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

Dry walking areas

Healthy, intact skin in the claw area provides crucial protection against infectious claw diseases such as digital dermatitis and interdigital phlegmon (panaritium). It is therefore necessary to keep the walking areas – and thereby the claws – as dry and clean as possible. This can be best achieved through an integrated slope in the walking alley to allow liquids to run off and help keep the surfaces dry. In order to ensure sufficient slip resistance for the animals, rubber flooring is essential.

KRAIBURG rubber flooring allows for a slope in the walking alley

Proven option: cross slope with urine-collecting gutter

Urine quickly drains off by means of a concreted
cross slope with a central urine collecting gutter
and walking areas stay drier overall. Better surefootedness requires rubber flooring, ideally with
corundum for additional grip. Compared to  conventional paved / concrete walking areas, an emission reduction of approximately 20 % can be achieved thanks to this solution.

All in one mat: slope, drainage and optiGrip surface

With profiKURA 3D, a slope of about 3 % is achieved
by installing the mat. This way, walking alleys can be
concreted flat in the same way as conventional walking alleys. This solution is therefore also suitable for retrofitting in existing barns. As the flooring has no deep profiling, it is easy to clean with the scraper. At the same time, the abrasive soft surface provides the necessary slip resistance even in very dry floor conditions.

"The cross slope to the central guide is a simple and clean system! Because the flooring has no deep profile, the scraper achieves excellent cleaning results. In addition, the profiKURA surface gives the cows very good grip."
