Rubber Mats Improve Cattle Performance
Beef producers with slat-over-pit barns report rubber mat systems greatly improve cattle comfort and have numerous health benefits compared to bare concrete slat floors. These include reduced lameness as well as reduced cold and heat stress. The improved cattle comfort and confidence associated with rubber floor systems leads to higher rates of gain, better feed conversion and higher profit potential.
Superior Quality Rubber Mats
EasyFix rubber mats are manufactured from a higher percentage of virgin rubber than any other comparable products. In addition, EasyFix rubber mats are vulcanized. This means that EasyFix mats are formed in a chemical process where heat and pressure are used to bond the rubber at the molecular level similar to the way in which heavy truck tires and industrial conveyor belts are produced. This ensures superior tensile strength over other mats commonly available for agriculture.
While vulcanized EasyFix mats may cost a little more, they provide you with the longest possible service life, superior tractive performance and excellent cattle comfort.
Sure-Footed Rubber Mat Design
There are no additional fasteners required – the rubber is held in place by means of the rubber wedge, ensuring a tight, secure fitting. Even the heaviest and most aggressive bulls are unable to shift the rubber once it is in place.
Easy to Install
The patented two-strip system covering two slats and one gap ensures good coverage while optimizing gap openings. And the unique wedge system means that EasyFix Slat Rubber is an easy DIY install for beef producers like you. If DIY is not right for you, simply call (800) 213-0567 to request an installation estimate.
EasyFix Slat Rubber comes with a five-year warranty. Plus: pro-rated warranty from years six to eight effective from August 2012.
