Facts worth knowing about KRAIBURG rubber floorings / mats for cows, bulls and calves

Calf rearing: Renovation of slatted floors

In the following example the concrete slatted floor (3 cm slit width) has been covered with the soft rubber covering KURA S and therefore fulfills the following legal requirements:

German regulation for keeping calves on slatted floors (TierSchNutztV § 6):

  • foot-sure & slip-resistant floor
  • lying area: should avoid heat dissipation
  • floor must not pose a risk for claw and joint injuries
  • allowed slit width:
    • concrete: 2.5 cm
    • elastic covering: 3 cm

 

Before renovation

Before renovation the slit width in the concrete slatted floor was 3 cm which is not allowed in calf rearing

After renovation

The concrete slatted floor was covered with tailor-made KRAIBURG KURA S rubber mats, 3 cm slit width in rubber flooring is allowed in calf rearing

KURA S mats were installed on the slatted floor:

The pictures show how KRAIBURG KURA S slatted floor coverings are installed, they are fastened with rubber pegs

The tailor-made mats are exactly laid and fastened on the rubber floorings.

This is how the tailor-made manufacturing of the slatted floor covers works:
