  • The Haven is the biggest advancement in the world of farrowing technology since the heat lamp. This innovative system uses a reflective heat shield mounted above a heating element and surrounded by curtains to create a uniform and nurturing environment for newborn piglets.

    The result, as multiple independent studies confirm: 20% reduction in pre-wean mortality and 50% less energy use. That’s why Haven is used and trusted by high-value producers, researchers, and genetics companies.

    Available in two configurations

  • NanoMat
    The Nanomat is built around a graphene panel that provides a consistent heat output of +30°f over ambient temperature at a max draw of 135w....

  • The NanoMat is a major innovation on a long-standing heat solution in the pork production industry. Our mat is built around a graphene panel that provides a consistent heat output of +30°f over ambient temperature at a max draw of 135w.

    Graphene is a unique material that provides decades of use in other heating applications thanks to its strong atomic bond. We guarantee years of dependable use in your barn, backed by our industry-leading 5-year warranty.

    The durable, double-insulated, and waterproof shell of the NanoMat makes cleaning fast and easy. The top surface is comfortable and consists of non-slip, nickel patterned texturing that ensures piglets get all the heat they need with a lower risk of injury.

    Compatible with all major room control systems. Custom temperature curves available upon request.

  • DownFire
    Cost-effective heating that's more consistent than traditional heat lamps....

  • The DownFire is a unique overhead farrowing heating solution for pork producers of all sizes. One DownFire unit provides enough even, comfortable heat for an entire piglet litter while keeping energy usage low.

    In contrast to high-maintenance heat lamps, the DownFire doesn’t require a single bulb change throughout its lifetime. That means a significantly lower cost to own and fewer man-hours needed for maintenance.

    The DownFire is made for all farrowing environments. Its lightweight yet durable housing is perfect for tight rooms and easy to clean. The top is insulated, preventing heat escape and ensuring safe handling.

    Two mounting options are available: Hang the DownFire from existing chains in your farrowing rooms, or mount it on the stall with its height-adjustable arms.

    Compatible with all major control systems. Custom temperature curves available upon request.

    Sentry Tracker

    The Tracker detects, reports, and logs common movement behaviors such as standing, lying, eating, and drinking, while the environment sensors keep a log of both the animal’s body temperature and the room temperature. When combined, this data provides new insights into the health of your herd and allows you to identify problems far earlier than humans can. Make treatment decisions and operational changes based on data, not observation.

    Sentry Tracker data can be stored and accessed on our Sentry Tablets or on a remote cloud server for access wherever and however you need it. Fine-tune and prove the performance and efficiency of your facilities and practices.

    • Detect animal behaviors
    • Monitor body and ambient temperatures
    • Identify problems early
    • Optimize your farrowing environment
    • 1-year battery life
