Slope in the walking alley –
simply through
a rubber mat!

Application

Paved / concrete walking alleys with scraper

Safety & healthy claws

KRAIBURG walking area floorings are specially adapted to the natural needs of cattle: they are animal-friendly soft, improve claw health and sure-footedness. The cows respond with higher activity and better productivity. Lameness-free cows are more fertile and save a lot of work and costs. Animal-friendly walking areas pay off!

Scraper manure removal

Most scraper models automatically adapt to the slope towards the walking alley centre or can be adapted in the inclination – to be checked with the manufacturer, if necessary.
In principle we recommend the use of scrapers specifically developed for rubber floors. For structural alterations it is necessary to adapt the scraper facilities in coordination with the scraper manufacturer according to the KRAIBURG guidelines for manure scrapers.

Important:

Check the scraper at least once a year and grind off the sharp edges!

Klauenabrieb und extra Grip mit Korund - KRAIBURG Laufgangmatten aus Gummi

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 profiKURA 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
