

       

     Can fold on the outside of a lower wall
