Insulation On External Walls !!!
A BH with heat protection shield using steel frame and zinc roofing material.
The said BH was said to be producing about 5 kg of nests per month.
While visiting a BH in Kota Bahru I was attracted to this BH that uses those steel frames with zinc roof sheets to protect its wall from direct sunlight.
This BH must be using only a single wall thus direct sunlight to the wall causes the BH to be hot internally.
The owner have little choice but to cover the whole walls with these zinc sheet.
You can see that the zinc sheets were installed on a kind of steel frame with an air gap of about 1 foot.
A very interesting observation and would like to share with all my blog readers.
If you BH internal temperature is above 30*C you might want to pursue this method of preventing direct sunlight shinning onto the external walls.
The lesser direct sunlight the lesser the temperature of the walls. This will reduce the heating effect on the internal walls of your BH.
Your main aim is to reduce your internal temperature to around 26*C-29*C.
If this method still could not reduce the internal temperature you need to consider to install those bubble sheet layer in the internal part of the BH walls.
Remember once your BH temperature shoots above 30*C you might loose all your valuable tenants.
