The specialty

Claw abrasion & improved grip

Abrasive walking area floorings create optimized claw abrasion, very similar to conditions in nature, where sandy constituents in the elastic soil ensure that horn formation and abrasion are kept balanced.

Walking area floorings with abrasive surface

With pediKURA the abrasive agent corundum is incorporated into the surface and thereby promotes gentle claw abrasion. The corundum also ensures even better sure-footedness with animal-friendly softness.

Abrasive corundum

› The second hardest mineral after diamond
› Does not react with acids and bases: best precondition for use in slurry environments
› Patented technology which has been well-proven in the KRAIBURG group for many years
› An exceptionally high level of sure-footedness has been proven in practice

What makes walking areas sure-footed?

That's what our customers say:

Cows move well on the mats
Cows move well on the mats

The quality of the KURA and pediKURA P mats is good. We still have the original mats from 2009 in the cattle house, and they show no signs of wear. The cows move well on the mats. Claw care is now more prophylactic, more about checking the claws.”

Excellent slip-resistance
Excellent slip-resistance

Thanks to the softness of the KURA P mats, the cows don’t injure themselves, even if they occasionally slip when mounting each other. They are very sure-footed and slip less on the pediKURA mats.”
