Farmlite System Sheds New Light on Ryalls Farm

A 236m2 Farmlite GRP rooflight system from Brett Martin Daylight Systems has been installed on a new dairy farm building at Ryalls Farm in Stalbridge, Dorset, to ensure long term light transmission and durable rooflights that will stand the test of time.

Amongst 205 acres of farmland, the new 700m2 building, used to house 150 cows on Ryalls Farm, was in need of a high performance rooflight system – with Brett Martin’s Farmlite GRP rooflights providing the optimum solution for both the roofing contractor and client

“Rooflight sheets which had been installed at the farm previously had become cloudy over time and had therefore led to a decrease in light transmission,” commented roofing contractor Peter Gillett. “Advertised as staying clear for approximately 20 years, the Brett Martin Farmlite rooflight offered the best long term solution.”

Supplied by Briarwood Products, the Farmlite GRP was installed as 52 rooflights in four lines of 13 across the entire roof length. With the Farmlite installed alternately between each row of GRP roof sheets, this has allowed as much natural light into the building as possible to provide a healthy internal space for both animals and farm workers.

“I have been very pleased with how light the building has been,” commented Ryalls Farm Owner, Andy Gould. “I’ve also been very impressed with how well the rooflights performed in last winter’s storms, despite being very exposed on the top of a hill – they stood up to a fair battering from the elements.”

Utilising Brett Martin’s 50 years of experience in the design and manufacture of GRP rooflights, each Farmlite GRP rooflight comes with dual action UV surface protection and specially formulated UV resistant resins as standard, so the long term effects of weathering are greatly reduced and as a result the rooflights stay stronger and clearer for longer.

With the entire floor area and the building’s 150 cows set to benefit from a wealth of high quality natural light for many years to come, Brett Martin has helped another farmer to improve daylighting levels in their building whilst adhering to the UK and Ireland’s strict environmental regulations.
