Infrared heating systems

For almost 40 years now, Alke has earned a worldwide reputation in advanced heating equipments for barns. More than 1.6 million gasfired Infrared heaters have already found their way to customers in over 90 countries worldwide. An optimal environment is of great importance to poultry. Especially the first days of a chick’s life are determining for the animals’ further development. Research has shown that the use of infrared heating stimulates the growth of young animals. This is because of the radiant heat that warms the animals. This radiation can be compared to the heat from the sun.
