What is a comfort mat?

The previously undefined term "comfort mat" has already been used as a basis for funding decisions in the
past. But when can manufacturers declare their product as a comfort mat? Which technical and animal-related criteria must be met? A DIN standard published in April 2020 provides clarity here.

DIN 3763 – uniform standard for cattle house mats with "comfort classes"

Products must meet certain standards in terms of durability (e.g. abrasion resistance, acid resistance) and animal welfare (e.g. slip resistance) to be compliant with the DIN standard. The norm furthermore allows manufacturers to assign their mats for lying areas to one of four comfort classes, according to elasticity (deformability in mm).

Minimum requirement clearly defined!

Future decisions need no longer be based solely on marketing statements regarding comfort and durability.
Rather, uniform standards bring transparency to the market and make it easier to choose the right product.

The new standard can also serve as a basis for decisions for funding programmes.

That´s certain: From now on, the minimum requirement for the comfort of the mats according to DIN is defined clearly and simply.

KRAIBURG mats are DIN-compliant
