Our design library and experience allows us to customise a shed fitout specific to your needs.
By curving the board shape from a conventional straight system, front-fill catching pens are better implemented and allow for simpler filling throughout shearing due to sheep following the curved design. Another benefit is the reduced walking distance for wool handlers and roustabouts moving between stands, bins, wool tables or press, reducing time and effort to get the job done.
ProWay have designed and installed sawtooth as well as individual straight sections on radial curves for clients requiring anywhere from 2 to 12 stands and have the capability to custom design to suit individual requirements.
With a curved board, shearers effectively have more space than a conventional straight board. Each shearer has an individual work area, including a large shelf for combs, cutters, tool boxes etc. Shearers work in relative close contact with each other and can move around the board freely to assist others during difficulty. They also have a greater view of their co-workers with an unobstructed view of the whole wool room.
With curved sawtooth designs the shearers length of drag for each sheep is reduced but most importantly the need to turn when dragging is also minimised. Research has shown that turning while dragging is a major cause of back and knee injury.
All stands have an individual electrical cut out button in case of an emergency.
