Dura Trac Farrowing Floors

Dura Trac Floors are 100% Plastic Coated

Dura Trac® plastic coated farrowing floors are designed for traction and prevention of floor related injuries. All Dura Trac flooring is completely plastisol coated so it is never any colder than the temperature in the room.  The mesh allows for the feces to fall through to the gutter below, therefore the floors are simple and efficient to clean which eliminates bacteria buildup.

Dura Trac® Clearspan Farrowing Floors

The Clearspan Farrow floor is completely self supported; no additional support is necessary.  It features a two level construction.  Not only does the 1 inch center rise reduce crushing, it also allows the newborns easier access to underside nipples.  In addition, the 24 inch wide center sow area is wide enough for the sow, but not so wide to lose advantage of the raised center.  Furthermore, the wear areas are kept small and replaceable for minimal maintenance cost. As an example, the image below (left) shows the Clearspan Farrow Complete. This floor includes the basic unit, a welded rod sow section, and Dura Saver feed saver. The Clearspan legs are a great option for those who want the flooring elevated higher above the alley way.

NEW! Clearspan Farrow flooring is also available for turn-around crates. As can be seen with the picture below, the expanded metal Clearspan Farrow has a replaceable ‘V’ shaped center. Enlarge the images below by clicking on them.

Below is a picture of a farrowing barn during construction. In this instance, the creep sides have a custom area for the customer’s heat mat. The area is dropped down slightly less than flush. As a result, the piglets will have easy access to the heat mat but the sow is not able to kick it.

The Original floor is made to use with your supports.  Best of all, it works great for not just new building, but also for replacement flooring.  Custom options such as perimeter rod, notching, and holes are available to fit your needs.  A Dura Saver feed saver bolts on easily.

Healthy sows and increased weaning weights mean a larger profit.
